      Sales Support

      Pros

      Great people. Definitely a west coast vibe. A lot of smart and hard working people from around the world. Benefits are great and some positions pay well.

      Cons

      If you are in sales watch out!! You will find yourself working all hours of the day. With zero work life balance. This is expected of you. Impossible to work less than 55 hours a week. If you have a family I would think twice about applying here. I would travel to come back 3 weeks later and see people in their 20’s age as if it was 5 years later.

      Pros

      This position has a lot of earning potential as commission is not capped.

      Cons

      There is no work/life balance. You will find yourself answering emails and working during your own hours to achieve the necessary success
