Pros

Straight-up sales, walk into any business or networking event and find prospects. Enjoy autonomy, transactional sales, flexible hours, build your own business network, health care, decent training, increasingly sophisticated sales tools and infrastructure make this a fairly sticky gig. some smart folks in middle management.

Cons

No base salary. No residuals if not at quota. Less than 25% of sales team makes annual quota in the non-bank-affiliated SBM unit. Soul crushing to be instrumental in the merciless application of metrics mean that the less profitable customer accounts see regular hikes is fees, which erodes te referral base. in effect, the merchant services marketplace enforces a harsh regressive tax on the market; the smaller and more vulnerable the merchant the higher their fees will be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

First stop being so stingy. Implement triple-bottom-line accounting. Recognize that even the business world is a community, and treat employees and customers accordingly.

    Pros

    It is centrally located, has a fast-moving pace, wants to succeed, has an ambitious management team

    Cons

    The management team provides no leadership and direction. There is a lot of confusion as to what is happening since the company was sold by RBS to American venture capitalists. The Americans interfere in the organisation's daily business to the detriment of the company. The senior management team are disingenious, so that it is very likely that the FSA will investigate them soon. Everything is done in a haphazard and disorganised way and employees find it hard to do their jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a business plan - most companies have them so should you. Do not act give incorrect information to your regulator, it will come out in the end like it has done with Barclays, RBS etc. and you will be fined. Ask the Americans to butt out, they only add to the overall confusion of the place
