Pros

Collaborative environment. Execs who take the time out of their day to listen and help front line employees. Hard-working and fun-loving teammates. Feels like the company is headed in a great direction.

Cons

Stressful environment - but not unique from any other early stage startup.

    Boring job with little to no room for growth and too many cooks in the kitchen

    I have been working at Main Street Hub full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Managers try really hard to keep people motivated
    decently stocked fridge
    if you're willing to absorb information, you are given tons of nuggets of valuable information
    nice team environment
    company has a ton of potential

    Cons

    -ridiculously low base salary. $36,000 to start and the most you can make is about $56,00 after getting promoted based on sales, which is starting for most decent start up companies
    -conflicting direction from different managers who probably aren't qualified for most companies
    -bottom of the barrel employees who can't get real jobs elsewhere
    -terrible leads given to newbies that lead to a dead end and frustrated employees.
    -managers only care about who high call volume, not quality of calls
    -day to day is incredibly boring and not challenging for any intelligent employee. All you do all day is cold call and log your calls.
    -if you don't make sales after one month and they don't like you, you will be fired.
    -management expects you to call people and basically get their credit card for something they can do themselves.

    Before I got hired, I checked Glassdoor and I really should have listened to what people had to say because they were dead on. If you are looking for a real career, I would suggest not working here because this job is suited for entry level, just out of college newbies that don't know any better. If you have real qualifications, your talents would be better put to use at a company that will value you and your talents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -invest more in your employees
    -fully vet out all employees before hiring them, including checking references, to avoid turnover
    -make employees want to work for you by offering competitive salaries and benefits that are consistent with other sales jobs in the area
    -give new employees better leads so they aren't pulling their hair out in frustration.

    Challenging Entry Level Role

    I worked at Main Street Hub full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent entry level position for someone looking to get into sales. There is a lot of training, cool people, and the company has ambitious goals. There is a demand for this type of service as well. Some of what the other people said is true, just remember inside sales is tough. Best sales prizes I have ever heard of/seen.

    Cons

    The compensation is ok for a entry level role, but even people who do really well need to paid more. Since the office only has 20 or so reps and a few managers, it is easy for negative people to be cancerous and complain. The people who tend to complain and say negative things are either naive or just plain sour. Also, the sales talent in the Austin office is a not good. It's a tech start up with big goals, deal with it. The goals are set a little too high, but nothing impossible. Everyone seems a little over worked as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better. The culture is suffering due to terrible hires, the the executives. I have never heard of any company having a "set career path" that is just laid out for you. This is not college. Also, the monthly quotas should be reduced slightly, and bonuses should be increased. Executives should also be more transparent. Also, when explaining this opportunity to candidates, be honest with them that in order to advance, it is going to take hard work and time. It seems that a lot of people think that 3 months of employment at MSH means they are entitled to "more/new opportunities".
