Pros

Autonomy, Top notch training, Excellent technology, Great benefits. Young, intelligent, energetic sales managers.

Cons

Unattainable Comp Plan, Inside and Outside Reps need to join forces and become a Hybrid position, Young sales managers.

Advice to Management

Inside and Outside Reps need to join forces and become a Hybrid position. Morning sales calls need to require more accountability. Sales Managers need to visit the market at least once every 6 weeks.

    Pros

    Laptop, Iphone. Opportunity to make decent commission during ramp up period.

    Cons

    No communication. The inside sales team is the focus of the sales force. Very little opportunity for new employees. Completely remote, very little direct contact with management. Poorly structured sales organization from an outside perspective. Small commissions, scattered leads with no defined territory. Not able to support more than 1 or 2 successful sales people per market. Only 3 out of about 12 hit quota. 100% turnover in less than a year.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is sorely lacking. Either support your outside salesforce or get rid of it all together. Provide opportunity to succeed to more than just a few select employees.

    Pros

    You meet great people, you can go to work in sweatpants ! Was a great location downtown

    Cons

    Management has no idea what they are doing ... Very hard to track them down during the day (somehow they all disappear for most of the day) ! ...Not very good pay for the amount of work... Popularity contest instead of actual work productivity ... Each department passes a problem on to the next ... No one takes action or responsibility ... A lot of problems are just swept under the rug and not resolved.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized and actually help your employees
