Pros

Working with small to medium sized businesses is rewarding. The people at the telephone companies are great to work with, and always helpful and respectful.

Cons

The pay standard is way below national levels for this type of sales. Not getting the proper tools to do your job on time seems to be a real problem.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to have a better understanding of how the paperwork and processes are successfully achieved. Being more supportive of the Sales Force is one of the most important factors of being a good sales manager. Get out in the field and work beside them on a daily basis. Knowledge of the canvas is key.

    Pros

    Helping telephone companies achieve a great directory. Knowing that was we were doing at that time was putting out a great product.

    Cons

    Management & supervisors would rather be friends with a core group then a constructive team. Allowing some to blatantly break rules set up in handbook, while not looking at the double standard they were setting with others. HR Manager VERY condescending.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Send your management team to some how to deal with people classes.

    Pros

    It's great working with the customers and the telephone companies. It's a fun product to sell. Support staff is great!

    Cons

    Upper management changes policies as often as the wind blows without any consideration for the ultimate outcome. Upper management tries very hard to find ways to pay its employees less. When they see you succeeding in an existing market, they put you into markets with no existing accounts and demands you do nothing but sell new, which means a lot less income. They change policies to make it harder and harder for the reps to meet objectives and earn bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to trust your employees. Don't change your policies every other week. Treat others with respect and treat them the way you would want to be treated.
