I have mixed emotions when I think about my time at StreamLink. I feel overall the company is a good place to work and an excellent place for a new college graduate to get their feet wet in the world of business. If the right people like you you might even be able to grow here.
When I started I saw people who only had a few months experience growing into representative roles and into portions of the business that offered better financial opportunities. I was very hopeful that this would be me someday. Management was awesome and the CEO was approachable and right there in the building. I had a little growing pains as the first quarter I did not make my goals to bonus. After that I was on the right track my number trended upward and I achieved bonuses. I was roughly six months in and based on what I saw with the others I thought I had accomplished what was needed to start my growth process in the organization. The first job I applied for was in the public sector. The interview process started out as fair. My competition for the position was a co-worker whom started the same time as I did and was a new graduate. I myself thought I would be a great candidate seeing as how since we started my numbers were slightly better and I have almost two decades of sales experience. It was not to be. I was told that I was "not as polished" as my associate which I without question after 15+ years in Sales world took offense to. I am happy for my co-worker but I never believed that's the real reason I did not get the promotion. My tenure at StreamLink was never the same. The last months were littered with me attempting to grow and them telling me they "needed to see more". I finally left citing the inability to move upward as the reason. It may be wrong it may be right but I feel like I was blacklisted. A person who helped me get the job left her position with the company to go to a competitor. a situation management was very paranoid about, employees were even forced to unfriend her on social media a request I followed immediately because I liked my job. I sometimes wonder if I was blacklisted because she got me into the company. Until the end my work ethic was very good there, but it came to a point I felt like I wasn't wanted.
If you've made it this far I would say this is a good place to work in general and start your career. If you are already seasoned in sales perhaps there are places that will consider your experience more valuable. The people are all pretty cool that you will work with. I am not really sure why my situation turned out like it did. I'd say give it a shot.
