    I have been working at Websense full-time (less than a year)


    The number one thing that lead me to accepting my job offer with Websense was the promise of being able to grow your career here. Knowing that this wasn't just an empty promise (as I've already recieved one promotion in my year of working here) confirms that I made the best decision. Another huge thing is that managers are here to help you grow your career. They provide appropriate feedback, both positive and negative, that will help you take your career to the next step. The managers are definitely here to help you make sure you're taking the right steps with clients and helping you meet quota. Coming onto the sales team also entailed a full three month training course that went over not just sales traning and tactis, but also full understanding of the solutions and best practices to help you succeed once you hit the floor. The people that work here are typically fairly young and easy to get along with; co-workers can easiy become friends here. Obviously, another huge plus is the pay. The base salary is comparable to other sales jobs and the commission structure makes it possible to actually get paid your full commission plus some extra.


    As with any sales job, end of the month/quarter tends to get stressful (especially if you haven't met quota).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue helping your employees grow and meet their monthly/quarterly/career goals.
