    Pros

    Good Benefits. Good if you want to learn about database management and other developer tools.

    Cons

    Not all people go through the interview process which seems unfair to the rest of us. No ownership of a person's actions or mistakes. The environment has become hostile where you feel you cannot trust anyone. Not a lot of respect given. You cannot demand respect, you have to earn it and treat others with respect. No room for growth or advancement which is leading to churn.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the current employees, not just new employees.
    Evaluate the hiring process and compensate those who are making a good difference.
    Evaluate your company structure.

    Great products and floor managers, but executive management seems to use company for personal gains.

    Pros

    Loyal employees. Great location. Fun working environment amongst peers. Solid set of products. Work hours are flexible and there is little micromanagement. Floor managers work hard and will do everything they can to help. Overall great place to work and learn.

    Cons

    VP wants to run the business from the golf course as opposed to building trusting relationships within the office. Quota is based off a budget number and divided amongst the reps. Economic metrics or historical performance of territories are not factored into quotas. Management's quota is lower than the combined reps quota.. Most reps do not hit quota so the OTE is completely skewed.

    Advice to Management

    Make quotas attainable so the hard working reps can make the money they deserve and don't have to work in constant fear of losing their job. Get in the office and show your employees your committed to building a business based on trusting relationships and not fear.
