Pros

Very stable job. People thought you were weird if you worked nights and weekends.

Cons

Company has adversarial relationship with its customers. There is a huge cultural disconnect between the sales organization and the marketing teams.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on creating long-term shareholder value over quarterly earnings.

    Pros

    Potential for making good money

    Cons

    -During training, you are explicitly instructed to sell as you were trained and not to do any research into the amount of searches or leads that are truly in that area.
    -We were instructed to tell a potential client that we could increase their contacts to 30-50 per month if they followed the exact plan (which is virtually impossible to follow). While doing research on the actual amount of searches for their area of expertise, you may find that they only truly have 5 searches on a monthly basis within 50 miles of their location. How exactly can you ethically sell to this person?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the truth, nothing more, nothing less
