Learned a lot, but was difficult to have a sustainable career.

Sales Representative (Former Employee)

Pros- Upward mobility possible if you make your quotas and are a team player.
 - Great money back in the day (I left the company in 2008 before the market crash) before law firms started cutting costs and subscriptions.
 - Great products and services to sell.
 - Strong brand and very strong resources in Eagan for product information and sales support.

Cons- Territories typically change every year (challenge to develop meaningful client relationships).
 - Highly unstable environment (products come in and out of your bag often) and high turnover
 - Experience can vary widely depending upon your sales manager
 - Highly complex compensation plans
 - Zero base salary (again, this was a while back - I believe field sales people are paid salaries now).

Advice to Senior ManagementInstitute better vetting processes for hiring and promoting management; develop processes to ensure consistency of customer experience.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
