Pros

You can make a ton of money.

Cons

It is very hard, the name is poor in marketplace and internal policies make it hard to get anything done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Become better communicators. You never hear from SR. managers down on their strategy and what they are doing to drive the business.

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Solid money
    Good technology
    Ability to acquire competitive technologies.

    Cons

    Four hours a week dedicated to reporting numbers to management.
    Inconsistent messaging on expectations.
    Bullying.
    Little management insight on how to sell.
    Matrix organization with lots of competing interests.
    Very little customer empathy.
    It's all about the bottom line with little direction as to how to get there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sales executives rule through intimidation and are not skilled in helping their employees sell more. An inordinate amount of time is spent on reporting numbers for the benefit of the top sales managers with little time spent going over accounts and how to accomplish goals. Part of the issue is there is little trust on the sales reporting tools which are misaligned with corporate reporting requirements so there is a lot of filtering that occurs between the reporting tool (Salesforce) and the numbers which salespeople announce twice a week at a minimum.
