Pros

I cannot think of one "pro" for this company. From the start this company was a sinking ship, until they got de-listed from the stock market and had to change names.

Cons

Management and higher leadership positions do not know or care what bottom or even mid-level employees are doing, and manage from the top-down, not caring how or what it affects outside of their own limited view.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get some leadership education.

    Pros

    pay structure was decent. and you were given a fair ammount of leads and prior advertisers to work with.

    Cons

    very poor management with no support or room for growth. also no support for the advertising and branding of our product. just getting it acknowledged was an up hill battle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    support and work with your reps

    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.
