    Great company with challenges in the Enterprise field

    Former Employee - Enterprise Sales  in  Austin, TX
    Former Employee - Enterprise Sales in Austin, TX

    Pros

    I was there 8 years with 5 being in sales and it was a firm I was always proud to represent. The resources are there to allow you to "do the right thing" if there are product related issues. Generally, mgmt is supportive of efforts that support the customer

    Cons

    Its a consumer products company that tries to dabble in enterprise sales. Not all the resources for deployment are there and there are many instances of a truing to fill a round hole with a square peg.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you wish to participate in enterprise deployments, provide the resources

    Pros

    Free Beer. Free transport to work. I even got free shoes. It's basically the perfect place to work.

    Cons

    There are always other engineer's trying to explain why they're so smart and why their part/project is super complicated and important. Most are just faking it; it feels like 5% of the people do 95% of the work. And the gym is always crowded.
