    Pros

    Career opportunities are incredible, you can be promoted every two years, travel to different office locations. Salaries are uncapped so you can double your fix part, and even triple it if you have a good year. The company continuously invest on you through training, improvement feedbacks, career opportunities - one of the best sales school worldwide!

    Cons

    Stressful environment - as every sales job The offer is intangible and therefore difficult to sell compared to software - this is definitely not a job for people who don't like to work hard and to be challenged!

      Pros

      This is specific to Software Advice, a property of Gartner. I can't speak to Gartner at large. Never before have I worked for a company that made such an effort to make sure I felt appreciated and heard. Employees are encouraged to speak up with ideas about things that could be done differently or better, and often those ideas are implemented. One of the core duties for managers is to support their employees' career...

      Cons

      This is not a company for the faint of heart. Everyone who works here is incredibly driven to do their job and do it well. This can mean that employees feel they have to overwork themselves just to keep up. YMMV whether this is a good or bad quality.

      Pros

      Modern culture, flexible work environment, great facilities and amenities at work (gym, chefs, pool tables, etc) You will get a lot of education and exposure with working with enterprise size clients and C-Level executives.

      Cons

      Huge problem developing people. Academy is a process that is 2+ months long. After going through many interviews, flying around the country, and going through 2+ months of training's, you still might not be a good fit. A lot of people move just for this job, and they do not even know if they will make it through training and a lot of people don't. Management is a problem, be careful of the bait and switch. In...

      Advice to Management

      Invest in your people. If you get them through all of the interviews, the academy, and up on the floor make sure you are putting leaders in place to develop and retain talent.

Have the VP's hold team meetings, at least...
