    Pros

    People, leadership, opportunity for growth/compensation, location. Office is nice, work sponsored open bar once a month, catered team lunch on Fridays.

    Cons

    Hours, repetitive, starts at somewhat low compensation. You're making 100-150 calls a day as a bdr. Nothing worth having is easily achieved. Deal with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose the whimsy as the revenue skyrockets.

    Pros

    The environment, training, and acclimation is supportive to new low level employees who are just starting their careers. The opportunities for growth are good and those who make it more than a year are doing well.

    Cons

    However, as an entry level employee long hours and high expectations are not properly rewarded. The promotions are all based on how much you sell and quite hard to achieve because the product is relatively inexpensive and deals are small. You must effectively pay off your entire year salary with deals before you get promoted, with a slight base increase. Those who do not achieve this within a year typically leave or get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hourly requirements over 40 hours a week with no overtime pay is questionable if proved that it's a requirement.

    I worked at ZeroTurnaround full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As ZT was in true startup mode, exposure to many different sales processes, operations, and growing pains provided an excellent opportunity to learn a lot about the business world in a short time, especially for someone just entering the work force. A supportive team of employees around you made you feel like you contributed and were a valued member of the team. Great product(s) with great support. As overused as the expression is, a work-hard play-hard mentality is employed everyday.

    Cons

    As a startup, the hours tended to be very long which made it very difficult for anyone living outside the city to maintain any sort of work/life balance. With a lot of young employees there was a lot of unnecessary drama, making things feel a bit like High School politics at times.

    Pros

    The office is filled with great people, contributing to the amazing company culture. All employees are open to helping others and even as a new employee it is easy to feel welcome right away. The energy throughout the company is high and senior management is awesome in encouraging all employees to continue working hard throughout the day. The company offers employees an extraordinary opportunity for growth and it is clear management wants to see everyone succeed. Each employee is part of a small team of about six people which allows for great collaboration. I will definitely recommend this job to others who are looking for a sales position.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is the long hours, however that is something that typically comes with a sales job and the day still goes by very fast.

    Pros

    Unbelievable growth potential. If you work hard, you can realistically triple your pay within a year.

    Great team. People routinely hang out after work even after working a long day. There are regular company-sponsored parties, happy hours, a beer fridge, team lunch every Friday, and a ping pong table in the game room.

    You will learn skills in your first few months that will help you throughout your entire career.

    Cons

    The job is difficult and stressful. If you aren't prepared to put in long hours and make a lot of cold calls, this job isn't for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My only advice to upper management is to make sure the company culture doesn't get lost with rapid growth.

    Entry level sales position in a great environment with plenty of room to grow

    Pros

    This is exactly what I was looking for in an entry level sales position. I came in with no sales experience and have been able to see myself grow much faster than I could have expected. The environment is fast based and always interesting. It is great how the teams are set up, it feels like a small family. The company has grown extremely fast as a whole which is always a good sign for things to come. I would, and have recommended this job to others.

    Cons

    This job isn't for everyone, especially people who don't like to get into the office early in the morning. Everyones in the office and ready to go by 7:30.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to see us continue the same small company feel for as long as possible. Not an easy task with so much expansion.

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity for growth/promotion - and quickly, with lots of contests/incentives especially for the newer employees. Management very easy to talk to and share ideas with, from team leads to CEO. Fun atmosphere where success is recognized all the time. Coworkers regularly hang out after work hours - even after spending 50-55+ hours/week with the same people. Standard benefits, with extra perks like a beer fridge, happy hours, cornhole/ping pong, etc.

    Cons

    It's not for everyone - long hours, and can be stressful if you're not doing well. If you can't handle making sales calls, don't take a sales job. If you don't like listening to music, stepping up to challenges, being recognized for your work and recognizing others', go somewhere else.

    Pros

    Young and driven but being worn down.

    Cons

    Management is secretive and impulsive, and the workplace is very political for a small company. Also expected to make sales calls every day in loud music and nothing else. Not sure how this job is going to help me and anyone else progress.
