    Pros

    Pay is really good, especially if you're starting your career in sales here as a recent grad or career changer
    There really is a path to success and promotions.
    Best in class training. They literally have an Academy now where you are shown each aspect of the job, from using the systems, to getting your metrics in line all the way down to helping you deal with stress.
    You get to work with some of the biggest tech companies in the game. These aren't mom and pop shops or start ups. They're household names.
    Great location with great benefits.
    The people around you are awesome, I've developed lasting friendships here.
    Through the ups and downs, they will work with you.
    Huge door opener. The experience you gain here is invaluable.
    You ask for help, you get it.
    Office tech and working environment is nice and up to date.

    Cons

    Some of the things said in the reviews don't come without some truth. But reviews are seldom written by anyone other than disgruntled employees.
    It's sales, there's tons of ups and downs.
    It's easy to get inside your own head, sometimes you become your own worst enemy.
    There's always change happening, you can't get comfortable here.
    You're in a cube all day long, aside from allotted and much needed breaks.
    High pressure job, I liked comparing it to the Wolf of Wall street call center.

    Advice to Management

    Sit your middle of the pack, tenured employees down and ask them, "When was the last time you bonused?".
    They are the backbone of your company, folks who come in day in and day out and do what they are capable of doing.
