    Pros

    Fun young environment. Easy work hours (9-5:30).

    Cons

    Where do I begin? HORRIBLE management. Lack of communication. You're treated like a number and not valued. Constantly changing and don't give employees time to adapt bedore they threaten you with getting fired. The lack of a sustainable business plan is why there's such a high turnover. I don't see a bright future at all. Get out while you can.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like they're valued. Be more open to help you're team be successful. Give realistic goals to allow all to be successful.

    Pros

    Excellent insurance benefits and pay rate

    Cons

    Did not handle the customer inquiries. There was so much lack of discipline at the beginning that those who were disciplined towards the end got it bad. What kind of company doesn't excuse an employe with a legitimate doctors note? I understand the employees took advantage of the no discipline in the beginning, but it was so bad that supervisors advised their CSRs to apply for FMLA to avoid getting fired.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the favoritism and pay attention to everyone around you.

    Pros

    Worked here for over 3 years - benefit was work from home and one year made good money.

    Cons

    I was part of their massive layoff in November 2014 - actually see it as a blessing since this company is going no where but down. The management has no clue what they are doing and they kept people who were incompetent in their jobs so good luck with that. They still have not paid me all that is owed and doubt I will ever see that money again. Those who ran this organization drove it into the ground.

    Pros

    Inside Sales, decent culture, and very talented sales people on the floor. Unlimited snacks and there are a few decent managers who are actually knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Senior management is very disjointed and under-qualified. The quota is high and they assign large, prime territory to senior sales people. Most of the management is absolutely terrible and unqualified.

    Advice to Management

    Get some training for the managers. Being a sales rep that gets promoted should not automatically qualify someone to be able to manage other people.

    Pros

    They made some mistakes and laid a bunch of us off so turnover can potentially be high. Quotas were very high and hard to hit. They always did right by their employees. You can trust in this company too take care of you but they can make big mistakes that lead to lay offfs.

    Cons

    The company has not been profitable and rolls things out without thinking them through.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for being honest and ethical, awesome environment, please find a way to get profitable lots of people rely on you.
