Pros

Can make decent money if you hit quotas. However the company decides to raise quotas by 10-12% every year because that is the growth they have promised corporate. They do this without taking into account that the market is very competitive and that they haven't come up with new solutions/products that will lead to the new growth they want. This leads people to try and be creative in the way they make thei "number", which is reviewed ad nauseum by managers on a daily and weekly basis.

Cons

Shrinking industry with intense competition

Advice to Management

Realize that the market is much more competitive than they realize

    Please try harder to keep jobs in this country -- stop outsourcing work to India and China.

    Pros

    Besides the mandatory "core hours" of 9:30 to 3pm, hours are flexible. It's also possible to work a 4-day, 10 hour workweek. Basically, as long as you work 40 hours/week, when you work those hours are basically up to you. There's also lots of opportunity to work from home if necessary, i.e., if your child is sick.

    Cons

    Because the Cleveland office is relatively small, there is very little opportunity for advancement, unless you consider moving to one of the bigger offices is Rochester, New York or Eagan, Minnesota.
    Upper management doesn't know what's really going on around the office and tends to promote and praise employees who don't necessarily deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    promote the employees who really deserve it.
