Pros

I love the work environment, the friendly people I work with, and the benefits.

Cons

There aren't many logical avenues up and out of this position. The Talent Hub does not seem to be implemented at the lower levels... at least, not yet.

Advice to Management

Values on your own talent within the company is talked about, but rarely have I seen people in similar roles promoted.

    Pros

    Solid educational product line. Great clients. Interesting sales process and engaging solution sales - especially on the PSE side.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Sr. Sales leaders were promoted into their positions during an up economy, but with no true understanding of what it takes to sell in current environment. Unintentional diminishers who led to dissatisfied employees and low productivity. Managers given little respect. Meanness valued over compassion. Reps were not given any authority or independence. Processes were non-existent, or worse - crippling. Leadership more interested in protecting their own jobs than creating opportunities or resolving the underlying issues that make selling nearly impossible. Terribly Place to Work if you are a true sales professional. Expect to have every decision questioned and not to be trusted. There's only one smart person in the room and if you're a rep or a front line manager, you can rest assured that no one in the D or VP suite will think it's you. Decisions take forever to make - leading to lost opportunity and revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to recognize talent. Help empower your leaders rather than diminishing them. Create reporting structures that make sense and operationalize the sales processes that cripple your sales staff's ability to perform their jobs.

    Pros

    Informal, low pressure to engage in too many office politics (good if you are not the "lunch out with coworkers every day" type, work-life balance.

    Cons

    Not "fun" or life-changing--low excitement, can be repetitive
