    Flailing a bit right now, but great people to work with....

    ITS Client Executive (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsYou will be hard-pressed to find a more dedicated and smart group of peers to work with. You'll work alongside some of the best and brightest.

    ConsThe leadership can be disappointing at times... more interested in their own careers than doing what's right by the business or our clients. The benefits are not nearly as good as they used to be, and the compensation for quota employees is "managed" to make sure that no one is bringing home piles of money. If you're on track to blow out your number, don't be surprised by a quota increase.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPractice what Ginni preaches... work for the success of our clients and the company and your own success will follow.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    - Travel keeps you away from home
    - Work with B-class employees
    - You'll never work with the same colleagues again, or meet your manager

    Advice to Senior Management- Scratch every HR effort and start over.
    - Offer more competitive pay
    - Make it so that you actually meet the people responsible for your development/raises
    - Listen more to what employees want
