    Pros

    Great Technology and always working to keep on the bleeding edge of technology, great ability to catch up.
    Excellent health, dental and vision plans.
    Exciting aggressive sales focus provides a buzz to working here.
    Very results focussed

    Cons

    Small pay rises after joining.
    Strict policies make career progression hard, especially hard to leave sales for a different role such as product management or support because no alteration of package is done and so you lose out on commission.
    Only as good as your last quarter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Greater flexibility in policies
    Think before you act, particularly around compensation
