    I worked at 360training full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun people, enjoyable culture, hard workers

    Cons

    tough economy, business prospects not great. The long term prospects of this company didn't look great, but it does always manage to survive any bumps they hit. Had a lot of turn over while I was there, did not like that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    higher pay for staff, employees are expected to work very hard. Most do and most are motivated to do so, higher compensation would ensure that continues and lower turn-over.

    Pros

    Casual work environment, great place to learn new skills because they underhire for their needs. Compensation is decent for sales people, you can earn good money if you work hard.

    Cons

    They went through 6 HR generalists in the two years I worked there. Sales position B2C may rewquire evenings and weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know your employees names and what they do.

    Pros

    - great place to learn and make big mistakes because nobody knows what they're doing. Really smart people who work tirelessly.

    Cons

    - Where to start.............the entire shop is run by the CEO who is the only person in the company who has no track record of success. He hires top talent and then runs them off when they don't agree with him.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to step down and get a CEO who can save your company.

    Pros

    Great industry to be in, fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment and smart colleagues. Company provides a great opportunity to gain leadership experience. Good company values and a focus on putting the growth of the employees and customer at the center of our business.

    Cons

    Up until a few months ago I would say lack cross-department collaboration and goal alignment, but I believe there is a renewed sense of importance around collaborating across the entire organization and alignment across stake holders to achieve goals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on intra-department collaboration and goal alignment with stake holders across all three offices and don't lose the sight of delighting your employees and customers

    Pros

    Working for 360training has been an incredible learning experience for me. I find myself handling tasks I would have never imagined had I not been given this opportunity. Working here not only gives you an opportunity to grow but allows you to utilize your most valuable skills. In addition, the culture definitely makes you feel at home!

    Cons

    More training would have been beneficial.

    Pros

    Growing Company with a focus on wanting to be better, bigger and relevant. Not complacent on being the same old same old. Try to set a work life balance and fun environment.

    Cons

    Company has an inability to stick to a plan. Change directions with every new Idea and "suggestion" they receive. Lack of communication between all the different projects and divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not change direction on every new Idea. Allow previous projects and plans to be completed before deciding results

    Pros

    Anybody working at 360 will learn something! It's a fast paced environment - any idea is a good idea. Coworkers are ok.

    Cons

    The company does not have a CEO. On paper? Maybe. But in reality the CEO is also CEO of a new startup and then has other businesses. The little time he spends on 360training projects he spends in insubstantial details. No strategy, vision, big picture. It's amazing the company made it this far without a 'real' CEO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider getting a full-time CEO, ideally someone that has a strategy.

    Pros

    None at all - stay far far away

    Cons

    This company used to be great. Now its a complete joke. All the good people have left. The people that are still there are looking for a job. I think the biggest issue is that the company is run by the executive team, who are often wrong, but dont want to listen to their employees or their customers. If you go against the executive team, you WILL get fired.The goals are unrealistic and everything is completely broken. Dont ever expect to make your monthly quota and you will NEVER make your variable pay.

    If you work hard, they will just want you to work harder and never appreciate you. Even if you get a job offer from here, continue looking. Its better to look around than to waste time here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive team needs to change.
