    Worst job I ever had in my life. Terrible management and awful environment.

    Account Manager (Former Employee) Carson, CA

    ProsMade a couple of good business contacts there. That's the only good thing I could say about that job.

    ConsUnderpaid, unattainable revenue goals, incompetent management and poor training program. There isn't enough space in this section to cover all the cons.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of all of upper management at your New Age Electronics office in Carson. I'm surprised you don't have more lawsuits because of the way they run things there. I would've filed a lawsuit if I had the money and the time to do so. I feel like I'm doing you a favor, that you don't deserve, for submitting this feedback. New Age Electronics is horrible!!!!

    Company review

    Project Manager (Former Employee) Ontario, CA

    ProsCompany pays well, hours are not too bad, bosses are good to work with (they give you the freedom). Culture is relaxed and people are smart.

    ConsGrowth opportunities are not too good. Promotions don't happen very often (average once in 2 years).

    Advice to Senior Management- Focus on retaining the talent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Long hours, inconsistent quotas, low pay. Great for entry level experience into IT.....

    VAR West Sales Representative (Former Employee) Fremont, CA

    ProsStability
    Great entry into IT sales
    Sales trips and spiffs

    ConsHeavy Micromanagement
    Unachievable quotas - And I was there for years but as you progress the goals get to level that are unattainable unless everyone's business is growing at 20% levels month over month.
    Heavy Metrics - Call volume, emails, sales quotas.
    Low pay - The base pay is extremely on the low side and the commisions and bonus are not consistent with the size of deals and levels or work done to close them.
    Long Hours - Consistently working 9-10hrs daily.
    No Career development - There is no clear career path here. You will need to get promoted by building strong internal relationships.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop your sales representatives with training and promote from within for top performers. At a certain point motivation to achieve such high sales quotas is not enough to keep the team performing at a high level. Develop your managers and directors, give them the tools to manage as they do not seem to be well equipped to handle the task at hand.

    Twice the work for half the pay, other than that, a great fun company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Greenville, SC

    ProsSolid strong company to work for in terms of company health/longevity. Many free lunches, snacks, and after-work events.

    ConsDon't expect any help from anyone. If you can't handle twice the work for half the pay, "there's the door!". Benefits used to be great, but recently went downhill.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay loyal hard-working employees what they should be getting (i.e. market average). Hire more support for overstressed non-sales/marketing teams.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    extremely low pay with high turnover

    Product Manager (Former Employee) Fremont, CA

    Prosyou could work there your entire career and make decent money after years. In sales lots of trips/prizes (you get taxed on)

    Conslow pay, long hours, no work/life balance. Long time before career opps open up

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
