    Pros

    It's exciting to have an impact and not just be a number at a bigger company. Everyone works hard and cares about what they do.

    Cons

    Most of the sales people come and go. It's getting much better over the past year but there have been some real questionable characters in there in the past. I guess that's just sales but I'm glad it's changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring better sales people.

    Pros

    The intent of the company is good in that they seek to create a large library of corporate trainings.

    Cons

    Because the quality of the content created is often poor and the vague purchase contracts used, too much time is spent by the company on collecting unpaid sales and asnwering customer complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of creating as much content as possible, focus on one piece at a time until it is complete and has been tested to be effective in the workplace.

    Keep investing in your employees and providing incentives to keep them motivated. Keep innovating and creating new products to satisfy our client base.

    Pros

    Hard working environment. People come and go and generally let you get your work done with minimal "office drama."

    Cons

    You are expected to earn your keep. There is very little down time and most everyone here is working hard all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure, perhaps they could be a little more personable with the employees. Managers are kind and friendly for the most part, but they are driven and focused on the end result. Perhaps they could loosen their collars a bit?

    Pros

    The offices in Tampa are centrally located.

    Cons

    The leadership constantly plays games with its staff as well as the general public. Style and image are key to them. Substance and true educational content come a very distant second.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the masquerade. You are over your heads. Find input from leaders in the industry and seek their advice because you have the beginnings of a good company but it will never thrive with the culture and mentality you have developed on your own.

    Pros

    You can develop experience that you can use at a more established company. This place is a decent stepping stone but you will not want to stay here long term.

    Cons

    Biggest problem is the company's BBB rating. It is hard for the sales team to overcome customer concerns when there are so many documented complaints against the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rename the company, again. Then make sure you develop and maintain strong relationships with your customers.

    other employees nice to work with.

    Cons

    Owner admittingly spoke out of both sides of his mouth. Admitted he knows nothing about sales but tried to tell you how to do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new owner

    Pros

    No oversight from supervisors so you can get away with doing little work.

    Cons

    NO chance for advancement as management is a long-term boys' club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't expect the company to grow given that you are getting about 20% of the true potential of your workforce.
