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

Pros

Market leading compensation rates - realistic top tier was around 15% commission (on $500k+ worth of deals in a single Q).

Cons

No sales support, awful CRM, management and sales reps treated as commodities. Churn and burn environment. NO account ownership - every account is up for grabs, and you'd spend 1/2 your time or more fending off other reps trying to sell the same product to your accounts - potentially from across the country.

Advice to Management

Enable sales, don't treat them like useless mindless monkeys.
