Pros

The reps who exceed quota get rewarded. The reps who are constantly below their numbers should re-evaluate their career choice. CareerBuilder is not a place for folks to come and collect a paycheck. You are expected to work hard and constantly manage your book of business. If you are able to do this - you will be rewarded financially and get public recognition.

Cons

Long hours and you are constantly working - much like any other sales job.
Extensive travel

    Pros

    Benefits, training, learning & development, compensation structure and opportunity to make your own career path. If you want to stay in direct sales the whole time, that's OK...if you want to fast track to management, you're supported as well. Conversely, if you're not happy where you are but doing the work, leadership will help find a position that's more suited to your talents...at least the good ones will.

    Cons

    A lot of Director & Sr. Management roles were given out in the past just based on tenure and whether or not someone "fit the mold" of the coveted "Boys Club" that ran rampant for many years. Since the economic downturn, it's gotten much better but I still think there are Managers & Directors that shouldn't be in their positions. This creates disdain for the people that have done the work, asked for the promotions and been bypassed by someone else just because of friendship status or (as mentioned above) company tenure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your employees and what they're asking for, along with what customers are asking for too.

    Pros

    - Fun
    - Never Boring
    - Everyone is focused and the focus comes from the top
    - A lot of freedom on how I do my job
    - They test an area before they throw too much money at it.
    - Focus on Leadership, not Management at the upper levels is very good
    - They do employee surveys and actually make changes from them

    Cons

    - Communication could be better
    - Change comes quickly. You have to get used to that.
    - Early leadership training is needed for anyone becoming a Team Lead or Manager
    - The sales area is brutal but the potential to be very young and make a lot of money is there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train young leaders. No one should become a Team Lead or anything higher without a class.
