Inside Sales

Inside Sales Account Manager (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

ProsSmall teams divided into verticals.
Strong team management.
On-site cafeteria.

ConsEvery January they laid-off employees at higher salaries. Then, a month later, a whole team of employees in the same position would be hired. This was not based on merit. It didn't matter if you made your numbers or not. In fact, many sales account managers at the top of their game were laid off. This was fear inducing to the staff and made management look like they were constantly being hounded by upper management in ways to save the company money. Disheartening.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your employees who are making their numbers. Don't toss them aside for a new round of employees that you can hire at lower base salaries b/c all of the employees do see what you're doing and it only makes you look like you disrespect your teams.
