Current Employee - Inside Sales Account Executive in Chicago, IL
Current Employee - Inside Sales Account Executive in Chicago, IL

I have been working at InnerWorkings full-time (more than an year)

Pros

With all the organizational changes opportunities abound, IF they post the job. Some really nice people to work with outside of senior management. Spend six months there and get gorilla training.

Cons

No opportunity to really make money. Always changing compensation. Senior management worries more about lining their pockets rather than helping you earn money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't have double standards. Pay your people better. Post jobs internally like you are supposed to instead just announcing a new position.

    I worked at InnerWorkings full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Awesome people
    Simple business model
    Great location
    Informative and well run training program (trainers do the best they can with what they are given)

    Cons

    Poor commission structure
    Zero chance of upward mobility unless you are "tight" with management
    Your work/success is solely measured on metrics (call time, dials, opportunities)
    Information learned in training ("what makes us different from everyone else") is not true
    They claim that things are changing but they never do (if anything the get worse)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie to your employees. Keep them in the loop and be honest. Work on our "buying power" and other value propositions so we can actually be competitive in our pricing and overall service. Keep a closer eye on your managers and make sure they are helping set their teams up for success. Also, HR needs to lighten up a little...aren't they supposed to be the friendly people?

    Pros

    Great peers to work wtih. Interesting business

    Cons

    All the hard working people get paid very little and the senior managers make all the money. Not respected for who you are

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people better before they all leave. Lots of companies want your people and you are more concerned in thinking you know better.
