      Pros

      If you are able to perform, the remuneration is excellent.

      Cons

      However, if you are unable to perform, Great Eastern will claw back the incentives that was given to you. No repayment plans will be offered for the owed incentives. A large amount of money will be required to be paid back within a short timeframe (1 month) with a threat of police report if you are unable to do so.
