Pros

Good benefits that start on day 1
Flexible with time off

Cons

They run the inside sales department like a call center not a sales floor. It is extremely micro managed to the point where your feel like you are suffocating. Dial reports are sent out 3 times a day at a minimum to the whole team and if you do not have enough dials in their eyes you can expect nasty comments by management next to your name. This is regardless of the reason you may be low on dials such as sending out quotes or working on special projects for customers. If you are not on the phone for a few minutes expect to get an IM on your screen asking what is going on. There is also a system wide banner that management can announce to all why nobody is on the phone during what they deem prime calling hours. They promise you big money when you interview but when you start they give you the commission plan and you see its pretty low plus there is a HUGE bogey every month. Realistically you will not make anything significantly more than your low 30's k salary for at least 2 years. The sales process is slow and processes are pretty archaic. I asked about turnover and was told only 2 people had left when it turns out its more like 20, all new people once they figured out they cant survive on the low money.

Advice to Management

Stop micro managing your people. You will never get the best out of people if you dont give them some space. You are so afraid of relinquishing even the slightest bit of control you are sabotaging your own growth. Be honest about the commission plan during the interview.

    The company is a fun place to work and pays its employees well for their hard work. You must be willing to put in the time and effort needed to succeed here. The company is really growing and hiring. They are always celebrating employee birthdays, holidays or company successes.

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons at this time.

    Pros

    Open to new ideas, team-oriented, lots of autonomy. Everyone works together here; from sales to marketing- you're always helping each other out. Just a great place all around. Personally, I look forward to coming in everyday and I think that's hard to find in most places. The company culture and values are just spectacular and it is looking like it only gets better from here.

    Cons

    No cons at this time.
