    Pros

    desk job, air-conditioned, corporate America.

    Cons

    100% outbound calling to internet leads. 80% of people you talk to are jerks. Its very tuff. It will wear on you. Turn around is high. The noise level is very high, managers laughing obnoxiously and right by the phone. Very unprofessional. Inconsistency between managers. The kicker, they include White Guilt as part of their sensativity training.

    Advice to Management

    You need to pay attention to who you hire as managers. They are very inconsistent in following the rules and guidlines. Some are laid back and dont follow rules and others are micromanagement nightmares. It makes an already stressful job more stressful
