Featured Review

Current Employee - Customer Sales Director

I have been working at SumTotal full-time for less than a year

Pros

Massive recent investment in both product and marketing. Very flexible and rewarding sales pay structure makes it possible for good people to earn really good money. Part of the Skillsoft Group... which provides greater career flexibility. #makeworkmatter

Cons

Just overcoming some latent negativity from when the company wasn't as exciting as it is now.

Advice to Management

Keep investing in product and technology!

I have been working at Skillsoft

Pros

A big, bold company with good vision and a sense of being valued. Mostly transparent and few office politics - everyone is falling over themselves to help each other. There are an almost countless... number of perks - big and small, and some still to come. We are told well in advance of things coming which can lead to complaints that they haven't delivered - but I'm sure there is more to come. Company offering has really improved so I am confident in our products and services. Management are experienced and supportive, and take an interest in development. I honestly don't have any complaints.

Cons

Until recently the office in Camberley was a total dive but significant improvements have been made. In any case, I come to work to do the work, develop, and see my colleagues, not look at the... furniture.

Advice to Management

Communication could be much much better. And when you do run an incentive, make sure you actually tell us who the winner was.
