    I worked at AppAssure Software

    Pros

    I left AppAssure last month due to family's relocation to west coast. I can not find a job anywhere that is as fast paced, fun with the ability to get ahead. I was promoted after 7 months to Sales Manager. I worked my butt offf...but it payed off. AppAssure is NOT for the weak or someone that enjoyes sitting quitely in a cube making 10 calls a day. I made 200 calls a day and always crushed my numbers! You get out of the job what you put into it. Warning - this is not a place for slow moving, low energy people. I wish AppAssure had an office on trhe west coast!

    Cons

    The working hours are 8:00 - 5:30 - but you really need to come in early and stay late to hit your numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push out the low energy slugs. They bring everyone down. Keep the energy and fun pumping!

    I worked at AppAssure Software

    Pros

    Pros are only for tech, not sales:

    Excellent social value - I really loved the people I worked with.

    The salary/bonuses are awesome if you're on the right side. For example, people will get more money even if they just started later than you; it's supposed to be a secret, but everyone knows how much everyone else makes.

    Cons

    I wouldn't recommend joining sales. The turnover rate is ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I genuinely liked my managers. However, the sales managers had a less than glowing reputation.

    I have been working at AppAssure Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have been bought out by Dell, so the benefits upgrade was huge. Having Dell on your resume is gold. Initial training was great, put you right into the "ecosystem". For people coming out of college this is a great opportunity to build life long skills that other employers will be looking for. However, if you stay there just long enough, you may never want to leave. Average person there for 3+ years is six figures.

    Cons

    You will work longer hours. Your hair may turn grey.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start at a higher salary base.

    Pros

    People you work with there are great. Atmosphere is cool & energetic.

    Cons

    Cold calling sucks but its what you sign up for. But that doesn't take away from the fact that it sucks.

    quota or out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be aware of the average BDR. They work hard and need feedback about how they are doing.

    Pros

    Fun environment, excellent opportunity to make your job what you put into it. Job allows for the advancement of knowledge of technology.

    Cons

    Loud environment and constant turnover within the sales team. This turnover is directly attributed to not reaching goals or moving on to a new company and not related to management. These are entry level positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am appreciative of the job that I have been given, and that I can choose to make the most of my job, just by showing initiative and desire. This is the exact type of environment I need to thrive.

    I worked at AppAssure Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity for entry level sales people. Terrific training to begin a career in sales. Office atmosphere is full of energy and excitement. The days pass by quickly.

    Cons

    Employees don't aspire to take on a managerial role because communication of all the changes from the Dell acquisition are not made in a timely manner. Quota's are unattainable for managers. Pay plans change on a regular basis and are presented as if they are too the employees advantage when in fact they limit your ability to make money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate all the changes taking place much sooner. There is a general feeling in the office of being disorganized. Announce changes to quota and pay plans much earlier in the month. Create an atmosphere where people aren't timid to provide their true feelings on changes taking place in fear of losing their job.
