    Pros

    The best thing about this company is that you are in control of your paycheck. If you are willing to work hard and do the right things for the first 2 years you will be making the money you are looking for! It is all about seeing the forest through the trees!

    Cons

    The first 2 years are difficult, and the pay is low to begin with. Once you establish your book of business the job is much more enjoyable and financially lucrative!

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to make the first 2 years a bit easier on the sales people - nobody wants to work for 25K a year!

    Decent place to work BUT only if you can tolerate company processes and low pay.

    Pros

    Good benefits, friendly coworkers and managers, training department sets you up to succeed with entry learning structure.

    Cons

    Poverty line base salary. Goals are very hard to reach, setting yourself up for success seems like a huge mountain to climb. Business environment is not as cutting edge nor reflective of technologies that the company sells. A very unattractive place to work, nothing to brag about. Fellow coworkers are sometimes unruly and immature due to a lack of authority. More accountability is needed when it comes to general process control.

    Advice to Management

    Bigger base pay is needed to attract talent. Provide more opportunities for growth among teams, be more open to revolving education after the beginner training program. Reward work ethic with leads. Team managers should have a better grip on team professionalism to prevent nonsense from intruding on productivity.


  3. It is an IT sales position lots of cold calling and people hanging up on you.

    Pros

    Other employees were fun to be around. The company trained you on IT infrastructures and sales tactics.

    Cons

    Cold calling IT staff was probably the worst part of this job.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure what to say over all management treated everyone well.

    Pros

    The pay is great, company bonuses around every corner, the culture is friendly and supportive.

    Cons

    The workload is intense and as in any sales community you start at the bottom and work your way to the top.
