-Salary and bonuses are solid
-Very talented people in the salesforce that put their best foot forward
-flexible hours, as long as you put in the work
-weak corporate culture from the top, felt like there was no awareness of what is going on in the field and it shows. No work life balance, no real career advancement unless you want to live in MTL
-fluctuating targets, you'll achieve your number and then suddenly your target goes up due to another region/country/whatever coming short
-constant stress to hit a number, constantly fixing issues that you didn't create which harms customer relationships
-customers can take out their frustrations on you due to the above issues
Advice to Management
Invest in your support staff (IT, Customer service, replenishment etc.) Trade reps should not be expected to to wear every hat in the business, and to manage a multi-category product offering for the same salary as a rep with only one category in a different company.
