    Sales Position at Study Island

    Regional Sales Representative (Current Employee)
    Albany, NY

    ProsThe company provides you with the tools you need - laptop, phone reimbursement, expenses, etc. There is a good balance between support and autonomy. The company treats its employees very well and has good benefits for a company its size. The compensation plan allows you to make a good living as long as you put in the effort.

    ConsWorking out of a home office, and with few physical get-togethers, either regionally or nationally, you can feel isolated at times. At times, the compensation does not seem to match the high stress level. There is a lot of pressure at the end of the month, resulting in feeling like the stereotypical used car salesman.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSchedule more regional meetings, perhaps quarterly, to help with the feeling of isolation.

    Study Island, Generally a good company to work for; some drawbacks.

    Program Consultant (Sales Representative ) (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsVery supportive of employees. Advances from within. Casual atmosphere. Great colleagues.

    ConsStudy Island has been bought by a big equity firm. Since then, sales reps' commission rates were significantly cut. Even when a sales rep makes quota, (which gets exponentially higher every year), usually the rep's commission rate is cut slightly. The end result is that the sales rep's earnings are kind of kept in control no matter how good he or she is.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward top sales reps properly. Pay attention to detail with customer support - which in the past has been one of our strong points. We're growing too quickly to keep up with things properly.

    Great stepping stone for young sales rep

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat program that is easy to sell. Mostly free to work independently with minimal supervision. Great culture in Dallas office.

    ConsLow base pay. Each quarter they seem to raise goal and lower commission. When company went public it became difficult to make the same kind of money as before.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe program is wonderful but your reps are what got the company where it is today. Please compensate them fairly.
