Very cool place to work, the management is awesome but when it comes to getting help, that might be a little slow. I feel like the training period should be longer and more detailed. The job overall isn't difficult but I just couldn't stay with a company that isn't as helpful and the pay is okay but could be better.

There is a lot to learn and you have to get out of your comfort zone.You have to build a clientele which means a lot of calls and meetings.The good thing is that you have plenty of help and team work.It's not easy but very rewarding if you put in the work and listen to management.
