    Pros

    Victor Allis is brilliant.
    Global organization is incredible - things outside of N. America are AWESOME!

    Cons

    Lack of N. American sales leadership.
    Employee harassment.
    Bullying.
    Management degrades their sales staff as documented by their extremely of turnover for their sales reps in North America.
    Intimidation used as a communication style.
    Horrible micro-management.
    1980s approach to sales (aka cold calling 100 prospects per week) - out of touch with reality
    All communications are monitored by sales leadership (including emails, instant messaging, etc.)
    Weekly reports require daily play by play (instead of wanting to help, everything is criticized)
    Inappropriate language and behavior
    Sales management discourages relationships within other C-levels
    Demoralizing "coaching" emails
    Bi-polar personalities at the top of the chain
    Several sales team members under medical care for treatment of panic attacks and high blood pressure due to stress and the way they are talked to
    Email and verbal threats to fire people
    Lack of existing pipeline - lied to get sales A players to join the team in the recruiting process
    Hired for the job, but never met the direct manager until the first day on the job
    All of the sales team is afraid and cowed down. Everyone feels like they are battered and held hostage.
    Female employees are taken advantage of.
    Cut throat
    Boiler room
    Batting zero

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace North America sales management leadership.

    Pros

    Victor Allis is brilliant
    Everything outside of the N. American geography is awesome. Smart, brilliant people.

    Cons

    Sales leadership and management needs to be replaced in North America
    Severe micro-management of sales team
    Abusive communication style by sales management
    Surveillance of all sales activity through email, Skype and other methods (they still use GroupWise)
    Weekly sales call metrics of 80-100 sales cold calls per week
    Cold calling? Really? Are we in 1980? They still use "Selling to Vito"!!!
    Monitoring of everything you do - you have to cc sales execs on all emails
    Threatening to fire people on weekly sales calls
    Bait and switch to get A sales players to come to Quintiq
    All sales people are afraid to speak out
    Never met my first line manager (because I never interviewed with him) before my first day on the job
    Demoralizing feedback and sales management - they could care less that I had a family
    We received "coaching" emails offering to help us. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
    Weekly activity reports turned into "criticism" reports
    Salespeople are under medical care for panic attacks, high blood pressure and 80% are undergoing counseling
    People are screamed at, yelled at and treated like dogs
    Although many people have brought these situations to HR, they could care less
    Recruiters lied to candidates. There is NO pipeline. Your job will be to cold-call and get business and people who have been there over 6 months still do NOT have one deal in the pipeline
    Inappropriate office relationshipsBottom line - THIS IS THE PRIME EXAMPLE OF WORKPLACE HARASSMENT

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace North American sales management, leadership and sales operations.

    Pros

    The Quintiq solution offering is uniquely positioned in the marketplace and the level of intelligence and experience across sales, presales and delivery is unmatched in the industry. It's great to work for a company receiving recognition by the industry's top analysts and partners and for that recognition to be reflected in the sales pipeline.

    Cons

    Not enough time in the day!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue growing partner relationships, spend on marketing and investment in sales team.

    Pros

    Sales management is driving new sales channels, leveraging the strengths of our solution and exploiting weaknesses of our competitors. Working with the best sales and pre-sales leadership in my career.

    Cons

    Enterprise sales are just tough. Only con I have is that there are not enough days in the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more selective in hiring sales executives and leverage existing team members in the process. Fast growth has led to fast hiring and some bad hires have caused distraction.

    I worked at Quintiq full-time

    Pros

    Modern office, smart executive team, good e-learnings to train employees, financially stable company with strong historical growth. CEO extremely bright and much more open and honest with employees than the typical polished American CEO who "spins" everything.

    Cons

    High sales turnover. Culture of micromanagement. Salespeople always walking on eggshells. Technical resources for sales support are in short supply and stressed out. Rigid sales process. Salespeople not empowered to make decisions. Management extremely busy and not often available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider bringing in more professional and experienced middle management or put existing management through leadership training.
