    3: provides flexibility to employees on how and where to work
    4: has brought in good executive talent

    Cons

    1: Going through change
    2: Figuring out among many opportunities where the company is going to focus
    3: you find mix of talent, good and not so good. That mix, slows things down

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    The $.20 drinks and free fruit are the silver lining here. The health benefits start 30days after hire. The break area has a ping pong table.

    Cons

    The CEO and executive team are in constant battle for who's the smartest. There is zero structure and therefore very little execution on anything meaningful that would actually make the company revenue. Forget about ever really making variable comp. The failed goal structure and lack of direction means this company rarely hits it's revenue goal.

    This is a training company that fails to provide training to its staff. Career growth and advancement is based on the CEO and Executive team's personal preferences. Amazing talent walks through the door and then is set up for failure due to the CEO's mentality that people should be able to just figure it out. (Literally no training or development).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you would step out of your offices and actually talk to the staff, you would find hard working and incredibly talent team members that are starving for one of you to see their worth.

    Pros

    Free fruit every other Thursday

    Cons

    The company will drain your time with senseless initiatives to address the lack in strategy. Depending on what book of the week the CEO is reading, you will either be implementing the Rockefeller Habits, the Oz Principles, Six Sigma, KPMG best practices or the Operational Excellence procedures. Everything you did up to this point – stop it. You will spend countless hours attending meetings, filling out forms, designing SOPs and reading scripts, books, newsletters just to have it all go to waste next week. The attrition rate is very high – mainly due to the constant shift of focus, lack of strategy and lack of leadership. Executives micro-manage beyond belief and all the hours you don’t spend in meetings you spend refining reports. Eventually your productivity will be close to zero and you will spend more time in meetings explaining why. Many talented, creative employees have left because of this reasons. The company is doing nothing to address the high attrition. Fun fact: HR Directors last the least: in 3 years the company had 8 people in that position.
    This is the worst company you will ever work for. Think twice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As for the executives: Remember, people don’t quit companies, they quit people. In theory the company has tremendous potential – in reality it has none. Continue what you are doing and the exodus will continue.

    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.

    I worked at 360training full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It's a paycheck
    Acquired experience that helped me to get a job at a real company

    Cons

    The CEO
    The management in general
    Lack of communication between departments
    Lack of vision, priority, execution
    Unprofessional and toxic environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much to say here. The CEO/founder is terrible. With leadership this bad, there's not much that can be done. Also, for those reading, any review you see about this company that gives more than two stars is probably bogus...

    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

    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.

    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
