Sales Executive, Charlottesville, VA - September 19, 2017
I've really enjoyed my time with CoConstruct. The day to day role is a typical inside sales role with all the usual ups and downs. The role is also the best I think it can be made. The product is strong, the company listens to employee/customer feedback, and there's plenty of support. This is also the first sales job I've had where I genuinely feel like comp plan changes are fair and beneficial (If you've worked sales I know that how strange that sounds, but it's the honest truth). The corporate culture is is fantastic. It's the first job I've ever had where they genuinely try to make it a fun work environment. There are games all over the office and company sponsored events almost weekly to promote a positive atmosphere. I also receive considerably better compensation and benefits from CoConstruct than I did at the Fortune 10 company where I worked previously. The day to day work life balance and scheduling flexibility have also been far superior to anything I've experienced previously. As a small and rapidly growing company frequent change is inevitable. I've been impressed with how well the organization has handled their rapid growth, but for someone who doesn't adapt to change well this may not be a good fit. The size of the organization also means that every employee makes a tangible impact so a strong work ethic is a must.
