    Pros

    Great team and top level managers are helpful and understanding

    Huge turn over. No progress plan is defined and if you ask for career growth, you may hear the exact same words. Salaries are ridiculously low. If you wanna work in sales, you will be part of a failed team with a considerable turnover in midlevel management.
