    Pros

    Laid back dress policy, most colleagues are helpful.

    Cons

    High churn in sales department, high favoritism, middle management is generally ill equipped, long sales cycles, lots of dissension amongst the ranks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a sales infrastructure that supports sales reps. Simply hiring sales reps is not a growth strategy, they need leads, support, and achievable quotas. Also, realize that we are post 2008, so marketing and expectations should evolve accordingly.

    Pros

    There is a strong core of smart and innovative people here. I have close friends from my time at eMarketer. The product is decent and always improving, and clients generally like the data provided. Well-respected brand.

    Cons

    The senior managers in the Account Management team are some of the worst I've ever worked with (aside from the President and current CEO). It's clear they have never managed people before and have had little/no training. They put no trust in their people, and if you aren't one of their favorites, you'll dread coming to the office. They are fixed in their own ways; if you have suggestions or disagree with their plans, it usually doesn't matter. The micromanagement is insane regardless of your skills, past experience or sometimes even your current sales numbers - your emails will be read and rewritten before sending to the client. They also promise growth opportunities and career development, but there really aren't any long-term goals/opportunities. My managers never once asked me what my goals were or what I might be interested in outside of Account Management. There is also no real HR department, so there is no impartial party to discuss your frustrations or give/receive constructive feedback. When I left, the morale in the office was dismal and most people were very frustrated and unhappy. It was very much an "us vs. them" mentality and I felt like I couldn't get out of there fast enough. A shame since I enjoyed working with my clients as well as working with most of the people there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in a real HR generalist/team. Overhaul the account management team entirely - especially the managers. Some people are great at selling and terrible at management. Bring in leaders not bosses. Empower the team!
