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

    Dissatisfied with life and social balance not to mention they claim they never pay base salary and never did.

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

    Pros

    Great coffee maker and smiles.. ugly ones , but smiles, nice locations and decent equipment , pay is set but real closers would prefer better options

    Cons

    They never pay base pay and don't discuss comfort at work . Argumentative from senior staff about owed pay. Dress code a little high for a casual call center and cut your tie... what for?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get time sheets right, and don't cut ties.

    We do not pay base pay, it is commission only with most sales reps making 5k-10k a month.
