I worked at DataSphere Technologies full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Awesome employees, no dress code, "come as you are" attitude (as long as you can sell)

Cons

High pressure, selling products that do not work or look like crap, which will result in you ending up with guilt and lowering your productivity

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less micro managing. Get to know your sales people and their strength and weakness and work with each person individually.

    Pros

    My co-workers are great! I don't think I would survive this place without them. We are all in the same boat with how much we dislike this place.

    Cons

    Where do I begin. The management is terrible and I would take the high scores on this site with a grain of salt. It is all about who the favorites are of upper management. How the raises work do not make any sense. If you are the number one performer for several quarters and make less than someone who has been with the company for one quarter, please tell me how that makes any sense??? I would not recommend this company to anyone. The turn over rate is really high and it is obvious they don't care about employees that bring value to their business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider teaching the department heads leadership skills

    Cons

    -Low pay ($12/hr with no overtime)
    -One-time pay out of commission. No Residual
    -Product DOES NOT work
    -Sales associates have to (not want to) lie in order to sell the product bc it is so bad
    -Customers cancel within the first 90 days of a 12 month contract bc the product does not work
    -Local news stations are trying to cancel their agreements with Datasphere bc it is untrustworthy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your business model is so poor, you'd be better off firing everyone and starting from scratch or closing your doors entirely.
