Sales Manager

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsRecruiters are polite, thorough, very organized. Schedule phone screenings and any additional phone interviews as needed. You are given sufficient time to ask and/or email all questions and I found HR to be quite helpful in the early stages. It is a lengthy process , however they are clear about this upfront.

ConsMid Managers are not impressive. Don't like to be questioned or challeneged. For the most part , the are not "experts" in their fields and designated markets. I was actually surprised as to how little experience middle to upper management had in certain departments, given the amount of interviewing and screening required before one is even made an offer to join a team. That said, certain areas are definitely better places to work than others. Not a fan of the sales leadership/division and do not recommend working there.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you expect the best from people you hire, you should in turn provide the best management and leadership possible. Lead by example.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
