    Pros

    I'm working with people who care. This is a tough business and most merchants don't want to talk to you but when you can finally get through to those that do, we can usually save them a lot of money. That's not the part that keeps me here. Its the attitude of my co-workers. They truly want to help our clients. We want to make sure their not getting ripped off. Not all offices are like this one and I am grateful that I am here. Customer service and agent support are fantastic and the pay is good as well.

    Cons

    Training is lacking on a company wide basis. They also need to work with the current reps to help orphaned merchants who no longer have a rep.

    Advice to Management

    We have holes in our customer service. Merchants don't want a customer service number as much as they want a live person to talk to. Stop putting 100% of your focus on how many MID's you needed for the week and start directing some of that focus to your current clients who need help in upgrading. Those clients don't want to talk to someone on the phone, they want a person to be face to face with them. Start working with your local reps to help these merchants.

    Pros

    There are none with this company

    Cons

    First and foremost is the lack of training, you pretty much are left to learn as you go. Mean while if your not signing deals your not making any money. Management is only concerned with meeting their quota so they get their bonuses, even if this means costing the rep a large part of their commission. Favoritism is clearly alive within this company, the reps that are producing will occupy the majority of the managements time and the others are pretty much hung out to dry. Its sad when a rep who has been with the company for over 2 years and should know what they are doing gets all the help and a rep who has only been there 1 month is expected to run their own appointments. From day one management will keep trying to sell you on the Eliot Dream, which is nothing more than a load of crap. Only a few reps ever actually make any real money, In one year I have seen over 20 reps come and go. Sexual harassment, sexual innuendos and racially insensitive comments and jokes are often over look and sometimes even made by management. The company expects you to pay for all of your gas and provide your own car, pray your making money. They often offer contest for additional bonuses, the problem is most often you as the rep have to hound them about them or they will some how forget to pay you.

    Advice to Management

    Your company seriously needs to overhaul your compensation plan and your employee handbook and actually enforce it!

    Pros

    Great up-front pay on accounts signed, residual income from maintaining your clients is great plus it rewards you for being honest and ethical from the very beginning. Many different ways to be paid. Right people can make 6 figures in 1st year, average individuals can make 6 figures after 2-3 years. Your base increases year over year just for doing what you need to in order to make your commission.

    Cons

    Not for every person. Commission position until residual income is accrued. Have heard some Management isn't as dedicated as others. The Spokane Manager has excellent training and support so I haven't experienced what some people say in other reviews .

    Advice to Management

    Continue giving everything you have to new Reps, they truly need your support and attention for the first couple of months. I firmly believe the support from my manager was the only reason I have been so successful.

    Pros

    if you love to work for free this is the place for you. you are required to be there with no pay. Illegal as all get out.

    Cons

    working for free. I dont mind being 100% commission but if you demand my time at office making cold calls for you then pay me at least minimum wage. After all that is the law
    you work your butt off getting leads then they reschedule your prospects and dont tell you.

    Advice to Management

    stop steeling from people
    NEVER reschedule an appointment that is not yours unless you contact the sales assoc first.

    Pros

    Excellent Pay, Daily Pay, Great training, Fun Environment, continuing education, career advancement, great benefits
    I have worked with Eliot for over 2 years and if you are willing to work in proven process you will do well. High turnover is not based on eliot management group, it is based on lazy sales reps who want to be paid for minimal work. Never had issue recriving compensation, very ethical to merchants

    Cons

    challenging industry, requires average to advance sales skills, must be willing to adhere to sales processes

    Advice to Management

    ramp up salary for first month

    Pros

    My commissions are paid daily; and, I can (with work) make a lot of money in a hurry. There is some flexibility in the afternoons.
    The office is in North Austin!

    Cons

    It can take a few weeks to get up to speed. The training takes a few days; and then it took me a while to get my first sales. It was a squeeze my first month.

    Advice to Management

    A draw on commission would have helped at the start

    It would be best to train you reps to sell correctly rather than to pad their pockets and lie to get the sale.
