Boiler Room Sales Organization
Sales Organization (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – October 23, 2015
I've worked around many high intensity inside sales forces. This was the weirdest place I've ever worked. Managers lack any sense of professionalism. Most have no real management experience outside PP and are basically making it up as they go. I was a member of what could be called Mgmt. there. Everything is political and it's like working for a high school click. If you're on the in crowd and selling a ton, you will be ok. Anyone else who wasn't around when they broke ground, doesn't stand a chance. They are growing like crazy, and the inside sales people are VERY well paid. As someone who has seen comp plans from other organizations, theirs is unsustainable. The ridiculous pay and young workforce leads to some huge personalities, and not in a good way. Once a month all the employees are called into a meeting and forced to watch ludicrous bonus checks handed out. Keep in mind that not everyone in the room is in sales, so it lowers moral among employees not on commission or bonus. The thought of making someone from a support role watch as a young punk kid gets a 20K check is not going to make them feel better about their contribution.
High pay for successful sales
Horrible culture and management
