    Pros

    The atmosphere is young and you can make a lot of friends. You run your own desk with your assigned territory, however if you do not make the effort there will be no reward.

    Cons

    The compensation (percentage of sales) is pretty low, but it is clear that within the company there are the "Big Hitters" who started 8+ years ago and basically just rake in the dough while not even being very technical. There are quite a few frat boys and as of more recently sorority girls there. Once you turn 30 you will want out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is a hit or miss here. Every team has a different manager some are better than others and you will learn very quickly if you like your manager or not. At this point I am glad that I did work there, but also knew when it was time to leave.

    Pros

    Awesome management, open door policies throughout
    Management & support staff will literally do everything they can to help you succeed
    Young coworkers, tons of room for growth

    Cons

    It takes a few years for the $$ to really be worth the work (pay is awful now, but really ramps up with hard-work, time, and a bit of luck).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All of the managers are really good. They're young people that were successful in the account manager role so they understand what support we need.
