These were taken from LinkedIn updates and almost certainly does not reflect all Avigilon sales employee departures during June through September as many do not update their LinkedIn profiles immediately.
We believe this is notably higher than previous quarters for Avigilon and that this will pull down Q3 sales numbers. It's hard for any company to absorb many sales exits and keep their numbers up.
So if Avigilon comes anywhere close to their recent 38% growth rate, that will be an extremely bullish sign for the company. However, it would not be surprising if Avigilon's growth rate fell significantly.
Really wishing I had shorted these guys a few months ago...
Other recent Sales position departures:
Senior Sales Director Northeast North America Brian Giampaoli
Senior Sales Director UK Mark Massie
Business Development Manager Manufacturing Matthew Moreno
John,how many people do u employ ?
Just curios :)
Most sources would argue that anything less than 15% turnover rate for employees is considered 'healthy' - 10% ideal. Of the 886 employees reported in Q2 report, how many sales people do you estimate are in the company? 120 or less?
Baker and Lack were a huge loss. Hurt those markets a lot for Avigilon.
I can say, as a former IPVM employee, that the job can be difficult at times. However, the personal reward is high.
When you can have a profound impact on the industry and help others through the work you're doing, there is a high sense of pride taken in that aspect.
Every company/entity has a 'fit' for their culture. The challenge is getting good employees that fit said culture. That's a challenge every company faces when expanding or replacing employees. It's not about the number of employees you have...it's about having the right employees who do the right things.
