    Pros

    Work hard, play hard team environment. Opportunity to travel and hard work is rewarded. Top sales performers do very well and earnings with 6 figures. Advancement possible as company grows.

    Pros

    -To put it on your resume that you worked for a large corporation (well-known)
    -To gain experience in your field, if you are new to your field of interest
    -To work with co-workers who are friendly and warm
    - To get a regular pay check
    -To get experience in a corporate environment (the good, bad and ugly)
    -To experience a sales-driven corporation
    -To get some of the regular perks large corporations offer, such as event tickets, etc.
    -To see how you stack up against other sales-driven co-workers, if you are ambitious and confident
    -To flex your aggressive, results-driven, mental muscle and focus on results

    Cons

    -If you are not familiar with office politics, you will find yourself a little overwhelmed until you are either exhausted or smarten up
    -Don't expect management to resolve any of your work issues or performance deterrents: you're on your own here
    -As a sales-driven organization, you will soon learn where you stand on the totem pole
    -Management's number one concern is sales: everyone and everything is secondary and expendable
    -Sales execs soon learn they must find their own leads, constantly defend themselves, and not expect any coaching from management
    -Management does not take initiative in training any staff: new staff coached by existing staff or learn as they mature into position
    -Over-time is expected: regular 9-5 is frowned upon - if you're not "sweating", you're not impressing them
    -Family life and quality of life is secondary to this organization
    -Be able to defend yourself and your performance in any position within this organization.
    -Management style is "divide and conquer". Team mentality is discouraged
    -Bullying is common tactic for upper management

    Advice to Management

    -Retain employees by considering them as individuals and what would retain them in your organization. Do you really want to keep training people repeatedly due to high turnover rate and disgruntled staff?
    -Consider initiating quarterly employee surveys and/or anonymous "suggestion box"
    -Hire more support staff to relieve AE's and create greater productivity, hence more revenue
    -Invest in your greatest resource: humans (nurturing, providing resources, retaining, hiring)
    -Create a real HR department to address employee needs and relieve other departments
