Culture and Values
This firm is not client centered. They manipulate the reps to give packaged products to clients, they push for production, they have the lowest paid ancillary staff, so in turn reps have to chip in to get the assigned assistants to do their job, They look to place handcuffs on your awards so that you can never leave without paying a price.

Pros and Cons
