    I worked at Impole full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It was a job, i did learn a decent amount about how to engage people via the phone. This company is like a cross between inside sales and market research, kind of a strange niche. There are no promotions, you get projects, you do the projects,

    Cons

    Tiny little company, the true definition of a "mom and pop shop" run by a husband and wife, who can be volatile to one another, and to employees. They want you to live and die for their company, however, you are not compensated in such a fashion.

    Pros

    Some great people at Impole.

    Uncertain work environment for employment and compensation. Older computer software and hardware makes getting the job done difficult. Family run business can be intense.

    I worked at Impole part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Launching pad for better opportunities at other organizations, flexible with being out of office if needed, have office room to yourself.

    Cons

    Does not pay employees for 5+ weeks sometimes, part time hours vary and employees are notified on a day to day basis -- sometimes the morning of work (instability), no sick days allotted, unrealistic sales quotas expected, tube monitors, very old computers, Microsoft Office 97, no career advancement, can't WFH, penny pinchers, company morale is horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees on time or you should not be operating a business. Listen to fresh ideas rather than stifling them. Pretend you (the owners) are not related -- it's not professional to literally scream at each other in the hallways when people are trying to work.

    - Higher-ups can be very unprofessional at times, screaming matches in the hallway are not uncommon
    - Intra-company communication can be poor at times, very little transparency by management

    Don't make big promises that are immediately reneged on
