    Pros

    Lots of turnover, so you can move up quickly. Management keeps things light, quarterly employee parties, free lunch once a month.

    Cons

    Terrible infrastructure. Management only cares about the sales team, and could care less about the lies the sales people tell that the rest of the company then has to deal with angry customers that scream and yell about getting scammed. If you like getting yelled at, then sure, work here. This company does not value the customer experience.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the sales people less commission, pay the customer service team a commission to keep the customers from cancelling after they figure out the lies they were told to sign up. Realize that it takes more than sales to build a company.

    Pros

    The shift you're expected to work is 7-4 which is nice to have if you have children. Especially in the summer.

    Cons

    - Company has a VERY bad reputation: By the time the actual customers read all the bad reviews from Google, Yelp, BBB, they want to cancel as soon as possible. There's no chance at having someone sign up if they read bad things about the product or the company you work for. (It's not just one bad review, or a handful, it's numerous pages of bad reviews DAILY). Working with this on a daily basis is mentally exhausting, especially for the low paygrade. - Base pay $25,000 - Favoritism in the office is an annoyance - Immature & very unprofessional management behavior - Revolving Door

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. The reviews online are so bad, that they make the sales process extremely difficult. It's been ongoing for a long time and nothing ever seems to change. Reevaluate the product because it doesn't work.

    Pros

    Great place to learn Sales and the sales process and gain experience. You don't have to take your work home with you, very social and friendly fun filled atmosphere. Fun place to work.

    Cons

    Compensation could be better. In Sales, pretty low starting base salaries. Commission is "ok" but could be better. Great place for entry level to gain experience and fun culture but not a good place for growth or moving up and learning more. Needs more ongoing training.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your employees to reduce churn. Raise base salaries of sales reps at least $10K/year more to a more industry average level, and provide more opportunities for growth by providing more ongoing management/leadership training, etc. Also to reduce turnover invest more in your product to make sure it's something stellar to sell to SMB's.

    Pros

    Very relaxed environment Kind of like a high school environment where you're free to do just about anything. I guess the pros really are cons. Get paid to do minimal work.

    Cons

    Management needs a lot of work. They allow just about anything to go on. Majority of prospective clients will ask if it's a scam... If you type data sphere in google the next word that appears is scam, so not a good outlook for a sale. They hire inadequate employees who barely got by HS, not to mention they allow a lot of bad office behavior! Not a good job for a résumé to put down but it pays fairly decent.

    Advice to Management

    Background checks

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible schedule working with some really nice people. Not a place for a long term career but a good entry into inside sales.

    Cons

    This place was a Hot Mess! Incentives included cash and mini bottles of booze you could display at your desk. Micro-managers constantly hovering in the background. Dialing for dollars and closing a quick deal. Memorable quote from my team leader: "Just get their credit card and move on!" Unfortunately, the prospective customer I was talking to on the phone also heard this and hung up.

    Advice to Management

    I sincerely hope this place has improved.
