    Pros

    Maybe pizza once in a while? Other than that, you'll never get anything.

    Cons

    Staffing lies to their clients constantly. Told one client a candidate got in a horrific car accident when he missed an interview. A manager cost the company several thousands of dollars when work was handled improperly but blamed it on someone else. Managers don't care about the employees. They'll throw you under the bus the first chance they get.

    Advice to Management

    Quit kissing the behind of your top sales guys. You should learn the difference between a boss and a manager.

    Pros

    Company is profitable, and growing, with year over year growth. Opportunity to grow your career is there if you are an individual who is ready to roll up your sleeves, work hard and shine.

    Cons

    Alot of processes and procedures, but not everyone knows how to get to them.

    Pros

    Not a whole lot of pros here, Resume builder

    Cons

    Cutthroat sales, unattainable goals, Micromanagement is terrible, goals go up every month for 2 years

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is terrible! Show a little more appreciation to the new hires all you guys care about is the big dogs. You ask too much of your Account Managers

    Pros

    They allow you to pick and choose which companies you want to work with. everyone here is awesome! there is an abundant amount of free food/lunches/breakfast's. Great vacation time when starting out. if you put in the time, you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    This isnt really a con, but you start from scratch and build your business. It's mostly described as hard work, which some people dont like to do. At the end of the day, it is not for everyone, just like every job.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, fun atmosphere, great managers.

    Cons

    Unprofessional environment at times. Rediculously low compensation for experienced employees. Increased sales = increased workload but, not increased pay.

    Advice to Management

    Start compensating your Wilmington employees appropriately. Stop paying experienced, certified, IT Technicians less than $15/hr.
     Next time we do over $1 Billion in sales, don't reward us with cupcakes and a pat on the back. A bonus check or at least an explanation would be appreciated.
    Get the lower-level employees more involved in the future of the company.
    Be more forthcoming and transparent with financials.
    An employee-owned model would do just that.

    Did a $10,000 across the board salary cut just after I left. It left a lot of people with not enough money to iive on.

    Pros

    Lot of earning potential and opportunity to win free trips to concerts sporting events and even weekends away.

    Cons

    Not enough training on the products that are sold, base salary is low. It takes a long time to make good money and there is a lack of support to help build up your business. Internal processes are very slow.

    Advice to Management

    Need a better way to collaborate with other departments outside of sales. Monthly training classes on new technologies.
