    Pros

    Cydcor has provided me with so many opportunities for both personal and professional growth. They are truly devoted to their team members wellness and having work-life balance. The great company culture (not to mention the in-office gym) make working here really enjoyable.

    Cons

    Compensation could be better, it's not bad but definitely on the low end of the spectrum.

    I worked at Cydcor

    Pros

    For starters - the very positive reviews are current employees and the very negative reviews are most likely people who couldn't sell.

    True pros:
    Great for people in college looking for a chance to build a resume.

    Opportunity for responsibility at young age (train, manage, lead).

    Pay is 100% commission but decent money for college kid if he's good. I was making $750 per week on average.

    Fun / young culture

    HELPED ME BETTER MYSELF FOR FUTURE. STEPPING STONE!!

    Cons

    Cult feel. Like super culty. Okay to put up with temporarily, but gets old.

    No gas reimbursement.

    Manipulation depending on your manager.

    If you're not great with people and can't be a little pushy - this isn't for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more upfront about the job. Honesty is key.

    I have been working at Cydcor

    Pros

    The work environment is second to none. There are many people all wanting the same basic things you do; like a company that invests in them, trains them, gives them opportunities to move up etc. The structure is such that everybody genuinely wants to help others hit their goals. Those that only look out for themselves or make excuses, usually don't last long. Wish other jobs were like that. Growth is unlimited as is the potential for income. This is not a new concept!! But this company has done an impressive job of making it attainable with a comprehensive support system. Impressive clients, impressive company sponsored events, impressive bonuses. Good company to work for.

    Cons

    The work is very hard. Especially at first. And it doesn't get easier for a long time. I have worked here just over a year and still struggle at times. Can be difficult because it is often straight commission. However many jobs are like that. Nothing new. If you can't handle hard work, or self management/discipline you will fail. Period. Not the type of job you can slack with and still expect a good paycheck. Often long hours and sometimes customers or team members can be difficult to deal with.

    I worked at Cydcor as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I had such a cool experience working with Cydcor in the Marketing Department. The department met often and I had clear direction, without ever having someone constantly checking on me. I felt freedom to be creative and drive to impress my fellow employees. The atmosphere was laid-back but still professional, and I was able to meet and interact with upper management, including the CEO and COO, regularly. We took part in modules that focused on improving our time management, organization and communication skills, and more.

    I was passionate about my projects and was able to grow with the assistance of my peers, and my direct supervisor Gail Michalak. Overall, invaluable experience.

    Cons

    I had a bit of a commute, which was my only complaint.

    There are so many amazing and inspirational people that work for Cydcor. The company really encourages growth and reaching your goals, both personal and career related. There is such a positive environment, I love coming to work everyday!

    Cons

    I worked at Cydcor

    Pros

    Great environment, lots of fun co-workers, lifelong friends and some days you only work a couple of hours

    Cons

    I felt like they filled my head with pipe dreams. Almost everyday they pitched "focus on the big picture", which I did but my "big picture" never came because I was passed up on management with people that were getting promoted in less than one month. Also I felt like it was a cult, I spent almost 60 to 70 hours per week doing door-to-door and I wasn't even a manager. After a while I felt like another D2D agent that was there just to keep the company afloat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop overselling the position, be realistic in how much money new agents can make. Condense the workday to 8hrs. Nobody wants to work 60 hrs a week and making less than $500 a week.

    Pros

    No pros, all motives are questionable.

    Cons

    - They prey on the weak and "help" you succeed i.e. move up the ladder
    - 100% commission
    - No one really cares about the person below them; they are only in it for themselves
    - Shady, unethical practices
    - Exaggerated inspiring and convincing stories
    - Mandatory company outings
    - Little pay and lots of expectations: professional attire, pay for travel, work 12+ hours
    - Shady corporate culture
    - the list goes on...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop luring people in with false hopes and false advertising.

    Pros

    You can learn very basic business skills and some business acumen. You also will get to hear some really moving/inspiring speeches.

    Cons

    Simply put, the system. Period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the system. Don't treat people like #'s.
    "People helping People" ...so let's make sure we aren't exploiting people.
