    We are looking to increase that amount of self service certification as a test to speed the time to revenue. Watch for this.

    Pros

    Some programs are great - others not so much -

    Cons

    poor communication between Arise and the IB partners - slow and cumbersome ticketing system to get issues resolved - client managers virtually never answer your emails

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your IB and CSP who are the backbone or at least one half of your bread and butter to success

    Pros

    Idependent Contracting and working from home. You also get to make your own schedule.

    Cons

    Way too many fees, I feel like training should be paid and they shouldn't terminating SOW's.

    Advice to Management

    People will leave if you continue terminating SOW because that stops them from being able to service other clients. Just don't renew the SOW.
