Great product, so it's pretty hard to mess up everything else

    Pros

    Nice people, nice location, decent holidays/time-off, some decent leadership at times, some growth but not much.

    Cons

    Lost the culture from top to bottom, this is now a marginal service for most. Bad support in UK and Europe.

    Stiff, uptight people who lack creativity, but excellent compensation plan.

    Pros

    The compensation and benefit plan for sales people is excellent. If corporate culture is not a concern and you are strictly motivated by money, this is probably a good place for you to work.

    The product is excellent. Nothing in the market compares to it.

    Sales quota and targets are achievable.

    Cons

    Extremely stiff & uptight people who lack imagination and creativity. If corporate culture is important to you and you value working in an environment where creativity is encouraged and appreciated, this is not the place for you.

    Sales managers pit salespeople against one another and encourage them to say negative things about each other. Be careful who you befriend, these reports go into your employee file and will likely be used against you later. Everyone out for themselves type of environment. It was like working on Celeb Apprentice every single day. Very hostile working environment.

    Very quick to fire, so hit your targets or be fired. I always hit my targets, so I wasn't fired, but I saw this happen to a lot of people.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more mature sales managers and do exit interviews.
