    Pros

    Worked with some of the best People and Products
    Easy access to Customer Executives
    Able to work from home office

    Cons

    Extensive amount to paperwork and non sales admin work
    Good comp- but-Compensation to hours worked is low - expect 50+ hours
    Areas of Micro Management

    Advice to Management

    Limit amount of "Non Sales" tasks and let Sales be in front of Customers more
    Automate back end systems/processes
    Trust that your Sales reps and managers can do the job they were hired for

    Pros

    Great career opportunities if you work hard and push your profile. Company and Tech Supp growing fast. Plenty of training available and some opportunity to travel.
    Great benefits (paid VHI, life assurance & holidays with excellent employer pension contribution, etc..)

    Cons

    Has become very transactional and is now a call center where the issues we see are getting more and more technical. Workload is high and the office can be very stressful at times. Working late is often required just to stay on top of things.
