    I have been working at Cbeyond full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Young environment, solid training courses and continued development. Potential to move up in organization. Not a bad industry to start in and next tier jobs have easy ability to generate 100k on. Once you have your pipeline up and running after 8 months or so the job becomes very easy. You can minimally work and still produce.

    Cons

    Management young and inexperience. Burn and turn, hire, grind, and fire sales model. Demand long hours for success and promotion (at least initially). Big favorites game for promotions, house deals go to manager favorites. Gotta drink the cool-aide to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Its a tough industry so while the burn and turn sucks for the employee I think it is the best option for the company. Now that they are moving into more advanced products maybe they can begin to turn away from that model.
