    Cool company but got laid off....

    Account Manager Proshop (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsAwesome products. Some of the best sales training in the world. Stable company. The company is privately owned so they will do what it takes to make the company succeed. There are no stock holders to answer to.

    ConsGoals are somewhat unrealistic. Must be able to relocate. Stressful. The Account manager 1 position is tough because it is basically inside sales/retail.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on marketing. The brand is awesome.

    Great people with amazing products. Brand image brings instant credibility

    Dont stay in same role for more than 3 years. Take first opportunity at promotion otherwise you will get "blacklisted".

    Account Manager Proshop (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsTraining,reputation,some colleagues are true friends

    ConsMANY LA area Commercial side account managers are pretentious at WAVE (yearly kick-off) meetings. Good Ol' Boys club atmosphere. Tendency to hire from outside for commercial AM's, who many times fail, rather than from the talented pool of inside sales people, driving these talented individuals to flourish in other organizations who saw the potential in them.
