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

    Pros

    Good people to work with

    Cons

    Everything else
    I worked there for two weeks and was never paid a dime.All your leads are basically cold calls you might make 150 calls a day and get one sale and commisions on sales are a joke. You are over worked and under paid if your paid at all only gave them one star in my review because it wouldnt let me give them zero.

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

    Pros

    Great products, great people, centrally located, lots of opportunity to do some cool things; cool brand with lots of legs.

    Cons

    Short-sighted, poorly managed, work is at a frenetic pace, difficulty shifting from reactive to proactive, big gaps in data, business processes not documented, still acts like a startup even though it's 20 years old, very slow to bring new products to market to stay competitive, sales-led organization without accountability (read: sales people do not consistently use CRM to accurately record what’s going on in the pipeline, and don’t adhere to business rules supposedly in place), wants to dominate the marketplace without investing the amount of dollars required to do so. Averse to hiring and retaining people; no dedicated HR department.

    Advice to Management

    - Fill gaps in the data.
    - Hire a full-time data analyst to do a comprehensive deep dive to define your goals, opportunities, and investments to drive to your forecast across the business.
    - Set goals based upon the analysis.

    In that order. Then:

    - Invest in the Channel - Delight your Channel partners, they are your key to growth and market domination – recruit them, delight them, invest in them, and they will move your products. Your competitors are nipping at your heels, and if they figure out how to delight their Channel partners before you do, Xplore will have a significant challenge on its hands that will make it difficult to compete

    - Invest in market research to understand what your target market wants – then build it, and build it quickly. . Your competitors are already investing more marketing dollars and in market research and are telling a better story than Xplore, as well as delivering products quicker. They are using their data to their advantage.

    - Invest in the brand. Marketing is how people learn about you, and if they don’t know about you they don’t know to look for you. They may not even know they need what you have to offer. Your data should inform where and how you should spend your marketing dollars to meet your goals, but again, you must invest in data analysis to get this answer. Listen to what your marketing leaders are telling you – your CMO is the smartest guy in the room and he’s damned good at what he does, if you just let him do it, and give him the resources to do so.

    I have been working at Xplore full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Management does not micromanage. You have the ability to provide input to management. Casual work environment.

    Cons

    Management is only focused on revenue. They don't reward employees for hard work. It's just expected that individuals pick up the slack for others. Raises, Bonuses are few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    Good companies become great companies because they take care of the little people that get the there.

    Pros

    Can't come up with anything good to say. Guess the only thing is their acquisition of Motion in a fire sale.

    Cons

    Sr. Management only cares about how much money they make and their extravagant trips.
