Pros

The training and the benefits are great.
Management is hands on and halpful.

Cons

The company wide quota system expects reps in small markets to hit the same numbers as NYC or Philadelphia. Very unlikely.

Advice to Management

Weight the commissions more evenly with the markets the reps are selling in. I worked NYC, and I worked in Syracuse. Glaring diiference in the size, number of prospects, type of business. I think this issue is known behind the scenes, but would have to be presented carefully.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Commission was decent, a few good people

    Advice to Management

    have management take people skill training. Stop managing sales folks by fear. you lost alot of good people because of this


  2. "Enter at your own risk."

    Pros

    The benefits were OK. They gave a decent amount of vacation time.

    The ability to learn MPLS technology and how to implement it (half-assed).

    You'll be introduced to many technologies. Many of them you'll grow to hate.

    Cons

    No Bonuses. The one year that they did give a bonus, I blew it all away at MC Donald's for a dinner for my family.

    The Offer came in at about 10 - 14 K under Fair Market. You'll have to negotiate just to make fair market pay.

    You are treated like a number, not a human being. There is an expectation for you to get your work done, but not a realization that more employees need to be hired. The department I worked for needs to move more toward silo driven jobs and more accountability for the tier levels. There is no difference between what top tiers and bottom tiers do, expect for PAY! This is a great way to break morale down fairly quick.

    You can easily be overwhelmed with the amount of work. You'll have to work very hard to make up for the individuals who don't do their fair share. Your success depends on their ability to perform, and it's been quite lackluster.

    Management is terrible! Their motto should be " Do as I say, not as I do ". The metrics are based on 1st grade math that do not measure real productivity. They run a real Mickey Mouse operation and you need to join Mickey's Club if you want to get anywhere in the company. Don't make any mistakes, otherwise management will be quick to send you on your way. They will not take a bullet for you. Management has no time for your concerns, as they are to busy finding ways to make 8 hours pass by quickly.

    You can walk on water for years, but that one time they feel you did something wrong, just pack your stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves and hire competent people instead.
