      Pros

      You have the opportunity and leadership to push you to grow professionally and personally. They invest in their people and care about your success.

      Cons

      Turn over can be a burden and morale damper but doors open for others at the same time. We touch a lot of technologies and get exposure to so much that this makes us easy targets for other SaaS companies to poach.

      A very tough sales job with no lead flow whatsoever

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Part of Cisco, companies being acquired to help the product, with promises of integration. Sometimes Cisco can help you get into the account. Nice sales process.

      Cons

      Mostly all existing business, barely any new customers joining. Many reps going quarter to quarter not selling anything, can be a full year. Really long sales cycles, really saturated market. Company overall is shrinking, and did layoffs recently. Company has a huge turnover, sales and sales engineering is a revolving door. Marketing is weak will provide zero leads. Consistent chasing for business, to even get a conversation started. Market is very saturated.
