    Pros

    Excellent work life balance, opportunity for growth and great management at all levels.

    Cons

    Limited cons...only thing I could say is they were in a transition phase when i left and jumped around with their product offerings.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the training and educational training you offer the sales teams. Top notch in the that department all the way.

    Pros

    Culture, the people, work/life balance

    Cons

    Constant changing of comp plan, some managers can ruin it for you by micromanaging, not enough flexibility to work from home, and too much change at the same time. Slow down a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down all the rapid change. Employees cant keep up with these changing all the time and lack of transparency in how to bring these changes to market.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, great pay, AMAZING benefits. I honestly enjoy coming to work every single day. Travel options are great as well. You truly run your own business here. I have a GREAT manager and great director.

    Cons

    Some management can micro manage like crazy. Make sure you talk to reps on the team if interviewing to find out what manager style you would like best. Your experience really will be based upon your leadership.

    Advice to Management

    SA's need to communicate better to reps. Lots a change which is great, but not everyone is kept in the loop with process.

    Pros

    balanced work-life. Fast paced and exposed to new technologies.

    Cons

    Lots of applications and work can be siloed out.

    Keep doing a great job. A more frequent update of what the company is doing as a whole.

    Pros

    Great benefits (probably best in business) Great people to work with and the office atmosphere is awesome. Made some great friends. Compensation is good if you are selling. Not much of a ramp up time and training is semi par.

    Cons

    Very competitive industry
    Many large and small players
    Things have changed tremendously in the last 5 years
    If you can't roll with the punches you should never work for this company or do this job.

    Cons

    A lot of you view will be colored by which manager you get. Some are great others....not so much

    Listen to the employees more often and stop moving people to new teams at random it seems

    Pros

    Great culture - work life balance is important to everyone in the organization. The management actually believes in the corporate values. The benefits are phenomenal.

    Cons

    Salary is on the lower end of the market. Sometimes all of the outings and activities cut into the efficiency of the teams.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Transparency is vital to a healthy organization and you're doing it right.
