2 years experience in technology consulting and small business services

Sales Specialist (Current Employee)

ProsEasy going atmosphere. Fairly young staff, primarily PT college students keep it lively. Diverse client base and loyal customers due to sincere desire to serve their needs.

ConsVery little opportunity to advance. Those who express interest are routinely discouraged. No apparent effort to help staff members move up. And in an environment where wages are so poor, if you're not moving up you might as well move out.

Advice to Senior ManagementHelp your staff to develop and move up. Advocate for those who are worthy of advancement into positions of greater responsibility. Many staff members are depressed at stagnation in wages, and real sense its a dead end.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
