  1. "Was a good paying job until they decided to cap commissions and micro manage the sales force"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good salary, good benefits, able to work out of your home office and make your own schedule every day. Anyone can sell the restaurant.com marketing program. Simple script to memorize.

    Cons

    No room to grow, capped commissions over time because they were not making as much money year over year as they had envisioned, changed sales structure to micro manage sales force because they wanted them to hit a higher monthly quota, also could not and still cannot compete with with daily deal sites because the business model is the same as it was 10 years ago when the company started. Too many restaurant owners unsatisfied with program after doing it because consumers take advantage of the gift certificates and majority of customers are the kind that the owner does not want at the restaurant anyway. No work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Management is micromanaged and that gets pushed down to the sales reps being micro managed, do not talk about how important work/like balance is and then make the sales reps work harder than they need to because there is no work/life balance to this job unless you hit your goal and pretend to be in the field working. Change the business model to compete with newer more popular competing companies.

    Pros

    Work from home. Manage your own business. Ability to make bonuses.

    Cons

    Everything is numbers driven - hit your quota or you're out.
    All management and owners care about is #'s - sign up as many accounts as you can no matter the quality
    Turn over is very high for sales reps and also for restaurants cancelling on this program.
    Hours expected to work is riduculous for the pay you get - expected to work nights weekends whatever it take to get their numbers.
    Micro manage you to death, hounding you for more numbers, all night and weekend long as well.
    No balance of work and personal life.
    Management cannot take any criticism - it is their way or the highway.
    Program is not sustainable - do not see long term employment for sales positions. All management cares about it making as much money as they can now.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your turn over ratio for sales reps and for customers - something is not working here.
