Can be a great opportunity but ask questions
Senior Account Executive (Current Employee) – St. Louis – November 27, 2012
Overall a decent place to work, just be sure to ask a lot of questions about the history of the position and the specific territory you are interviewing for if in sales. If it is a newer market, just know it will take 2 yrs to establish such an unknown company in that territory. If more than 2 yrs, I would want to know why the previous person left the position and what that process looked like. There is no structured training program for your on-boarding and managers aren't much help in developing you.
A positive is that SEI saves customers money without sacrificing on service and in the current economy, that is a big plus. A big negative is that you will often submit equipment for pricing and have it denied.
A major concern is that there have been a lot of developments in the IT Industry that are affecting the core of SEI's business negatively.... be sure to have an understanding of how virtualization and 'cloud' developments are affecting their business and your potential customers.
Overall, I believe the company will make the necessary adjustments to succeed but it remains to be seen what those details will look like.
training, virtualization is affecting core business
