    Pros

    When you do well you are definitely recognized and the trips are great.

    Cons

    Your a hero one day and loser the day. Upper Management along the East Coast is ruthless. You are definitely micro manage. They expect you to go door to door six days a week.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging, Stop all the conference calls. Support the staff.

    Pros

    None, NONE, none, absolutely nothing!!

    Cons

    Man oh man! The things I know and watched happen, can tarnish their name forever.

    They have outside employees paying past due claims and they arent licensed to do so.
    The product sucks and doesnt work!
    Out dated technology
    WAY under paid and NO bonuses!!!
    No growth/development system AT ALL!
    Promotions based on friendships not work ethic and 9/10 it's a lateral(no increase)move.
    Caters to "top performers" even if its outside of company's policy or law (witnessed).
    Horrible work ethic
    Outdated policies and procedures.
    They will DEFINITELY backstab you.
    Boardline racism/harrassment.

    Advice to Management

    Listen!!! Just listen!!!

    Oh and be more involved within the company opposed to "company" traveling.

    It has changed my life for the better! Gives financial freedom if you stick with it and work hard.

    Some long days and travel.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to have more classroom training and more online training while waiting for licensing. Also, more mentoring and management training for those in the frontline each day.
