Going public was a mistake

Sales (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

Pros- Unlimited vacation (may soon be changing)
- Young atmosphere
- Increasing sales tools available

Cons- Constantly changing goals and initiatives
- Poor morale and increased micromanagement
- Each market is run like a different company with different expectations
- Management is in positions based on seniority and when they joined the company rather than qualifications.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe more you treat sales staff like adults the more moral will raise and the more productive they can be. The answer to rep feedback shouldn't be that its a company wide initiative.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
