    Pros

    Incredible compensation plan. Set your personal sales goals at about three times the companies quotas (very obtainable with hard, hard work) and you will make a killing!

    Cons

    Consider a 401K match... One would be silly to turn down an excellent comp plan for lack of a match, however it would be nice if one was available!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work, continue the investment into marketing!

    Pros

    Mature, stable company. There really not much else to say.

    Cons

    Everything else. The people who work here suck. They pay us commission only. They manage by spreadsheets and don't care about the employees happiness. Managers sleep around. Sales goals are VERY unrealistic...there's a problem when only a very small percentage of us hit goal when there are like 80'of us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit. No one wants to work here. We just don't have a better option yet.

    Former Employee - Architectural Reporter
    Former Employee - Architectural Reporter

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

    Pros

    It's easy to get this job. There's not much of a learning curve for the job. Training consists of watching a few videos about the construction industry. All you do is call architects and developers and get specs for upcoming construction projects to publish leads online and in a newspaper for subcontractors.

    Cons

    Boring work if you don't care about the construction industry. Not much money at al.

    Excellent company

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at CDCNews

    Pros

    Company is growing, financially stable with internal promotion opportunity. Good management focus on maintaining a healthy bottom line which will ensure the company continues to thrive even in a poor economy.

    Cons

    Management team runs a tight ship; keeps an eagle eye on expenses and runs a very lean operation. Very focused on profit which is great; could incorporate department "Fun" activities to encourage communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work that has kept the doors open for so long. Consider incorporating an annual summer function (In addition to the holiday festivities).

  7.  

    Very compassionate company to work for.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Executive team is approachable and listens to complaints. My RSM is amazing new sales director is also great. Going on right direction.

    Cons

    No paid time off for sales, you get time off. All new sales. Separate retention team. Rep's are limited to 40 hrs a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sales reps should be exempt and able to work more than 40 hrs. It's straight commission. I'm sure there is a federal rule against that, but it would be nice.

    Pros

    Good people to work with mostly, you nearly can't get fired.

    Cons

    Very poor managers, old boys club, weak comp plan. Our team had done so well in sales and they came back and change the comp plan so we didn't make as much. This is no way to keep good people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on tools for the sale team. Pay a living wage.
