Pros

* You can build your career with hard work
* Do your job, do it right and you gain respect in the industry
* The sky is the limit (if you want to aim low)

Cons

The only downside is if you are not fit for this industry you are going to drown. It is fast paced and you get paid in accordance to how hard you work. I have seen many salespeople come in thinking that it is going to be an easy ride, that all they have to do is pick up the phone and the money just comes jumping out at you. Well, if you dont know how to create business relationships and know how to handle people hanging up on you, well, you may be a better fit in some paint department at a local hardware store.

    Because of this, management was given to those who are great sales people rather then great leaders. These were people who were drinking the CB juice and had absolutely no experience anywhere else. They're only way to teach was to show how they were sucessful two years back in another economy. Management were not people you could expect to learn from.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Matt and Brent were the backbone of the company. They were smart. They were innovative. They liked their job. Everyone else just ran around yelling at you to do whatever was the new trick of the day.

    Pros

    great product, great sales training. They want to teach you how to sell. This is a great first sales job and gives you the ability to move from inside to outside.

    Cons

    Many times the expectations of Sr. Management are not aligned with the world outside of Careerbuilder. Quota are huge and the amount of products that can be sold are crazy. You can not keep things straight. Management also very much has a group think mentality, which can be good and bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on one product at a time and spend more time perfecting it before you have the sales force sell it.
