I worked at Main Street Hub full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Casual atmosphere - No dress code, snacks, a keg of beer in the office, and music playing all the time. Great salary, benefits, commissions and bonuses. The people that work at MSH are awesome !! This is a fast growing company well on the way to big, big things very soon.

Cons

I can't think of any cons.

Advice to Management

The people that run this company are amazing. They are open to hearing suggestions and feedback from everyone in the company on how to make things better all the time. The transparency and interoffice communication is phenomenal.

    I have been working at Main Street Hub full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone in the company is fairly young so it is easy to make friends with co-workers. There is a keg in the office as well as margarita machines. The location of the offices are really great.

    Cons

    The quota for sales seems "fair" yet only 3-4 people in the company actually hit it each month. They will literally hire anyone in the sales department. They do not care if you've been to college or been to jail; sometimes it seems they prefer the latter. That being said, they choose to use threats as a form of motivation and claim that they have never fired anyone. What they do instead is push employees to the edge so that they voluntarily quit. They lie to new hires and tell them that they can be promoted within 3 months and in reality, they prefer to hire managers from the outside. They have even demoted managers to sales associates. This is a very high stress environment and Main Street Hub does not make their employees feel valued.

    Advice to Management

    We constantly hear that upper management's main goal is having a great company culture. If that is truly the case, then perhaps having a two way conversation with your employees will be beneficial. Right now, management is using fear based tactics and threats to "motivate" which leads employees to foster a feeling of resentment towards the company. I have seen several long-time employees quit due to how unappreciated they felt. Also, it always seems that management is very secretive which causes employees to raise questions and doubt the company.

    I worked at Main Street Hub full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Great office location. Fridge full of food and a keg on tap. Decent spiffs for sales people.

    Cons

    Culture of fear coming from upper management that trickles down to lower management and is felt by all. Empty words about what the culture is compared to what it actually is. A lack of respect exists between upper management and employees. Upper management repeatedly demonstrates that the needs/feelings/opinions of their employees are not important. Lots of justification and excuses for any mistakes made. Those at the top act entitled to respect and loyalty from their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Genuinely apologize. Never place blame. Never admit fault either and be specific and stick to the facts. Emphasis on the genuine.
