Former Employee - Business Consultant in Houston, TX

Pros

Great business Model, Great benefits, Great bonuses until 2012 when the company laid off the sales force.
Freedom to work on your own
You used get support from the entire team.
POsitive environment as long as you hit your numbers, lots of appreciation.

Cons

They laid off the entire sales force,
New CEO changed the entire business mentality and Company started sinking.
New CEO is a Doctor and Attorney and has no clue how to operate a marketing company.
No base No benefits since July 2012
They make you learn and memorize a script like robots.
No career opportunities, I joined the company because they offered me many opportunities to become a manager or a field trainer. I busted my rear and never gave me that option. Instead they laid off the entire sales force.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management was great, really cool people to work for, VP and Regional Managers always very supportive and motivating.
Not much of micromanagement as long as you are responsible and achieve your goals.
No advice because there is no management any longer, everyone has been laid off.

    Current Employee - Account Manager  in  Arlington Heights, Cook, IL
    Current Employee - Account Manager in Arlington Heights, Cook, IL

    Pros

    The office is small and the sales floor has dim lighting. It can be quiet at times and the lighting can be soothing for the high demand and stress of the work. They have bagels on Wednesdays and fruit on Fridays. There is a basket of apples at the front counter every day.

    Cons

    But don't let this fool you. The pay scale is lower than the national average for the postion. If you break trend for anything longer then a bathroom break you are asked not to take any breaks at all. Every phone call, email, and follow up item are monitored and then criticized. The bonus package is paid out over six separate pay checks, or 3 months and turnover is huge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The advice I have for you to pay closer attention to restaurant owners and their feedback.
