Great place to kick off your career in sales you are motivated, good with people, and can see the big picture

Recruiter (Current Employee) Boston, MA

Pros-Great people, fun work environment
-Excellent career growth opportunities
-Opportunity to make an infinite amount of money if you are successful
-Great training
-An opportunity to learn a lot about companies in Boston and how businesses wok
-Great place to develop sales/business skills such as: lead generation, client relationships, negotiations, time management, handling rejection, etc which will help you succeed in any company
-You always know where you stand and know what you need to do to get a raise or promotion
-Coworkers are very competitive yet supportive
-They days go by fast!
-This job can be very rewarding and you can make a difference for people
-Great way to expand your own personal and professional networks even if you don't stay with the company
-lots of fun perks

Cons-High turnover rate, although that is expected with any sales job
-The days are very structured which helps you manage your time but can be annoying
-The first three months or so are challenging and can be very frustrating if you don't stay motivated and put in 100% every day. You have to generate leads and find clients on your own so if you dont put in the effort from day 1 you will struggle
-It can take a while to get going and can take longer than expected to make a lot of money, even if you are generating revenue for the company but when you do it is worth it
-Outdated technology!
-Strange interview process

Advice to Senior Management-Continue to expand the company and promote the brand in a positive way
-Continue to focus on social media
-Update the technology!
-Either separate the two "brands " more or have them collaborate more so people don't get confused and get the wrong impression
