    The HMO of Sales -- you're not a person, you're a number

    Local Account Executive (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsGreat benefits (event tickets, contests, discounts, free cable)
    Local office, Fortune 50 company
    Decent training for new reps
    Sales Assistants are great
    Good office comaraderie (not much lead stealing)

    ConsUnfair to commissioned sales reps--the more you succeed, the more you are punished with lower commission and higher quota.
    Keeps the hard-working rep's commission when a client pays late. Yep, the company keeps the rep's commission for themselves!
    Complaints about lack of selling time go dismissed. Honestly, so much data entry to enable them to fire you whenever while maintaining account records eats up 70% of the work time.
    HR is not there for employees, it's there for management and it is filled with lack of support and lack of personalization.
    LOTS of micro-managing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHiring young, inexperienced sales reps will only take you so far. At this point, your reputation for undervaluing and underappreciating seasoned reps is preceeding you (as shown by many of the reviews here) and will continue to keep turnover rolling every 2 years and Spotlight's value low to the most talented reps. You will lose from doing this. It may take time, but you will lose market share, subscribers and top talent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
