    In this position, you get to work with great customers and really set up a network of professional people that you can continually build on throughout your career.

    Listen to the worker bees, they are the ones who interact with the customers on a daily basis and know what they need and want to continue a successful business partnership.

    Current Employee - Account Manager  in  Detroit, MI
    Current Employee - Account Manager in Detroit, MI

    Pros

    You get a company car that you can drive anywhere in the US and the pay for the gas. The bonuses are pretty good if you hit them, and they usually aren't too difficult to hit if you plan for them. Its good to be out and on your own doing things without a manger breathing down your neck.

    Cons

    Too many pointless meetings that lasted way too long. The management will simply push goals down your throat even if they aren't achievable. The demands only increase as your time with the company increases. What the ultimately want you to do is not in the customers best interest, but in Coke's best interest only. They don't understand what it is like to sell some of the stuff, they simply think everyone wants what they have cause they are Coke. Politics, but I guess this is everywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Big CEOs need to come down and do sales for a week. Pretend you are a trainee and see what the sales people put up with it. The starting salary should be at least 40k-45k as well, the employees are way underpaid for all the hard work they put into things.
