    Very little BS. Very autonomous workplace.


    If company drops/loses lines, your income suffers; You are in direct competition with your workmates; other companies in industry provide better compensation plans

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Italian corporate owner needs to assess what it gives the US partner--Sales managers are poorly paid and must work a territory to make any money. This means the rep in that territory loses out on the accounts the manager keeps for himself. If you are a rep with unpopular name brands, your compensation is below minimum wage after paying your own expenses.
