    As along as your selling everything and numbers are up then ypur golden and all doors are open to you but the moment things go wrong and things as far as management goes they will cut loose ends and throw you out to the wolves no matter if it was your fault or not if your not brown nosing or in the "click" group then your dirt and less of the worth.
