Good if you are Entry Level

Account Executive (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsIt's a great company / opportunity if you are entry level. Good training program and an interesting industry.

ConsThere was no rhyme or reason for people being placed on certain markets. People with no experience could be put on a large market (where your earning potential is ordinarily higher) and seasoned sales reps could be put on small markets, regardless of what you were told during the interview. It was extremely difficult to move into a different market even as a top performer.

Advice to Senior ManagementFollow through on what you promise. Lean from those with more experience then you.

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