    Pros

    - You get out what you put in, I have seen great opportunities, consistently, due to my hard work & effort
    - Accelerated learning approach to consultative and insight sales cycle
    - Very loyal alliance of employees, merchants and customers who participate in creating the unique culture
    - Market Leader in group buying industry comes with great tech tools, scope for future & growing mission
    - Global company resources and systems
    - Incentivise commission scheme to support direction of company mission
    - People many mentors, creatives, hard working, focused teams loving what they do every day, however the culture is very different from early start up days when passion was ripe. It is still there, but needs consistent empowerment.
    - Support is always available to those who ask for it

    Cons

    - Incredible work load if all the pros appeal to you, you are the master of your own results
    - High stress, very fast paced, change heavy environment
    - Development Pathways not clear enough to keep salesforce engaged (however speak up and you will go very far)
    - Global platform, little control over necessary changes
    - Remote offices struggle to connect with ANZ HQ
    - Internal communications can become stifling if time management is not a strength
    - High expectations for start up mentality when it is no longer a startup environment -- education is required

    Advice to Management

    - Support your salesforce pathways and create an open forum for such discussions
    - Mentor programme needs to return, crucial for my personal development and a shame it no longer exists
    - Open door management is not obvious to most employees
    - Spend more time in the field, your guys bleed green - Thank them for that more
    - Stay focused on your mission, the future is bright, change is inevitable and this can be managed better to stay true to that mission
