    I have been working at Barton Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Barton Associates is a great place to begin your career. You begin with a lot of cold calling, but it's truly the only way to get comfortable on the phone and build up your client base. It's amazing how quickly you can move up at Barton. The environment, the people and the opportunity to grow makes me want to come to work everyday.

    Cons

    7am start time is rough especially at first, but after a month or so you get used to it. The pay is hard the first 6 months but if you spend that time building up your client base you'll start making commission soon!

    Pros

    Weekends off, full benefits in thirty days and five thousand raise after 6 months. A lot of growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Early mornings and long days. If you do not want to be on the phones all day don't apply.

    I worked at Barton Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people were nice and friendly, the manager was looking out for me and wanted to make sure I was happy in the position

    Cons

    I only lasted around 3 days before I had to leave. First off, training is pretty terrible. They train you for around 2 days and it mostly consists of shadowing people who have only been there a few months and also don't fully know what they are doing. In the interview they make it seem as if training is going to be a lot more thorough. By the third day, you're on your own making calls to people who mostly do not want to talk to you. But Barton doesn't care if that person has been asked to be taken off the phone list 4 times already in the past six months, you are encouraged to call them again. Also, they use pretty shady techniques to get doctors' information, in my short time there I saw people calling hospitals pretending to be patients (which is illegal) and calling up doctors' family members pretending to be former friends in order to get more information out of them. You are encouraged to be ruthless in your quest to build up a base of medical professionals. If you are willing to do anything for money and you don't care who you annoy and enjoy calling 100+ phone numbers a day, you shouldn't have a problem here. Also the work day starts at 7am which sucks.

    I have been working at Barton Associates full-time

    Pros

    The environment is great, very easy to get your work done and have fun at the same time! Every Friday is "Fun Friday" and we play games, go mini golfing, bowling, or out to breakfast. I am fairly new to the company and I know I've found the right one. The management is willing to take time to work with you if you feel lost at all and make sure that you understand everything.

    Cons

    The hours can get long if you have to work late to speak with someone in a different time zone. However, it's worth it when you get your commission!

    Pros

    It is a very goals and results oriented work place. If you are good at your job and work hard you can instantly start making more money. If you are not a results oriented worker this place probably isn't for you. Go make burgers or something. The management was very helpful and supportive. Some of the best in the business. They provide you leads so very little cold calling on the .com side. And of course the people in the Keene office all around made it a very likeable workplace. Their is a lot of room for growth if you want to lead.

    Cons

    Days can be long. Their will always be that one phone call from time to time that puts you in a bad mood. And of course dialing can be repetitive. Honestly for me the biggest con was the office location was in such a small town.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing in Keene. Best of luck.

    I worked at Barton Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the people you work with. The salaries and so-so benefits.

    Cons

    This company has the potential to be a great company to work for. One of the major issues is you have people in management positions who have no experience, and can't understand the concept of boundaries with employees beneath them. It becomes a popularity contest, and if you're not buddies with the manager forget about having a fair shot. Your work does not speak for itself, how brown you can get your nose does. The rules of the positions change day to day, and depending on who you're speaking with. Ethics are hard to find in most of the employees, and loyalty is nonexistent. This company has such a high turn over rate, that half the people in those photos up above aren't even with the company anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at who you put in these higher positions. Maybe start hiring management with some experience, who understand there is a reason you're not friends with your employees. Instead of relying on a honest policy system, which puts some employees at risk from threatened co-workers, you adapt some across the board standards for everyone.
