You can truly learn how to be a business professional. But, you can also learn to be the exact opposite. Enjoy your time but know its not permanent. Its a stepping stone.

Working in sales right out of college
Inside Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXApril 22, 2018
A typical day at work depends on what your customers need. For the first 3 or so months, you are working to establish a secure book of business. This takes time to sort out companies that you don't want to work with, and companies that don't have the budget to work with you. After that, it's all hard work from then on out. You grind constantly to make what you can. Some days you walk away with a few thousand extra dollars in your pocket, and some days you go home empty handed. It's a difficult job to say the least, but the atmosphere makes up for it. The people you are surrounded with are competitive, outgoing and friendly. They are all recent graduates, so everyone is basically your age.

I understood systems that I didn't know before to complete my job, I built relationships with companies that I either worked with, or just talked with. I learned that sales is extremely difficult, but can pay off if you have a good month.

Management is INCREDIBLE. There is nothing wrong with these people. They are not there to micromanage, but only to help. They get paid based off of what you make, so they want to support you in any way they possibly can. I have never had a bad experience with any individual in a management position. They are caring, and willing to put in the time it takes for you to improve.

Workplace culture is great. Again, it's a bunch of 20-something year old's running the place. We all have a great time in a relaxed atmosphere, and help each other when needed. Everyone also enjoys happy hours on a weekly basis, so if your into that, this is the place to work!
  more...

The hardest part of the job was knowing that no matter how hard you grind, you might end up walking away with little or no commission check at the end of the month. Salaries are all the same, but your book of business really determines your overall compensation.

The most enjoyable part of the job is bonding with others your age throughout Austin. Most people I know work at a company with older adults who have families and want to go home after work. Here, we are all young, so going out to the park or heading to a local watering hole is what this company's after hours is about.

Pros
Free lunches from vendors, no micromanagement, great management, team off sites, enjoyable community.
Cons
Unstable salary, same daily mundane tasks, constantly jumping through hoops to meet customer's needs.

Lots of opportunity, interesting culture.
Senior Inside Sales Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXMarch 21, 2018
You will learn a lot. You will face many challenges. You will have the opportunity to rise or fail to those challenges. You will make lots of money. You won't have time to spend it or take any long vacations. Eventually the stress will get to you and you will find another job.
Pros
Free food, lots of events
Cons
No time to appreciate anything because of how hard you will work.

Think long and hard before joining
Inside Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Somerset, NJMarch 16, 2018
Best way I can describe the company is "Big Brother is watching." they are always watching you. they time you on everything. they complain about every nuance of your job, including emails, how you sit, if you have to answer your cell phone, bathroom etc. they pay way below industry standards and its commission based. instead of a typical 8 hour work day, its a 9 hour work day. They train you but if you don't have previous experience in sales you'll flounder. Don't bother asking questions too. they will answer your question with a question
Pros
Heath, dental, 401K, lunch
Cons
too much overwatch

Inside Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXFebruary 19, 2018
It all depends on your account list you get from your district sales manager. They have an ideal client set but most of the accounts given to you aren't the ideal accounts they want you working. It's a very slow process to get ramped up and you won't see real money for a year or two.
Pros
Free lunches

Great place to work, lack of leadership and motivation
Configuration Specialist (Former Employee) –  Piscataway, NJFebruary 12, 2018
You add the hardware and install the imaging on the computers. The manager is there to help but there is no leadership. You feel like you are in a prison and taking orders from the company. Also, the Summit is a pain. There is no encouragement or motivations. It's not an ideal place to work. The managers has some favors but they need to be equal to all of us. Pay is very low. Also, the company doesn't pays attenton to the employees. They only care about is their customers. You will have no support from the company. They will turn your back on you and you will have no moral support to do the job right.
Pros
Working as a team, learning new technology
Cons
Poor managers, no leadership, no motivation, always watch you like a hawk, the manager critcize you on the mistakes. No encouragement.Pay is not afforable for life.
