Pros

Excellent Support outside of your department, Fantastic Perks, Solid Benefits, Great Networking Experience, Free Food from the vendors is always a plus. Training is superb, no micro managers

Cons

Salary is horrible, Commission is half of what others are paying, Not an Open Door policy even if they say it is, Great culture when I started but spiraling downhill since it went private.

Advice to Management

Bring the culture back

    Pros

    the vendors are great as they offer a lot of perks and trips you can win by selling their product
    lots of happy hours from lots of vendors
    some of the people that work there are awesome

    Cons

    The pay is subpar. 25K base for sales is HARD to live on
    In order to meet the expectations the recruiters set you will need to work more than 50+ hours a week
    Its a bully of a company

    Advice to Management

    Care about the employees instead of the bottom line.


  2. Inside Sales with room to make money if you can find the business!

    Pros

    Chicago Location next to union station is central for commuters, running errands, and working out.
    Inside sales means less travelling out of state.
    Potential to make mega cash does exist if you're good at playing the corporate game.
    Youthful, fun sales atmosphere.

    Cons

    Sales goals in some segments can be over-inflated....and if you don't hit goal, you risk not getting paid your commission at all.
    Commission structure can be confusing to understand in certain segments, even the commission analyst had difficulty explaining it firsthand.

    Advice to Management

    Fix commission structure so that it's easy to explain, and understand. This may not apply to all segments, but it does to some.
