A great place to get your feet wet in technology sales.

Account Executive (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsIt's a great place to get your feet wet in the Technology world. A job here can open doors to great companies like Microsoft, IBM, Symantec etc...

ConsIt's a churn and burn operation. High attrition rate which is to be expected at any entry level sales organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's tough to say. They run a pretty tight ship but it's definitely sink or swim if you're working in a sales capacity. The model seems to be working pretty well for them. As a sales rep there is very limited opportunity for advancement. Figure out a way to retain your employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
