Pros

Stability
Great entry into IT sales
Sales trips and spiffs

Cons

Heavy Micromanagement
Unachievable quotas - And I was there for years but as you progress the goals get to level that are unattainable unless everyone's business is growing at 20% levels month over month.
Heavy Metrics - Call volume, emails, sales quotas.
Low pay - The base pay is extremely on the low side and the commisions and bonus are not consistent with the size of deals and levels or work done to close them.
Long Hours - Consistently working 9-10hrs daily.
No Career development - There is no clear career path here. You will need to get promoted by building strong internal relationships.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop your sales representatives with training and promote from within for top performers. At a certain point motivation to achieve such high sales quotas is not enough to keep the team performing at a high level. Develop your managers and directors, give them the tools to manage as they do not seem to be well equipped to handle the task at hand.

    Twice the work for half the pay, other than that, a great fun company to work for

    Pros

    Solid strong company to work for in terms of company health/longevity. Many free lunches, snacks, and after-work events.

    Cons

    Don't expect any help from anyone. If you can't handle twice the work for half the pay, "there's the door!". Benefits used to be great, but recently went downhill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay loyal hard-working employees what they should be getting (i.e. market average). Hire more support for overstressed non-sales/marketing teams.

    Pros

    you could work there your entire career and make decent money after years. In sales lots of trips/prizes (you get taxed on)

    low pay, long hours, no work/life balance. Long time before career opps open up
