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

    Pros

    It's an exciting time to be at MicroAge as our organization is moving fast with technologies. MicroAge has a culture that feels like family and empowers employee appreciation at every level of the organization. MicroAge was just recognized as a Best Place to Work AGAIN by the Phoenix Business Journal. At most companies, these types of achievements are empty victories that are driven more by PR/upper management and marketing dollars than the employees themselves. But here, it's real, and you see it in the way team members are treated every day. Work life balance is achievable here, while still making a visible difference for customers and partners in the process. Jeff McKeever, our CEO and Chief Founder is authentic, diplomatic and really cares, everyone on the leadership team does. There is some flexibility with working remote.

    Cons

    There aren't many cons, some normal growing pains and occasional silos that come with moving fast in different directions and constantly building out an organization. The team is actively growing and improving together.

  5. "So/so"

    I worked at MicroAge full-time

    Pros

    Autonomy once sales goals are met. Much of upper management is very competent. Great strategic leadership under previous ownership (Mark, son of the founder.)

    Cons

    Company shifted toward micromanaging rather than being strategic as with former President. Doesn't have the resources of larger competitors. Commissions paid at a tiny fraction if your clients aren't prompt with payment. Not a fit for many larger clients.

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

    Pros

    *They give you freedom to work your book of business. *You get treated like an adult, so no managers over your shoulder asking you about your call count, or if you show up 1 minute late. *The executive team generally seems to care about my success. I came from a company in which the C-Level execs really separated themselves from the sales team. Not much interaction. At MicroAge it's hard to see a line of where the C-Level ends and sales begins, because everyone talks to everyone. *There aren't any barriers blocking you from talking to anyone in the company - a true open-door policy. *The sales team is very well trained, has loads of experience and is very professional.

    Cons

    Sometimes the time change is tough to deal with since MicroAge is on MST - you learn how to work around it.

    I worked at MicroAge full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of freedom, come and go as you please, if you are hitting your numbers they leave you alone.

    Cons

    Way to many fees, they pay a draw you pay back from commissions so no salary. Pay a load on all sales which sucks on big revenue deals, they take over half your spiffs after load added, commission take a hit if customer pays late. They call it 50% commission but really in the 30's with load and fees and no salary. Also, way to many useless trainings and monthly meetings that are a waste of time.

    Thank you for your feedback. We understand and appreciate our comp plan is not a good fit for all sales professionals. Our plan is positioned so our Account Executives can manage accounts like it were their business. This requires, for example, setting upfront expectations for their clients to pay invoices timely. It is true, commissions are reduced when payments are delayed beyond 60 days. We find this to be the largest factor where some Account Executives experience commissions less than expectations. In regard to training and monthly meetings, we very much believe in a culture of employee enrichment, self-improvement and communication. We would not be a good fit for those that prefer to work without such training and communication. Thanks again for taking the time to post your thoughts.
