Lots of change, some growth, quite a bit of micromanagement

Pros

Incentives, product knowledge, interaction with manufacturer partner

Cons

micromanagement, not great benefits, lack of consistency in fulfillment of solutions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There's much more to a sales job than (just) we expect you to sell, sell, sell.

    Former Employee - Inside Sales in Auburn, WA

    I worked at Zones full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Leads by the thousands, some cool perks. If you hang around for 3-5 years, you will get hand me down accounts from all the turnover and you could end up at six figures after 6-8 years just for sitting there and waiting. Most people quit, a few get fired for really performing poorly, and even fewer succeed at any substantial level, but the opportunity is there and is real.

    Cons

    Poor pay, poor benefits, lack of concern for employees well-being, solely profit driven. The owner is all about the company valuation, and he should be, but I think there is a balance that could be achieved. Most employees are underpaid and hate their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring about your employees.

    Pros

    people, free food, 40 hour weeks, 6 figures, new CEO with new vision

    Cons

    lots of processes need to change to be more customer centric. Sales has to deal with a lot of incompetent support people, that make our jobs harder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen more and act on what you are hearing
