Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Enterprise Account Executive

Pros

Culture, Opportunity, People and Vision

Cons

None to share at this time

Current Employee - Senior Account Executive

I have been working at GXS full-time for less than a year

Pros

Fantastic pay compared to competitors Very tenured staff ( both sales support and services) Work-life balance Little to no micro managing Great Sales management in the Southeast Works well with... customers and delivers against service level agreements

Cons

Difficult on boarding process- need to be a self-starter Large quotas Difficult to learn all the roles in the larger organization -- again, you need a self-starter mentality

Advice to Management

Get the teams together more often ( both regions and by division). This will promote cohesiveness. Keep making customers happy and exceed their expectations like we do today.
