      Pros

      It's all about the branch office. Your work environment and satisfaction comes from there.

      Cons

      No regular salary increases, poor pension plan, gas expense rates low. Must rely on your sales revenue and the BM's idea of splits to do any better. Again, it's all about the branch- you Can do very well if you have a great team.
