    Former Employee - National Account Manager in New York, NY
    Former Employee - National Account Manager in New York, NY
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    If you can hit outlandish quotas, the pay is stellar
    If you were/are field-based, great flexibility
    Great opportunities to learn, grow & hone skills

    Cons

    Honestly the worst, most-incompetent sr. sales managers I've ever worked for
    True big brother, rule by fear mentality
    Sal Iannuzzi has run this ship into the ground
    Sales Managers should remove the word "sales" from their title, because they can't
    In the past 24 mos. this company has hemorrhaged some of the best sales talent around, and it shows
    Completely irrelevant today, and it's not going to get better

    Advice to Management

    Watch your back, never know when it'll come around to bite you
    To a certain RVP in the East, get your head out of your @$$

    "Disappointing - no clear direction or strategy from upper management"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Maynard, MA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Maynard, MA
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great work/life balance if you are good at drawing a line in the sand
    Decent benefits and time off
    Super friendly people - great co-workers
    Autonomy

    Cons

    No strategy or direction coming from upper management - strategy seems to be try everything and see if it sticks. Unfortunately, most things do not.
    No focus on clear goals for projects
    Little to no iterating on projects - oftentimes leaving projects half finished and available to the public
    Antiquated business model - competitors are beating them badly with no strategy as to how it could be addressed
    Lots of politics and favorites - very much a "boys club"

    Advice to Management

    Get involved! Talk to your people - they are really smart and have great ideas. Hands-off laissez-faire management is not a way to run a business or promote career development for your employees.
