    Pros

    Good front line sales management, great sales engineering resources, broad spectrum of products and services to sell. Good health benefits and very stable environment.

    Cons

    Layer and layers of process in terms of getting anything done. Simple tasks must be handled through multiple systems on top of SalesForce and multiple people. Not nimble at all...thorough but slow. Still trying to figure out how to market and sell Cloud and Data Center services 3 years after the Savvis acquisition. The comp plan is complicated with both incentives and penalties. Less than 40% of sales professionals hit their yearly number. You have to fight against mutliple sales teams and groups for account ownership as poaching seems to be encouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the comp plan. Streamline processes. Make account ownership absolute.

    Interview

    Got called to interview 3 different times for different openings. Took several weeks to hear back. Typical interview questions. All seemed to ask me why I would be best person for the job.
