    I have been working at GE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Starting with the Inside Sales Team for Global Operations is a start into GE.
    Lots of learning tools for all kinds of skills.

    Cons

    Poor selling of our services.
    Poor communication with our customers, internal partners, business peers.
    Too many reporting tools and different ways to get information.
    Too many business overlaps which cause more confusion.
    Bad Data and marketing strategy are a bad mix.
    Lots of "collaborating" going on with little to no execution afterwards.
    Currently, Inside Sales is more like Sales Support.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better understanding of what your customer's want to accomplish by utilizing our services. Then strategize with them on what that should look like, keep regular meetings with them, establish and maintain an easy way to track success.
