    Pros

    True sales culture. Some great leaders, amazing Kick-off and Presidents club trips. Moving toward a data solutions company and has some exciting new products.

    Cons

    Executive leadership doesn't get "good" information. Management feeds them what they want to hear. Often times it seems that selling to customers takes a back seat to the internal red tape that exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a solution to stop turnover of senior reps.

    Pros

    CareerBuilder does a phenomenal job of building a great culture with excellent energy. Their annual kick off event includes some of the best speakers in the world. They provide employees with much more than just a job. On top of that, Executive leadership is extremely strong and they set a good example for employees to follow.

    Cons

    One of the biggest grumbles that you hear from current and former employees pertains to the compensation plan. The base salary is well below what you can make elsewhere and they recently deferred much of the bonuses until the latter part of the year. From a business perspective I can respect why this was done but I believe this is going to result in significantly more turnover of top performing reps who have been with the company a long time. Retaining top sales reps has always been an issue. It is far too common for a rep to have an amazing year and then be gone the next year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to build an excellent culture that energizes employees and encourages innovation. Find a better way to retain top talent. Increase base salaries so they are competitive. Revise comp plans so reps aren't penalized as heavily when one or two large accounts don't renew. Continue to host awesome kick off events with great speakers.
