    Pros

    No titles so everyone is accessible. Everyone has the same 4 feet of desk space, 2--4-6 monitors, 3 drawers all in an open environment. You could be sitting next to a Pulitzer prize winning recipient, a genius and an average joe. The pantries are awesome, office ambiance is great. Lots of internal opportunities.

    Cons

    some non technical depts can develop silos. Can be big brotherish.

    Pros

    Fantastic learning opportunities/extensive training. You'll meet a lot of great people.

    Cons

    You won't make a lot of money, even when you bring in revenue. There's an arrogance from the top, that the lowly sales person doesn't make it happen that the brilliant product sells itself and you're fortunate to be there, so they judge you on petty metrics that don't translate to revenue.

    There's an enormous lack of trust, you're treated like a child. Big brother looms. It's reminiscent of 1984.

    Advice to Management

    Measure sales people success on sales, give people a sense of ownership and motivation, not a pat on the back and some silly award. Stop micromanaging people and have a little faith in the people that you hire.
