Pros

The only pro? It's a job, so it pays the bills (somewhat).

Cons

Everything. Management, employee drama, gossip, rumors, poor pay, poor training, poor compensation. Why am I still here?

Advice to Management

Stop gossiping and being in everyone else's business. Your gossip in turn makes everyone else think it's acceptable. Managers are supposed to help employees learn and grow, but you're doing the exact opposite. A quick fix in management would change this company around quickly. Get rid of the negative and promote those of us that are still positive, and this company may have a chance. You're losing employees left and right solely because of the management - they are the issue.

    Pros

    Free food and some local travel.

    Cons

    The amount of income was way over stated. What they called leads were nothing but lists. Very high turn over, most employees last only a couple of weeks before they figure out they were scamed.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest about the job and don"t try to fool people into working for you.

    Pros

    flexible schedule, good family life.

    Cons

    Commission only. If you work hard you will be able to make a small living. I have had a chance to interact directly with the owner of the company. Unfortunately, employees are just a number. When I was hired there were about 100 reps, the entire time I was with TLP every week they have a new hire training with 10-20 new reps at the end of my employment 1 year later, there were less than 100. The turn over is crazy. No gas reimbursement. Everyone cares about number 1.

    Advice to Management

    Kelly, you need to take care of your employees a little better or your success will not last. Stop showing off and teach your employees.
