    Must not really have a life other than work

    Senior Business Consultant (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsTraining is exellent if you can hack it. Very stressful.

    ConsYou travel constantly and I mean constantly, every week and get put in situations where you are not really wanted. Have to upsell your time to be recognized.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLoose the high pressure call center techniques. Your clients are stressed enough considering they are going bankrupt.

    SAM (Former Employee)

    Shady

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Buffalo Grove, IL

    ProsThe owner and son are good people even though it might not seem like it. There are a lot of good people in this company with good hearts who want things to be better but are afraid to speak up for change and feel stuck because they have stayed too long and don't want to let their friends/family down.

    ConsEveryone lies constantly. Management does not want to make changes to improve the flow of work or environment. Questionable leadership and ethics in key positions in the organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuestion your employees work, ethics and teamwork ability. If they lack, let them go!!! There are other fish in the sea!! Stop gauging people with the poor benefits structure! Pay people on time!!!!!!

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

    Historical View

    Senior Business Consultant (Former Employee)
    Columbia, SC

    ProsYou can make money there if, and only if, you are promoted.

    ConsObviously, this company operates under mulitple names for a reason. For the most part, its a boiler room operation. If you set up an "expert consultant" to come in, you may get assigned a consultant who is ineffective. The money is in the consultation, and the followup services.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEthics. Either you have it or you don't. Operating under multilple names, obviously means there's a LOT to be improved.

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

    Terrible management

    Sales & Marketing (Former Employee)
    Buffalo Grove, IL

    ProsTypically good paying job, but it depends on the position. You will always be busy, lots of work to do.

    ConsCompletely sales driven organization with no care for clients or their needs/cash flow. Although the pay seems high, the health benefits are horrible and very expensive. You pay for most of it on your own. There are no morals and ethics in this company.

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