    Pros

    Great stable company, good salary and pay compensation, great place to work if you have been within a Fortune 500 company.

    Cons

    No work life balance, care more about the numbers to the street than the employees. Lots of competition in this industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The practice of moving accounts around where one sales person takes quota of what has been sold by another sales person is terrible in retaining talent.

    Pros

    Extremely friendly people, awesome culture, very kind and polite people, willing to work with you, train and guide you and ensure that you succeed while the company. Food in cafe is provided at a subsidized rate which is the best thing. I really enjoy working a lot here. So much learning to do...

    Cons

    New budget is provided every 3 months, so you never really know what's coming up next in your job status. but apart from this there could me more, but I am not yet exposed to it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please promote new talent and new people.

    Pros

    Intelligent employees, quiet work environment, always work to do. Multiple consultant companies = pushes employees to do better work. This is clear because most workers take their job seriously.

    Cons

    Personal growth, disconnect between upper management and lower management causes less than perfect quality. Multiple consultant companies = high competition, sometimes counter productive.

    Pros

    Best in class company and products, good mix of teamwork and personal autonomy, leadership is quality with mix of management styles, uncapped earnings if you commit to best practices and focus on activity, ability to help companies with consultative approach.

    Cons

    Some micromanagement, as with any sales role, metrics are biggest focus, hard to move into new positions, base salary is lower than other similar jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider creating an environment with more potential for movement and opportunity throughout departments. By evaluating individual performance, work ethic and strengths, talent would be uncovered.

    Pros

    Not many - work from home so you don't have to deal with incompetent supervisors

    Cons

    Clearly upper management has no understanding of modern work environments or how to innovate. Too busy fixing what's broken instead of building better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run for the gates
