      Pros

      Very varied job which does keep you on your toes

      Long hours, poor basic, have to be in a busy office to stand a chance of making money, quiet office then you're doomed.

      Pros

      Everything I have been promised around career progression happened. I have been supported throughout my time at Connells. I currently manage a team of 12 staff. And I find as a business we work really closely with our sales team members to achieve business KPI's. And help all different kinds of customers which allows the role to be refreshing. Commissions & bonuses are good. Support from the sale director is good.

      Cons

      Like any corporate company there will always be a flavour of the month. You are either up or your down, no in the middle. Solicitors can be frustrating.
