Pros

Opportunity for change, finally getting on board with current technology, open forums to voice your own opinion (at your risk though). Decent hours

Cons

Tunnel vision managers, bipolar managers, still have lots of legacy technology, favoritism, sometimes no chance to earn bonus. Employee awards seem to be given out arbitrarily.

    Pros

    Home based. Flexible hours. Good and helpful field reps.

    Cons

    HORRIBLE commision structure. Very low salary. Unrealistic yearly budgets. Zero help from inside sales. Have Business Develepment Specialists("Hunters"), who are non-exsistent. Poor and outdated technology. Average wait to talk to a CS person is 20 to 30 minutes. These are people in your own company. Poor follow-up from Product Specialists if there is a problem in the field. Car and fuel allowance woeful. Spend an average of 150.00 per month out of pocket for fuel purchase

    Advice to Management

    Stop short changing your sales staff. A 1 percent bonus as an incentive to make budget is laughable at best. Get with the 21st century technology wise. Increase company visability. Barnes supplies Nascar with nuts and bolts, why not use that as a selling feature?


  2. Challanging and rewarding, but very corporate in structure
