    Pros

    EXPENSES!!

    Some wonderful colleagues

    Pay new hires well

    If you get lucky, commission can be good but it is probably 1 in 50 chance

    No stress other than not making money

    Impossible to be fired

    Good benefits

    Cons

    Where to start ..

    - inexperienced front line managers with zero ability to add value to complex opportunities. Have made so many awful management hires

    - upper management sits in the UK and manage by bullying and fear

    - 2 people smashing their targets and everyone else on 0%

    - give people 20 accounts but want people to have 100 interactions per week. People just make up the stuff to add to crm

    - not a sales job, basically an old school marketing role

    - all the good sales people have left, nobody ever comes back!

    - the atmosphere is toxic as the majority hate the place

    - now bad for your CV

    - so disconnected from what prospects and customers want

    - management treat employees like school children, it is embarrassing

    - going back to the 80s on approach to working. At the desk from 9 to 5.30pm, no working from home etc

    Advice to Management

    Please just pack it in

    Stop hiring dreadful middle and flm managers.

    Such a shame, used to be a great place
