    I have been working at Zones full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, weekends and most holidays off, good stepping stone to a real technology company. There is only one way up from here!!!

    Cons

    The structure of the company is to steal money from employees by way of a ridiculous commission payout as well as missing spiffs for every product that is sold. The worst compensated in the channel. There is no honesty with the real cost associated with products versus what we are told our cost is. Various reps of the manufacturers have confirmed this inadvertently through conversations about Zones compensation for bringing the opportunity to the table. "The Leads Are Weak?" via Glenn Gary Glenn Ross....... In this case, they in fact are. The only way to get good leads are to search and add the companies yourself or stick around long enough to get "transition" accounts passed to you. Zones hasn't purchased new leads since 2004 per a former employee that worked in customer management. The "real" leads and transition accounts are farmed from the books of former Account Executives that put in the time to sift through the BS leads and develop some sort of relationship until it got shattered by one of the various moving parts in the sales process. Every department from Software Licensing, "Expert" Connect a.k.a. failed AE's, purchasing...... etc. will mess your business up and in most cases, irreparably. Shipping cost don't add up. Distribution says "free" and Zones says "fee". Nobody knows who you are. Lack of marketing immediately puts you in the sleazy salesmen/telemarketer category when cold calling which is 30% of your day. The other 70% is damage control and tracking down your missing commissions and spiffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be real with yourself and the employees. Make the base wage competitive and invest in some advertisement and quality leads for the AE's. There is no reason we should call into leads that have had disconnected number since the early 2000's. This would be a positive step in getting the turnover rate lower. Every 3 months this place turns into a ghost town and the cycle starts over with a fresh batch of college grads with hopes and aspirations of landing that huge account.
