Sales Executive (Current Employee)
Herndon, VA

ProsFree soda
Cool parties
Commission is nice when you can hit it.
The people you work with (not the management) is why you stay.

ConsWhere do i begin...They blind you with all this stuff that you could have and make. They make it seem like all the leads are warm which is far from the truth. Next the lead pool they give you are ones that are from random sites they tricked people into signing up for. They are trying to push their VMS upgrade on to all their clients with no cheap option and it is not performing well for how much time and effort they put into it. The turn around in this office is scary. After you ramp up and you are not performing you will be fired on the spot. You get tons of vacation time but never really allowed to use it. This is a good company if you have no idea what you are doing and you barley passed college. Otherwise working here was one of the worst decisions of my life. Do not make the same mistake I did and fall for their tricks.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind managers that look into the people and not the numbers. To many managers.
Stop LYING TO EVERYONE....The truth goes a lot further

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
