    I have been working at Vocus full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I had read a lot about Vocus software by reading tech blogs and marketing blogs. The software is one-of-a-kind and no one else offers a product like Vocus. The revolutionary product is what motivated me to apply for a job. Once I interviewed, it was clear to me that the people here are happy and that they value their employees over anything else. The directors who I interviewed with seemed more concerned about their people than their quotas and they also seemed trustworthy and genuine, which is hard to find in sales.
    This job offers a much more stable working environment than my previous sales job and I am confident about the clear career path that is offered here. I can see myself being successful and moving up to the role of director and managing a sales team for Vocus in the future. There is clear career path to follow and I really like that about this position.

    Cons

    I do wish the location was actually in the city of Washington, DC. There is no metro available to get to work and I would prefer to work in the city where I live.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would switch up the cube environment and make it a more open floor plan. I would update the computers to Macs. My computer is so old and slow. It would make us even more efficient if we used updated technology.
