Current Employee - Account Executive in Tempe, AZ
Current Employee - Account Executive in Tempe, AZ

Approves of CEO

Pros

- Great work culture - open communication
- Very little micro-management or internal politics
- Experienced, passionate senior management team
- Access to strong sales tools to help optimize prospecting capabilities
- Strong professional services and solution engineering teams (but they need more headcount!)
- Nice benefits; complementary food/drinks/snacks

Cons

- Weak process controls - i.e. order management controlled via archaic home-grown ticket system requiring multiple entries of same data to communicate within different departments
- Limited career growth opportunity outside sales. Wastes a lot of time.
- At times, product team seem disinterested in supporting new emerging sales opportunities that require extra time on their side to scope an appropriate custom solution, slowing the sales cycle.
- Weak marketing support into strategic areas of emerging business focus. Wants to expand reach to Enterprise verticals, but still focuses majority marketing activity on traditional media/entertainment markets.

Advice to Management

Look to increase investments into other areas in the organization (i.e. marketing, order processing/account management controls) as strategic areas of opportunity to help drive business growth and customer retention. Expand brand awareness activities into new emerging markets - especially into Enterprise markets that have a high sales expectation around them.

    Still, better/more organized process needed in many ways.
    Benefits for international employees are not that great.

    Pay more attention to international employees especially in APAC.
    Need to present better pictures on how to stay in the market
