    Pros

    the company has a wonderful happy environment. they really do a lot throughout the year for the employees, organizing outings and fun events. they have ongoing training, (although, it's not hands on training) which is a downside to it. the training is delivered in a lecture format. great work space and the employees and executives are wonderful to be around!!

    Cons

    horrible base! $24,000. even though, if you have experience in sales, they will offer you an additional $1,000 a month of a garenteed commissions for the first year. still $36k is a joke to live on!! the your first 3 commission checks are split with the semior person working witn you on the deal. the first deal is 75%|25% split. (you get the 25%). the second deal is a 50%|50% split. and the third deal is a 25%|75% split, (you getting the 75%). then you're on your own to make commissions. HOWEVER...there's a catch (isn't there always?) if the deal you are working on is a "rip out" as they call it, where the company you are getting to sign up with SPS already has a service provider in place, and SPS is going to come and "rip out" their existing solution and replace it with SPS's solution, then you will split those commissions 90%|10%!! you getting the 10%!!!! and that is indefinitely until you are promoted to senior account executive!! therefore, it is extremely hard to make any money at this company for the first 2 years!

    plus it's one of the most complex sales I've ever experienced. the learning curve is at least 2 years! this job is really geared around brand new college graduated with no experience. not a place for seasoned experts in sales, as the base is a joke, & the ramp up period takes quite a while to really have a handle on what you're doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay the employees well. 24k is hardly reasonable! even 36k is s joke!! if you have experienced people you want to hire, pay them 50K for the first 6-12 months. no one is motivated when they are struggling to even pay to park. also the 401k match is a joke! you only match $0.25 cents to every
    $1 contributed? why bother?

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to move up and around. The culture of the company is great. If you have an idea, it is very easy to act on it without much approval and make a big difference in your department. Allows you to stand out from the crowd if you put in the effort.

    Cons

    Pay is relatively low when compared to positions at other companies. Sales teams are highly rewarded while operations receives meager recognition and no bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better reward the hard workers of Customer Operations. Yes, sales is important to growing the business, but Customer Operations are the ones that protect that all important recurring revenue. Reward them for it!!!
