    Pros

    One of the best things about Acquirent is the liberating sales environment. There is a lot of opportunity to be yourself and carry your own responsibilities without having someone peeking over your shoulder or asking for sales pipeline updates everyday. You really do have an enormous opportunity to learn about how sales' cycles work and gain enormous amounts of knowledge. The culture is strongly built upon having a good attitude and putting in effort, which WON'T go unnoticed. Employees can get to know the partners on a personal basis and have one-on-one time with them. The amount of transparency that company offers, in terms of how it makes money and what its strategic plans are, is very unique. There is a TON of opportunity in this industry as well and Acquirent shows it has the right type of leadership to capitalize on that opportunity. Acquirent does truly care about its people, there is little no zero office politics here.

    Cons

    Acquirent has a difficult time forecasting Sales reps' commission potential especially with new clients; I have seen several people leave the organization because real commissions fell well short of what was forecasted for them. There also needs to be more opportunity for professional advancement within the organization itself. The company struggles with finding the most assertive and skilled professionals but struggles to keep the talent it does find anyway because that talent can make more money elsewhere OR sees no opportunity for internal advancement. The company also needs to be more structured with its performance reviews so that employees can see how they've advanced beyond their sales. There is also nothing formalize for earning a base raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More balance performance reviews and employee recognition; right now only the employees who are on accounts with transnational-sales are recognized. More mobility between employees and accounts. Figure out a way to offer career opportunity and income potential to the employees have shown the attitude, competence, and dedication that Acquirent craves.
