Unsteady with a lot of hard work.

Inside Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Dayton, OH

ProsGreat benefits, great time off (4 weeks), base salary for a sales position with a commission program, leads come to you

ConsMultiple incentive plan changes (varied commissions over time for same levels of production), goal is split between existing staff members (so if the staff should be 30 and you've got 25 people on the team, everyone is responsible for the missing five people), difficult to actually use your time off

Advice to Senior ManagementMinor increases in goals and decreases in pay for certain levels of performance are understandable, but not being able to sustain one incentive plan for a long period of time or fairly increasing goals reduces morale. Professional development is a joke - company acts as if it is important but does not go above and beyond to help you actually "professionally develop" yourself beyond encouraging you to utilize internal webinars or completing your CE credits.
