    I worked at Converge full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    if you come from the broker industry there operational values in terms of quality are second to non. Being an Arrow company gives them good access to benefits.

    Cons

    Poor customer account allocation no efforts to help build a sales model for individuals. Poor management in terms of training. Lack of services for customers. Same old school paranoid secret keeping. No sales rep account expansion elevation efforts. Poor work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management with passion for teaching team building. Implement better systems training. Allocate accounts that are not being sold to and encourage longer term employees to release accounts not being booked with.

    I worked at Converge full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    All in all great people to work with with an opportunity for growth and some training. A healthy work environment, holidays and vacation were great, competitive wages.

    Cons

    Some members of management left much to be desired, many were great but there was some toxicity. I understand that manager has since left.

    Advice to Management

    Just because a newly hired manager came from in-house doesn't mean they are a good fit,vey more closely

    Pros

    competitive pay great people poor management. Always enjoyed the sales contests and incentives run monthly large inventory to sell from and attain sales goals

    Cons

    poor middle management high turnover of decent sales people old boys club mentality. If you had been there during the shortages back in 2000 then u missed the boat.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the sales people more. Let them travel to visit customers more. All in all a good place to start a career in sales
