No opinion of CEO

I have been working at ADT Security Services full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of freedom
Brief training salary
Decent product training
Continuous sales support.
Small auto allowance
Adt is a Nationwide company so you can transfer just about anywhere you want ( if your at quota )

Cons

Adt has a 100% commission based salary structure. This can be good and bad. Commission only jobs can be lucrative if the individual is motivated and a good salesman. If you consider yourself to be just average at selling you'll probably fall in the the 95% turnover category. Most sales jobs have high turnovers, but ADT by far , has the highest I ever seen or heard of. The average tenure at the company is about three to four months. ( This is when the training pay stops) . ADT offers no PTO for the sales team! So if you want to take off for a week or two , you don't get paid. In order to make 70-80 k you must work about 60-70 hrs per week. Not a great work / family balance.

Advice to Management

Try to show a little more appreciation for front line sales reps.

    I have been working at ADT Security Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay if you are self motivated.

    More training and nurturing from the company itself, not just the sales managers would be great.

    Advice to Management

    My manager's great, but a lot of other managers I haven't heard many great things about.
