    Pros

    Great pay and benefits and there was a lot of opportunity to climb the corporate ladder there. I also enjoyed all the celebrations and getting rewarded for good work.

    Cons

    Stressful sales goals made it a bad work environment. I felt the tension everyday. My manager had conference calls everyday just to explain what we were to doing to meet goals when we didn’t meet the sales goals.

    Advice to Management

    People are humans and not numbers. Stop treating employees like they are disposable.
