    I have been working at IQPC full-time

    Pros

    Overall I would recommend this job to anyone looking to break into or expand their sales careers, here are the pros:

    -Sales Training is top notch. You are fully prepared to do your job and can take these skills with you anywhere your career path leads you
    -Uncapped commission means the more you sell the more you make and can even travel around the U.S. to events which is cool
    -If this is your first job straight out of college it can be a great crash course into the business world and cultivating relationships with other organizations and executives from well known companies
    -Opportunity for growth and promotion within the company if you really want it and deserve it
    -If you put in the time and effort to master your craft of the sales process you will do quite well and can make good money
    -Though they could do a little bit more to increase employee engagement, the culture of the office is great and everyone seems to get along and work quite well together

    Cons

    -They need more incentives for the sales team other than just uncapped commission which they take 13.5% off the top automatically right away for some reason that I can't even explain
    -Haven't really traveled much but have been told that many conferences we run will have great content and people, but sometimes they can look cheap with the food/presentation and the company needs to invest more in the customer experience since our clients pay good money to participate in these events
    -You get paid about 50% of your commission up front, but have to wait until a month after the conference you are selling on (could be months away) to get the rest (and most) of your hard earned money, which is how they ensure you stay to get your payday. This doesn't matter as much if you work 3+ events events a year but if you are starting out and grinding out sales your first few months it will take some time before you reap the benefits. The low starting salary (which can go up very quickly if you hit your reachable targets) do not help this issue

    Advice to Management

    From personal experience and what I've seen you are doing an excellent job for the most part, but would invest more in your employees, especially the sales teams that generate tens of millions of dollars to the business and get paid a fraction of that. In NYC there are plenty of other sales jobs out there that offer higher base salaries and appetizing incentives for their sales execs. Like anywhere else, pay here can be good if you work hard but it can always be better.
