    Pros

    If you have the right manager this place is ok to work for. Most people are stressed out 24/7 about losing their jobs and the upper management reminds you of it constantly.

    Cons

    If you don't sell, you're fired. If you DO sell and the contractor decides to turn off their leads before 24 hours, you could get fired. You have to lie to contractors and tell the what they want To hear and not what will actually benefit them. This place is a terrible place to work now and I would RUN far and fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop threatening our jobs even after we submit sales. Denied legals, leads off etc... OUT OF OUR CONTROL!!!

    Pros

    The little deli is nice, the campus is beautiful with some good excercise options. Parking is decent. Close to resturants. Hour lunches. Potential to make some good money.

    Cons

    Loud and childish. Management is more into being buddies then running things. I actually was made fun of for asking my co workers to please be quite while I was on the phone. My boss joined in. Tricycle races in the middle of the office make it so loud you can't even make calls during that time. If you are unable to make sales you are gone. I left because the stress was to much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a place of work. Treat it as such.

    Pros

    They try to do their best by offering lots of entertainment, like games or pizza days and cubicle decorating for holidays.

    Cons

    Those entertainment's don't do anything to add to the work or value. It gets boring fast, and upward movement is only for the mediocre. Plus, having the corporate team in the same building as customer service creates a decent amount of animosity and bitterness

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually make it engaging and useful. Don't be afraid when someone wants to learn.
