Former Employee - Account Executive in Irvine, CA
Former Employee - Account Executive in Irvine, CA

I worked at Balboa Capital full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

good coffee
nice professional location/office
you get a wireless headset
diverse workplace
pretty girls
everyone leaves around 3-4 on fridays
casual friday
$2500 per month. 30k salary no room for negotiating

Cons

training is only 3 days long! they throw you into the sharks after that..it seems nothing else matters but your call numbers at the end of the day. Lots of stuck up and self entitled people. They're are currently going through some growing pains, so things can get a unorganized at times. Sales cycle is way too long! commission structure is an industry joke! this industry is saturated and cut throat

Advice to ManagementAdvice

train your people better! do up-training at lunch or something. Stop with all the favoritism! Their motto and style is they don't like to "baby sit" anyone, meaning they will let you slip through the cracks and fail if you don't absorb all the information they give you. There is plenty of help if and when you ask (beg) for it. Their atmosphere is not very competitive. Hire a real Sales Trainer! to help anyone who's struggling. MAKE A SALES SCRIPT TO FOLLOW!!

    I have been working at Balboa Capital full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great technology, fast paced, exciting, great location, classy work environment. At Balboa Capital, you get the corporate benefits of a large company and the entrepreneurial benefits of a small company. Managers lead by example.

    Cons

    No match on the 401K plan. Benefit provider has changed 3 times in the last 4 years. Makes it annoying to refill paperwork at the doctors office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more team members involved when creating a new product or rolling out a new policy, as there may be consequences that were not thought of once implemented.

    I have been working at Balboa Capital full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Work environment is relatively young. For the most part all managers are very kind/helpful. If you put in the time/hours you will see results. Long term career potential

    Cons

    Company is growing and needs to figure out a more long term location. Base salary never increases but, commission goes up relatively quickly. High turnover as well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the high turnover rate need to give more incentive for the better reps to stay. All in all great company
