Great launching point for a sales career

OUTSIDE SALES (Former Employee)

ProsThe training was great, as was the support from management. They really made sure that you knew what you were doing and were able get out and make your sales.

ConsI was in the top 10% of sales people in the company and making less than 35K a year. While there is room for growth, the positions are few and far between and the low pay does not encourage you to stick around long enough to get a promotion.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease the salary or commission for sales reps, it is the only thing that will keep talent.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
