Pros

pays well (if you are one of the 5% who hit quota) and outstanding benefits

Cons

Intimidation style of management. Described as a 'Glen Gary, Glen Ross' sales environment. Turnover at the sales position is extremely high and customers despise how many different sales people they have to work with over the course of a year. Management doesn't value long term customer relationships or long term business, only quarterly 'wins'. Company develops products at a blistering pace, most of which don't work well and sacrifice brand and customer loyalty when customer realizes they made a purchase with low or no return.

Advice to Management

Find an identity and stick with it. President of NA can't articulate who CB is!

    Cons

    1. This position has a lot of activity – high volume of calls, appointments but has very generous comp package for the work we do

    Advice to Management

    Although we have an individual quota, it would be fun to also have a team goal so it gives us something to work towards together.
