Current Employee - Sales Representative in Boston, MA
Current Employee - Sales Representative in Boston, MA
Approves of CEO

Pros

As a sales rep, you get a lot of freedom to come and go as you please. Great earning potentials based on commission structure.

Cons

Protected territories mean nothing to upper management. They are just interested in getting the sale as opposed to having integrity. It is also tough to get into the doors of a lot of company as there is a pretty high rate of loyalty amongst potential clients towards their current vendors. Managers tend to make most of the money working off of referrals.
