    Great place to build your career in sales - if as a contractor

    Leads Development (Current Employee) Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    Prosfreebies, free food, free snacks pool gym etc... and decent salary - also great atmosphere - but i have to say as sales goes there are higher paying companies, although there less benefits in other companies - it depends what you want : benefits vs salary -

    Consnot really just there are higher paying companies, contract workers have little hope of permanent position, or commission and must wait 3 months if renewing
