Technical Sales Engineer Reviews

What is it like working as a Technical Sales Engineer?
Technical Sales Engineer in Indianapolis:
"My Adventure In Sales."
Pros: I like the flexibility in my work hours. I am free to make my own decisions regarding my territory and how best to manage accounts. I have been given my own company car, an expense account that covers gas, lunch with clients, and all travel related expenses. Additionally, my at-home internet is covered by my company, as is a cell phone. Overall, I have found a low stress, fun job that utilizes my love of chemistry.
Cons: Personally, I am not an extroverted person. This makes cold calling and talking to people a bit of a chore.
