    Pros

    The longer you can stick around and keep selling with out getting fired the more accounts you will get and the more money you will make.

    Cons

    Management was weak at the time I was there, But it is much better now. I got pushed into a different position because of a couple bad sales moments and ended up having to quit.

    Pros

    Convenient to freeways, as well as centrally located.

    Cons

    Absolutely hate the micro-managing! You're answering up to 6 different people at a given time. In addition, you're not encouraged to think for yourself, but management wants you to act like robots. Environment can be very toxic too.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing people!

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere; challenging; fun competition

    Cons

    Leads came in form of people under the impression they were actually applying for a job in IT with training, vs. them actually being interested in paying to work towards their IT certifications. I felt it was unethical.

    Advice to Management

    Show integrity with your ads; process of obtaining leads for the ECs.

    Pros

    The office was close to my house. For the time being they made payroll on time. Other than that, nothing.

    Cons

    Best to just list them:
    1) After exceeding Q4Y15 sales goal by 173% they cut my base pay $2,500. Reward for a job wee done.
    2) Complicated commission structure designed to cheat the employee. When I was shorted $800 of commission and questioned it was told "Don't worry about last quarter and focus on this quarter".
    3) Many 3rd party vendors are severing agreements with New Horizons including Cisco, VMWare and Microsoft.
    4) Company is cheap, no expense reimbursement.
    5) All major accounts (accounts where you could possibly make a living), are handled by a select few who have been there forever.
    4) The back stabbing co-worker are the worse.
    5) Can't deliver the product because got rid of half the instructors to start 2015.

    Advice to Management

    Don't rip off to many clients before you close the doors.

    Pros

    None - Ok it's an inside position where you are out of the weather elements but that's about all I can think of.

    Cons

    They are nothing more than a GI Bill Thief. They teach their sales people to lie, cheat and steal. The classes they offer are minimally effective and the placement support is non existent

    Advice to Management

    Get some integrity and stop stealing
