    Worked for one year...

    Client Solutions Specialist (Former Employee)
    Overland Park, KS

    ProsFour weeks of vacation; many incentive days given if hitting numbers

    ConsOverall the CSS role is cold calling; they don't tell you this when you are interviewing. Many peers not being ethical and closing deals with promises that cannot be kept. Management is clueless about the pulse of the sales reps. I don't see this company making it much longer.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A learning summer internship.

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Greenwood Village, Arapahoe, CO

    ProsWas a good way to view how teams worked together in the real world. Team used a daily scrum, which was a good first exposure.

    ConsSlightly disorganized. Worked on a team that had not had an intern before. Felt like a lot of time was wasted when only working for a summer.
