    Sound, Pioneer Company that is dedicated to training it's employees

    Client Technical Specialist (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsBig emphasis on training it's employees if you are in a customer facing role whether it is sales or technical it is required that you not only attend but pass Global Sales School and it is intense!

    ConsBig emphasis on reports, certifications in your field. If you're in a technical role your success is contingent on your sales specialists success and your bonus payout is paid quarterly. You are ranked among your peers and pay grade so, there is no guarantee that you will get a payout. Pay raises are only given to the top 1%

    Accounting company that happens to sell technology.

    Software Sales Representative (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsGood people
    Generally good management
    Ethical and fair
    Good technology

    ConsAs an accounting company, expenses are managed maniacally
    Being so big, things move and change very slowly

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep hiring new folks to add more agility to the organization. Don't obsess over expenses (including comp plans) which degrade morale.
