    Current Employee - Pre-Sales Engineer in Cork (Ireland)

    Pros

    Salaries are good.
    Good, stable IT products.

    Cons

    Bullying management, no appreciation of human or social values, meat factory.
    If you sign up here, be aware that you will be sucked out and thrown away if you are only an average employee, not bringing enough money. Management protects each other, even in cases of bullying where the company would have to uphold laws and regulations. Nothing - all fake, no chance to get a healthy work environment.

    Pros

    Good sales model that's excellent training ground for someone new to sales.
    Work ethic and effective use of CRM system.
    Products and support teams.
    The company continues to grow and expand.

    Cons

    Sales targets - it's a lottery system and depending on the territory you got it's either a feast or a famine. And at the end of the quarter the usual suspects are given a pat on the back while the unlucky ones are accused of not following the model.
    No clearly defined career path despite the glib SolarHR communique.
    Pressurized managers dumping on us.
    BS email messaging from management that serves to irritate more than inspire... you just tune out and chuckle at their disdain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something about setting realistic targets in EMEA - certain territories have way more reps than others - yet their quota is the same (illogical!).
    What is being done to address the fact that the company is a revolving door - hint: recently numerous good people left Inside Sales in Cork.
