Pros: training and development, youthful/energetic atmosphere, growing company
Cons: somewhat revolving door style to sales group.
Carousel has been in business for 20 years and sustains an average of 30% growth every year since. They are a industry leader in telecommunications and IT integration having several Fortune 500 clients. As an associate sales representative I learned many IT concepts as well as pricing strategies to compete within a very demanding and competitive industry. Here I honed skills in financial statements, project management, marketing strategies and market research. The most enjoyable aspect of this position was the training and development provided as every session was done with the team as a whole.
The hardest part of the job was cold calling and finding ways to develop rapport with high level executives in companies across several industries.
