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

    Pros

    Great compensation plan, Terrific technology your prospects WANT to purchase.

    Cons

    At the time, the territories would change every quarter. This did encourage quick closure, and the thought was "win some/lose some" with deals that were then sent over to the new rep. Sadly, I lost more than I won (like to think it was because I teed more up than most). I did not like the lack of ongoing customer relationships.

    Pros

    It is a simple model. Download leads come in, develop pipeline, and work to close your opps down. Rinse and repeat.

    Cons

    Some people are surprised when they can't make it work doing it their way. The pace is fast and there is not a lot of margin for going against the model.
