    I have been working at DataFile Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    DataFile is a quickly growing company, which is great if you want the opportunity to not remain stagnant and to truly grow personally and professionally -- though it doesn't come easily. There is a lot of of hard work that goes into it, but I'm lucky enough to have created my own opportunities by putting in the time and work and voicing what my goals were. DataFile is the type of place you can have your voice heard or...

    Cons

    It's a growing company -- there are growing pains.

    Pros

    Decent starting base salary (hearing they are going to lower this) Most employees are great people and fun (made a few life time friends)

    Cons

    COO / CMO is disengaged, not realistic, micro-manager, plays favorites and for some reason runs the sales team. Motivates by threatening instead of encouraging the sales reps.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a leadership consultant. Put your ego aside. Learn the healthcare sales industry. Care about YOUR people. Listen to your employees. Be decent and caring. Learn to motivate through bonuses and make work fun. It doesn't have to be as miserable there as you are making it.
