I worked at Local Lighthouse full-time (less than an year)

Pros

- Unlimited coffee and snacks
- Good salary for an entry level position
- Clean, comfortable offices, in good area of town
- Laid back atmosphere

Cons

- Basically a boiler room scam, focused on signing up clients rather than retaining current clients
- Repetitive, low quality work to meet the bare minimum requirements of each contract so the client can't pursue legal action to get their money back
- The guilt that arises from taking money from small family businesses all over the country while providing almost no value in return
- High employee turnover rate as they are fired or leave for legitimate opportunities
- No benefits

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Get a sustainable business model that isn't built on scamming small business owners who aren't internet savvy

    Pros

    You can make $100K if you can handle the stress of 100% commission. We sell a solution that is inexpensive and works. Unfortunately many previous and current employees believe the opposite leading to unnecessisarily sleazy sales practices.

    Cons

    Baby management team has multiple meeting per day that discuss failures vs. accomplishments resulting in a depressed sales team, and lower sales. Individual reviews discuss failures further depressing the team leading to additional decreased sales. If you can ignore the motivational management style you will make tons of money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take classes on how to inspire and lead a team. Pay for outside sales training and build a team of top sales performers. Stop concerning yourselves with the failures of underperforming team members. You will get a greater increase in sales by rewarding the top and creating a supportive environment other top sales performers want to join. You could have a team of professional $100K earners with a few minor adjustments
