      Pros

      Originally given opportunity to spend majority of time and focus on actual selling and appointments. Good basic.

      Cons

      Unrealistic unachievable targets, didn't receive commission promised. Worked well over 37 contracted hours. Too much emphasis and time being spent on on admin tasks and completing databases which detracted from crucial selling time. Too many internal politics as company was trying to change. Needs workforce re structure. Pressure was too much and especially for the pay rec'd.
