    Avantages

    - Some of the best people I have ever worked with. Most peers are helpful and will try to keep you sane from all of the changes that are happening. - 2 week boot camp (training) was world class. Most of the sales training I still use in my current role with a different company. - If you are coming out of school and are looking for experience, this is the place for you. This will look really good on your resume..., so stick around for a year and get out as soon as you can.

    Inconvénients

    Management tells you we are 'building the plane as we fly', well, the plane's running out of runway space and it seems like its not going to be taking off. - Pay- you will only make your base, between 32k to 40k annual, no one makes OTE of 80k. The closest someone got to 80k was 60k, and I think that was 1 person. Salespeople don't come to a company to make a base, they want to make base and commission. -... Targets- ridiculously high targets. Most American programs have targets between 50k to 90k and you have to close at least 110% in 4 days because there will be some revenue that will fall off after presentation week. - Commute- If you're coming in from Toronto, don't bother applying. They are looking to move offices, most likely further west, and you won't be making any commission to offset the commute. Hours- depending on the program you are on, this job is not 9-5 or 8-4. If you are working with a media partner in the UK, you're working UK hours. Turnover- constant turnover, whether forced or not. In 2016 alone, there has been 4 Account Directors, 1 Inside Sales Manager, 18 Inside Sales Executives (14 Inside Sales Executive where fired in 1 day) that have already left the company.

    Conseils à la direction

    Stop trying to scale too fast. Concentrate on the Canadian media market first. There is still a lot of newspapers, out of home, radio, and TV networks that you have not worked with in Canada. Right now, you're trying to scale too fast and think the money is in US programs. There hasn't been one successful US program. ISEs are getting frustrated because they are not getting paid any commission and you will... continue to see high turnover. I understand the long term play is to be the 'trusted advisor of SMBs all over the world' by starting in advertising. Eventually offering not just advertising to SMBs but insurance, cloud computing/data, IT support, but it doesn't seem this will happen if you're not investing in your people. The current model is all wrong. Any feedback you tell management, will be ignored and you'll more then likely be fired even if you're one of the few that hits a target and gets commission paid.
