Current Employee - Inside Sales Associate in Dayton, OH
Current Employee - Inside Sales Associate in Dayton, OH
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Great benefits, great time off (4 weeks), base salary for a sales position with a commission program, leads come to you

Cons

Multiple incentive plan changes (varied commissions over time for same levels of production), goal is split between existing staff members (so if the staff should be 30 and you've got 25 people on the team, everyone is responsible for the missing five people), difficult to actually use your time off

Advice to Management

Minor increases in goals and decreases in pay for certain levels of performance are understandable, but not being able to sustain one incentive plan for a long period of time or fairly increasing goals reduces morale. Professional development is a joke - company acts as if it is important but does not go above and beyond to help you actually "professionally develop" yourself beyond encouraging you to utilize internal webinars or completing your CE credits.

    Pros

    Pay is great for the area. They are flexible with hours if need be. Benefits and retirement plan are great as well.

    Large company, so may take some time to get things moved through chane of command. Also if there is a change in leadership, a reorganization may take place which could result in a loss of jobs.
