I worked at Novacoast

Pros

Liked the company, services, products etc.

Cons

Sales managers were really just the top salesmen and were getting most of the deals. As usual, an engineering company by and for engineers and salesmen were not valued properly.

    I worked at Novacoast full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work at home
    Ability to make additional $ only if you have the right connections
    Good relationships with major vendors

    Cons

    Very unreasonable base salary and the commission structure not in anyones favor except Novacoast
    Territory managers are equally competitive and not really a Manager
    Engineers make double and quadruple the commission then that of sales
    No solid direction if you do not have any sales background - I felt horrible for those with none or little the latest hire was an ex owner of a retail womans boutique - makes no sense
    The will charge your against your commission for any small fees or credits for customers
    They side with engineers over sales in conflicting situations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your sales force a decent salary and stop charging them for things that should be the companies responsibility. Hire sales force that are experienced and try not to strong arm your vendors when your in the wrong and ruin relationships
