You can't beat the flexibility

Community Marketing Executive (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

Pros- Great manager.
- Nice sales team of CME's-- very helpful team.
- The most flexible schedule EVER!
- Nice product to sell.
- Great brand name - most people know what Welcome Wagon is (it sells itself at times!).
- Wonderful internal sales support team-- they are all positive and helpful.
- Great marketing sales materials of high quality and usefulness.

Cons- No base salary.
- You don't get book samples unless you beg for them.
- Sometimes a delay in getting contracts/proofs turned around.
- Expense coverage not the best. It's tied to sales performance and when you're getting started, you really live and grow your territory on your own money. It's like having your own company.

Advice to Senior Management- Please put a base salary (not a draw situation) in place-- especially for newbies!
- Invest more in online infrastructure (e.g. electronic contracts are a must have and we don't have!).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
