Pros

First, this job isn't for you if you have issues taking initiative, want to work a 9 to 5, or if you don't handle constant deadlines. I've seen some reviews of people saying the compensation sucks if you don't hit your number...I hate to break it to you, but that's how sales works. Take away the quota, it's hard to get people to work hard enough to hit numbers and grow business. Sales isn't a joke, and the reason this company is successful rests on the sales teams. 1. The benefits are fantastic. 2. The compensation plan is the best I've seen in sales--tell me where you can earn an extra $50k on top of your base in an ENTRY LEVEL sales job. 3. Lot's of room for growth--been promoted 3 times in 12 months. You do your job, you move up. 4. Tons of development. Managers are committed to training and improving their staff.

Cons

1. This job takes more than 40 hours per week to be successful 2. There are some sales people at the company that need to go--they're negative and they haven't hit their number in over a year. They're a cancer to the people around them. Management is sometimes too hesitant to let people go.

    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 Management

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

    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
