    I have been working at Eliot Management full-time (less than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    A draw on commission would have helped at the start

    I worked at Eliot Management full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It's the perfect place to work if you like to set your own schedule.
    It's the perfect place to work if you want to be paid minimum wage while you listen to what they call "training"
    It's the perfect place to work if you buy the hype that you'll be making six figures in your first year.
    It's the perfect place to work if you want to be the most senior new rep after six weeks of working there.

    Cons

    It's the perfect place to work if you want to constantly field complaints from customers who's rep quit.
    It's the perfect place to work if you want to try to figure out how to put gas in your car to go to your next appointment.
    It's the perfect place to work if you want to burn that gas driving your manager all over town
    It's the perfect place to work if you're OK that you have to drive him because his $60,000 truck burns too much gas.
    It's the perfect place to work if you want to see pictures of your assistant manager hiking in Iceland & the Phillipines.
    It's the perfect place to work if you think training consists of "make 100 calls a day".
    It's the perfect place to work if you buy that out of 500 calls a week you'll set 25 appointments.
    It's the perfect place to work if you want to sign up your friends and family for poor service before you quit.
    It's the perfect place to work if you want to explain to them why you leased them a $200 terminal for almost $3,400.
    It's the perfect place to work if you accept that you won't have insurance for over a year.

    Yeah. It's the perfect place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What would it matter? Management doesn't want you to succeed at EMG. They want the revolving door of employees to come in, sign their friends and family to three year contracts with a $500 cancellation fee and four year leases for equipment. Once you've done that, they want you to quit so they can keep the residuals for themselves rather than paying their reps.

    I have been working at Eliot Management

    Pros

    The recruiter seemed to like her job and was enthusiastic about how she came about coming to this company. She was knowledgeable in this particular field and had a great demeanor.

    Cons

    The management follow through in ensuring employees got their training paid was lacking.Several of the trainees in our class were seeking payment His attention seemed to be distracted by his cell phone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow through with getting paid is lacking and the manager didn't seem to care about anything other than his employee outbound calls and his incoming texts

    I worked at Eliot Management full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity to make loads of commission based money.

    Cons

    My manager was racist, sexist, and rude.
    I was lied to about the reputation of the company which I found out the hard way.
    Also learned that their sales reps like to lie to clients about anything that will get them the sale.
    The whole experience was disgraceful.

    Pros

    It was close to home. Thats about it

    Cons

    The strategy for generating sales was poor. The training wasn't much more that the management repeating themselves over and over but never actually doing anything to help. It was a very "their way or the highway" attitude that didn't allow you to find your own groove.

    I have been working at Eliot Management full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are quite a few good people who try hard. That's about all I can really say about the company in a positive aspect there.

    Cons

    100% commission for reps. They are REQUIRED to be in the office at 8AM for meetings, call jams from 9AM-12PM. You are out in the field in the afternoons and have to report back to your office by 4:30PM for a daily wrap up. You have call expectations that you MUST hit, along with scheduled appointments and meetings in the field. You are berated and frowned upon if you DO NOT hit your call targets. EMG has a very bad name in the public view due primarily to the way EMG treats their merchants. The industry alone is a tough industry to make money in but bundle in the poor customer service and treatment of merchants, you get EMG with a bad name. Do a BBB serach on EMG BEFORE you go to work for them. A very bad rating. If you do end up making money at EMG, the commissions can be good but in order to qualify for high commissions you have to put merchants in high rates with lengthy contracts. Most merchants are keen to this and will not allow this. Or you have to lease them 200$ credit card machines for $49.95 for 4 years to make a decent commission. What kind of business model is this? A poor one and you're hurting the merchant by doing so. You will

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest. This isn't an MLM. You advise District Managers to sell the dream to reps. You aren't honest with these reps. VERY few make it to the point that they're successful with EMG. Those that do, are an anomaly compared to the largest share who are not successful.
