    Pros

    Friendly employees but hey they don't sign your paycheck. Opportunity to get your foot in the door for an IT hardware company, but is the pain really worth it?

    Cons

    Middle management including the new director is taking steps to cover their own butts due to the high revenue goals that are expected of them. This has led to micro-management of counting phone calls and logging everything.

    It also took years for a minimal improvement in the already extremely extremely low compensation plan. Also expect high goals with very little support to meet those goals with good accounts or training.

    Believe me when I say this, there is absolutely no career growth in the B2B sales department except for management positions which are filled rarely. Expect only lateral moves in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Be more ethical in your approach to meet your supervisor's goals by not putting the burden on your employees. Help every account executive with good leads and not make them have to work for them. Everyone needs a little help here.

    Pros

    The cleaning lady keep our office clean! There a few helpful employees that work there. Everyone else is new and just started due to the high turn over.

    Cons

    Commission scale is constantly changing. There is a lot of cold calling and micro managing. New management brought from ZONES DISTRIBUTION has created a call center environment. Ask questions at your interview.

    Advice to Management

    Let your sales representatives sell. New micro-managing call center business model creates a SAD OFFICE ENVIRONMENT

    I worked at Newegg (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people working here and you can learn things here and there.

    Cons

    Pay is below market value and there is no promotion path, during my time here, I saw the dumbest people on the face of the planet get promoted without doing anything extraordinary, they were good at kissing butt and copying other people's ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Marketplace Management needs to sit down and realize that people are not happy and reorganize to give others an opportunity to grow with the company, stop promoting people that is already at the top and give the little guys at the bottom some love too, what's the point of having so many Senior Directors when their job function is the same as their direct reports?

    I have been working at Newegg full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I would give 5 stars if just talking about the company. It has very good internal system, experienced and talented employees. the package and benefit they provide are good, you can find awesome coworkers in the office and there are a lot of ideas, you get to work with big and great companies as your vendors or suppliers, the management is straight forward and you can try out your own ideas..... if you are green, go try it and you will get more than you expected. if you are looking for a career, then go try it. you will get something but career. Even employees with company for over 10 years can be fired suddenly.

    Cons

    I give 4 stars because the top management team change very often. some of the top managers do not seem like have a big vision but just focus on the small stuff. you will get annoyed when you get challenged on these somethings.

    Advice to Management

    You wont listen anyways.

    Pros

    Good working environment, great co-workers, people helpful, and okay benefits. Not a bad job for entry level first time sales, more of a Account manager job as very difficult to make money even when you hit goals. Get experience and move on to a company that cares and pays its sales team.

    Cons

    No defined Comp plan, goals change mid-quarter, don't know sales goal until quarter is 1/3 to half done, management keeps stating changes to comp plan coming but nothing changes, upper management changes often, and don't expect to get anything having to do with goals, comp plan or how it works in writing.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say! Take care of your employees. People would want to stay long term if you paid fairly!
