A company that practices what they teach their clients.

I have been working at Dale Carnegie as an intern for less than a year

ProsDale Carnegie has a great corporate culture. Employees enjoy a supportive environment, with focus on professional development. Everyone is very nice they also have opportunities to participate in all the Dale Carnegie Training courses.

ConsRelatively small franchises, with little room for growth.

Dale Carnegie Las Vegas, NV.

Business Development Consultant (Current Employee)
Las Vegas, NV

I have been working at Dale Carnegie full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThese people practice Dale Carnegie's Human Relation Principles in all that they do. Working in Las Vegas for Dale Carnegie has been the most amazing career experience I have ever had. I get to help people every day become more intentional in their lives both personally and professionally.
In addition, I get to grow each and every day from the amazing coaching and positive feedback I receive from the owner. I'm truly a lifer!

ConsNot enough time in the day to work.

Not a good franchise owner!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Richmond, VA

I worked at Dale Carnegie full-time for less than a year

Prosnone at the richmond location besides meeting clients! Dale carnegie is great but each franchise has a different owner so each business is run differently. Try working for headquarters or a different franchise

Conslow pay, no good leadership, values are opposite of what dale carnegie is all about, in it for the money, owner can never admit when wrong

Decent

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Dale Carnegie for more than 5 years

ProsYou will have the opportunity to attend some of the best training and development in the industry.

Fun and exciting solutions to sell to clients! Most everyone knows about Dale Carnegie Training so there is tremendous brand recognition and credibility.

Corporate is innovative and offering new and exciting solutions annually!

Work from home in some areas.

Tax write off of business expenses due to independent contractor status.

ConsA lot of competition in a saturated and penetrated U.S. market. The real growth is happening internationally.

Money hungry franchisees who don't always live the Dale Carnegie Principles.

Depending on where you get hired, be prepared for either a very small base ($1000/month) for a very limited time period (3 months) plus commissions and then it switches to 100% commission. In some areas it's 100% commission from the start (independent contractor which means no benefits).

In some areas, commissions are paid once a month only for $ that is turned in so you can have 20 sales but if only 3 have paid, you only get paid for 3 for that month which means you have to wait another month before you get payment on remaining sales.

In many areas, there is no room for growth due to the franchise model. The franchisees are very hands-on and some don't structure their company in a way that includes managers, directors, executives, etc. You will forever be a sales rep!

A lot of franchisees are old and hesitant the change.

Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate does a great job but franchisees should be a lot more competitive in compensation to their sales team and offer more room for responsibility and growth.

Professional atmosphere with growth opportunities.

Receptionist (Former Employee)
San Mateo, CA

I worked at Dale Carnegie full-time for less than a year

ProsCollaborative and team-building environment that was focused on client and employee satisfaction. Friendly boss and coworkers that encouraged and facilitated development within the company.

ConsThe job became very repetitive and dull because it lacked an edge that would have kept it challenging and interesting.

Advice to Senior ManagementPerhaps it might be beneficial to invest in a new CRM software.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
