    I have been working at CityTwist full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you want a long term job working for a company in the tec industry that is growing by leaps and bounds this is a great place for you. Sales manger and VP of sales are outstanding. Beyond sales, each department is run by a dedicated, hardworking leader who works to foster growth and is committed to helping his/ her underlings learn the biz and succeed. fantastic benefits, fantastic potential for personal growth, much higher than average earnings in Florida.

    Cons

    sales---if your afraid to work hard you wont make it. the pay is too competitive and there are a lot of people out there looking for jobs like this. if your spineless and a non self starter you most likely wont make it.
    if your obnoxious or a trouble maker you wont make it. if you cry all the time and expect hand outs you wont make it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep crushing the game.

    Pros

    Benefits are OK for a small company. Salaries are average.

    Cons

    The company is in the business of sending blast email. It isn’t surprising that most of its customers are car dealers, which aren’t known by their high ethical standards.
    The CEO is a cynical individual. He has deformed the word “communication”. In his degraded version, it means “report everything to me”.
    On the other hand, the term empowerment doesn’t even exist in the company vocabulary: employees are micromanaged to suffocation.
    There are lots of so-called leaders, but no real leadership. The decision making process is convoluted and most of the time, ineffective.
    Language is often profane.
    The real culture is the lack of respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at CityTwist full-time

    Pros

    Some good people work there. OK place for phone sales people.

    Cons

    Depending on which department you work at, the environment could be fun and friendly or a nest of snakes. Management doesn't care and, at times, encourages this behavior.
    Offices are a joke, overcrowded, employees have their small cubs on hallways and rooms are stuffed with 4 or 5 persons where only 2 or 3 would be acceptable.
    Management continuously changes directions and the CEO wants to know it all and have the last word on just about everything.
    Apparently meetings are not considered work so, when possible, they are accommodated during lunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train and promote employees that have worked hard and gave countless hours to the company, not only the friends and the obsequents.

    I worked at CityTwist part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Ongoing training is superb as well as the amount of income you can make. The product is 2nd to none and everyone of my clients practically have had stellar results.

    Cons

    Cold calling. If cold calling or walking in on local businesses isn't really your thing you may not like the job. However...If that isn't a set back for you most potential prospects are very receptive and want to have a go at the service

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe update the office a bit aesthetically speaking but other than you guys are solid in my book.

    I worked at CityTwist as a contractor

    Pros

    Work at home, all you need is a computer and headphone. Make your own hours and control your income. Decent payouts.

    Cons

    Shamelessly rude and unprofessional sales manager as well as other staff members. They do not know how to be gracious or kind. Very inept Sales Manager. The IT staff is very abrupt and condescending.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employ a professional Sales Manager who knows how to reasonably and intelligently conduct sales meetings without all the brashness!
