Current Employee - Account Executive in Phoenix, AZ

I have been working at Belo

Pros

Sales training is the best in the market. Product is amazing and easy to sell. Compensation packages are very fair.

Cons

Very insulated environment, little to no interaction outside of ones department, no encouragement to network with ones peers. Positive feedback is consciously withheld.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue with your amazing training programs. But migrate from less of a factory and manufactured sales person. Allow for more flexibility for training sales skill, instead of applying a sales mold that ae's are expected to fit into

    You get what you pay for. If you try to cut costs on important items, it eventually comes back to bite you in the butt.
    Listen to those that use the equipment daily to know what does and doesnt work.
