    Pros

    Awesome benefits OUTSIDE of the medical, which is difficult to accept and very expensive - one option only - take it or leave it

    Cons

    Like any big corporation, lots of internal politics. Very tenured employee base, some of whom seem to benefit from a double standard. Certain managers should be held accountable for their lack of professionalism and inability to work with others in a collaborative manner - but they often are given a pass.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your up and comers - lots of talent there that can run circles around some of your current management if you let them

    Pros

    Best of breed sales training. Gorgeous downtown office. Fantastic management team. Great upside financial potential.

    Cons

    Sink or swim mentality. All out-bounding / cold calling at first. No base salary, all commission based. Very easy to feel overwhelmed at first.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time ramping your reps. Reduce turn-over by being more selective with who you hire, give them more runway (base salary), utilize other tools to help them build a pipeline from day one. The "friend and family" pipeline is inherently uncomfortable to most.
