Misdirection from management, poor business decisions, and mistrust of HR run rampant.

I have been working at Altium Limited for more than a year

Pros

Cool products. EDA Software with support for FPGA. Unified product allows for one software platform running many Electronic Design applications. Free lunch. Good co-workers.

Cons

Too much politics. Continual changes in direction make it difficult to accomplish job satisfaction. Steep learning curve unless you have worked with EDA tools in the past.

    Fun work environment. Free lunch! But very lousy commission structure...

    I worked at Altium Limited

    Pros

    I worked with some pretty cool people who were very encouraging when it came to closing deals. They were very helpful in learning the product and good ways of selling it. When lunch time came around, you could hear a bell ring and everyone would sort of bum-rush the kitchen for free lunch; usually pretty good food though often somewhat unhealthy. The office was located far enough away from places to eat to where this was a bit obligatory.

    Cons

    Commission. This is a sales job and you're not here to make $15-16/hr and be content staring at purchase orders for 10s of thousands of dollars expecting a commission of... 0.5% Free lunch is great and all but not to the tune of sacrificing tons of commission potential. To be fair, I worked here back in 2010 so hopefully things have changes a bit in this area.

    Unhappy employees and a complete LACK of management talent

    I have been working at Altium Limited

    Pros

    the free food and my coworkers

    Cons

    I agree with everything the other poster has said. The USA location of Altium has a complete lack of management talent. A salesperson is not given any of the tools they need to achieve. Most employees are very unhappy and the USA location has to bring in consultants just to figure out how to "improve their culture". Simply put, this place is a mess, you don't want to work here in a sales capacity. Look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Lead by example (don't be complete hypocrites)
    - Have some respect for your employees. Treat them as people whom have families with responsibilities outside the workplace
    - Learn how to actually budget your accounts in order to make your goals for your sales reps attainable
    - Give concrete specific assistance on how to improve in the job rather than vague political terms
