    Pros

    Location, management team, hours, flexibilty, opportunity for advancement is very high. Value promoting from within.

    Cons

    Expectations are unreasonable at times. They demand the world sometimes and it doesn't seem they understand what we are really going through.

    Advice to Management

    Top producers in CS need better treatment and the raises they deserve!

    Pros

    40 hours a week, not an hour more or less. Good people at the office, easy to meet and make friends. Awesome training and support if you're new to sales. If you're happy talking on the phone all day for very LOW OTE, then this is a good start.

    Cons

    Where to start? Since we've gone public, making money is virtually impossible. Each month the quotas double, but the payout remains the same. Because you're getting paid hourly, commissions (bonus) each month gets taxed at 40%! If you hit quota, you can expect to make $1350. But what do you end up with after taxes? $800. Given that 50% of the floor did not hit quota last month, you will decelerate very quickly from that amount.

    A 24k base with this kind of commission is ridiculous. You will have to have a phenomenal year to break 40k. Don't let their company culture fool you into thinking people are happy. Their top sales rep has already left. This company values short term gain over long term sustainability. They reward sales reps for setting agents up with bad programs that don't do anything for their business. I've sold over 80 agents. I can count on one hand the real estate agents who are genuinely satisfied with the product.

    Advice to Management

    Management/supervisors are getting paid to do absolutely nothing. Cut them loose. They are useless. Most supervisors couldn't close a deal if their life depended on it and don't know the product. Brainwashing your reps into drinking the kool aid isn't working. No one is happy.
