    Pros

    One gets the expereince and partial insight of the growing IT market. Companies such as Novell, BEA, HP, Sun, F5, Oracle, Autodesk outsource their contract renewal business to Service source.
    the company has an alcohol consumption disoder and the benefits for acheiving quotas and beyond were capped/restricted and at times were weak. Who is really motivated to going to see the lousey, near last place SF Giants baseball game and a dinner at ACME chophouse. Lack of creativity is the expression that comes to mind when I think of that as being a motivational management strategy.
    I really am convinced that this company has mismanged the investments from the venture capital firms and wasted their opportunity to achieve true growth. It is true that the company does have an international call centers, but the effectivness and the reactive strategies from the U.S Directors, Managers and ideas from new VP's are poor and desperate.

    Cons

    Top down business model and all that gives lack of respect to sales representative. It felt like a sweatshop at times, especially during the EOQ and when managers and directors act pompous and really act plastic. They don't have true business intelligence, they are sexually biased, lack leadership and employ the most sinister communication. The company does not care about diversity, and treats employees as seatshop workers. The company has re defined the term outsourcing, and employed poor resource management especially when considering the fact that this company still relies on venture capital backing. The companies true identity is yet to be defined and it has an image problem that goes well beyond the internal and external marketing campaigns. Be careful when entering service source, behind the charm and the pompous talk lies a desperate company has terrible reactive managment and business intelligence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify your portfolio and get better marketing capacity. the 1 +1 =3 does not cut it! the company has an alcohol consumption disoder and the benefits for acheiving quotas and beyond were capped/restricted and at times were weak.
