High pressure

Media Consultant (Former Employee)
Colorado Springs, CO

ProsAdequate insurance benefits, good opportunity for someone who needs exposure to and/or enjoys cold calling business to business. Name recognition. One can make a moderate living, but, as in many of today's sales environments, very high pressure to perform with minimal support.

ConsRequires high pressure sales approach, products overpriced and underperforming, requires considerable windshield time and 20% overnight travel. Minimal reward for performing.

Advice to Senior ManagementProducts need to be closer to the cutting edge and more comprehensive.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The worst mistake of my life

    Account Executive (Former Employee)

    I worked at hibu full-time for less than a year


    Pros: Taught me what I don't want out of a job. Cons: The training was very high-pressure and rigourous, yet taught me very little. Antiquated selling practices, (in-peron cold calling) and products (Print Yellow Book). Extremely difficult… Advice to Senior Management: People don't use the book anymore, time to move on. More
