      Pros

      Good earning potential. making own hours

      Cons

      Company still leasing systems to homeowners. No training. No back end help. Email threads that go nowhere. Takes months to get homeowners PTO due to lack of backend. Someone is always dropping the ball. Sales teams do not help each other. Also glassdoor sucks for making me post a review before I'm allowed to even look at company reviews
