Pros

It is a young and energetic atmosphere. OK job out of school but it will get old fast once you finish the 4-month training program (which is pretty nice). They take you out to Chicago for the first two weeks (all expenses paid).

Cons

After the orientation phase in Chicago it all goes downhill. You go through several tedious rotations that require you to call and track shipments for about 4 months. I think they are revamping the training because it is pointless and wasteful at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Relax and don't micromanage so much. You will get more quality work out of the employees if they don't feel you breathing down their backs all the time.

    Pros

    Corporate setting, free meals on the company, very relaxed office atmosphere

    Cons

    -You have to sourece your own leads and they expect you to do it outside of work, without pay of course
    -The training is too short
    -No scale for marking up so they give you a sense to feel a bit like a shady broker

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff more, don't be so aggressive, supervising is one thing, but without giving your employees the right tools to be successful the upper level managers come off as money hungry.
