    Pros

    Awesome company to work for with unlimited opportunity for growth. They definitely give you the tools to succeed it's just up to you to use them

    Cons

    Long tedious hours, they aren't lieing to you about making a lot of money they just aren't 100% honest about the process it takes to ge there. When they say a few cold calls they mean about 100 a day for the first 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Give the new recruiters some type of base to start with. You have 0 nothing nada zilch when you start and it'd be a more encouraging to at least talk to someone who's worked the process and isn't going to tell you to "F#%# Off" because you're doing your job

    Pros

    NONE, you're kidding me right?

    Cons

    If you are new to this industry or tenured do not bother working for this company.

     For starters they interview candidates, for positions that DO NOT EXIST to benefit Oxfords database. The management will belittle you and unfortunately lie too. Kill or be killed environment. Upper management does not care about your well being at all. Unrealistic metrics, unheard of and you are measured by your activity, (dials, connects, interviews, new adds, meetings) If you don't hit your numbers be prepared to be scolded and made absolutely miserable,... News flash: Management this is a demotivator!!! Terribly long hours, very HIGH TURNOVER, revolving door environment.

    I can go on and on....do not work here!

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue!

    Pros

    If you're successful, you'll be very successful - there is a ton of earning potential.
    My team was a great group, and we worked closely to help each other out.
    A lot of opportunity for advancement - the people who wanted to be in management were typically promoted to Team Lead around 1 year.

    Cons

    If you're not successful, you'll be dirt poor for quite a while. It could be up to six months before you start earning commission. It's rough to watch the rich get richer as they reward people for high earnings with even more money in a quarterly bonus.
    Some of the groups/offices are out for themselves. They won't give you appropriate credit, and they'll bully you. There's not so much a "teamwork" feel across the board. They make newer people feel like worthless children. It feels like management doesn't really care about the opinions of the lower folk.
    They require 45 hour weeks, which is a lot for it being a call center. Plus they institute mandatory overtime once in a while.

    Advice to Management

    Ask your employees for their opinions once in a while. Even if you never take anything from it, it would have been nice to feel heard before my exit interview.
