Overall, a great entry level sales job if you fit the mold

Senior Account Executive (Current Employee) Scottsdale, AZ

ProsIts possible to make $70K+ right out of college if you pick up the job quickly (uncommon but doable). Most reps will make around $40K their first year, but top reps will easily clear six figures. Great overall benefits, free food, drinks, beer, and lots of offsite events. The company is growing very fast and going in the right direction. Stock options grant if your lucky enough to get some (I hear they have decreased the grant substantially since I started). Overall a fun, easy job if you can thrive in a sales environment, if not you will likely be stressed out!

ConsNot a very professional environment. Tenure is more important to upper management than talent. If you get stuck with a bad territory you're chances of being a top producer are almost zero. High turnover rate. No 401K matching from the employer.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote people based on talent and ability to get the job done best, not tenure or who drinks the kool aid the most. Plenty of superior candidates get passed up every hiring round for inferior (but more "Yelpy" and/or tenured) candidates. Adjust quotas based on territories.

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