    Awesome Culture with Low Pay

    Nov 21, 2022 - National Account Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The culture is so fun, and the sales force is amazing. I have never had a bad boss since being here. Extremely family friendly, and understanding when it comes to needing some flexibility. I work from home or travel, which I really like.

    Cons

    Extremely political atmosphere. Too many office people only care about feelings, while sales cares about moving the business forward. We waste a ton of hours in trainings that are meant for 5 year olds that could be spent selling more beer. Paid lower than most of the industry, but the sales team culture makes up for it for a-lot of people.
