Pros

Great people, great atmosphere and they foster growth. Great compensation plan for a true salesperson. A lot of people build a career and stay a long time with the company.

Cons

One of the lowest base salaries in the industry. Not always the best managers- so a person MUST be self-motivated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep a close eye on your mid-level managers. They tend to get stagnant.

    Pros

    Flexibility is huge, as long as you are doing the daily activity-and SELLING, you can pretty much do what works for you. The pay is great when you MEET and EXCEED quota! Also, I think the best part is the relationships and different people you experience, night and day from my last position! Overall, great company, training and resources!!

    Cons

    Not for the timid or the lazy...I think a more cohesive operations/Corporate connect to the Sales side would help, but definitely not a huge issue. Overall if you work hard, you will be rewarded, intriscally and extrinsically.

    Pros

    Nothing was good working here.

    Cons

    - very micromanaged
    - never, ever communication between upper/lower management & employees
    - very political, bias and cliquy
    - horrible pay, advancement was given to those who kissed ass, not who deserved it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get off you high of your position and realize you have other employees below you that do the crap work for you - and treat them each better - pizza for reward? c'mon. you barely pay past min wage and you can't even treat your employees out to a proper lunch or work with them on days off. Maybe, communication isnt having monthly meetings but the pat on the back when they do good or get off their backs and don't micromanage!
