    Work hard and you will succeed

    Account Executive (Current Employee)
    Blue Bell, PA

    ProsI've been working here for the past 5 years, and Fiberlink provides:
    1. Great work environment/culture
    2. Great commission structure
    3. several resources to assist with your day to day prospects
    4. an award winning, always evolving solution that ANY organization should be looking for security/management of smartphones and tablets.
    5. Pizza Fridays!

    ConsNot that this is a con...but since there are major releases to the platform once every 3-4 weeks, it can take up to 6 months for a new hire to fully understand the product and sales process. As long as you are willing to work hard to understand this process, there is NO reason why you cant succeed here.

    Poor Management and communication skills.

    N/A (Former Employee)
    Blue Bell, PA

    Prosno time off policy, great benefits, and salary.

    Cons1. poor management
    2. in order to get ahead you have to brown nose and kiss butt.
    3. lack of communication between management and employee
    4. if you are not like it is made known by behavior, actions, etc...
    5. quick to sabotage employees that they do not like.

    Advice to Senior Managementlearn how to communicate more effectively and efficiently. need better training processes and outlined policy and procedures that are followed not ones that are made up as they see fit....

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Beware

    (Former Employee)

    ProsThis used to be a good place to work. Met a lot of great people here (none of which are still there).

    ConsI've never seen a company go down hill so fast. At one time, they hired great talent with a ton of potential. Fiberlink used to be a great place to work. Since the change in management, the large majority of the good reps have moved on to bigger and better companies that actually pay well. The few talented people left are taking full advantage of the open vacation policy and are actively interviewing. Fiberlink has turned into a revolving door that hires glorified telemarketers.

    I Couldn't agree more with the poster that said management is LOST. If you're not one of the chosen few, forget it. I also must agree with the previous post that mentioned rampant 'line crossing' even from managers. I'm shocked this company hasn't been sued yet.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart looking for other jobs before IBM cleans house.

    Wonderful place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHigh growth industry, always new challenges, fast-paced, great people, recognized for the work you do.

    ConsWe have outgrown our office space several times so there is a lot of movement and new faces.

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

    Bottom line, if your aren't a favorite, you aren't going anywhere here.

    Account Executive/Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsThey have a nice location.

    ConsManagement is LOST. Each team takes care of a chosen few and lets everyone else suffer. Goals are unattainable, 85% of the sales team misses quota month after month and management does nothing about it. No policy's to protect employees and deal get stolen regularly by senior reps.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou hire some good people you should take an interest in developing or you will continue to have a revolving door.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Careful they promise the world but its churn and burn

    Sales Account Manager (Former Employee)

    Pros1. no pto take off as much as you need but just hit your goals.
    2. nice people at the lower levels
    3.metrics change constantly what is right this week is wrong next

    Cons1. upper management is uncaring and has poor listening skills
    2.The Vp of Sales is arrogant on a good day.
    3. Its just a matter of time before IBM absorbs the technology and dumps the people

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe humble and courteous to those beneath you. Being a bully on the football field is one thing but in the office?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Long sale cycle for B2B

    Account Executive (Former Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsDecent base, but you won't see commission for a while.

    ConsSale cycle length and no communication with your bosses. Don't ask managers any questions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer greater incentive for sales competitions. Hire a socially competent staff of product specialists.
