    Pros

    Freedom to work in the way that works for you. Remote work environment. Great sales team.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of a start-up, the environment at Plum District was constantly changing. The products that were sold, the expectations even the commission rates changed on pretty much a monthly basis.

    Advice to Management

    Being more connected from top down would help to make life not so uncertain for everyone working "boots on the ground".

    Pros

    As a sales rep, you gain experience in all aspects of the sales cycle and territory management: - prospecting - cold calling - business & market plan development - territory development - marketing events - working with business owners to craft a daily deal that works for their ROI - telecommuting - CRM It was exciting to be part of something new and growing.

    Cons

    It felt more like an internship than a real position as a full-time sales rep. There was little to no support for sales reps, and constant changing of the company mission. It was difficult to adhere to corporate strategies, as they were ever-changing. There was also minimal training, so unless you are a self-starter and motivator, you have no chance of succeeding or making money.
