    Pros

    Beautiful office, friendly atmosphere, and great training program.

    Cons

    It is sink or swim. You are given the training and you have a development specialist, but if you are not doing well, you are not making any money.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more stipends for people just starting out or possibly a draw.

  2. A great opportunity for someone who loves to work independently & meet new people.

    Excellent training & examples of how to be successful.

    No base salary other than signing bonus.

    Advice to Management

    The Big Brother program is a great idea but there needs to be a selection process between the new rep & the Big Brothers to connect with similar personalities.
