Avoid it. The sales expectations are not realistic. They will fire you AND PROTEST YOUR UNEMPLOYMENT!!!

Pros

Good sales training that is valuable.

Cons

Management is weak. They consistently miss their own fake forecasts and then whip the salesforce.
When you protest this - they get upset and fire you.

Used car salesmen have more integrity.

They lie about the forecasts.

The best and brightest do not last more than 6 months. Period, end of story.

They keep firing the majority of the salesforce in the NorthEast. 35 people in 16 months? Avoid it.

Advice to Management

Keep buying shares, Rolla! You will be very wealthy when you sell the company is 16 months.

    I've encountered nothing worth mentioning.

    Pros

    The senior management made an effort to be transparent and compensated people well during the continued attrition of the dial-up access business.

    Cons

    Continued layoffs in the consumer division.

    Advice to Management

    Look beyond middle management. Make an effort to hear from the ranks.
