Not ready to have a sales force in my opinion

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsGreat company platform knowing that you are helping seniors and their families in what is often a stressful and difficult time.

ConsSerious lack of support from upper management for an outside sales position. The company is still figuring out how they should position themselves to professionals. The messaging from management is inconsistent and ever changing. For an outside sales position, I've never experienced an expense reimbursement process as frustrating as this one. Never mind, no company car or car allowance... ok, that's fine. Mileage is reimbursed at the federal rate but good luck getting that reimbursement in a timely fashion. You are only allowed to submit one expense report a month, for the prior month, and from the time you submit that report it takes at least two weeks to receive that reimbursement if you are lucky. Marketing materials are hard to come by and some of them you are expected to make and distribute on your own which is challenging considering the monthly allowance for marketing.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are going to hire a sales force make sure you are prepared to support that sales force monetarily and provide consistent messaging to the field. I understand you are still "figuring" this position out but don't blame lack of performance on the employee if you can't provide the necessary resources.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
