I have been working at Market Leader full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Market Leader has a good pay plan and excellent benefits. They are always improving their products and revenue is up at the company. The company has made a difference for generating more income for some real estate agents.

Cons

Cold calling real estate agents is challenging. Many real estate agents cancel product due to poor lead quality resulting in a clawback on the account executive's commission. Egotistical sales management that does not mentor employees.

Advice to Management

Improve your product quality and customer service. Give everyone a fair chance at inbound leads and inbound sales calls - especially the Seattle office. Hire sales managers who can inspire, and truly educate, rather than bully and monitor employees.

    Pros

    Inspirational and goal oriented leaders. Incredible compensation package, a company culture that creates an environment where employees enjoy being at work, and outstanding products/services the lead to success in our customers. Love it here!

    Cons

    I can't think of any downsides other than as in any sales role Inside Sales is never an "easy" job and to be successful in this position persistence and a strong desire to succeed is a must.

    Advice to Management

    Kudos to management you guys are awesome

    Pros

    Decent office location, free coffee and soda....sometimes free lunch.

    Cons

    Cold Calling real estate agents. ALL day. Comp plan is very unfair. New reps have little shot of getting any of the quality leads or call ins. Newer reps typically earn less than half the commission for a new sale as senior reps make for a call in inquiry.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to dedupe. Existing client inquiries should not be sent to random reps to re-assign. Pay more for new sales.
