Got too big. Top heavy.

Sales (Former Employee) San Antonio, TX (US)

ProsLoved my co-workers. Liked the old culture better.

ConsHated the politics and good ol boys club. Buddies got promoted based on being buddies not by their abilities or competence. Never ending restructuring of the sales org, increasing quotas, less leads, fewer accounts Sales leadership incompetence.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo the C levels: Take a close look at your VP and Mid Level management staff and ask yourself are they the right players and how did they get into those positions? Are they bringing game changing leadership and ideas or merely going through the motions. Scrutinize the Q12 management surveys.
Do not accept mediocrity.

VP's and Mid Level managers: Pay attention to your MVP's. Respond to your Q12's with positive change. Cultivate the best from your teams.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
