    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to leverage leadership potential, instead of sticking someone in a corner if they haven't lived and breathed your products for 20 years.

    Great company, but they promote too often on tenure

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, fantastic telecommuting policy. A number of lawyers come here to work thinking they will get rich. They won't. If you work a inside sales (telemarketing) job, that is the pay you are going to get (even if you have a JD). You want more, go practice law or get an outside sales job here because they pay in six figures.

    Caring leadership and heavy investment in new products.

    Well respected by customers

    Cons

    Constant management by spreadsheet. Goal/cost=quota is the technique, no matter if the market supports what we are selling or its cost. Quotas are based not on accounts, but by satifying "your sahre" of the managers target. Managers do not fight back on unrealistic goals.

    Speaking of managers, about 75% suffer from the Micahel Scott Syndrome: promote the best salesperson to manager and have them lead by making everoyne copy what they did instead of coaching and developing to their strengths.

    VP sadly are even worse. They spend 90% of their time on conference calls and waste time on details to make sure things are done their way (e.g., discussing what the menu should be at a customer event). Also, they frequently will say 10-15 things are priority ONE. This changes based on this month's numbers.

    Reorgs: wow. It is astounding how management thinks moving the boxes around creates value for the customer. If we would take the money spent on this and just buy plane tickets for us to go visit all of our customers, we would see profits go up by 10%

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a competency and activity review of all VPs and managers of people. I think you would be shocked at what you pay them and what they actually do all day. I don't think sitting on conf calls, making decisions about fonts on invitations and reviewing PPTs/spreadhseets warrants a 200K+ income
