    I have been working at Fire Inc. Atlanta full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Since I've been working at Fire, I can honestly say that I've learned a lot about myself, as well as others. What really attracted me to this position was definitely the opportunity and how this is actually a management training program, rather than just a job. I started with the company with goals that I wanted to reach, and Fire Inc. has helped me achieve those goals and helped me grow as a person both professionally and personally. The environment at the company is amazing, probably the most positive work atmosphere I've been in. Everyone is so encouraging and uplifting to each other, and it pushes us to be the best that we can be. I love it!

    Cons

    Our office is in a great location, but we could use more room for campaign meetings.

    Pros

    Ever since I started at Fire, Inc. I have found a place where I want to come to work. Before, when my alarm clock went off, I dreaded driving through traffic and doing the exact same job each day. I had no way to advance in my career and while I liked some of my colleagues and my boss, there were some people that I didn't care for. I had to sit all day and stare at a computer screen and be told/corrected all day long. Remember that scene in Office Space where he is told 4 times about his TPS Reports? I lived that. At Fire, Inc. I have a place where people actually care about my success and genuinely want me to do well. My outlook and approach to life have definitely changed because of the constant personal and professional development.

    Cons

    It is difficult to speak of cons or challenges but no place is perfect. The days are sometimes long. However, at the end of a long day, all of my hard work and long hours are for me. The hours are for my benefit and/or growth. I advance and I dictate what I will become.

    Pros

    The company is very friendly and encouraging. Advancement is literally merit-based. It is a good job to start at or work temporarily.

    Cons

    With the nature of the business being sales, there are customers and work conditions that may frustrate you on any given day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Malcolm Elavia is an excellent CEO. Please keep doing what you are doing.

    I have been working at Fire Inc. Atlanta

    Pros

    The company provides all the necessities needed to grow and advance leadership skills. The interview was very hands on and allowed to me to see the in's and out's of the business. Being able to go out with one of the top account managers and shadow a full day made me feel so comfortable and involved. The day was exciting and time flew by! Management and staff are super friendly and upbeat.

    Cons

    My interviewer had many people to see so we moved quickly. Some clients we spoke too wanted us to stay longer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It was nice going out with the top rep of the office. Maybe having 2 reps together would help balance the time spent on the interviewee and the clients.

    Pros

    When I started here at Fire, Inc., this was not just another job, it was the beginning of a career. The people at Fire, Inc. are not only in the business for themselves, but are here for each others success. It is a very motivational place to work and it is a lot of fun. I always come to work with a smile on my face!

    Cons

    There are very few negative things about Fire. We could definitely use a bigger office space for one. Second, we could use a refrigerator as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up working hard and working with everyone for their opportunity! Great job!

    I have been working at Fire Inc. Atlanta full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Coming out of college I didn't have a lot of experience so I needed someone to give me a chance. At Fire Inc. I was able to get that experience that I didn't have. I ultimately had to leave the company due to having to move back home due to personal issues but I don't think I could have had a better experience. I learned a ton and I wish I still had the opportunity to work there.

    Cons

    The position is a fairly challenging position. The company attracts sharp motivated individuals and if someone is not looking for a career this wouldn't be the best for them. A person needs to expect that they are going to be tested and challenged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    High-energy and fun workplace. Great for young people looking to build sales skills or gain valuable experience.

    Cons

    They waaaay over-sell the opportunity! 100% commission based and you'll spend a TON of money on gas. Recruiting efforts are a little sleezy. Hours are weird and you end up spending 12 hours a day working 6 days a week. Incredibly high turnover!

    I have been working at Fire Inc. Atlanta full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The work environment is very upbeat, and senior management has a very "we're in this together" outlook, rather than treating their employees as inferior. Account managers in the company come from a diverse background, but are all extremely ambitious and work well together. The work atmosphere is very team-oriented. This is a very rewarding position for anyone who is motivated to grow as an individual and with a company.

    Cons

    We could use more office space... Our meetings often travel to the cafe across the street (not necessarily a bad thing...). It does get a bit crowded sometimes though. Also, I wouldn't complain if we added a bigger refrigerator.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set aside more time for meetings with employees.
