        pay is good if you are hitting quota. good benefits like free health, dental, and vision!


        The culture is ok.. the managers are up your butt. i have never had someone micro manage my every move so much. no one likes their managers here. also, the team leads are annoying, too. so not only do you have your manager up your butt, you have team leads up there also. Also beware that you will be put on a pip QUICK. you really only get like 3-4 months and then you are put on one... what company doesn't give their employees time to grow in a role. this is selling a very niche product. this place is good if you are doing good. I would suggest starting in the inbound role, learning the product, and then moving into the outbound role. I got accounts that had been worked and were old....

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      6 interview rounds and halfway through. How many times does someone have to answer “so tell me about yourself” does it take to get an offer. Beginning to become exhausting. Tips on remaining enthusiastic through multiple round interviews would be helpful.
