Actual growth oppertunities

Sales Representative (Current Employee) Westborough, MA

ProsYou work in a positive, supportive, and fast paced sales environment. I have now been working for Consumer United since December 2012. I started in the Back Bay office, but now work in the Westborough office, which is convenient to Metrowest area commuters. The office culture is laid back, but professional. This is a company that has been rapidly growing over the last 5 years or so and there is real opportunity for growth. There is great communication between the executives and lower ranking employees, and they are focused on employee satisfaction. We just got a pool table and ping pong table for the break room at the Westborough.

ConsPassing the initial licensing tests is very challenging, this is something you will simply be able to breeze through. Training is highly accelerated, but you are given all of the necessary tools to succeed though and help is always available along the way. There are often tech issues that can be frustrating, however even in the short time that I have been here, I have witnessed constant and continuing efforts made to resolve these issues when they arise. The job can be highly stressful, but it is sales, so this should be expected at times. You also need to be thick skinned because some of the people you will be calling are not always going to be polite.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Probably the fastest track from entry level to management available in sales industry without being a pyramid scheme.

    Licensed Agent (Current Employee) Westborough, MA

    I have been working at Consumer United full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Energetic yet relaxed work environment, tons of sales contests. Enthusiastic atmosphere with constant employee appreciation events. Training department is phenomenal, and ongoing training helps… Cons: Can be high pressure, as personal sales goals contribute to team/branch/company goals. At the end of the day,… Advice to Senior Management: Bumper Pool table. Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
