    Pros

    If you teach yourself the job, you'll be OK. And if you are in with the Higher ups, you'll be set. Just watch out, they do a reduction in force every February.

    Cons

    you will not be able to move into a higher position unless someone dies OR you are liked by all managers. You will be worked to the bone and only be told how the managers did good to achieve what needed to be done. There is NEVER any compensation for the long hours you put in. MAYBE a vendor buck! if you are not liked, the managers do not hide that fact. If you are a temp you really need to careful. This company has a revolving door and they do not need an excuse to let you go. There is never any room for improvement. even if you suggest something to manager or directors that could possibly better the company,it will never be YOUR idea. they look at you like you have two heads, fire you for the suggestions, BUT they still implement the suggestion under their terms to make themselves look good. the senior management is deceitful, they even go after leads and areas managers just to save their own hides. The director also cannot make a decision unless he/she follows up with her favorite mangers, (who need to be fired). If you like to be lied to then this is the company to work for. They have the lowest starting rate, can't keep their customers happy, but STILL manage to blame the employees instead of looking at themselves. If they didn't have a reduction in force (letting go veterans of the company) EVERY February, then maybe they would be able to keep their customers happy, instead of bringing in new people who consistently screw up. Oh, and lets not forget to mention, DO NOT give a bad review on your "anonymous" Pulse survey. Magically, the people who tell it like it is, tend to get fired!!

    Advice to Management

    too many chiefs, not enough Indians. Listen to your employees, they are the ones actually doing the job while you sit on your butts looking only at numbers. stop trying to head hunt!!! Keep the temps that actually work. Don't base your opinions on if the person looks good or not!!

    Pros

    great learning experience, great time to short the stock

    Cons

    the most disorganized & least paying sales org ive ever worked for. no guidance or coaching from management on career advancement. promotion not based off revenue performance. little to no good feedback. worked there 2 years and received less then .50 cent raise, and thats with a good annual review.

    Advice to Management

    get your act together and hire real sales people, the competition has an easy edge against TD any day of the week because of this. way too much bias in the hiring process.
