    Pros

    Great people.
    Company morals are top notch.
    Flexible hours.
    Lots of trips for all employees.
    High commissions.

    Cons

    It is a networking, personal sales position for most of the company which can be difficult. You have to have a strong work ethic and be self motivated to do well in this job. Pay is based strictly on commission. You're pretty much on your own when it comes to the business side of things.
