    I worked at 5LINX full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    5LINX allows you to balance life and work very well. Owners are energetic and caring as was my direct supervisor. They allowed me complete freedom to do my job. People are great.

    Cons

    They don't pay very well for the volume of work expected. The training events are exhausting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider increasing starting pay and allow additional outside training.

    I worked at 5LINX full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Some benefits
    Close proximity to restaurants
    Some opportunities for corporate advancement
    Annual competition events

    Cons

    Superficial workplace
    Most reviews on this site are by customers of 5Linx, not actual employees. An "ISR" is not an employee.
    Manipulative management
    Bad call center training
    Sloppy procedures
    Low pay
    High turnover
    Bullying

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the real employees of 5Linx speak and not the ISRs on here who do not understand the difference. The real prior workers have much to say. If many employees dislike 5Linx, then customers should heed the warning.

    Pros

    What I love about this company is that the support system is huge. No one can come into this business and say that
    they didn't receive the help that need. Many are willing to help whether they are your direct upline or not. Representatives surely does comes first in 5LINX.

    Cons

    As with any direct sales company, the cons are handling rejection when introducing the opportunity to others who are unaware and ignorant of this industry or had a bad experience with prior MLM companies. Other than that, I have no other complaints.

    I worked at 5LINX as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone enjoys helping each other and love have a good time doing it.

    Cons

    None really. The only downside I can see when being a part of 5Linx is if you are just truly lazy and think that by getting into this business you'll become a millionaire over night.

    Pros

    The atmosphere to work in this company is surreal,, everyone treats everyone else, kindly and respectfully, people are always developing themselves through company training, summits, and conventions, I Love this Company, and in the Telecomunication and services Business, there is no match for 5Linx

    Cons

    You have to be your own CEO, Boss, or MAnager in Order to see real success, in other words all of the benefits, salaries and benefits are not fix salaries, therefore you need to work hard woth a good team of fearless people to help you achieve your Goals, while you help them also, which overall I guess that also a fair and good thing.

    Pros

    Relatively relaxed place to work and depending on your position they are happy to have you take projects and make decisions.

    Cons

    You work for an MLM, and the goals are changing every day. Everything revolves around the MLM and less about what you do as a job.
