    I worked at Symplicity Corporation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You can acquire skills that will be beneficial in the future, and will prepare you to find another job. Other than that, it was a huge waste of my time.

    Cons

    First of all, the president/company is being investigated by the FBI, and customers often bring up the subject.
    This company only hires recent college grads, and takes advantage of them by paying them the lowest salary and giving them unrealistic loads of work and expectations.
    If you aren't near a metro, you have to pay $8 a day to park.
    President has no idea what is going on most of the time.
    Management is a joke - micromanaged to the max.
    Training does not exist.
    Very unprofessional atmosphere - the president and managers are constantly yelling and cursing while everyone in the office overhears them (even when you are on the phone with a customer).
    Most of the products are also a joke.
    Database not working half of the time - very frustrating.
    Overall, this company will make you hate your life 9-6 M-F.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where do I start? Hire more managers, be truthful during interviews, stop being cheap and purchase a functioning & reliable database, more communication is definitely needed., establish a training program,

    Pros

    Symplicity will immediately put you in a position to really learn and grow. You are thrown into situations that require strong work ethic and self-responsibility. At some organizations it takes years to direct sell, so the quick movement is great. It is also a very dynamic company with excellent products. There is also quite a bit of room to make your opinions known, which is amazing to have at such a young age.

    Cons

    Management is a nightmare to navigate. There is absolutely a culture of micromanagement, which is a four-letter word in this office. Furthermore, there are zero programming and training opportunities. Oftentimes you are not given the tools you need to succeed. Ultimately this is a bunch of 20 year olds training and managing other 20 year olds, which is a huge 'con.'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire a Sales Director. It is unheard of to have a sales organization without a leader. It is not conducive to a healthy, supportive, growth-oriented sales team.
