    Pros

    This is a great place to really own your own territory. All of the tools and resources are provided for your success. As long as you can allocate these resources and pull in Engineers and other AE's when needed, you will be successful.

    Work/Life balance is excellent. As long as you give it 100%, you can leave by 5 PM every day.

    Cons

    There are about 3,000 products.
    Very hard to use certain internal systems.
    If you are not technical, you MUST understand business drivers or you will sink fast.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more one on one time with new hires.

    Pros

    Plenty of career opportunities and, for the most part, you're empowered to make your own decisions. Friendly environment to work in. The company encourages working from home for many positions.

    Cons

    Strong focus on cost-cutting which errs on the miserly. Sales positions can be exceptionally stressful. Distributed work force can lead to a feeling of disconnection from your peers and management.

    Pros

    Company is good, salary is competitive and they fight for their employees when they try to leave.

    Cons

    but is slow on making decision at production level, no sense of criticality.

    Advice to Management

    You need to be more energic with your engineers, way to soft.

    Pros

    Through the downturn in the economy had my best years in earnings. Ability to work in a flexible wfh and office environment. Opportunity to work with people with significantly different experiences to help me grow my skills. Ability to contribute across business lines like a small company while still working for a big company

    Cons

    takes a long time to remove bad managers, Finance/accounting has too much say/internal systems are challenging to work with and need to be improved to facilitate sales

    Advice to Management

    Value customer and contact relationships more then geographic lines, show your top performers in revenue you value them as much as the performers who out perform quota by the percentage over quota, improve marketing efforts to return our brand value
