Pros

If you like free sodas, they have them here.

Cons

"Inside Sales" employees are put into tiny cubicles that resemble dog kennels, and make calls to hundreds of small business owners every day. Everyone is subjected to horrifying morning GlennGarry GlennRoss meetings. You literally show up, cram yourself into your tiny little cubicle, and make calls to strangers all day about leads. I've never seen so many miserable people in my life.

Advice to Management

Kill the condescending morning meetings and be up-front about the amount of compensation that is truly attainable ($35K) to prospective employees.

    Pros

    If you do well, you will be paid well. A lot of cool people in the NY office. Good perks in NY office as well

    Cons

    Terribly boring. Call 150+ people a day, almost every single one doesn't want to listen to a word you have to say. Constantly calling recycled leads who have heard from HomeAdvisor very recently.

    Advice to Management

    Not much as this is the nature of the job. Stop recycling leads so frequently, a guy called 3 days ago isn't going to magically change his mind.
