    I don't get people who buy huge mcmansions in the exurbs in the middle of the friggin' nowhere, and then complain that their work commutes take too long. Guess what - you can safely "sacrifice" all that square footage you're never going to use for a smaller place closer to "civilization". And use public transit to commute.

      Pros

      Big fan of the mission statement, you get to work around extremely supportive and determined individuals to hit goals out of the park. Goals and metrics are fair. You can network internally with intelligent individuals around the world across all career streams.

      Cons

      I think that a commission based system would incentivize Account Managers more than a base salary with no bonus. You also get paid less for doing the same work as US counterparts (even if working the same market).
