    I have been working at Barnes Group

    Pros

    Richardson Sales training was excellent. Home-office. Direct manager was supportive, as were field sales reps. Company was very big on using new technology to support role to gain new accounts. Subsidy given to get up-and-running -- you can focus on developing and learning the business without the home-finances distraction.

    Cons

    Personal:
    Due to IMI Market data the job was rescinded 5 months after being given the opportunity. Needless to say, I feel like I lost 1/2 of a year of my life. Two months after being hired I should have realized there was a problem when corporate took away expense and mileage reimbursement program to institute a flat reimbursement that didn't cover expenses, tolls, meals, etc.

    Systemic:
    Archaic ordering system, reps are on the phone with corporate for long periods of time. Reps - and CSS' especially - with larger territories are penalized with the flat vehicle/mileage allowance, which will result directly with less sales from reps not visiting accounts as frequently, or cold-calling on new accounts.

    Quota was unrealistic. The quota 5 yrs before was $60k for the 1st year - my quota was $150k for the 1st year in 2010 - what kind of inflation rate was this at? When I left there were 2 out of 87 reps at quota. WARNING: When you leave the job, you will be thinking you are lousy at sales, and it will make hiring elsewhere a harder sell - what were your numbers?!?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would have to agree that the move to a larger territory / larger opportunity focus is the right move to make with the new role of "Strategic Account Manager". Set realistic quotas. Try not to be penny-wise and pound-foolish regarding the expense reimbursement policy for the CSS'. Thank you for the training, I almost feel bad you didn't give yourself the chance to recoup your investment in me.
