    Pros

    Awesome Working Environment! Great Manager, great Pay and employee benefits

    Cons

    Getting deals approved through underwriting are very tough in this industry. You hired to go out and sell the customers and then you are challenged with the internal selling process of getting the clients approved to come onboard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    being more leniant on client deals for approval, but all in all this is the industry we work!

    No respect for their employees.

    I have been working at Oasis Outsourcing full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Their product is very flexible so it makes it easier to sell compared to other PEOs. Their commission package is very attractive because the more you sell the more commissions and excelerators kick in.

    Cons

    They treat their employees poorly. They fire people without warning, the sales people are penalized on their commission for selling business that is beyond the worker's compensation scope however Oasis still capitalizes on the administrative fees. Supervisors, manager and executive are all sleeping around. Creates a hostile environment to work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforce the direct supervisor dating policiy

    Pros

    Work/Life balance and immediate management is good.

    Cons

    Commissions do not work out to be as claimed. No leads until you bring in business and leads are not very good. The people that have been there the longest, have 99% of the professional relationships and networks all tied up (they are permanently named to these people). These professional relationships are absolutely needed to drive business to the rep. These reps are the ones that will always make club and there are only a small percentage of people that can go.. Otherwise is a very difficult and hard road for the new hire to bring in business and achieve quota.. They also hire and fire easily- big turnovers in sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Visionary CEO and knows the business very well. Advice would be to help new hires get off the ground with something other than bad training

    Pros

    Good PTO and Dental coverage. Great culture, the OP office was awesome. I would still be there if they had not closed the office.

    Cons

    Health insurance premiums were higher than any other place I had worked. So high, I couldn't afford to cover my kids.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider lowering the Health Insurance premiums.

    Pros

    Meeting celebrities if you consider that a pro.

    Cons

    Pay, hours, expectations, management, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start all over, hire new management. Reform must come from the very top, there is too much corruption in a glorified gift shop.

    Pros

    Pleasant co-workers, health insurance and benefits, a job. This requires a 20 word minimum but I cannot think of any more positive words about this company.

    Cons

    Poor training, poor management, constant turnover most likely due to horrible training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise your standards.

    Oasis is a decent company but there is little support and ZERO training for their sales team.

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

    Pros

    Solid company. Good benefits. Decent culture...but very corporate and impersonal. If you know how to sell, they will roll out the red carpet and you can literally do WHATEVER you want.

    Cons

    There is zero training for new sales people. There is a 3 or 4 day orientation at the headquarters in West Palm Beach but its and intro to the company, what they do, and the people you'll interact with as a sales person. But, there is ZERO sales training if you're new to PEO. You get a cubicle, some business cards, and you're thrown in the deep end to sink or swim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First and foremost, training for sales people new to PEO. Second, require all independent producers to work directly with District Managers in each city...instead of working directly with the sales reps. The DM's could then farm out the work on a deal-by-deal basis to all their sales people, based upon whatever criteria makes the most sense, rather than just based upon seniority. Currently, the older sales people simply inherit the IP relationships over time and then sit on them and milk them...rather than driver new relationships and new sales channels. There would certainly be complications but in the end, it would work better and prevent the "diva" sales people in PEO from holding the company hostage and threatening to leave and take the IP to with them.

    I have been working at Oasis Outsourcing full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay and nice coworkers.

    Cons

    District Managers do not help the PEC's. Focus is driven on number of first meetings each week (you need a minimum of 6) instead of helping/building the consultants up. This is a boiler room type of sales job and if you don't have certain numbers by month 6, they fire you. The company has "favorites." If you're not one of them, you get no help. There is no room for growth/advancement. It takes most sales consultants 6+ months to get a deal, if you even get one. My advice, don't work for this company unless you need a paycheck for 6 months. I left and took a $10,000 pay cut to get out of the nightmare that was Oasis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would do background checks on your District Managers and listen to the consultants when they come to you or the RVP's with concerns. It's not all about the numbers, we're sales people, we need a fun/exciting atmosphere to build us up, not a grind house.

    I have been working at Oasis Outsourcing full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flat management, open communication, excellent benefits, great pay, plenty of opportunity for an upward career path, company has integrity and does right by clients, employees and their families as well as the community. Management values employees and their opinions. Constant promotion from within. Employee opinions regularly sought and acted upon.
    Oasis has on countless occasions assited employees or their families in times of crisis and tragedy. This is a small company getting biggish, but not losing it's soul in the process.
    The year of Katrina, Oasis collectively chose to forgo its annual holiday party and donate the budget to victims and recovery. Since that year, that same budget is distributed among nonprofit clients annually. Oasis partners with and sponsors it's client's fundraisers; Humane society, various Chambers of Commerce, charitable organizations and community outreach.

    Cons

    Having grown by 75% over the past 8 years, technology has been added on as needed rather than overhauled. Largely visible on employee side, Clients do not see or experience the lags. The overhaul began summer of 2013 with major technology investments. Streamlined processes are evolving and being implemented througout, management and shareholders are completely committed to evolution. Lots of light on this issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think evertything that needed to change in terms of management has happened within the past year. The few who needed to go are gone and the new CTO and COO are top flight. Certain veteran employees have been moved to different areas in order to facilitate cross training and cohesion. the investments being made in technology and the enhancements to HR and compliance services have been dead on. Senior management is committed to happy employees and happy clients. Keep it up!
