    Current Employee - Account Executive in Milwaukee, WI

    I have been working at Zywave full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    base + commission and full benefits, work hard/play hard mentality, opportunity for advancement from within, Spiffs and different sales contests makes it very rewarding

    Cons

    First couple weeks of training can get boring with a lot of reading sales books and writing weekly reports, CRM system the sales team uses to prospect needs a lot of cleaning up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    play a larger role in closing deals instead of just talking about the activity that takes to get there

    I have been working at Zywave full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Growing fast
    - Normally promotes from within. I have been promoted once, and I feel its possible to go higher
    - Open communication - management shares specific numbers & is more candid than I have ever seen
    - Lost of fresh energy in all teams
    - Easy to make friends and attend social events
    - Sr. management, especially Jim Emling, really has a stunning grasp on the details of the whole company. He is a bit tough to get to know, but once you do, he's really impressive.

    Cons

    - Some of the middle managers are pretty new at their jobs - they were good individual performers, but do not have a lot of training.
    - Performance review process seems forced.
    - Bonuses seem hard to achieve 100% payout - I got 70% last year, but it seemed like a good year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Consider making the bonuses more achievable. It feels like they are set too aggressively.
    - Provide more training for newer managers.
    - Provide more access points to senior managers (all teams).

    Other than that, keep up the great work. It's fun to be part of a high tech company in my hometown of Milwaukee that is growing.
