    Former Employee - Account Executive  in  Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Account Executive in Chicago, IL

    Pros

    -Decent pay - negotiate your base though
    -Nice location in Chicago
    -Good products to sell
    -9-5 type job
    -Freedom in setting pricing

    Cons

    -Micromanagement like whoa
    -Constantly changing demands handed down from the President of the company (managers are even micro-managed / overall atmosphere of the company)
    -Changing commission structure
    -Lack of recognition for a job well done
    -Focus on the the wrong metrics
    -HIGH TURNOVER
    -Customer Service manager can be a terror

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -You need to recognize whats happening with the workforce at your organization. When your turnover rate is barring on 90%, there has to be some recognition that perhaps its not just the employees, its the Company. Show some recognition of people who are doing well (throughout the whole company, not just outside reps)
    -Maintain a focus for more than 3 months at a time; difficult to excel at something when your requests change every time your employees start to do well.
    -President needs to back off and let someone new take the reins...too old school in the way they treat their employees and its costing them a lot of talented people.

    Former Employee - Sales Representative  in  Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Chicago, IL

    Pros

    Decent base salary, nice view

    Cons

    Almost everything. Upper management is incompetent and borderline insane. He makes insane demands and is constantly changing his mind and the company's focus. Micromanagement is insane. Turnover is the worst I have ever seen. Outside reps don't even last 6 months. Inside reps last longer but are treated like interns, putting together quotes and other administrative duties for outside reps. No room for career growth. I could go on but you get the point. Don't work for this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just sell the company and retire already. You may know how to sell but you have no idea how to run a company. When are you going to realize the turnover is a problem with the company, not the people you're hiring?

    Good co-founders with an over abundance of micromanagement

    Former Employee - Sales Representative  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Los Angeles, CA

    Pros

    Good training and education. Passionate founders with an eye for sales and technical education. Cllinical products that have a clinical and financial angle to sell with. Great entry level job to get a foot in the door with medical sales.

    Cons

    Micromanagement that is encouraged from the top down. Passion of the co-founders is not translated well by middle management. Territory managers lack personality and ability to relate to their sales force. Lack of individuality and courage to share a differing opinion with upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on hiring managers with an ability to communicate effecitvely and openly with their sales force. Relationships, relationships, relationships.
