Current Employee – been working at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than a year
Pros – Uncapped commission.
Cons – Inside print sales team competes against online store, outside sales reps, and other internal sales units.
Plenty of online product training, but no time during workday to complete it.
Have to go through "boot camp" before you can receive a territory.
Most sales positions use a more short-term transactional model and are not consultative; can get boring.
Advice to Senior Management – Hire sales professionals, shorten the boot camp experience, and let them do what they already know how to do--sell.
Change the current sales model so that employees are working together and not competing against each other.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
