    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at GlobalData full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good commission rates, decent products, fairly relaxed environment (private side), good location. Good company events (summer & Christmas parties & quarterly awards). Generally good atmosphere in the office. Incentives, games, team nights out etc.

    Cons

    Difficult to move into a senior position. Certain products won't make much money. Some salaries for certain positions are abysmal. Rarely increase annual salary, even if you are a solid performer. KPI driven rather than performance led (public side). Lack of investment in products and delivering less services while wanting more revenue (public side).

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in products. The key to winning repeat business is to show clients that their money is valued, well spent and gives them an experience worth paying for alongside the information and ROI they need to see. Take on board more ideas from your employees that have become well versed in their industry sectors. Give more support on under-performing products. Make salespeople feel like they are valued and stop inundating them with reporting that impacts on their time to make money.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at GlobalData full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Sales Training every week, commission structure once you've sold £4,000 in a month, friendly and vibrant atmosphere (when results are going well). Probation is usually negotiated depending on performance & KPI's

    Cons

    Churn and Burn mentality with three month probation where you need four deals to pass, lots of people in and out the door.
    The product is difficult to get your head round & no training is given on it.
    Offices are poor, no canteen, kettle, microwave. Each desk has past users belongings and rubbish on it.

    Advice to Management

    Product Training
