Great earning potential if you are into sales.

Sales Manager (Current Employee)

ProsExcellent Earnings especially for an entry level position. Start-up company type atmosphere as opposed to a corporate Job. European company so great vacation and benefits. Opportunities to work abroad and all over the USA.

ConsA lot of upper management is at their position since they where with the company at the early stages, therefore a lot of them are not knowledgeable and acquired position based on friendships. Most upper management is very young has no work experience other than Meltwater. A lot of management is from Europe so has no real understanding of the US business climate.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo many impulse decisions on the direction of the company that are poorly thought out. Many promotions seem more because of friendships within management rather than performance based.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
