Pros

Attempted to do the right thing - but the follow through just didn't seem to be there.

Cons

The company lacks effective communication. So often we the sales reps were not informed of major issues and were left looking stupid to the clients.

Advice to Management

Communicate!!!

    Pros

    #1 in it's category. Move has recently been committing to and delivering on promises to execute on a business model that will allow it to stay at the top and even broaden the gap between itself and it's nearest competitor. Internally, Move is adopting a management style that rewards based on planned results. Everyone should know weather they're hitting their mark or not. Performance meetings with Managers shouldn't uncover any surprises with clear expectations.

    Cons

    The threats of a continued decline in business volume still looms.

    Advice to Management

    Mid-sized companies like Move generally require strong business partnerships in order to outlast and outpace the competition. Move's lack of business partners suggests that there's something about the company and/or leadership that appears unattractive or a low ROI. What attracts people to technology is that if you're not losing the competition, you're getting lost in the competition. Be cutting edge. Survival isn't enough... at least not anymore.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - A place to collect a check till the economy gets better
    - Decent benefits
    - Used to be a GREAT company to work for when I first started in 2006.
    - Lower six figures is still possible for sales unless you just don't get it.

    Cons

    - Lack of appreciation for employees. Senior management increases sales quotas and decreases compensation plan simultaneously and could happen up to 2 times annually. Company's overall revenue has increased every year and account executives' pay has substantially decreased every year.
    - HR is biased, protects the managers and is "never" neutral in decision making.
    - A lot of micro-managing. Sales professionals are treated like high school telemarketers. Managers breathe down your neck with threats. Not a place for true sales professionals.
    - Account Executives are forced to move certain products and not what is necessarily best for the customer.
    - Highly stressful.
    - High turnover. Company cannot retain true talent. Managers threaten to fire the entire sales floor and replace them with "new blood".
    - Limited room for growth.
    - Senior management does not lead by example. Managers are not polished. Unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should communicate with the mid level managers and be more involved in the process. Create checks and balances so managers are not in violation of labor laws. Staff human resource department with competent, unbiased people. Overall, show salesforce they are appreciated and reward them appropriately. It is a shame that every single employee is petrified to speak her mind and have to resort to forums like this to anonymously communicate with management in fear of retaliation.
