Pros

I guess you could consider this a "job". Except you get paid a 1099 and not a real W-2.

Cons

Like many, I was bought into this well-adverised pyramid/multi-level marketing scheme by the promises of earning six figures and "retiring before 40". I never worked a full time position before, so I took it hook, line, and sinker. My supervisor claimed he was saving his spot for me when he moved up. It turns out he promises that to EVERYONE when they get hired. He only knew me for a couple weeks, so I guess I should have wondered what was up. The "leads" are telemarketing scripts. Be prepared to get yelled at for hours. If you're lucky, you might get a hit. Everyone says it is about working hard and if you fail then you didn't work hard. That is just stupid corporate speak. If it is too good to be true, probably is. (Also, be prepared for charge backs.)

Advice to Management

Start by not lying. Also, pay a base salary and give defined territories to help retain talented people. I saw so many people come and go in my short time. The place is a joke.
