I worked at DataSphere Technologies full-time

Pros

-Young, energetic workforce helps promote a fun atmosphere -Casual attire -Provided you can perform your job/hit your metrics/meet any set expectations, you can get away with a lot -Fairly easy to transfer to a different department and possibly change the course of your own career -Honestly met some of the most interesting, funny people here in my life.

Cons

-Working with a lot of other 20-somethings also means "often loud and downright obnoxious workspaces" -Most of the customer-facing/servicing positions are basically entry-level in terms of qualifications, work detail and pay, so you can get bored and demotivated quickly if you're truly skilled. -Micromanagement is rampant; most departments require their employees to adhere to strict schedules -Opportunities for advancement w/in specific departments is a bit limited. Most people "advance" by outright transferring to another department; otherwise, if you're interested in developing your career w/in a specific field or skill set, it might not happen there.

Advice to Management

Loosen the reins and treat everyone like adults. I've seen many talented employees stifled while less-deserving ones skate by for too long because the babysitting that masquerades as "managing" in some circles only serves to unnecessarily level the playing field. Free lunches and the occasional party is cool and all, but I'd trade most if not all of that for more flex scheduling, less micromanagement, and other examples of trust being placed in us which can help mitigate any dissatisfaction in pay and instill more loyalty among the employees.

    I have been working at DataSphere Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of great people. Relaxed environment. 40 hour work week. No nights, no weekends. No dress code. Sales is sales. Make dials, make money. Not easy, but if you put in the effort you can make goal, about 50% of sales make money. 10 to 20%, make more than 60k. 15 vacation days

    Cons

    Execs/managers don't care about anyone but there favorites. No respect or reward for hard work. Benefits are the worst. Very few long tenured employees with the company. Not impressed with base pay, but everyone is very underpaid. Best place to work is not true.

    Advice to Management

    Respect people and stop being cheap.

    Pros

    Awesome Fun Energy! High Paced. Ability to earn unlimited income. Great direction.

    Cons

    The work is repetitive. You will need to take a break from time to time. Quota starts over and over and over..you gotta be able to reset.

    Advice to Management

    More one on one's. It's an emotional sale, treat the employees with more emotion to find out what really motivates them.
