    Pros

    Great organization, principles and proven training solutions backed by a global brand. Very strong heritage of helping others and driving results.

    Cons

    I have been working at Dale Carnegie full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The growth and development opportunities are world-class - access to all Dale Carnegie programs. It is also an opportunity to learn about a wide range of businesses, as the organization consults across a broad scope of industries. The people that are drawn to working in this business are generally very people-centric, so the culture is one that is supporting and fun.

    Cons

    Not a con for everyone, but the job is pay-for-performance (not 100% commission, but the commission can make a big difference) - those who put in a reasonable amount of effort do very well here.

    I have been working at Dale Carnegie part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Exposure to the original Dale Carnegie books, principles, and teachings; some very capable trainers

    Cons

    Poorly organized franchises, weakening brand recognition, peculiar trainer-training techniques, don't consistently "practice what they preach," some weak, inexperienced and older "phone it in" trainers are killing the brand, obvious/nasty competition among sales staff for leads and closed deals

    I worked at Dale Carnegie full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the most qualified trainers in the business, access to all Dale Carnegie training at no cost, great interaction with business community.

    Cons

    all locations are franchised and most franchisee's have no real management skills or abilities. Money is number one priority of franchise, their employees are at the bottom of the priority list

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow the Carnegie principles in all areas of business and success will come.

    These 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.

    Cons

    Not enough time in the day to work.

    Pros

    none 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

    Cons

    low 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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    practice what u preach everyday

    Cons

    If you are selling Dale Carnegie it is a tough market out there. Companies don't seem to invest in their employees like they used to do.

    Keep up the good work!
