    Pros

    Nice product set that allows the rep to make a difference for the clients. I like the way the comm. are paid and the residuals. Good incentives, like the company get togethers and work/life balance.

    Cons

    I guess like all sales roles, you get a good deal of rejection, it can be hard to stick to the "plan", but for me, I was and am able to stick to it, and it get me in the doors i need to.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the good stuff up.

    I worked at WCI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits package, enjoyable coworkers and nice location.

    Cons

    Lack of available information and a feeling of elitism from some where they are amatuers in the field they "specialize" in. Serious lack of organization cross departmentally where one department manager tells an employee to send requests to another department a certain way and then that department manager comes directly to the submitter to give them a hard time about the request. Nearly no growth internally in a place that claims to be "home grown" but in reality they just use temp outsourced help for simple changes to their internal systems.

    Advice to Management

    get some structure and build some training. I was in the process of doing that before I was unexpectedly fired for a mistake that my direct manager was the one guiding me on.


  3. "An excellent platform for success that requires hard, honest sales work."

    Pros

    WCI Sales leadership promotes a constructive environment that reflects the consultative approach of its team members. Managers are very clear about their work expectations (i.e. call numbers, hours worked) and are supportive of salespeople who come by those production levels honestly. There is no commission cap, and the product has meaningful differentiators. Thus, for those willing to do the work, this position represents a lucrative opportunity.

    Cons

    The cold calling can take some getting used to. Additionally, the long term sales process (at least compared to that of some competitors) can create frustration, particularly before a full pipeline is developed. Both of these issues become less problematic after months of hard work.

    Pros

    Profitable growing company.
    Management that is involved and engaged.
    Fast paced environment.
    Good pay.
    If you meet your goals good growth potential.
    High percentage of tenured employees.

    Cons

    Broad product mix can be hard to grasp.
    Accountability to monthly numbers is firm.
    Name recognition in the industry is lower than the larger companies.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to present clear expectations and stay true to your commitments to your employees. Having a specific plan for growth only works when both parties know the expectations of the other.

    Pros

    Good salary and commission, beautiful location.

    Cons

    Horrible product, no niche market, awful management (except the owners, they were ok - which blew my mind as to how they could hire such... people). You are treated like a number, which is driven into you in the most repetitive form EVER. Plan to be on the phones and monitored all day long - even though they tell you that isn't the case. Turnover rate is astounding, you will be embarrassed to put this on your resume.

    Advice to Management

    Change the product, determine your niche, don't sell before you can deliver, don't expect your sales agents to beg for sales in dirty fashions.

    Pros

    Great job for someone looking for an entry level sales position in a highly competitive industry. Average pay if you can make it through your first 60 days there.
    Fast pace industry, interesting products and services.

    Cons

    The most micro-managed sales environment I've ever come across.

    Extremely high turnover due to limited training/onboarding and proper development.
    Low employee morale associated with poor financial results, scaling back of benefits, and revolving door resource mentality.
    Limited direct meaningful feedback and non existent long term career growth path.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down listen. Put more effort into hiring the right people. Less effort into pushing people with no training.

    Good company with a great foundation. Strong leadership team and good hours. I liked my time here.

    Cons

    Management did not work hard. Many meetings but not much got done. Bad food in the cafeteria. Seats were uncomfortable.
