    Pros

    when i first started, there seemed to be a positive work environment . but i was mistaken. this is not a happy place to be employed.

    Cons

    compensation is unclearn training is okay, but the systems used are old company culture is hostile.. i would not want to work there again

    Advice to Management

    create a report to show commission and sales speak positively around the office about employees you do not like. The General Manager talks about employees to other employees, and thinks they do not talk.. This is not a good employer

    Pros

    Great Co-workers and smaller offices so you get to know everyone fairly quickly. Quarterly meeting with cash bonuses.

    Cons

    No work/life balance, you are expected to work Monday-Friday 10+hours, eat lunch at your desk and never take a break. Often worked 12+hours and Saturdays as well. Management expected more and continuously pushed for higher numbers, more hours etc. without giving the tools or assistance to complete tasks. Bought most of my office supplies while working there without being reimbursed. Also there is, as previously stated, a lot of favoritism, you can be a top performer and management will still reprimand and yell. You can also be a poor performer and get fawned over. The management needs better training and there is no room for the growth that they claim. Also, EVERYONE is on a different pay scale doing the same job and new employees are often paid more than the seasoned employees. Bonuses can not be relied on and raises are rarely given.

    Advice to Management

    Better training all around especially at the branch manager levels and stop micro-managing. Provide the team the tools and assistance they need to do their job well and pay the ones who have been loyal decent pay.

    Pros

    - The office co-workers/recruiters were awesome. If it weren't for them, I would not have stayed. Period.

    Cons

    - Training was terrible. Received two weeks of role playing on the phone. My regional mgr went on my first three appts and I was by myself after. - Seems like every employee has a different pay plan. - Commissions are terrible (don't rely on them) - Micromanaged from higher up - Unrealistic expectations (KPI's) on weekly basis as well as having the same type of activities for each market when they are all different. - NO JOB SECURITY, they will fire you without hesitation or disciplinary action if you give her the slightest bit of doubt. They will fire you even if your a producer which makes no sense. - Extremely high turnover - Terrible benefits. Paid $500/per month on the cheapest HMO medical - Unobtainable budgets that you have to meet - Constant changes within company as well as their expectations for you - Old school methods of sales training - They talk about advancement opportunities when in reality, the regional managers are doing the same job as the sales force and not actually managing.

    Advice to Management

    The company talks about growing when you fire more people than you actually hire. Allow time for new employees who have never done staffing to develop their skills rather then firing them without warning or giving actions steps. Better train your new hires.
