    I worked at 360training full-time

    Pros

    When I started with 360training I had been out of the corporate work force for several years. The fast- paced and dynamic environment provided a 'get up to speed' boot camp. It was just a short time before I was promoted and offered more responsibility. Throughout the years with the company I was mentored by the CEO and other executives. The knowledge and experience I gained allowed me to advance my career within 360training and opened up other opportunities.

    Cons

    The environment can be high-pressure at times but if you develop the skills to prioritize and vocalize your priorities then it is very manageable.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support and reward your dedicated and talented employees. They are truly invaluable to your success.

    Pros

    Great experience of how to handle a position that is not ideal, gives you a living/breathing example of how not to run a company/team/speak to others. Offers a decent product (courses), IT staff & accounting office are very helpful and kind.

    Cons

    I found it hard to even write this review, but, it is necessary to share my short experience at 360training. Hopefully this can help someone make a decision to either leave the company or not join the company. I am actually increasingly embarrassed to say I even work for 360training.com. I worked incredibly hard in college and past jobs and am constantly challenging myself to continuously grow and advance in corporate America. By working at 360, I almost feel like I have taken steps backwards. I also do not find it to be productive to constantly complain, but I will state the facts of the cons: underpaid, degraded, manipulated, demeaned, MICROMANAGED (to the point where you have to send daily reports of activity to your manager...only to get racked and stacked the next day against your peers..completely unprofessional), horribly outdated systems (already this year we have had to shut down for two weeks due technical problems), unsuccessful marketing team, lackluster tech-equipment (lap tops are from 2007-2009). CEO & CRO are two of the most in-genuine individuals I have ever come into contact with in my life.

    Pros

    The feeling around the office is changing. Fun activities for employees are being scheduled so we can get to know others more. The way departments work together was recently discussed and that was helpful. It appears the company is listening to employees.

    Cons

    Employees work on a lot of projects and it can seem that it is to much sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employees.

    Pros

    A paycheck....but a very lacking paycheck. The only pro I have about 360.

    Cons

    I can honestly say that I have never been happier to finally get out after some time here. The management makes you feel like you owe them something with no repayment with a salary increase or praise. It's give me, give me until you finally cannot give anymore. The salaries are lacking because they promise a quarterly variable. RUN!!!! The bonus structure is a hoax. Don't a believe a word they say about the Quarterly Variable. You never get paid even close to your "target". It's a ploy to get you to sign the offer and in the door. The lacking of HR and administrative workers is insane. They will hire and hire sales people, but understaff and over work the admin side of the business. They cannot keep an HR position filled to save their life. This is mainly because the owner is so crooked and asks these people to "work around rules and regulations". Be careful if they ever find an HR person that sticks around, he/she will be just as crooked as him. Most importantly take a look at how many executives this company has run through over the years. If they don't agree with Ed or his new fancy ideas, "they gone". This company has extremely high turn over. Most of the staff has been with the company less than 1 year. They have almost a complete company turn over every couple of years. Another complaint that ex employee have is they work so hard at 360 that it ruins their work/ life balance. It's hard to move on after working here because no company in their right mind makes you work so hard. You will be bored at every job after this. Ed is always pushing the HR newbies to push culture, but doesn't want to back it up. He wants to seem concerned about the employees, but without spending any of his money.

    Pros

    Good coworkers, free fruit, a few really good managers

    Cons

    Where do you start? Mold, mildew, depressing, fire hazard office. No HR. They hire HR people a couple times a year. No one stays long. Unfocused abusive CEO. No focus on strengths of the company because CEO is always chasing a new idea. Sales people struggle every day to figure out a way to sell inferior products because money is invested in pet projects and pet people that the CEO tires of in months. Then on to something else. No opportunity to advance. Below average wages pumped up with pretend bonuses. People get laid off all the time for not performing but the C level executive in charge of revenue doesn't even come close to delivering on what he promises. You can make your goals and not get a bonus because the CRO can't get his job done. I really liked the actual work I was doing here, but the demands increase every day, the pay is low with no hope of getting better and of the execs only the CFO and CIO really know what they are doing and give a ------ about the company and employees. If I could have worked for one of them I might have stayed and waited it out. The CEO seems to be losing interest and honestly if he'd leave the company would transform over night.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better. Let the CEO retire. Pay people what they are worth. Don't manipulate bonuses with unreachable revenue goals Give your sales staff something decent to sell. Concentrate on what 360 does best. Hire a strong independent HR person who doesn't report to the CEO.

    Pros

    I joined 360training October of 2010. This is the 2nd company that I worked for here in the Philippines. I was an Overseas Worker for four years in Shanghai, China working for a top corporate real estate company in Mainland as a Customer Relations Manager. The job pays very well, but was not giving me that fulfilling factor. After months of decision making, I decided to try my luck here in the Philippines. Finding a good job that matches what I earned working abroad was not easy. The first company I worked for was a BPO company. It did not last even for a year. It pays awfully low and there was just too many people to deal with. I decided to move on and try my luck in the Metro, one interview after another. I did not want to make the wrong decision and regret it later on, so I did the "Goldilocks" --- too soft... too hard... just right. Finally, I found my "just right" company, 360training. The offer given to me did not really matched what I was expecting to get but was very competative compared to offers of other companies. Beyond that, I saw a great opportunity to really grow with the company; the culture, the diversity, the location, and the people. From an agent in Customer Service, I was promoted as Supervisor. This year, I will turn 5 years old. Five years of service and growing and I am looking forward to it. So at this point, I can now really say that 360training is not just right, but perfect fit for me.

    Cons

    In every company, we see things that we can improve but more than that, its the way people contribute to each problem we encounter.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    It's in the same complex as a Walgreens which is handy.

    Cons

    360training is rotten from the core out. They claim to be a technology company but most of the technology hasn't been updated in 8-10 years. The 6000 courses that the CEO constantly drones on about actually amounts to about 500 of the most broken, outdated, amateur crap you could ever think if serving up to a student. The CEO is a complete joke of a human being let alone someone who could actually lead a company. He is a manipulative liar who denigrates his employees at every turn. Salaries are far below market value and I've never witnessed anyone getting an actual raise. I won't even get into the actual physical conditions of the office. Think a dank dark ugly moldy basement that shares a wall with a Jumpoline that blares EDM music at level 10 all day. Which is actually good entertainment for the rats and roaches crawling all over the place.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the CEO. And actually the CFO while you're at it, he hasn't been able to count a penny in any sort of accurate way since the doors open.
