    Advice to Management

    Implement the technology you sell and make it a priority. Stop looking at base salary for sales reps as a cost and start valuing their ability to represent you in front of your customers and the communities they sell in.

    Pros

    Nice big parking lot office is nicely decorated

    Cons

    Lot, in my own words you get a job offer in writing, then they demand your certification numbers. if you dont provide they revoke the offer.

    Advice to Management

    STOP Baiting and switching. you gave me an offer letter then when I refused to give you my MCSE number you revoked the offer.

    Thank you for your review. Unfortunately, in certain positions, especially technical roles, certifications are required per contract language with multiple parties. If the job requires the certification, we will need verified proof of current status.
