Pros

Small family like atmosphere in my department (non-sales). Co-workers at a micro level are very caring and fun to work with. On site health clinic in Tempe.

Cons

Layoffs are rampant, but they do 2 or 3 people at a time to make it less evident. However, the company continues to hire, it's a revolving door.

Advice to Management

Stop overlooking your solid performers. Too much time and $ is put into the top 5% and you are losing your solid performers who have been overlooked. Show some loyalty to your solid performers and stop randomly laying off long tenured employees every time you have a lack luster quarter - we are better than that!

    Pros

    Cut your teeth. Build a solid knowledge base. Practical experiences.

    Cons

    Worst compensation package in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Does excessive dialing everyday nonstop translate into quality research/relationship building. No it does not. Let me leverage a personal relationship to make a sale. Trapped literally in the strangest 125 TAM accounts. Growth; stagnant. Nice.

    Pros

    Specific roles have work from home options.

    They are big on easy wins such as recurring 'take your dog to work day' and 'wear your favorite sports jersey' which helps build morale & enthusiasm for some who care about pets or sports.

    Cons

    Company vision and path is consistently changing, yet they never give anything enough time to work/not work. It's similar to test driving a car, only with a public company. The change results in confusion, no career opportunities (lots of promise, nothing ever on paper), inconsistent salary (especially in commission based roles), and a very strong lack of morale.

    Mid level management has the ability to make/break your role and upper management fully allows this. So depending on your team, you may encounter great flexibility and trust or be micro managed.

    Benefits continue to become worse. They focus on things such as a health center within your office yet medical coverage is poor and has been a deciding factor in some employees leaving the company.

    Work/life balance is non-existent. You are expected to work nights/weekends on a regular basis. Everyone wants to be a team player and step up when needed, but when this becomes the expectation from management you quickly burn out. Also, you aren't ever recognized or rewarded for these efforts and are forced to prioritize yourself, often at the cost of your reputation.

    Advice to Management

    Please focus on the people. Don't just talk, but actually follow through and listen. Yes, we all realize numbers are extremely important but without good people you don't stand a chance at making them. Don't treat people as cogs in a wheel, because they will go elsewhere with a sour taste in their mouth & do well with a competitor. This creates a downward spiral in a business where word of mouth is key.
