    Pros

    if you are a sales champion this company will reward you and your upward mobility is endless. The entire culture is sales focused.

    Cons

    The depth of knowledge outside of sales is limited. Thus you really have very little support when selling new products and services.

    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.
