    Great place to work so far...

    SBE Sales (Current Employee)
    Herndon, VA

    ProsThey restructured the comp for SBE and MMSE Sales... much more compelling than before
    Change in leadership- the environment feels much more team focused... our executives make a point of congratulating us and knowing our names!
    Product is awesome- its fun to sell- and not very technical
    Free Candy and Drinks- Food trucks come to MD-- not Herndon...
    Quotas are not unrealistic if you do work

    ConsNo food trucks at the Herndon Office
    We definitely went through some growing pains and alot of things changed quickly but it seems like it was all for the better
    I would love the ability to bring my dog to work!

    Advice to Senior ManagementSales reps like to be recognized, continue to come to the Herndon office so we can see more leadership!

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

    Don't be fooled

    Sales Executive (Former Employee)
    Herndon, VA

    ProsThe money. But no stability. Beware

    ConsMassive firing every quarter. Employees are forced to write positive evaluation. Upper management speak poorly of thier employees.
    “Beware recent college
    - New college grads get herded to this place with lots of false promises, I always felt bad for them.
    Do your research prior to working for this company. Wouldn't recommend this job to anyone not even someone I hated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet it together.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Introduction into a growing industry

    Software Sales Executive - Small Business (Former Employee)
    Herndon, VA

    ProsI took this job with limited B2B sales experience and was quickly educated on the cloud marketing space. There is a casual work environment that gives a lot on the job perks and company outings.

    ConsThe Salesforce is HUGE!!! So quality leads are sparse and hard to come by which leads to higher turnover than what there should be. Too many middles managers that have small teams. If you have a bad manager then they can make your life miserable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the Sales force small

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