NOT for Experienced Sales Professionals

Regional Account Manager (Current Employee) Culver City, CA

Pros* Good first sales job for someone out of college
* Free Soda
* 6 months to ramp up
* Two free trips to D.C. for training
* Annual Kick Off trip for sales team; to places like Las Vegas, Miami
* 8:30 to 5:30 - no pressure to work longer hours

Cons* Not for Experienced Sales Professionals - do not get fooled, if you have any type of sales skills pass on this job,
* Micro Management City - it doesn't get worse than this.
* Most managers are sub-par when it comes to closing skills and telecom knowledge.
* The sales team is messing around on youtube 50% of the time
* Most of the deals come in from inbound leads or telecom connections, hard work does not pay off as much as it should.
* Stuck at a desk 40 hours a week
