    I have been working at LegalZoom.com full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Christmas party, bagels on Friday, free soda, fellow employees,

    Cons

    1. Temp agency was extremely misleading about conversion times; was quoted 3 months when in reality most folks saw 6-9 months if converted at all. Keep in mind, there are no benefits in the meantime. The vast majority either quit or are dropped before being converted.

    2. Hours inconvenient. Have many folks forced to work Sat-Wed now, which was certainly not the case for the last 6 months.

    3. Company behaves as a cult with regards to its sales model, which is extremely awkward and impersonal. Any dissent is exceedingly frowned upon, and the leader is out there... to say the least. many people I know personally pretend to support it enthusiastically for fear that they will be fired.

    4. Management keeps minimal communication with employees (besides the routine and copious emails and handouts with new tasks to tack on to the actual sales part of the job). And no, quarterly town hall meetings don't count either.

    5. Despite being remarkably distant, several employees I know (including myself) have been absolutely reamed by managers in the most condescending and viscous way for one month of slightly off-color numbers, despite previous success. Not all managers fall into this category, though.

    6. Repeatedly (daily) forced to choose between my job and violating personal ethics by misleading customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pretending that you take employees' opinions into account and stop running the place like a sweat shop.
