    Pros

    If you work very hard, there is a great possibility to make decent money.

    Cons

    Some of the people they hire are not too smart. Can't really trust too many people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire smarter people and actually care about your employees.

    Constant employee turnover.
    No real goal for the company's future/growth (too much "living for the moment").

    I worked at E1AM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will get the best sales training of your life working here. The culture instills strong work ethic not found in many places today. The CEO Ron is extremely well educated and amazing at what he does, although Sunny the director is one of the best salesmen I have ever seen work.

    Cons

    Long hours with very low compensation in the beginning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not all management and groups tend to spend time cultivating workers into management potential

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    They hire anyone and anything goes.

    Cons

    Company not managed properly so they isn't any structure. The only ones seem to be making money are the owners.

    Have some manners and respect your employees. Clean up the office and communicate better with workers.

    I worked at E1AM

    Pros

    Generally very flexible hours. Lots of downtime: back office workers spend a good amount of their day studying for school, surfing the web, preparing for interviews, etc.

    Cons

    The owners of the firm are so reluctant to spend money they wouldn't even spring for Antivirus software. Salaries for all positions are far lower than industry average. The brokers get a VERY poor compensation deal. After leaving this firm, I was doing the same job at another firm for 2.5x times my salary at E1. The company has roughly 50 odd people and has had, by a senior employee's estimate, over 2500 employees come through the doors and left in its 12 years of business. When people leave the firm, co-workers are very happy for them, as if they had just escaped from prison.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are losing a lot of productivity by trying to find bargain employees and letting your best workers go out the door and find better opportunities. Pay for antivirus. Yeesh.

    I worked at E1AM

    Pros

    Working here was the hardest job I ever had, but I woould go back because it made me a man, I started when I was 18, and I learned life skills

    Cons

    Your body will be mentally physically and egotistically drained, I mean what other way can I put it. They love slaves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder to be good to your employees, they are the most valuable assets because they are your true prosperity.

    I worked at E1AM

    Pros

    Have a great opportunity to pratice pitching. Does not have to be well educated. You can do well if there are clients

    Cons

    Lack of regulations need to find out for yourself. No structured environment. Things are not coordinated well low paying job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership there are experience brokers who off quiet a bit of things if you can make it. Test are gurelling and they do not give enough time to study.
