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

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money here and the people are fun to work with. Also, the room for growth is exponential. I have a friend who is making close to 200 K and I made over 100 this past year. We are now selling cloud services and its fun selling a cutting edge product.

    Cons

    The hours are long and it took me my first few months to get used to. This company definitely isn't for someone who wants a job, but instead is looking to establish their career in sales. The company does have a high turn over, but that's probably because not everyone has thick skin like I do.

    I have been working at Cbeyond full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This isn't the company for people who are looking for a job. This is the place for those who are looking to accelerate their careers and pass up their peers. I started here four years ago as an entry level sales rep with a base of 31500, and the road was not easy. The first four months were as hard as everyone says, but through the extensive training Cbeyond provided, I was able to improve and start making some serious sales. To be fair, I wasn't your average rep. I was one of the first in the office and the last to leave because this was something I really wanted to take full advantage. By the end of the year, I had been promoted to Team Lead and had made 70k in my first year out of college.

    Four months later, I was promoted to a sales manager. 18 months later, I was promoted to market director. I made 96k my second year and 127k my 3rd. I'm 26.

    This is a tough gig and it's not for everyone. However, those who are able to make it 2 successful years are heavily recruited at pharm companies and med device sales companies because as recruiters have often told me, if you can make it at Cbeyond, you can make it anywhere.

    Don't waste your time there if you aren't confident that you're in the place and time in your life where you want to make a career leap. Be honest with yourself because if you're not ready for Cbeyond, it will crush you. If you are, however, it will make your career and your wallet a lot of money.

    Cons

    High turnover so your friends might not be there the next month, but a great place to make friends. Lots of fun, young people.

    Difficult job. Anyone who says long hours has a different point of view than I do. In my opinion 55 hours a week is not long hours. But, others may feel differently. It's tough in the way that there is a lot of rejection in the field.
