Unless you have no other options, look elsewhere.

Account Executive (Former Employee)

ProsFree food
good insurance
casual workplace attire

Cons- At the mercy of a terrible territory system
- no 401k matching
- no opportunity for career growth unless you're part of the "it" social group
- extremely unprofessional workplace atmosphere
- treated as a number and nothing else
- you will work for a manager that is less qualified than you

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't pretend you are concerned about employee retention. You talk the talk, but you need to walk the walk.

Level the playing field -- the rich get richer (some through dishonesty in selling) and the poor get fired.

Get a better handle on your territory system -- Metrics don't mean everything in determining good turf - get input from the people who are actually on the front lines, not someone looking at a spreadsheet.

Don't promote managers based off of a few good selling months and then overlook your true leaders. You have management that not only can't do their jobs, but don't know how to do the job of their subordinates

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
