    Pros

    Autonomous position with flexibility to make your own schedule. Great managers, supportive customer service and co-workers are great. Ability to manage your territory as it was your own business.

    Cons

    Depending on your sales role, objectives may be unrealistic.Feel like the are constantly changing comp plans to keep you in a certain earning range. Some products are not great, so its hard to sell something you don't believe in. Not a lot of room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Try to create more roles for seasoned sales reps that are looking for career advancement.

    Pros

    Fun and relatively casual work environment. Managers will go out of their way to make sure you have the tools and knowledge to perform your job adequately. Provides perfect opportunity to get foot in the door with online marketing industry.

    Cons

    Job can be very demanding with the amount of incoming accounts. There is a lot of disconnect between information provided to clients between sales and the search department. Overall work processes could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue and look for further ways to remain transparent regarding the financial state of the company and overall job security.

    Pros

    Decent product, good company name, good salary ($38,000+$9,000 expense = $47,000), freedom of schedule, Salesforce

    Cons

    High pressure on sales, some clients had bad experience with previous company, company needs to fix some products/delivery to satisfy clients

    Advice to Management

    Fix the problems with websites and products so sales reps can have more time selling rather than fixing issues that shouldn't be a problem

    Advice to Management

    If someone gives 10+ years to your company - give them a break and don't hold them to the same standards of someone who has been there 1 month.

    Pros

    Great bonus programs. Worked with a lot of good people. Hit your quotas and you will have a lot of freedom. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Times have changed. Revenues generated by print are diminishing rapidly. Revenues from digital are harder to obtain due to increased competition. Back end support for digital is lacking especially website servicing.

    Pros

    I liked the autonomy and having each day different. You get to meet lots of people some are nice and open to hearing what you have to offer others are rude. Lots of rejection but that's sales and you just need to move on to the next door. If you are not motivated and are hurt by rejection this is not a job for you. You can make good money if you are a good at connecting with people and follow up.

    Cons

    You are constantly compared to others in your office. So if your co-workers are not doing as well then it makes you look good. Lots of turnover in this job as many people just want to get paid to sit at a desk and wait for the phone to ring. If you are not selling and closing new business on a regular basis then they will show you the door.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the management was inspiring and others were not. Spend more time assisting new hires to get prepared and encourage more communal goals where everyone wins.

    Pros

    You were given the freedom to create your own schedule and work virtually from your home with Little to no micromanaging.

    Cons

    The only obstacle that continued to present itself was the lack of owning quarterly objectives for new products. Quota would be met by a rep however if the product was a fail and discontinued the rep wasn't able to count those sales toward the quarter.
