Overarching focus on mission
Sr leadership laser like focus on growth, organically and via acquisitions
Brilliant colleagues who are achievement-oriented

Cons

90 day quarterly focus can "burn people out"

Prioritize efforts to enhance career growth / opportunities in other non-sales but Customer facing organizations (ex. services)

    Pros

    Talented management teams, in the enterprise space, Top notch sales professionals, strong continuing education, great career advancement.

    Cons

    While portfolio is a plus, sometimes it is such a big organization (family of companies), it is difficult to align the strategy between business units. A bit of arrogance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, but be humble about it. Ensure the technologies are correctly aligned with one another.

    Pros

    Good direction for the company and good leadership. Very good benefits package and work life balance. Flexible hours and ability to work from home if needed.

    Cons

    Many management positions have been held by the same groups of people and the compnay just moves around job roles every couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the path and focus but be aware that many organizations do not get the support they need for day to day activities. Hiring process takes way too long even for moving to new oppotunities within the company.
