    Pros

    Decent parking, free coffee. The benefits end when you punch in and resume when you punch out.

    Cons

    Classic bait and switch job offer. Substantial bonuses and earning potentials are dangled in front of new recruits in order to lure them into sales positions. These bonuses quickly disappear around month three as management ramps up quotas so high that bonuses are no longer achievable. Compensation plans are adjusted to the companies benefit month to month in order to avoid paying bonuses or commissions. Do not expect to make more than your base salary. Management changes quotas mid quota period in order to avoid paying bonuses. Management style flip flops from neurotic micromanagement to out right bullying. Zero honesty and transparency from management at all levels. Sales positions at this company are a revolving door waste of time for anyone looking for a decent job working for decent people at a decent rate of pay. Avoid this pack of thieves unless you are truly desperate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All the veterans of the sales force at this company have told me that Global was once a great place to work. Cleary that is no longer the case. I would estimate that 80% of the sales force is looking to leave on the first train smoking. What happened? Management needs to stop hiding in theirs offices all day and show some decent leadership instead of bullying their sales force and treating them like factory workers. IT infrastructure needs a total over haul. Customer service needs dramatic improvement and turn around time on issue resolution. This company is looking to grow but no evolve. Antiquated sales practices are dragging this company down, slowing or stagnating growth. Current management does not posses the talent or ability to fix this companies serious problems.

    Stuck on metrics, not the revenue. Missing the big picture

    Pros

    Good benefits, 8 to 5, no weekends or overtime, great employees. Good Clients.

    Cons

    Two hours talk time minimum (impossible/unrealistic), 1/3 of all employees are on a correction "action plan" (final warning). Many old employees (high pay) have been forced out with new commission structure. Family owned and operated (meddlesome), changes every week, and constant threats. Upper management has no clue, they just grind on employees and managers on a daily bases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your managers run their branches without the constant interference. That might stop your best employees and managers from leaving.

    Pros

    There Is Absolutely Nothing To Like

    Cons

    Poor Management Top To Bottom
    Poor Benefits Wait Time 120 Days
    Poor Training
    Poor Commissionable Opportunities
    Poor Communication Between Team Leaders and Sales Managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company. I came in with a group of 4 people Only 1 person remains and odds are that person will leave their employment. The ability to make a living for a new sales person is extremely limited as the tenured sales reps have the largest account base and anybody new will be hard pressed to pay their monthly expenses at home. When the clock strikes 5:30 PM which is their end time the entire sales force caravans out like a bunch of wilderbeast if that doesn't tell the story of how bad morale is then I don't know what will.
