    Pros

    Good work life balance. On site cafe, Starbucks, underground parking, on site gym

    Cons

    Upper management makes decisions but never cascades them down. They do the same thing over & over and avoid (or dont see) the real issues. Do not listen to employees and sales to hear what is really going on.
    No employee development or promotions
    No cross-functional communication

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, keep it simple and stop trying to change how to sell every 3 months.

    Pros

    You do have autonomy in creating a sales plan to help you get over quota but you have to hit the call metrics regardless of your success connecting with Clevel or decision makers thru alternative methods even if that means 50 voicemails a day.

    Cons

    Inflexible with remote work from home after they moved their office from the 495 belt to the I95 belt. Average commute times were going up 30-50%.
