"Sales team review"

Positive Outlook

Pros

Great team dynamic and sales team overall. Good relationship with senior management. Transparent discussion with management made the day to day work a fun place to be

Cons

A lot of turnover in sales staff, lack of professionalism among sales agent. Poor reward in achieving high sales quota, and overall salary was low despite being the best sale representative.

Advice to Management

Give your top employees the opportunity to grow into more meaningful position. Have more engagement of top level management with top sales personnel as they are the blood line of this company.
