    I worked at Sterling Commerce full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Culture, Great Sales Support, Strong Technical Team Leads

    Cons

    Applications Revenue Propped Up By Acquisitions Without Overall Strategy Of Solution Footprint Roadmap. Paralyzed Customer Purchasing Decisions and Sales Management Unsure of How to Resolve Sales Team Conflicts with Overlapping Solutions.

    Advice to Management

    I don't envy the decisions that need to be made to get laser focused on how to execute your product strategy, but the sales teams should not be set up to compete with each other for revenue as it is confusing to the customer and can ultimately cost you deals.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sterling Commerce (Dallas, TX) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Completely disorganized. Most of the interviewers didn't even have the courtesy to review my resume before I arrived. Some never saw my resume, so thankfully I came prepared with extra copies.

    Interview Questions

    • Same textbook questions: Why should we hire you? Where do you see yourself five years from now? etc.   1 Answer
