    Pros

    Young group of people that work hard and play hard. Most are friends that hang out after work and on weekends. Feeling of being part of growing something. Product overall is good, very innovative, works well.

    Cons

    Short-sighted management, with strict call and activity metrics on salespeople. They take a robotic approach to selling, very scripted, very methodical... and don't allow sales people to be creative or 'go out of the box' to sell and win deals. People will make calls, just to make their call quota for the day/week... for fear of being put on a performance plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand the company needs to grow after the recent acquisition and must keep close restriction on sales people's activity, but allow them to be creative, and do whatever is necessary to close deals. Make it about sales performance, not call numbers.

    Pros

    - Great energy
    - Lots of young people
    - Great potential for getting paid well and rather quickly
    - Awesome product
    - Do a good job of promoting
    - Cool offices
    - Lots of free food!
    - Happy Hours

    Cons

    - HIGH turnover
    - Growing quickly...but at what cost?
    - Great place to work if you're not in sales
    - Unattainable quotas (consistently)
    - Performance plans aren't performance plans....they're your notice of termination
    - Managers are like frat buddies
    - Minimal sales training
    - Stupid emphasis on "activity" (a person will do just enough just to get you off of their backs)
    - Micromanagement (be prepared to hear it from your manager if you took a 30 minute lunch break)
    - Not much job security

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
