    Pros

    Excellent company with some of the best management I have ever encountered at any job. Genuinely good people who truly care about who you are, how you're doing, and want to help you succeed.

    Cons

    Advertising sales simply isn't for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. You are doing great things, and the company is changing in many positive ways.

    Pros

    You get to write your own paycheck. The environment is very positive-not "dog eat dog" like some sales organizations. You are selling something that is very niche and very branded--there is a demand before you begin your sales pitch. You can earn A LOT of money. Managers seem to be there to help rather than micromanage.

    Cons

    You are inside all day. You will be faced with rejection constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier for employees to learn from the best--maybe some contact with those who are handling relationships with the Associations.

    I have been working at Naylor

    Pros

    I worked directly with the VP of my department who was really great when it came to work/life balance and trusting me with new responsibilities.

    Cons

    Zero growth opportunity. Low pay. Nothing exciting about the work.

    Pros

    Naylor is like a family. Everyone is there to help (for the most part) and there is a lot of support from management and peers to succeed. There are a lot of company benefits and they are always doing something fun for the employees.

    Cons

    It is fast paced and you have to climb the social ladder to really excel.

    Advice to Management

    Allow equal opportunities for new reps.

    Pros

    Good Corporate values and compensation with many motivating contest as well as wonderful co-workers!
    Hours were flex which is convenient for those with other responsibilities such as family, etc.

    Cons

    Leadership and management had the highest turnover with total inconsistency in every respect.
    Management transitioned to a numbers company vs. employee focused. Became intolerable to simply arrive at work daily due to the stress related to impossible goals with financial loss should you be unable to attain!
    Would never recommend this company to
    ANYONE~

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to remember what the core values as well as ethical employee treatment!

    Pros

    Flexible work shift, informative training, great work location

    Cons

    In the interview you're told that some people are making over 6 figures. That's actually true, their are two individuals to 3 individuals that they absolutely cherish and they get all of the old accounts that you worked your butt off to close in your short time working there. Everyone is married to someone there and it's a very weird culture. It's a great place to work to gain some experience and challenge your sales ability. It's also good if you need something to put some cash in your pocket for a while until you find a career focused sales job. The training was good and so are the choice of work hours.

    Also, what I hated about my job is I had to take go home to find leads to call after working. You're always researching leads to call. If you don't find your own leads you're screwed and you cannot meet the call volume daily quota.

    However, I would not recommend this company if you are seeking something long term and stable. Naylor gets pretty stressful after your first full month and your job is definitely threatened after about 90 days. Also, for me I am not good at selling advertising on a project I don't believe in so it's hard to make your commission. You may get 1 decent project and the rest are projects that the seasoned reps reject. Sometimes you are not given enough projects to make your ever increasing monthly goal.

    Don't get sucked in. The staff that's been there for a while are tight knit and are very phony. They care nothing about you. But hey, Naylor seems like they are no different in culture than any other large company out here. No one seems to care anymore.

    Advice to Management

    You've had the opportunity to be blessed with seasoned and new talent. I mean a lot of those people can sell their butts off. Unfortunately none of it matters to you because for some reason people are nothing more than a number. You use them for the miles you can get out of them and you go on to the next and the cycle repeats. I guess that's working for you! Also, you need to set realistic sales goals because people cannot make a living long-term from the base salary.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, a product you can believe in and a job you can be proud of. I am very happy with this company and there is tons of opportunity and room for advancement.

    Cons

    It's a very complicated job that can feel overwhelming at times, but management is very patient and helpful and genuinely invests themselves in your success.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, there is a reason this company has been around so long and is an industry leader
