A Revolving Door in Sales

Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee)

ProsProvides initial and ongoing training.

ConsManagement applies same sales metrics for all territories regardless of market opportunity. Always assumes the problem is the Sales Rep, not the territory. Sales cycle can be long, yet Sales/Branch Mgrs can change territories on a whim. Sales Mgr turnover high as well (think 18 mos). Emphasis on "boots on the ground" which can result in fewer sales opportunities per Rep.

Advice to Senior ManagementAcknowledge local market dynamics.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
