Small enough to be comfortable, but not aggressive

Sales (Former Employee) San Luis Obispo, CA

Pros*Many people join the company because it is one of the few ways they can live in San luis Obispo and work for a reputable company.
*Inside sales team supports outside team with leads... but expect to lead gen w/channel partners
*Their channel relationships really help drive the sales process and give REC a good reputation
*Solid reputation in the industry for doing good work
*After being there for 18months+ you can basically run the place
*Compensation is fair for the amount of work required at the sales level- after a year or two you can make $80-100k and work 25-30 hours a week.
*Teams are small and tend to hang out/have fun outside of work
*Leadership is pretty darn good!!!

Cons*Job can be frustrating because competition is so fierce and resources are so low.
*A lot of promotions are done based on who went to high school/Cal Poly with who
*Very hard work and you have to be very good at always looking at the positive side
*Have begun switching to a more lean business model. Most salespeople are having to provide own vehicles and have a 'draw' against base.
*Was always suprised at how little administrative jobs paid
*Many of the young folks who helped build the company from scratch are jaded or have left

Advice to Senior Management*Create more levels of advancement for employees
*take risks and dedicate resources targeting EXPANSION not just complacence

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
