Former Employee - AREA SALES MANAGER in Tulsa, OK
Former Employee - AREA SALES MANAGER in Tulsa, OK

I worked at Regus full-time (more than an year)

Pros

benefits are good, growing company (so they say)

Cons

pay levels are below standard for each position. "Micro" managing is at a level that is completely impossible to keep up with their demands, especially in a sales position. Like another person said below, they want robots not employees.
 Higher level management is unethical and send mix signals constantly to their teams. There seems to be anger management issues in this company when sales goals are not met and they come down on you in a very personal way. Run, dont walk...away from this company. They SAY they are growing which maybe they are but if they keep scaring off employees at this rate, there will be nothing left. This is a very hostile place to work!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that your employees are only human and dont jump all over them personally because of one thing they did wrong. Be tactful and NICE and SUPPORTIVE to your employees and maybe they will stay around longer. Your company is not EVER going to grow with the attitude that is currently in this company. People are your most valuable asset!

    Current Employee - Client Services Representative in New York, NY

    I have been working at Regus full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some locations have very nice clients. Good networking opportunity with clients. Leave at 5, no work

    Cons

    No opportunity for growth. Each center only has 3 employees, making it very difficult to move up. Company raves about you being able to move around (to different locations) within the company but in reality this will only happen if it will benefit THEM. Company doesn't give you ANY freedom, down to the color shirt you are allowed to wear. No official Uniform so they do not have to give you clothing stipend or pay for uniform but there is an extremely strict "Dress code", Suits required every single day- Suits can only be Black/ Blue/ Brown/ Grey worn with a light colored (pastel/ white- NO PATTERNS) shirt. Shoes can only be the same color- no peep toe. Nail Polish can only be muted or pastel colors. WARNING: If you are hired and DO NOT own these items-- do not work here, it is not worth the TIME/ MONEY/EFFORT. Required to clock in and clock out including for your 1 hour lunch break (which is MANDATORY). No sick/ personal days. NO RAISES unless you are promoted (which is unlikely in a timely fashion since team consists of 3 people). Hourly pay and NO OVERTIME WHATSOEVER. If you are required to work a late conference they will give you hours off elsewhere if it goes over 40hrs/week because of REFUSAL to pay overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees and realize they are human beings and not robots.

    Former Employee - Reservations Agent in Addison, TX

    I worked at Regus full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    No drug test, easy promotions, good pay for little or no experience, a lot of locations to work,

    Cons

    Horrible management, inconsistent with policies, unfair treatment of employees, make up policies as they arise, management changes almost every other month, always feel like our job is on the line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs training on how to manage employees. Stop promoting people based on personal feelings and start promoting on work ethic and qualifications. Use lower level employees to help improve the business since they are the people actually doing the work. It may improve the revenue and the moral of the company.
