    Current Employee - Sales Executive in Tyson's Corner, Fairfax, VA

    I have been working at Centric full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Centric will test you to your limits. This is a wonderful thing. The saying: "Anything worth having is worth working for" really applies here. You work your hardest and you will get what you work for. I love it here and love the people that I work with.

    Cons

    Push yourself. The only con is if you cannot handle the work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay open, let people talk to you. You all are really good at that, please do not lose it.

    I have been working at Centric

    Pros

    Centric really is a good company. Very competitive and highly rated in the market for our industry. Sound company structure. Great people. High standards set and followed. top-notch professional sales opportunity. Company is growing like crazy. good training and continuous training

    Cons

    Growth is great, but there is sometimes a break in communication when there is so much growth. As a sales rep as long as I stay on top of everything its fine. You work really long hours, but you get to plan your schedule

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage reps to work hard but also enjoy a work-life balance. Management works hard and they expect everyone else to do the same. Encourage a balance.

    I have been working at Centric full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You learn a lot about sales and being a professional. Commission is OK and you learn a tremendous amounts about technology as well. You are micromanaged, but it will prepare to be successful in your next job.

    Cons

    Base pay at the time was a base justification around 35k. Not enough to survive in the DC area.
    Not much room for advancement. The hours are ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of base justification.

    Pros

    Great company, competitive starting salary/ commission, good benefits, great training program, great sustomer satisfaction/ high customer retention (well over 90%)

    Long hours, hard work, pretty high expectations set by the company. It can be hard to get rolling but once you get in the groove (if you are able to) it really pays off

    I have been working at Centric

    Pros

    Ability to make a significant amount of commission after six months. First 4 months are extremely tough and you must be able to deal with failure.

    Cons

    Extremely humbling while out calling on companies and on the phone calls. Zero downtime and not a realistic schedule. Expected to take lunch in the car.

    I have been working at Centric

    Pros

    Great People to work with, with an agressive sales model. Company has great products and service. Fun environment to work in.

    Cons

    The Base justification, which means you pay your own salary, it's a draw. High turnover due to poor pay structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the Base Justification. Your company spends so much money consistantly hiring and training new staff, when if the base justification was removed people would stay longer with the company.
