    Pros

    Really progressive data company. Making huge strides in transforming global company culture. Sounds cliche, but the people are really great to work with.

    Cons

    Coming from a media background the pace of change is a little slower, but it is far more thoughtful and strategic.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the pedal down and keep playing the long game.

    Pros

    Helpful management team. Not working weekends. Fun work culture. Limitless ability to make commission. Great learning curve and base salary for a bad month

    Cons

    Lunch breaks are too short. Getting up at five every day to go to work is not fun either. Otherwise, great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Try to create a training program that is not 100% by the book. Every situation is different, and pretending like a sale is in a controlled environment does not help much when training employees to think on their feet when talking to customers.

    Pros

    Fun company with tons of incentives to earn extra money.

    Cons

    Turn and burn company. If you are not selling they will get you out of the company fast. The turnover is like non-other I have seen.

    Pros

    Good compensation and decent benefits. New performance management system in place is a good thing. Current leadership much better than what was there even a few years ago. Doing more of the right things.

    Cons

    Still a bit too many of the old guard in place. Product leadership at the top lacks long term vision.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the positive change. This is a good company and has come back from the brink but has a way to go.

    Pros

    You can make decent commission if you are ok screwing businesses over with a useless product. So they breakdown here is when you first start they make it seem like a professional company where you can grow and succeed. Shortly after once you hit the phones you will start seeing your coworkers quit in a split. The upper management is smart by hiring mostly people on their last straw in life to basically ensure they will do whatever it takes to earn money even if it is deceitful and damn right wrong. So they people you see with continued success tend to be people with high child support payments, felons, losers that in no other circumstance earn a living. Fair enough startup companies need a sales force capable of getting the job done. If you are a college graduate or someone with the ability to go elsewhere do yourself the favor and don't take this positio

    Cons

    Basically everything I said above is accurate. Left the company by my own free will. But really there is alternative ways to generate renevue than shady sales tactics.

    Advice to Management

    Look for alternative methods to develop a strong sales force that's based on marketing and developing a platform where companies can use your product with tangible results.
