    Good pay for hard work. Casual environment. Lots of support.

    Abusive environment. they call it speaking their minds. However they have no respect for anyone's boundaries.

    Pros

    I've watched this company grow over the last several years and it's been amazing. As the company gets more successful, they pass that on to the employees. Pay raises, bonuses, and just general appreciation...it all comes back down the pipeline. It's a casual atmosphere where they encourage you to be yourself. If you work hard, they are great to you! It's also nice to see not only our department managers involved, but senior management is in the room every day....not managing...just saying hello. I've never worked for a company where the owners know all of the call center agents' names.

    Cons

    Sometimes, the call center can be a little noisy. It's when we're not performing like we should and management is working to pump us up. But there are still people on the phones, so that can be a little difficult at time as it comes across on the other end as unprofessional. Better equipment in the room would be nice too.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job. Just be careful as we grow in 2015 not to let the culture you've created slip away. This is a fun place to work and most people love it. Just please make sure it stays that way as we add more people.

    Pros

    The "foundation" upon which the business sits, is a good i d e a .

    Cons

    There is a rule where anything said, goes, so to speak. Cursing, saying whatever is on your mind ..<-- these, allowances, although with good intentions, makes the work place a hostile place. Horrible feeling walking in Monday mornings!

    Advice to Management

    It is important to value every worker you have - rather contractual or permanent, and to treat them with genuine respect. Also, to have individuals in areas that actually qualify for the job, would be most beneficial.

    The money you are capable of making is great. I love meeting new people everyday. The staff is wonderful and fun to be around. We are one big family.

    Cons

    Some Appts that are made for us are not easy to sale because it may be a new business and they have no money to spend. Or not enough appts in one day.

    Always show appreciation

    Our products promote the advancement of equality.

    Cons

    The only challenges I really see are a few normal growing pains. I'd say those are about the best challenges to have in a company you work for.

    Advice to Management

    As we grow, the benefits offered will need to be considered. Adding things like pre-tax healthcare savings, 401k with company match, etc. will all be welcome additions.

    Pros

    I started working in the sales department and to be honest I was terrible at it. I was not a natural salesperson, but they trained me hands-on until I became good at sales. As time moved on I told them I wanted to do something different. As we grew, there became a need for an part time marketing position in Social Marketing and I was promoted. Then about a year later, a full time marketing position opened up and I was promoted again.
    They are really open to trying new ideas and if it doesn't go well, they are supportive of it being a learning curve.

    Cons

    As a smaller company it can sometimes take longer to get certain things such as peripheral equipment but they keep a wish list for each department for when it can be fit into the budget.

    Advice to Management

    Work on providing more than a healthcare stipend for employees.
