Pros

The best reason to work at JSDU was the flexibility to make my own hours, and leave work whenever and whyever I needed to. No one clocked me in or out, and as long as I got my work done, no one minded what I was up to.

Cons

The main downside is directly related to the upside - although I could work whenever I wanted to, I was so overloaded that I had to work all the time. I covered a territory well beyond my abilities, experience, or training, and that was the norm.

Advice to Management

I suggest considering the work loads of your salespeople before doing more 'reductions in force' or 'streamlining'. A company can only work so lean. Bring back the support staff, reduce the complexity of the compensation model, and let your salespeople do what it does best - SELL.

    Pros

    No micromanagement. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Low salary. Annual reviews result in no pay increase. Each department works in a silo.

    Pros

    Great colleagues, cool products, and great opportunities to work from home, lots of flexibility if handled correctly

    Cons

    Around the clock work, no 8am-5pm work, meetings scheduled depending on where most people are which means nightly meetings for me.
