    Business Outlook

    Pros

    If you are new to sales, you might learn something

    Cons

    I truly had the worst year of my life at this company. First of all, there is no work life balance (the other comemnts were true). People actually nudged me to ask a colleague work stuff even though she was out sick. Secondly, management is terrible. There is no transparency when it comes to your own interests and people who stay at the company for longer than 5 years just do whatever they want and will fight over deals/leads. Thirdly, they even demote people without full transparency and will screw over your wage. Do not trust whatever they said they would offer during the offer call. I never even got the full payment.
