I worked at Global Resources full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

If you can sell an a/c to an Eskimo, this job may be for you as the pay (commission only) is very good for those who are successful at selling the various service products. The sales managers are helpful and professional and are there for you when you need them (and even when you don't).

Cons

Very little training before sending you out on your own. Though my sales manager was very patient and professional with me at all times, I heard from some of my peers that other sales managers were not so cordial and expected a lot from the get go.

Advice to Management

I think the outside sales people (Sr. Business Analysts) would be more successful with more, in depth training on the products available as well as a week or two "internship" with an experienced sales rep before sending them on the road solo.

    I have been working at Global Resources full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The one & only reason is the ability to actually help the small business owner.

    Cons

    Poor management, horrible travel experiences, delays in compensation & expense reimbursement & management that has no current real world business experience.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up & learn.

    I worked at Global Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Meeting business owners from all different industries throughout the US and learning about their businesses. Traveling to different cities every week.

    Cons

    Training is inadequate. Always rushed to complete assignments and continue to the next. Many weeks felt like I was alone on the road and not part of a team.

    Advice to Management

    Not enough personal communication with supervisor. Almost every call into the office was a 15 minute wait (or longer) on hold. This made me feel like an unimportant cog in the wheel. Need more communication within the team. Conference calls were too few and far between.
