    I worked at MemoryBlue full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Get to work with good group of young professionals and recent graduates -Received lots of great sales training that you wouldn't receive anywhere else -Great way to start your sales network in the tech industry since almost all the AEs end up working as sales reps for tech companies in the area

    Cons

    -Lots of long hours -Very strict schedule -Sometimes it helps to be lucky and be put on an "easier" account

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, I very much enjoyed working here.

    I worked at MemoryBlue full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Nimit is an incredible boss and will allow you to grow and give help when asked. - Nimit has your back when things get tough. - The office is full of people who are fun but also willing to work hard. - There is really nothing out there like memoryBlue- it gives you an incredible opportunity to get into the tech sales space, which is generally really hard to do. - Learn from sales pros Guru Ganesh and John Costigan, not to mention Nimit. - Make a reasonable amount of money for an entry level job in sales. Many companies will promise large commissions, but they are often unrealistic and unattainable. Stick with a base salary you can live off with potential to earn more. - You can get hired our by your clients and earn even more money- that happened for me in less than 6 months. - You simply won't find a better place to start your sales career.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any. More free tacos? Ping pong tournaments? I don't know..

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Nimit, you are fantastic, and Chris and Marc over at HQ are visionaries.

    Pros

    business model is everything they promise it to be.

    Cons

    the company promises to place you at new jobs, which they do. However, be VERY wary of the opportunities they bring forth.

    Pros

    great training, great culture, this company will help you start a successful career in software sales, also there is a keg in the office

    Cons

    the work isn't always easy and the people who are successful work longer hours (which is normal for sales) but you get out what you put in and the reward definitely outweighs the challenges

    Advice to Management

    open offices in more cities!

    Pros

    - Excellent culture in the office, although it is smaller than the Headquarters based in Washington D.C - The position is catered towards recent college graduates, but good for someone who's already in the professional environment - A lot of valuable hands-on training; acts as a stepping stone into greater opportunities with much higher salaries - Great networking opportunities both within the company and with clients

    Cons

    - As an employee, you need to stay extremely diligent when looking at your commissions earned and other HR-related aspects of the position. - No 401K plan, medical benefits don't begin immediately

    Advice to Management

    - Implement an automated system for receiving commission - More training directly with a manager, especially within the first few weeks. An employee shouldn't have to rely on his/her peers for 80% of training purposes.
