    Keep on doing what you're doing, continue to involve employees.

    Pros

    Great training regime
    Dedicated managers/directors who work hands on with new hires
    Good bonus plan
    Exposes you to numerous types of tech sales and helps you build a great network within the industry very quickly

    Cons

    Fixation on call numbers/conversations can lead to burn out
    Constant changing of projects and goals can be frustrating

    Advice to Management

    Deliver more realistic expectations to clients to ensure goals are not inflated and then fall on reps to cover.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, management is always accessible, work-life balance is easily achieved, good benefits and ability to reach goals, good perks for doing well, flexibility with time off for personal things (holidays, appointments, emergencies, etc.), good place to come to from college, being independent is achievable if you are a hard worker, ability to take on extra opportunities such as social media, training, etc.

    Cons

    It sometimes takes awhile for communication to make it to everyone in the office, career advancement is difficult and not always laid out due to the nature of working at a small company, some benefits could improve with company growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep coming up with ways to make BDRs enjoy their time (paying tuition is amazing) and try to communicate ideas and company direction often... it's nice to know what's going in and hearing it directly from management.

    Pros

    Awesome co-workers, excellent management, clearly defined advancement program.

    Cons

    Cold-calling, 8:30 to 5:30, without commission, the base salary isn't enough.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    You will learn more about the technology sales process in your first 3 months than you will in 1 year anywhere else. The nature of the business grants you exposure to multiple companies, technologies and their respective target markets which makes you extremely appealing to all future employers.

    Plenty of room to move up if you're willing to do more than just go through the motions.

    The salary and compensation plan are similar to other companies who hire with <1 year experience.

    Senior management and ownership are well versed in business development trends and best practices and they invest in technologies that help you to be successful.

    Cons

    There is a lack of 1 on 1 coaching outside of the first 3-6 months of prospecting. Once you're trained and ramped it's on you to keep getting better and stay sharp.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring employee referrals.

    Pros

    Great laid-back atmosphere, great company to gain experience in sales and business development, fantastic superiors. Very fun to go to work!

    Cons

    No upwards mobility to speak of, commission promised during interview is unrealistic to achieve, degree of difficulty of work is dependent on project placed on, barely a step up from absolute cold-calling.

    Pros

    Great culture, training program, support and experience. The people here are amazing and portray a family like atmosphere in the sense that you all work together and have great support. Everyone is there to help you succeed. You will learn everything you need to learn about starting your career in inside sales and then some. If you choose to move beyond this company you will leave with close friends and so much knowledge that will prepare you for your next step.

    Cons

    Cold calling can be redundant. Can be stressful as it is a "sales" job. AG does their best to treat their comp plan as fair as possible but it's virtually impossible to please everyone and make it so the competition is 100% fair. Be prepared to work hard and be competing at times, with very competitive individuals.

    Advice to Management

    I worked with just about every person on the management team and everyone was/is very supportive and always had their door open for me. My advice is to just keep that up and make sure they are expressing this openness to all their employees and to listen to all opinions as some projects and situations can be very frustrating.

    Pros

    Work hard, Play hard.

    Fair with time off. Very flexible with emergencies, and last minute vacation requests.

    Fun place to work, with very nice people

    Cons

    Pay is not comparable to similar jobs in Boston area for inside sales/tele-prospecting reps.

    Commission is non-existent

    Women shoot up the ladder faster than men

    Advice to Management

    Not every project is the same. Dont treat every project as apples to apples.

    Pay your people a little more.

    Get a better comp plan that everyone can understand.
