        I have been working at Worldwide Business Research full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        WBR is a well run company with a solid management in place. Middle and upper sales management have at least 10-15 years of experience each in this industry, and know how to properly run a sales team properly. Expectations are realistic, KPIs are not the main focus of your progress and success. While you need to preform, you're looked at from a growth perspective first and foremost - it's not an environment where you either...

        Cons

        Tech and the office definitely need to be updated, but there have been small improvements which is a good sign (new desks, a few newer computers, etc).

        Keep it up!

        You’re consistently learning and growing and someone is always there to offer a helping hand. Criticism is also always followed with what you’re doing well too, never all bad. Making mistakes is a part of the learning/growth process.
