    Pros

    The culture is the one thing Signpost really has going for them. They have hired a group of enthusiastic young adults that get to share in their success and team work. This could be completely false now though, few people last longer than a year there (just long enough that no one has shares that ever vest).

    The managers are great and try really hard to make the best out of a tough situation.

    Cons

    Everything else outside of the people around me. In my interview, I was told there was a direct path for vertical advancement, in your first year, you're likely to make over $35K, and that over 60% of the office makes sales quota (providing a whopping $1,000 commission check). Within a couple weeks into this new position, I realized both of these to be explicitly false. Management had been a long-term goal of mine in the office, but after seeing over 5 people overlooked for upper management, I realized my yearn for advancement would be just like basically everything else there, just a hope and dream.

    I also realized that if you can't make quota, you're basically not making a living. What is interesting to me is that I was struggling on their $20K base + commission, but if you are a new applicant to this position- say goodbye to the base, you're on 100% commission (so good luck eating dinner every night). Oh yeah, and for those who don't understand taxes, commission is considered a bonus and taxed heavily- typically between 25-42%.

    The training process is yet another downfall of this startup. Though the managers were great at teaching basic sales tactics and objection training, but you build a relationship with them upstairs, apart from the actual sales floor, gain comfort on the phones, and then as a reward to you “graduating” training, you’re thrown into a pit of basically strangers, with a manger who does not know your selling style or how to help, essentially putting you back to square one for a couple of weeks until your team warms up to you.

    Welcome to a glorified boiler room. Signpost may have a keg, snacks, and fun music on all day, but you’re a work horse living on scraps. Signpost is trying to make a name for themselves in an extremely saturated market, their product has far to go in order to become a key player in their industry. For those with ANY sales experience, your talent is best put elsewhere. If you're right out of college with no work experience, this may be a job for you, but you'll probably make more money as a server.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest paid overtime, but you don't even want to pay your employees at all anymore. So, I would say to reconsider the training program to be more cohesive in building long term relationships with your managers and coworkers from the start.
