    Pros

    The company is amazing. They care about their people, give you tons of perks like great benefits and beer on tap and outings with your teams. They give you tons of support and help to improve your skills. I had a baby like four months into working their and they were very supportive with leave and benefits and even sent me an amazing gift basket.

    Cons

    The position completely underutilizes my education, intelligence, and skills. The job is cold calling and selling online advertising, which is really repetitive and doesn't require too much thought. And the base pay isn't impressive to start with until you get a raise to Account Executive/Senior Account Executive.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more than one product (I know you're working on this sort of) to challenge your sales people to sell the best product and consult with the business more.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. On going training. Great music over the PA. Stocked kitchen. Everyone is willing to help you succeed.

    Cons

    It's a sales job. Be ready to be on the phone all day.
