Pros

Casual work environment. Good pay if you close top business. Work life balance is decent depending on what market you work on, and what time zone you work in if you are in Inside Sales.

Cons

Lot of red tape and inefficiencies in the lead-distribution system/CRM. Leads and prospects for new hires can be undesirable. More intense focus on micromanaging activity.

Advice to Management

Clean up the CRM and focus on actual results- not activity.

    Pros

    No dress code, unlimited paid vacation days. Very laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    Basically they started hiring 25 yr olds to become district managers Who mostly promoted and moved their "friends" to better territories. Very much like a college atmosphere, as others have stated. I understand that change is inevitable, but something literally changed at least every week. Goals increased dramatically with no explanation, micromanaged, good place to work if you're straight out of college but only if you absolutely can't find anything else. otherwise not a good career move. An example of how terrible this place is: I exceeded my yearly target and was promoted to Senior Account Executive because of it, yet while I'm on a one on one with my manager and he's congratulating me and telling me the great news he also gives me a written warning for not meeting that months goal..... During the same meeting. A promotion and a written warning in the same sitting. Made no sense! Worst place to work unless you don't care about your career and just can't let go of your college years. Plus, who even buys Groupons anymore?
