      Pros

      A relatively good training, depending on position or branch location. Good compliance & due diligence as part of large organisation.

      Cons

      Poor Staff retention and individuality - sadly just a number. Poor management interest in employee care, concerns or well being. Bully tactics to sell more 'add ons' rather than what may be the best advice for the client. Lack of motivation or recognition for staff members. Poor training and appointment choice of branch managers.
