Where do I start? There are no annual quotas given. You'll get a quarterly quota which although is presented as it allows management to adjust to give you a better chance to hit goal seasoned sales people also know it gives them a chance to adjust the numbers so you can't hit your goal either so the company can control how much commissions they're paying. Onboarding/training....be prepared to watch videos all day, have the trainer cut your scheduled training sessions from an hour to 20 minutes, be given 20 tools to use and then told you're migrating away from them, have the onboarding team have you be responsible for setting up your own mock calls/demos/shadowing/intra office learning sessions with other departments. Most everyone is stressed out of their gourds b/c of the micro management. Also, everyone is given the tools to work remotely but don't have the flexibility to do so whenever they want even though remote capabilities is sold to you during the interview process. So, most ppl sit at the office and stair at their computers or online chatting with others in the office about non work related things b/c there are ZERO tools given to cold call and generate new logo business. Also, good luck getting your accounts let alone the correct commissions when you're supposed to get them. I've been in leadership roles in every company I've worked for and managed relationships with teams of people at every stop. Moreover, I've had meetings and presented to senior leadership within each of those companies and taken part in company culture planning and this place by far is the worst I've ever seen. Clueless.
Rat an das Management
Stop using ping pong tables, snacks, lunches, and big bell to celebrate closing a sale to mask the issue that your people don't feel like you actually care for them or are willing to bring out their strengths. Those things are nice to an extent but the reality is that most people don't care about those more than they care about their managers investing time into their development, their leaders knowing something about them and talking to them about other things besides work, and understanding that people don't care about the CEO's vision for the company or turning it into a billion dollar company. Nobody takes a job working for someone else thinking, "Man, I can't wait to make this CEO's vision come true and help the company make billions of dollars while I'm expected to work around the clock to hit unrealistic numbers and sacrifice time with my family in the process for $60K a year!". People want to feel secure that they can come to work each day, earn a nice paycheck through hard work and effort, go home to take care of their families, and enjoy life. Why do people in Senior Leadership think otherwise?? Get a clue that they don't care about you and your vision because you don't take the time to care about them. Why is this such a hard concept to grasp and what steps are you taking to help the people who help you? Outside of your bottom dollar and big visions you are overlooking the people actually making it happen for you outside of cutting a $10 million check to buy a smaller company. Want to keep the business moving forward? Want to hit your goals? The people within your organization are your customers too...put them before your selfish visions to grow your bottom dollar and getting to $100 million will happen naturally and you won't waste so much money with turnover from unhappy empolyees. You're company is a dime a dozen and regarding being in a great situation to take care of your family there are PLENTY of better options. Get over yourself and take care of your people who work their butts off for you.

Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 8 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im März 2019 bei SolarWinds (Morrisville, NC (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).
Let me preface by saying I was given a verbal offer, not a written, so I say I wasn't given an offer...but based on the conversation and what the recruiter said I had no reason not to think I was going to get one....
I was extremely disappointed with this whole experience. After applying only a recruiter contacted me at the end of February to schedule a phone interview. We had it scheduled and he missed it. This should have been my first warning sign. But I was excited about the position...he then called me about 2 weeks after the missed phone interview explaining he was on vacation and couldn't reach out. So we talked and he set me up for an on site interview, the middle of March, with the hiring manager and team. It went great and I left super pumped.
The recruiter then called me 2 days later saying that they wanted to move forward with me and they wanted to gauge my level of interest. A call another 2 days later extended me a verbal offer and I accepted. I was told a written offer "was on the way".
3 days later I get a call saying that a 'crucial HR step' had been skipped and that I needed to phone interview with a VP. So I did that. All went well.
Another week goes by and then again, 'another crucial HR step' got overlooked...I have yet again another phone interview. By this point I'm thinking...something is weird here. That interview went great.
I wait another week and the recruiter texts me and says, as soon as he hears something he will let me know, hopefully by the end of the week. That was at the beginning of April. I have called him twice with no response. I understand in big companies things sometimes happen, but the job posting is still up.
I think it is EXTREMELY unethical to make an actual verbal offer to someone and then ghost them without any explanation. I am not sure if it is the recruiter or if the company is so disorganized they don't know what they are doing. I have also tried to get in touch with HR directly, for some sort of closure - with no luck. No one ever answers the phone and I don't know who I would even need to speak to. Very disappointed with how this went down, I was so excited about the job itself and the team in that department seemed like awesome people who knew what they were doing...unfortunately someone in HR didn't.
