    Pros

    Great pay and benefits as well as some great products.

    Cons

    The company hired sales managers from outside without giving opportunities to good tenured reps. This is one particular scenario where the managers need to have first hand experience with one of the products as a rep in the field before they can effectively manage their reps. There are a few good ones, but there are also a few of the worst managers I have ever seen in my career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within for sales managers.
