If you like being told exactly what and how to do things vs. thinking for yourself and getting the business than this is the place for you. Had a great sales force with eager, veteran, mature, successful reps but their lack of trust lead to mandated business plans, strategies, and unrealistic metrics.

The most enjoyable part of my job was the camaraderie, mutual respect, and shared learning among my field rep district team. - less
