    Pros

    Nothing gets you pumped other than a DJ playing Rhianna first thing in the morning and it does not hurt either when your floor manager decides to buy everyone Starbucks or Taco Bueno for breakfast... Because everyone knows coffee is for closers Other than the food to get you motivated everyone that you work with has an awesome personality, some of the best coworkers I've ever had. The work day can go pretty fast when you are having fun and making lots of money but remember someone is always out to take your seat, do not get too comfortable.

    Cons

    Stick it out. Smile and Dial...Don't be afraid of the phone and ask for the sale!!!

    Pros

    Casual dress was nice, somewhat stocked break room, and hit music playing all day. A couple rad people worked here in the Utah office. Jordan and Melissa are awesome. It was fun to learn a little about many different industries as projects would change. The office was young and hitting new office sales records would bring free lunch the next day. It's also really close to the new outlets at Traverse MT.

    Cons

    Dis-honest sales practices. This is a dog-eat-dog sales environment. Management does little to stop the Dallas reps from snagging your hot leads. Over my time here, I watched as all the top earners left because management did nothing to keep them there. Commission on high dollar products went from 10% down to 7% and that is just the beginning. All they want to do if fill seats and then they wonder why the turnover is so high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave before MV gets you for life. You don't want to say you still work for MV when you hit 40.

    Pros

    Great and fun company to work for. Great people, good commission rate.

    Cons

    Loud music during your sales calls. You're pounding the phones all day. Leads contacted multiple times a day by different sales reps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good job keeping employees happy, find a way to better allocate leads so they aren't always mad at the company.

    I worked at MultiView

    Pros

    Good opportunity to earn

    Cons

    Would be nice if they communicated better. I did not know what my quota was for basic product until the month they put me on plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let me sell Programmatic advertising. I had a passion for it

    Pros

    Great youthful atmosphere. Company sponsored outings are fairly regular, incentives are daily.

    Cons

    High demand and little to no "wiggle room" if demands are not met. Good luck talking with any supervisor about changing positions within the company. They see that as a sign of you not wanting to work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone is different and works/learns differently. Invest in your employees by getting to know them and identify their unique strengths and weaknesses. Help them address those weaknesses and make them a better person for it.

    I worked at MultiView full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Expand your network as you look for a better job with other employees. Get good at making a ton of calls to companies that are being hit up by 10 other people at the same time.

    Cons

    Worst company that I have ever worked for. Horrible service. Greedy management. Micromanage like a hawk. No room for growth. Very unprofessional culture. Employees are treated horribly. Expect you to work a lot of overtime with no overtime pay. I have been very successful in sales, but I could not bring myself to offer such a horrible product that most clients get nothing out of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some time away from counting your money and maybe genuinely care about your employees. Little stupid spiffs and perks do not give you the right to treat people like slaves.

    Former Employee - Business Media Sales Specialist in Irving, TX

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

    Pros

    A great place to network given that the turnover rate is huge. Fun, young, and vibrant culture. Ping pong tables and bean bags.

    A good place to work for 6 months to a year if you need a job and experience. Decent compensation.

    Cons

    Probably one of the only call centers that blasts rap music in the background while sales representatives are talking to clients. It's hard to work around megaphones, clappers, constant screaming. Worn out databases. Consistent micromanagement. When they hire you they will tell you your hours are 7:30am to 4:30pm but most days are until 5pm (unpaid overtime). Constant restructuring. Non-existent job security and a culture of fear. I was hired over a summer with 100 people and one year later there were about 6-7 sales reps left from that group.

    Employees treated poorly.
    Minimal upward mobility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster a culture of cohesiveness- communication between managers and employees.

    The culture that we have fostered at MultiView is unique and certainly not for those who like to sit in an office with no atmosphere and no camaraderie.

    Pros

    Decent base pay, frequent incentive spiffs, good location, nice office space. Good experience for digital media/marketing.

    Cons

    The best compensated reps leave in droves, including management - terrible churn for both the high performers and the low performers. Significant micromanagement. Constant restructuring. Not a career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better planning, better communication. Conduct performance reviews at some point. Implement some form of compensation structure built around consistent performance and professional development.

    Pros

    For creative jobs, MultiView actually compensates pretty well. The work-life balance is great as well; Most jobs in design or editorial don't offer great benefits, so the holidays off and PTO are extremely rewarding.

    Cons

    The environment is so obnoxious. They keep the Inside Sales Reps running by blasting music nonstop and encouraging weird, loud activities to keep people alert. It's not conducive at all. They are also are rolling out lay-offs to sales and Newsbriefs departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better. We have no idea what's going on half of the time. "Great company culture" will not keep people around.
