Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Merritt Hawkins full-time

Pros

Great compensation for high performers - up and out culture. If you aren't making $100k after 15 months, pack your bags. Solid territories that have been well marketed.

Cons

Dog-eat-dog environment. Company is known for dangling a carrot and then switching the incentive when it's reached (higher goal with smaller territory). Face time is highly encouraged so people don't take lunches or leave at the end of the day for fear of being perceived as a slacker.

Advice to Management

Focus on client relationships more. Work on employee retention. Bring in individuals without outside experience to show what might be possible.

    I worked at Merritt Hawkins full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    industry leader, growing market, definite need, good training

    Cons

    didnt care about clients once deal was signed, only wanted next sale, created atmosphere of fear, would fire and replace people rather than let them build reputation and trust in territory. numbers were the only thing that mattered.

    Advice to Management

    find the good people and let them stay and build relationships with the clients. clients are tired of the revolving door sales person
