I worked at Terrapinn full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good remuneration if you are working on good events

Good training of your Guts if you are going in for a sales job.

Cons

Too bad for you if you are not working on good events. You need to be resourceful, a cold call machine and just find money.

They hire fresh grads to write conference agendas and not industry experts.

Advice to Management

You need to invest more in real things rather than the superficial rift-raft

    I have been working at Terrapinn full-time

    Pros

    Commission structure is very good for sales people, you put in what you get. However you will need to prove yourself at the start and will be given some challenging events before you are given premium events.
    Free drinks every Friday as crates of booze ordered for employees every week. Good way to socialise.
    Frequent travel to your events and competitor events.

    Cons

    Micro managed through sales CRM system. Recently introduced Sales Force which is used by upper management to check on all activity.
    pressurised atmosphere to hit sales numbers monthly.

    Advice to Management

    Decide on strategy and stick to it
