    Pros

    The company has undergone an transformation as the IT Channel evolves and so far has managed to stay on the wave and not sunk. The geographical spread offers a lot of prospects to relocate and they also like to promote from within which is good for careers prospects.

    Cons

    Some middle managers can make the work life very difficult. The company is trying to become a solutions provider but is stuck in the box shifter mentality and this leads to internal conflict between hitting targets by just smashing out KPI's and actually doing what clients value/need/want and what actually makes profit and long term returns. Also, very process based methods for internal communications and work and can lead to long SLA's and bad internal client satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce red tape, create smaller more dynamic 'sales' teams to be more agile and customer focused.

    Pros

    Good management team, Achievable targets and Australia/NZ had the ability to work that was autonomous to the ROW. No phone bashing and very strategic and intelligent selling.

    Cons

    Lack of progression opportunity. It was quite hard to earn good commission in the SMB team.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture as it was in 2010/2011. I had great fun working the the Brookvale office in Sydney during my time in Australia.

    Pros

    Good training, Excellent Infrastructure and Resources, Nice Peers

    Cons

    Bad Management and Directorship. Unrealistic Targets, No buzz on the trading floor

    Advice to Management

    Don't reward over achievers by inflating their targets, as this is counter productive.

    Pros

    Best people in the world to work with. The most common thing I heard there is that the employees are the main reason for working there, and I agree. Bonuses can make up for lower salary.

    Cons

    The pay is less when you work your way up the ladder internally. Coming in from the outside the pay looks better.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a path and stay on it.

    Pros

    Atmosphere is very open and free-going. Management although maintains high metrics allows you to manage your growth of business on your own terms.

    Cons

    Recent partner changes weaken the foundation of the Account Executive Position. Focus really needs to be on the partner support that we rely on to garnish relationships with clients.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on support that can strengthen the Account Executives

    Pros

    The opportunity to donate a few dollars from each paycheck to help support coworkers in need is a great idea that I wish more companies would institute.

    Cons

    It's chaos. Disorganization, poor leadership, no training/on-boarding, little to no professional growth opportunities, and a failure to keep up with best practices is threatening to make the company irrelevant.
