    I worked at Blue Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The training is tough and so is the job overall. It will take your sales game to another level. So use the company as a stepping stone to your next b2b job, but don't stay there and let them abuse you and stress you to death.

    Cons

    Disgusting level of politics/sexism, employees sleeping with each other etc., all that kinda mess. Rumor mill is always full there. There's more focus on drama than on doing actual work. Very stressful as a sales rep, hounding management with little or poor guidance. All the lies of "unlimited potential". Things are very limited as far as deals and money. Making a deal on their copiers takes a ridiculous amount of...

    Advice to Management

    Quit fraternizing with employees, learn to keep lines separate. Stop acting like you care about reps and their lives when you really don't or can't. Learn how to manage people properly, improve motivators. Just stop selling reps and be honest. Up the base salary if you want to keep anyone who's actually worth it.

    Cons

    With growth comes growing pains. Sometimes people may have to wear more than one hat, however, that allows for an opportunity to new experiences and knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the people who take pride in the mission. Keep pushing this winning culture!

    Thank you for taking the time to address Blue Technologies from a newer employee perspective. We are proud of our “family feel” culture, which can be misinterpreted. When we hire an individual, we are 100% committed to that person’s success and expect the same in return. While we ...

    I have been working at Blue Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Make as much money as you want with uncapped commission and no weekends

    Cons

    Takes a lot of self-motivation

    Advice to Management

    I have worked at this family owned company a little over 6 years. It is a great place to work if you are self driven. Unlimited Commission. Self discipline, and highly motivated company. The ownership is committed to making you successful. Has THE BEST hardware service in the industry. I started out with 0 zero experience and would not be where I am today without the help Blue Technologies had provided for me.

    What a great endorsement for our compensation program and sales training/sales process. However, we agree, it all starts with the individual. One must be disciplined and a self-starter to be successful in sales ANYWHERE – not just at Blue Technologies.
