Pros

Fun environment. Fast paced and there are always sales dropping. Should meet some good people. The management from Washington had bright and intelligent sales minds. Easy one call sales so a shorter sales process. Good if you are in between jobs. Easy ramp up period for new hires.

Cons

Hired unqualified leadership. Those who didn't perform were ignored. You could go a day without a sale and you were looked down upon. Pay is low compared to the Washington location. Be ready for tons of change constantly. Very entry level sales. Tons of pressure that mounts up quickly. Do not call sales are abundant. Lots of cancels ...

Advice to Management

Don't allow your potential stars to roam unattended. They will find work elsewhere.

    Pros

    -Casual dress code -Young and fun environment -Uncapped commission -Paid time off & Paid holidays -Lots of freedom as long as you're selling -You can receive a $2 base pay increase as long as you are 140% to goal in 5 consecutive months.

    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 -No repeat customers (need I say why?) -Sales associates call customers "dumb" for signing up. -High turnover. 2-10 people leave every month. -Management is a joke. Most have drug problems and turn a blind eye to sales associates lying to get deals bc their commission checks depend on our sales. -HR doesn't exist here -Benefits are expensive and a joke -The company finds a way to avoid paying out commissions. -20-30% of sales associates actually make goal -The company does not care about their employees, only lining their pockets. -No growth opportunities

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    The hours are 7am -4pm or 6am -3pm get up early do your job and go home. The team is environment is the best. The sales is easy and not very stressful if you are experienced but if you are not you will struggle. When you make commission at least in my product I sold it was the best. If you manages to stay six months and have high talk time and hit quota another company will head hunt you right out of there with better pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Inconsistent policies making Senior AE is a joke. They keep changing the qualifications so lesser people make it. The pay is the lowest in the media & advertising industry and no one stays. There is an inexperienced operations person and most people in the position never worked the position in other companies to give a good outlook. The benefits are the worst and the company meetings are useless.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency, quality and experience in everything you do will make a huge difference in your culture and longevity. Wonder why you have not been on best places to work? Walk around the sales floor and ask!
