    Pros

    Medical and Dental benefits are pretty good. Good mangers can make your job.

    Cons

    If you are not in sales, ask for a higher salary when you apply because raises/bonuses are few and far between. May be true for sales as well. Bad managers can break your job.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees for their contributions when we go above and beyond. Micro-managing is almost never helpful.

    Pros

    Great company with plenty of benefits. Work stops at 5. Not very stressful. The office here sucks.

    Cons

    They don't care about you at all. No negotiation, no wiggle room, you are just a small cog in a huge machine. Might get stuck with a terrible manager like I did. Pay is only average.

    Get opportunity to get your start in software sales. They have a diverse protfolio of software products and provide sale product training with actual developers and sales managers leading with the latest product release.

    Cons

    CRM software used in house is difficult to navigate and significantly impacts your productitivity with the sale cycle. Cross selling and up selling in nearly impossible.

    Pros

    It was a tremendous opportunity to learn. I worked with smart, personable people and had great managers. Felt that I belonged. Many options to change jobs within the company.

    Cons

    Pay does not change even with a promotion. When there is a market downturn, the workload increases to a breaking point.
