    Current Employee - Connected Business Group Sales in San Francisco, CA

    Pros

    Can find a good work school balance for those who are active students as well as getting job experience with no current job experience.

    Cons

    Poor management, even from the corporate level. With the new business model, company no longer trusts blue shirt sales individuals to correctly do their jobs, so have gone to a scripted sales method for face to face sales interactions. New business practices has made Micro-managing a Standard Operating Procedure and the hope to make any money has now been 'restructured' out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some college graduates in business and management who have a good prospective on good management skills and decision making, to manage your business. Pay your staff, it will get them to stick around for a bit and you can have some knowledgeable staff who can effectively assist your customers. Revert back to some older business practices from when the company was working, not all new ideas are good ideas.
