    Pros

    FLEXIBLE HOURS AND WORK FROM HOME. Lots of opportunities for growth and options to be involved in a lot of interesting areas.

    Cons

    Wish the benefits let you choose where you wanted your money to go. For example, having a pool of cash for health and wellness that you could use for a gym membership. Salary advancement can be difficult to achieve, but it definitely isn't impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your employees to ensure they're going in the direction they want to. Provide constructive criticisms in areas that need growth and acknowledge what is going well.

    Pros

    Very large company with lots of networking opportunities and professional development . Company is well known, and provides good individual growth and career training. Great work life balance, and employee benefits. There is opportunity to work with great logos, and often your products sell well and have strong market presence. Fantastic opportunity to develop and opens doors for your career.

    Cons

    Experienced lots of changes in roles, account territories, teams, and management in a short period of time. Difficult to receive salary promotions due to bureaucracy. Loss of confidence in senior leadership and lack of role stability. Management can easily make you dispensable, and your salary does not reflect the revenue contributions you make, or your market value. Your leadership collects your paycheck, and... often new hires that you train make a lot more then you.

    Advice to Management

    Make organizational changes based on customer preferences. Make it easier to promote staff, and invest in current employees.
