    Cons

    They went down the tubes. Hard. Their sales training for lower level employees could have been greatly improved, so they lost a significant significant potential for growth, incentive, and income.

    Pros

    I like the work hours, the training, and the team of people I worked with (both employee and management).

    Cons

    Part of my job was to collect from people that were going through some major hardships, i.e. loss of home , loss of a love one, and/or personal despair. That made it difficult to process my job.

    Advice to Management

    None
