    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, new location, ticket perks, happy hours, ping pong table, great co-workers, meeting with customers to discuss needs, developing solutions. Great experience in technology, solution selling, and customer relationships.

    Cons

    Two individuals on the executive team will make or break your career and have large egos. Good ole' boys club. One particular Director leads with fear and intimidation. Unfortunately, they rule all of the sales department and have a large pull in the decisions of other departments. I went from loving my job and career potential, to hating it. Lots of good people in the company, but a few controlling ones ruin it for many individuals. Stress is also very high as outside sales goals are extremely high and get higher every year. However, a few individuals will get a few lucky breaks during the year to hit their numbers. Systems are extremely old and inefficient. Lots of wrong information.

    Advice to Management

    Do what is right for your employee, not only what will benefit yourself.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to make money. If you do well with constant changes you have a chance of succeeding. The people are great to work with and really look out for each other. If you're a man, you have a great chance to grow into a higher position.

    Cons

    Commission plan is constantly changing so you have to be able to consistently adapt your sales pitch to make the most money possible. Upper management doesn't listen to the needs of their employees and it seems like they are always looking for ways to make it harder for representatives to succeed. Women are treated with as much respect as the men. Upper management has their "bro club".

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees concerns. It seems a lot of managers forgot what it was like to be in our shoes and aren't willing to hear us out on the things we see day to day.
