    Cons

    - Long hours, this is not a 9-5 - Work life balance will be affected, especially in Sales - Fast paced, if you can't keep up this is not the place for you - High turnover, the job is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, the motivation managers give to all employees is awesome. Everyone is here for the same reason.
