    Awesome place to develop you basic fundamentals as a salesperson. Fun environment, people, and truly a place where you can learn a lot. The support from management you have here is truly top notch - if you’re willing to dedicate yourself and work hard here, you can grow your career and skills a lot.

    Cons

    Very micro-managy and management doesn’t like to acknowledge clear issues that impact the job (territories, reasonable client/prospect objections, etc).
