    Pros

    Flexible work environment, great team atmosphere in my department, young and fun, easy mobility within company up to a point

    Focus more on the strengths of the editorial department rather than only on sales

    Pros

    - Great training - two weeks of sales and product training with a three month ramping period
    - A lot of resources available to the sales team; the company wants you to be successful

    Cons

    - Goals can be inconsistent and very high
    - Negative press against the company can make selling quite difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't micromanage and trust your senior reps
