I worked at Detroit Business Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The management training program teaches a lot of leadership skills, and the people in the office are really nice and supportive. Really upbeat but professional work environment! I had a lot of fun working there

Cons

The transportation was too much for me personally since I had to drive an hour to work everyday and a lot of competition

Advice to Management

Business cards would probably help more

    Pros

    Young crowd, lots of laughs when you actually get to work with someone. Lots of praise for a job well done.

    Cons

    -Door to door sales. -Customers are mean and think you are scamming them. Customers will look Direct Energy (What you're "selling") up online right in front of you and yell at you because of bad reviews. -You spend a lot of money out of pocket with only hope of claiming it in taxes. -High fives in the morning gets a little bit old, considering it's the only fun you have all day until you go into the field alone. -VERY repetitive. -HIGH TURNOVER -When you go in for an interview you see about 5-6 others waiting to be interviewed as well. It makes you think about how good the job really is.

    Advice to Management

    Management is good. They are relatively upfront about what you're getting into. It's just hard to grasp until you're out in the field.

    I have been working at Detroit Business Consulting full-time

    Pros

    If you're sales hungry... This job is for you. High earning potential for entry level sales position. Great starting point for a sales career in a great work environment.

    Cons

    - 100% commission based salary - 0 benefits / retirement / medical / vacation / per diem or travel. - Significant out of pocket uncompensated expenses (fuel, telephone, mileage, travel) - Growth and promotional incentives are marginal. No additional compensation until you are advanced to upper echelon (partner / owner) positions.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of hiring 100 candidates, investing time, money, and resources in all of them only to have less than 10% stay on, put together a competitive compensation and benefits package and hire only qualified applicants. Reward middle management opportunities (not with just potential for advancement either).
