    I worked at Selby Jennings full-time (more than a year)


    It's a great place to work right out of college, everyone is young likes to go out together have a good time. Culture fit is a huge things since you have to be there 11-12 hours a day sitting right next to the people on your team, they do a great job of hiring people to fit with the particular team to maximize performance.
    The uncapped commission structure is great. You really do have the potential to make 90-100k in your first year. They also have fun things like the summer & winter holiday that you can either be one of the top performers or hit certain goals and win free trips, lunch clubs where you leave the office early and get treated to an amazing meal and drinks at noon.


    You may be able to make a lot of money, but it comes at a cost.
    There is very little work/life balance, the people in your office become your really good friends (a good and bad thing), you can forget about meetings your other friends for happy hour after work because you get off work when happy hour ends.
    There are clear favorites in the office, most typically are the ones that are billing the most each month or overall, and unfortunately if you aren't in that category they do not pay too much attention to you other than to call out the negative things. Once you get past the "honeymoon stage" of the first couple months, the pressure is there to make deals and it will be coming from every direction. If you can't handle a high pressure job this is not for you!
    Money is the bottom line (which is to be expected in this industry) and they will do/say what ever it takes to get someone to take a job or convince a manager to hire someone. Sometimes that is needed to push the process along, but some times it also crosses an ethical line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more concentration on training people all the way through the process, not just after the first couple of months.
