    Pros

    This is a great place to really own your own territory. All of the tools and resources are provided for your success. As long as you can allocate these resources and pull in Engineers and other AE's when needed, you will be successful.

    Work/Life balance is excellent. As long as you give it 100%, you can leave by 5 PM every day.

    Cons

    There are about 3,000 products.
    Very hard to use certain internal systems.
    If you are not technical, you MUST understand business drivers or you will sink fast.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more one on one time with new hires.

    Pros

    Through the downturn in the economy had my best years in earnings. Ability to work in a flexible wfh and office environment. Opportunity to work with people with significantly different experiences to help me grow my skills. Ability to contribute across business lines like a small company while still working for a big company

    Cons

    takes a long time to remove bad managers, Finance/accounting has too much say/internal systems are challenging to work with and need to be improved to facilitate sales

    Advice to Management

    Value customer and contact relationships more then geographic lines, show your top performers in revenue you value them as much as the performers who out perform quota by the percentage over quota, improve marketing efforts to return our brand value

    Pros

    Great technical company, with many service offerings, and eager to jump into new markets.

    Cons

    Compensation structure, mainly within bonuses, could be better. Salaries are very competitive and good overall.

    Advice to Management

    A lot more can be done to improve retention throughout the organization. Many folks have recently left due to different reasons. It would improve morale overall if there was a sense of stability throughout the organization.
