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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    The concept was a good idea.

    Cons

    Find myself paying for useless leads. Get leads that should never have been in the system. From experience and hind sight the conflict of interest is now very evident. Will never talk positive about Service Magic or Home Advisor.

    Just think I get $50 bucks for sending a contractor info for a job that will never happen, oh wait if I send it to 4 contractors I get 4 x $50 = $ 200 were do I sign upppppp.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
