Pros

You can wear shorts to work. If you like loud rap music and F Bombs being dropped by management, this place is for you!

Cons

Poor middle management and outdated sales methods. Scripts!? Seriously??
High turnover - 1 out of every 10 that start each month actually stay.
Training should be given by qualified and knowledgeable professionals in the the sales field, not any one who has closed a deal with this company.
No work/life balance - hours are 8-5 Monday-Friday and are paid as such, but middle management "suggests" you work 7-6 and Saturdays.
150 calls a day is the minimum

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Restructure the sales department and hire qualified sales reps.
Hire a sales manager who is motivated by the long term success of the company, not just what he can do in the next few years to earn his stock.
Stop paying your reps to write good reviews on this site.
Advertise the inside sales role as a outbound cold caller.

    If your someone who doesn't take their career seriously and put everything into what you do look for a 9-5 somewhere else. Personally I believe this is the perfect place for someone who is devoted and wants to be successful. No cons!!
