Pros

It's nice to be able to work my own schedule. The training was thorough and the people are nice.

Cons

I would recommend negotiating for higher rate of pay. I know that some people, and not necessarily the top performers, have negotiated a higher hourly rate. There are constant threats from management regarding performance and numbers. This feels much more like a sales job - getting your quota - than an interviewing position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your interviewers. Raise your pay to industry standards . Stop threatening your workers with the possibility of being let go because they haven't been able to "convince" people to do an interview. We all know that in this economy that there are people waiting to take our job. We don't need to be reminded of this every two days.

    Academic. Cannot advance in position without Masters Degree or Phd.

    More diversity in senior management. Senior management is comprised of white males and white females.
