    Pros

    Fantastic Sales training that will translate anywhere you go, management listens to your needs and offers all that they can to get you to meet your goals and push to the next level. Income is great for 3-5 years of total sales experience when you hit your numbers. If you're doing well you can essentially set your own hours as long as you get the job done and demonstrate that you are a team player continuing to guide younger reps. Can earn anywhere from 70-100k+ as an AE and Sr. AE. Fun young group of people.

    Cons

    Not all managers abide by rules of engagement internally which can lead others reps to feel they are at a disadvantage. Implementation and Support teams are not large enough to handle the volume of business that is inbound. There is absolutely favoritism that occurs both within the managerial tracks, as well as the senior, and strategic AE roles. Management should be more liberal with not needing to "sit at the desk until they say so" at the end of the month and quarter, namely when there is a holiday week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Continue to enhance the basic technology offerings so that in the least PERFORMANCE is up to par
    -Ramp up implementation and support teams more effectively as Sales scales so there is not an imbalance.
    -Cross train departments on the OTHER departments they interact with so that as each person develops in their roles they understand what is incentivizing their colleagues. This could change how communication occurs both in tone and context in a positive way.

    Pros

    SPS has a descent benefits package and great people.

    Cons

    Tend to worry more about the quantity of projects we can get through versus quality. Employees end up overworked and frustrated that they can't take time to do it right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. They have good ideas

    I have been working at SPS Commerce full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the pros are good health, dental, vision, and ESPP benefits. 90% of employees are under 30 which is fun and energizing most of the time.

    Cons

    401k Match is $0.25 on the dollar up to 6%, but employees are only eligible after 1 year with the company. EDI isn't interesting nor fun, but they've got a good plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow lateral movement within the company. There's a general consensus among non-management personnel that the opportunity within the company has disappeared in the last 5 years.

    Pros

    Solid vision, fast-paced culture, strong market position and product focus, efficient sales processes, financially rigorous and many more great qualities

    Cons

    Not many negatives to speak of. Perhaps there could have been a bit more productive one on one mentoring and feedback.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course. Excited to see the continued success.

    Pros

    People have fun working here. It's a young environment so for break you can slip out for a coffee or snack with your favorite co-workers. It's right on the Skyway so you can go for lunch at any of the delicious restaurants nearby.

    Cons

    Implementation work can be monotonous once you get the hang of it. Things break as it is a technology based company. Sometimes it takes a while to get things fixed.
