    Pros

    Cutting edge technology with market leader owned by EMC.
    Good compensation plans if you over achieve sales plans

    Cons

    Poor communication and training from sales enablement and company marketing.
    Executive Management believes marketing is not necessary to sell solutions.
    Employees are not treated with respect from management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more emphasis on team building activities, sales enablement and better compensation plans through the reseller channel.
