Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Great pay, flexible hours, decent benefits, good cafeteria, convenient free parking, health club, good medical department. That about does it.

Cons

Inadequate training, lack of current documentation, clique-ish structure and access to resources, poor control of testing and production environments, significant understaffing.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees as assets, not liabilities. There is a definite lack of structure and procedures need to be clarified and enforced.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The senior members are very knowledgeable and willing to help you advance in your career in sales, and some of the products are the best in the industry

    Cons

    -They expect you to start by selling to your family and friends, and don't provide you with any leads
    - very difficult if you don't have a good network and just got out of school, even though they assure you that you can succeed if you want
    - all commissions: No salary, No guarantees.

    Advice to Management

    don't hire people right out of school; they are set up to fail. Help new employees find clients and take them on appointments with you

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    If you want to make money its possible to do so. If you have any doubts, don't forget that you are in sales.

    Cons

    They don't care how you do it, as long as you bring a check you are the man. Not the way someone can sustain a career in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Please do remember that some people care about the work they do, especially when it is regarding someone's hard-earned dollars.
