    About to quit this Boiler Room!

    Sales (Current Employee)
    Tustin, CA

    Pros200 dollars per sale. After taxes $182

    Consscheduled hours, but NO hourly pay. Constantly being threatened to be fired , Micro managing. no employee appreciation.No Support, Poor Training. Little to no Positive feedback. It is always the employee's fault even when everyone doesn't get a sale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a communication class. Learn How to be good leaders. Negative Reinforcement Sucks, Try positive reinforcement You will get Further. Stop Micro Managing. Get leaders that actually know what they are doing. Put into management people that know how to sell a product more than one way. Show appreciation for your employee's

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

    Typical Boiler room. It is all about the grind and sales.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Tustin, CA

    ProsGreat Location. Paid weekly. Not a lot of Dailer or computer problems. The basic service provided are things business owners can get for themselves. But most do not know how to do it or the time.

    ConsPitch is 100% emotional sale. No real value. They do make sure the listings are currently submitted, but after client accepts the website they are charged for everything per the agreement. They reuse data over and over and prospective clients are pissed. Watch out for snakes in the Shark tank. High turnover for sales as well as clients

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your employees, and your clients. A company that takes advantage of the employees will do the same for their clients and vise versa.

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

    Local Lighthouse Gives SEO a Bad Name

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros- Unlimited coffee and snacks
    - Good salary for an entry level position
    - Clean, comfortable offices, in good area of town
    - Laid back atmosphere

    Cons- Basically a boiler room scam, focused on signing up clients rather than retaining current clients
    - Repetitive, low quality work to meet the bare minimum requirements of each contract so the client can't pursue legal action to get their money back
    - The guilt that arises from taking money from small family businesses all over the country while providing almost no value in return
    - High employee turnover rate as they are fired or leave for legitimate opportunities
    - No benefits

    Advice to Senior Management- Get a sustainable business model that isn't built on scamming small business owners who aren't internet savvy

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

    Love Coming To Work Every Day!

    Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
    Tustin, CA

    ProsWonderful place to work with the greatest co-workers and face to face interaction with all levels of management who encourage new ideas daily. They are always looking for ways to improve and growing rather rapidly as a whole. Nothing but great things in their future.

    ConsNeeds to offer employees more training and workshops and also more opportunities for growth in the company, which will more than likely be coming in the near future, as this company expands.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing! I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company.
