If you have the skills and put in the effort - you will get the rewards

Field Sales Consultant (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

ProsFinancial reward! The targets are achievable and earning potential is excellent, far in excess of many similar roles - though you will have to work hard to achieve them. The training is absolutley first class; over 3 weeks residential course when you join and ongoing training every few weeks and months. Fellow employees are always willing to help each other and there is a very strong team spirit in the sales office; support when you are not performing so well and applaude when you get a great sale. Managers are very helpful and supportive and are there to help you get the best from yourself.

ConsDespite the company being very keen to promote a healthy "work . life balance", if you really want to achieve you have to put the hours in.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't cut back on the support and the training.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
