    Pros

    Great Pay-Best I've seen commission wise for sales its 70/30 Car Mileage 55 cents a mile Corporate Expense account-Typically $1,000k a month is what management is ok with- could be more if your really closing deals Channel/Business partner model for leads and opportunity's

    Cons

    A lot of micromanagement you live inside sales force.com- management is always asking for updates constantly A lot of channel conflict- business partners fighting over existing accounts and not hunting for net new Hard to get resources for escalations because the company is so big no one knows where to go for help Not every company is familiar with Avaya- Cisco kills us on marketing and you would think it would be easy to get meetings as a manufacturer not necessarily Companies don't have money to keep upgrading their phone equipment, accounts dry up so you are always looking for new deals/opportunities I have a $1.3 million dollar quota and it just kept on getting bigger every year

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging and let us stay in the field instead of always having to update Salesforce.com. Get more engineers to sales people the ratio is 1 to 7 in the Chicago market
