    Pros

    They pay you. Beer on Fridays to distract you from the fact you are finishing off a 55-60 hour week talking to truck drivers.

    Cons

    Bad pay, bad hours, and very little chance to advance. There is a social circle similar to high school in the Chicago office. Those who kiss up to their managers or are part of the "cool" crowd advance. The only problem is that being part of that crowd is actually kind of pathetic. Carrier sales is like working in a call center. Everyone sits in front of their computer screens all day with their head sets on, and your calls are counted. Very little human interaction leads to a toxic atmosphere, especially after the company laid off a large percentage of its employees, most of them new hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't go on a hiring spree just to lay off a bunch of kids after a few months. Especially when your advertising both externally and internally about how much "growth" the company is experiencing. Stock price is the only thing that matters to this company, typical of a Lefkosky start up. Take a look at another one of his companies, Groupon if you want to see what the future holds for this company.
