    Very challenging environment for sales professionals

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVery nice and highly competent people working on the ground
    Often well-regarded by former students
    Relatively good salary and benefits

    ConsVery insular - only ever recruit from main competitor. Very much a jobs for the boys and them and us environment
    No control over data and no sales leads
    Are operating in a very mature market (accountancy tuition) and expect instant success in new markets
    Constantly push to get more and more from staff without ever considering whether the new goals being set are realistic
    No regard for keeping hold of talented people. Appalling rate of retention in Management roles
    Management styles range from uninterested to appalling command and control
    Corporate goals are not communicated. No sign of leadership
    No respect for the skills that sales people bring to the table. Seem to prefer to recruit accountants with zero sales experience and ask them to sell
    Often talk about having a 'solutions sales' approach but performance is managed by product and most sales people are product focused. Very unsophisticated in how they approach business to business relationships

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication is key
    Stop recruiting from one source
    Understand the importance of retaining talented staff
    Start to offer an effective management and leadership development programme
    Understand that accountants are not always the best people for a job

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
