Double Standards
Sales Development Representative (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 17, 2016
Sales Development Representative (SDR) role is pretty easy in and of itself. The software has a good reputation and clients like it a lot. The SDR is selling the software to HR professionals, who are usually very nice people to speak with. The problem with the job is that the tenured employees who have been here for many years are allowed to call warm inbound marketing leads almost exclusively. Employees less than a year aren't allowed to call the warm leads. We have to research and enter cold leads, which is fine. But the problem is that it's so tremendously time consuming and have a lower close ratio than warm inbound leads. So it's very difficult to come near your quota. It's rare for most newer employees to get enough scheduled meetings to qualify for the bonus. So make sure you are alright with the base pay. Also, be prepared to work like a machine trying to cultivate and call enough leads to set enough meetings. The calls are easy and talking about the software is cool, but time management is extremely challenging and stressful.
Pros
Pretty office in nice part of city. People are very nice. Good software.
Cons
Sales Managers' double standards are discouraging.

Fun startup company with great team
Software Engineer/Web Application Specialist (Former Employee) –  Winston-Salem, NCSeptember 30, 2013
This business is a web based software company for HR solutions.
The company culture was relaxed, and had great work/life balance. The co-workers were always helpful to each other to complete tasks for various iterations of projects.

The best part of this company is the room for new innovation and ideas. These ideas were welcomed warmly from the technical team and clients.
Pros
work life balance. good for ones with families.
