Pros

Work with seasoned pros in sales
Many enablement opportunities - great sales resources
Opportunity to sell to the largest enterprises in the world
Sales Leadership is sound, visionary, and realistic...no cheap psych-up (most of the time)

Cons

Comp plan lacks incentive muscle - pay is ok, but strategically restrictive
You're at the bottom of the pyramid, so you must be vigilant to secure reward

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep encouraging a healthy blend of persistence, knowledge, and calculated risk-taking.

    Pros

    Good team culture
    Emphasis on training
    Good team and a productive environment
    Nice work space and loaded laptops.
    Pool and ping pong tables.

    Cons

    Since is located all the way in Redwood City at the Pacific Shores center, the commute is kind of taxing. Since people who are new to the Bay Area prefer to stay further down south in Sunnyvale or Santa Clara, commuting to work is really bad.
    Compensation is mediocre and not top notch

    Pros

    Culture, compensation, benefits were all very good. They treat their sales people like gold and want them to make money. Tons of resources to help you succeed and will do what it takes to get a deal done.

    Cons

    Very tech driven with lack of go to market strategy. Too many processes for sales management that half the time mgmt didn't utilize in Salesforce. Some managers didn't have a clue how to manage a team and more spreadsheet focused.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a team and not just another row in your spreadsheet. Connect with individuals at a personal level.
