Pros

Many possibilities to earn a great income if you are motivated to keep learning to be your best and willing to stay on top of your game. Some really great people, many of whom will do whatever it takes to help you succeed.

Cons

Some people in mid management are childish and can help or hinder your income growth and / or maintenance. Have to learn to deal with that.

    Pros

    The pros of working for this company is the money in inside sales is very good if you can do the job.

    Cons

    The cons of working in inside sales at SMS are, they have all of the reps calling the same clients. You may call someone that has been contacted that same day by 4 different reps from the department. The department is very low tech so they don't have a way of managing the contacts.

    Advice to Management

    My advise to the management in inside sales is to use some type of crm to better control your contacted calls.

    Pros

    - Great product
    - Some very talented sales team members
    - Possible to make good money
    - You will learn a lot

    Cons

    They have no interest in your success. It is almost impossible to be successful. You could get lucky and succeed and get some support, but most will be left driving around wasting your time, gas money and talents. You will not have set appointments, so it is unlikely you will see very many people. Some businesses will be lied to about why you are coming, that's especially fun.
    Your sales will likely not go through, so you won't make money very easily and since it's $100 commission, it's just you, no one else out on a limb.

    Advice to Management

    Get your talented people a good BC. Mellow out the extreme culture, you are missing out on a huge number of talented people that are successful sales professionals without being salesy. Top management should look at changing the sales structure, so you can pay people and not just throw a bunch against the wall and see who sticks.
