No opinion of CEO

Pros

Benefits were great and work life balance was good.

Cons

The pay was horrific, the movement of accounts made no sense and the managers are comped on team achievement not total number. So they would move accts around to under achieving reps to ensure the "team" hits the number. As an individual contributor this is not a good place for sales people to grow and advance professionally. Great technology - it would be much better if someone w/o a PhD could understand how to use it.

Advice to Management

Pay the comissions due to the reps and stop moving accounts around to "socialize" the number.

    Pros

    1. Great company, great culture, great products.
    2. Realistic expectations
    3. Fantastic people
    4. Company does not answer to Wall Street and does not lay people off for no reason.

    Cons

    1. It is difficult to move upwards in this company because employees stay in their jobs for a long time.
    2. Because the benefits are so good, the pay is lower than competition.
    3. There is nepotism and favoritism in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Some internal turnover and disruption may help to take the company to the next level. Just because an employee has been with the company 20 years does not make them better than someone who has been there 3 or 5 years.
