Great for the newbie seeking experience but extreme caution for those who have experience.

Channel Account Manager (Current Employee) Austin, TX

Pros- Lunch 2x week brought in (but they're skimping as of late)
- Nimble, quick, organization that's growing fast
- CEO is energetic
- The software sells itself so newbies can get experience and confidence
- Product and Marketing Teams support sales like no other company

Cons- Sales Management is horrible
- Don't take vacation it will only mean certain doom for your deals that are outstanding
- Little to no advancement outside of sales
- One word describes the sales floor - cannibalistic
- There is no Channel mentality but rather go direct and go now
- The sales playbook - discount. call/e-mail clients till they sub-come to the pressure and buy
- In regards to salary - max payout is $110k with bonus; it's the target that they've set and outside of that and you become a target or your goal is raised to bring it back in line

Advice to Senior ManagementThe software is great - really. There isn't a need to give away deep margins to get an order today if a day later meets the goal. See the value in your team and those that do what's right vs what's best for themselves. Develop the channel and learn where others have faltered; growth will come at a greater rate if we look to partners to help us.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
