Pros

None - all lies. They just want you to drink the kool-aid (that's their words)

Cons

They tell you that you will be an employee and tell you what the commission is. They day you start your job you find out you are not an employee, you are a temp. No vacation pay, no benefits, no holiday pay, NOTHING. You don't even get access to the building until you "drink the kool-aid". You have to call people at the office to let you in. The big kicker is that they don't pay you commission until you are an employee. So far, only some of the manager are employees. They lie, lie lie. They say "after 3 mos, if you prove yourself, you will become an employee, then they say a year. Turns out NONE of the salespeople are employees, and some have been there over a year.

Advice to Management

Stop lying and be honest. Tell people before they quit their jobs, that they will not be an employee and will not make commission.

    Pros

    Great downtown location
    Wonderful people to work with
    Good product
    Professional and fun regional managers
    Startup company with flexibility

    Cons

    Every sales rep is a temporary employee for a year (regardless what they tell you). As a temp:
    No benefits
    No parking
    No security
    No PTO
    No vacation pay
    No access to the building
    No commission (until proven worthy)

    In the hiring process they tell you great things and expect a lot. To receive the benefits and get hired on as an employee, you have to prove your loyalty and trust and hope you can stick around long enough to see it happen.

    Advice to Management

    Expect employees to deliver on performance, and you deliver on your side with basic employment needs.

    Completely disappointing- wish I had stayed at my previous job, as bad as it was.

    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers for the most part.
    Managers are very friendly and encouraging as well.
    They invent fun ways of motivating people to sell.
    Awesome location of you enjoy the city (three blocks or so from City Creek).
    Gym membership discount after your first 90 days.
    Fun environment.

    Cons

    -Total chaos when plans do not go accordingly, which is often.
    -Absolutely no training to speak of. They did start doing once a week training before I left, but it wasn't much help.
    -You have to research your own leads for the most part. They do send you some, but the point is to get through to huge companies, which is a very difficult thing to do.
    -No follow through on promises. They talk a good talk, but have never been able to walk the walk. When I started they tried to make up for the $11.00 an hour that they pay by saying that you will be "eligible" for commission after 90 days, but after that point they tell you that you haven't "earned" your commission yet.
    -It seems that they make up rules when it becomes convienant for them. Such as the above mentioned "earning" of commission on items that you have sold.
    -No parking, so in the very least you'll pay $3.00 per day (two blocks away) or $7.00 per day to park in the parking garage behind the building, unless you buy a parking pass, which wouldn't be very smart because of the high turnover rate that occurs there.
    -No access to the floor. You will have to find a buddy that has an access key and arrives before you so that you can call them to let you in- every day!
    -No over time.
    -Every employee is a temporary employee for the first year and only after you have "proven" yourself to them, although they do not tell you that when they hire you.

    Advice to Management

    -Follow through on your promises.
    -Don't act like your company has it all together when it does not.
    -Be honest with people you are hiring. It really stinks and feels shady when you find out that you're a temporary employee after being hired.
    -Give your employees (even temporary ones) parking or a train or bus pass! It gets expensive when you have to pay for it every day!
    -Hire a training team, they really are worth it and your employees would be better prepared to do good work with some positive training behind them.
    -Find a better human resources manager. Your current one is nice, but your hiring practices needs more work.
    -Improve on communications among your sales people. Because of the constant change in plans it is difficult to keep up with what is current and what is out of date.
