    I have been working at Global Resources full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you are expecting someone to give you a large amount of money to do nothing, do not work for this company. The work is tough but can be very rewarding if you have the right attitude. As an analyst, you are expected to review business performance for small to medium size businesses. These companies often have technical experts that do not understand the business side of being an owner. In many ways, you are like a business doctor giving the client a complete physical. Your job is not to sell services, it is to make sure the client understands their company health. If you have a client that is sick, you should feel obligated to help them get healthy. Is a doctor who refers a patient to a surgeon a salesman? If you enjoy a new challenge each assignment, the opportunity to meet various business owners and the chance to help clients save their floundering businesses, this is a very rewarding career.

    My supervisor has been very patient and used each "failure" as a training opportunity to improve. I have not been yelled at or belittled in any way since being hired two months ago, despite the fact I probably deserved it a couple of times.

    The travel can be tiring, but when you are home, you are home and not expected to work. You will not receive calls or e-mails all weekend and you can focus on your family fully.

    Many of the negative reviews on this site, in my opinion, are from people who went into this with the wrong attitude or lack the work ethic needed to be successful.

    Cons

    The timing of pay, both commission and expenses, can cause a cash flow issue for the employee if proper planning is not done. The training is good, but the real learning goes on in the first few weeks on the job. There are so many variables to the process, it would be very difficult to reproduce this in a classroom setting. This will cause you to question the process and get frustrated, but you have to work through these issues to see the bigger picture and get where you want to be.

    If you are married, you must have the full support of your spouse to make this successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Potentially put together a booklet of case studies or examples of some of the common situations an analyst will face that can be studied. For example, a partnership with a fully engaged owner and one that is not so engaged.

    Interview Details

    After setting up the initial telephone interview, you receive literature concerning training, compensation, etc. You are expected to front all travel costs except flights and then get reimbursed only $100/ day. On its face, it is impossible to even consider the position.

    Interview Questions
    • Being asked to front their business expenses was shocking.   View Answer
