    Inside sales can be lucrative but is wearing

    Account Manager (Former Employee)
    Merrimack, NH

    ProsPC Connection provides a lot of product training and access to tons of information for its inside sales reps. If you are outgoing, you might enjoy working there. They have a good benefits package and often provide free food. It's basically a commodity sell, so you need to build relationships with buyers who value your responsiveness. You need to put a lot of hours into the job during your first year, to research your leads before you call them. Once you build your "book of business," you can do a lot of repeat selling and make good money.

    ConsThe sales force is housed in a very large room subdivided by cubicles. For me, it was too noisy. My sales manager (who is still there) forced me to relinquish my first steady buyer, even though I'd earned the account and followed all the rules, just to satisfy some political deal with another sales manager. I was given another account that didn't plan to buy anything. After that, I totally lost my motivation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should follow the rules of engagement.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    JOB SECURITY BUT FALSE PROMISES!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsExcellent work/life balance, flexible on remote work, job security (as long as you do it), and fun people to work with.

    ConsRaises are absolutely terrible (they're less than cost of living increases), you don't get rewarded or compensated for your work (others take credit for it), and they promise you the world on opportunities/promotions and they don't deliver.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake time to get to know each employee. This way you can find out who the real top earners/producers are. Learn to promote based on accomplishments and not who your favorite person is. These are the people that give you their loyalty.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Average at best

    Account Manager (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsStrong support staff to get things done efficiently, decent benefits and a well established company that has been around forever and likely not going to go out of business during the hard times. Good overall vendor relationships, which makes things easier in terms of securing better pricing, etc.

    ConsPoor middle management, company is too focused on monitoring and controlling your every action, than on selling. Lower than average compensation, you are taxed heavily on anything you could possibly earn. Too much focus on monitoring and controlling your every action rather than simply focused on selling. Company takes a percentage of everything from you that you don't even see

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on sales, not "good activity"

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
