    Cold call sales is not for the faint of heart! Starting salary is pretty low compared to other sales programs.

    Pros

    Free food, snacks, yearly metro card, and good benefits

    Cons

    Managers barge your calls, which wouldn't be an issue but you don't even know the product that you are pitching to business owners. Managers doesn't really give you the run down on the product they just throw you on the phones

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have patience , teach your employees on the products before throwing them on the phones

    Pros

    The company culture is great. There is always an awesome energy in the building with music bumping and people walking around the sales floor. Food is provided by the company, and you can grab snacks or drinks at anytime.
    The management structure is great, and they will always give you direct feedback. You can also compete for prizes as a top rep which helps to keep everyone motived.

    Cons

    Minimum of 80 calls a day can be really tough, but they set you up to succeed. You'll often be forced to push someone into signing a deal when they're not quite ready. This definitely is not a consultative sales position, and you will be forced to do whatever it takes to hit your number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easy to get to commission faster. I believe this was changed from 75K-30K so they're moving in the right direction.
    Also the territories can be extremely unbalanced, but I believe they've changed this as well!

    They WORK you. Everything is team building which is good but you are required to hit particular numbers and if you dont its definitely a problem.

    I worked at Yelp

    Pros

    Great Atmosphere, free lunch casual office as well as beers on location. Happy hour pretty much every Friday. Culture is very important there and it is very easy to get along with co-workers.

    Cons

    Monotonous day to day. If you get stuck with a bad territory you could be in trouble. Though they help you, sometimes unrealistic expectation if you are not meeting your quota. A lot depends on your manager and your territory. Salary is OK for a sales job.
