    A step above Marcus Evans, but a Boiler Room Industry nonetheless

    I worked at International Sports Management full-time

    Pros

    Michigan Avenue Office (Great Views)
    Holidays Off
    Friendly co-workers
    Hardcore Sales Tactics
    Supervisors are be helpful given the resources they have
    Unlimited Commission

    Cons

    No call log or customer database system
    High Turnover of Sales Execs
    Cannot use computer for research needs
    You will quit before making a sale b/c of small base pay
    High-pressure sales tactics used
    Borderline and questionable sales ethics used
    You're more of a telemarketer than a salesman

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Might as well pop in the movie "Boiler Room" for training classes. That's what it is from the sales side minus the flagrant stock fraud & huge paycheck. Maybe "Glengarry Glen Ross" is a better training video. You'll be using the same technology to close business as Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Ed Harris, and Alan Arkin did in 1994.

    Sales closing time (time to make first sale) is too long. Companies look for sales success and closing rate, not mindless cold-calling and pitch abilities.

    And to answer one of the earlier reviews, Inside Sales = Telemarketing. Don't get fooled like I did.
