    Pros

    Small enough company that you are valued, employees are personable, the company is growing very fast, salaries are pretty decent, friendly faces

    Resources are scarce, no help desk phone number, insurance premiums are ridiculous, heavily east coast locations, training is very limits

    Support your field, update website, provide more training, allow visits to corporate office more than 3 x per year, laptops need update, cell phone service is shaky at different accounts

    Pros

    Some nice people.
    You can fake it and make it.

    Too many to list but it all starts at the top. The reason there are so many jobs open is because turnover is so high (employees and customer accounts).

    Advice to Management

    Time to sell.
