    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    Fully loaded company car
    Gas card can be used for personal use
    Floating holidays and 14 days PTO
    Paid company giveback opportunities

    Cons

    It is nearly impossible to move from a location you are moved to. When you go through the hiring process, they make it sound like you could make a lateral move if a more desirable location opens up. Don't count on it.
    Getting a promotion from TM to AE or DM is very political and dependent on your District Manager.
    Selling tobacco doesn't exactly give you the warm and fuzzy feelings.

    Pros

    Competitive Salary, investment to long-term development, benefit package, freedom

    Cons

    Needed mobility to move forward in career

    Advice to Management

    As a manager, I encourage other managers to be more open to honesty and candor, those demonstrating should be valued and those not comfortable being vulnerable should be coached.

    Pros

    Ongoing training and development. Opportunity to travel, but not all the time. Steady company that gives you all the tools to be successful. Despite selling a product that is in decline, you never feel as if massive cuts are coming.

    Cons

    Dirty job, must be willing to get your hands dirty. No real opportunity for advancement, but the salary is decent and increases with time.

    Pros

    This job provides a company vehicle (usually a fully loaded Ford SUV) with gas card for personal use, which is a huge bonus because you don't have to pay for gas or a car ever. This is a respectable marketing position that won't keep you in an office or behind a desk all day.

    Cons

    Older management doesn't catch up with trends. Dying, heavily regulated and vilified industry.

    Travelling often depending on the territory, sometimes national decisions don't translate well to the individual locations.

    A little more flexibility in terms of contracts would be nice

    Decent pay (especially for young people fresh out of college)
