    Pros

    Great work-life balance with adequate opportunity for career development. Good compensation and benefits. Relaxed environment, reliable schedule and fun co-workers. They recently put in a game room with ping pong, mini golf and now offer an employee lounge to top reps and teams. Great position for some right out of school looking to learn from the industry and gain some experience.

    Cons

    Parking can be a pain in the afternoon. The health care is an excellent plan but isn't cheap.

    Advice to Management

    Add sick days to the policy.

    Pros

    Sucking on lemons. You will pucker up from the lack of ethics within your first week on the floor. I worked on the renewal team and watched them manipulate bonus standings to reward who they wanted instead of who earned it. My friends from training class who worked in new business had their accounts taken by the good old boy network. Two were even fired within the first three weeks on the floor and told me they had their checks cut to minimum wage from hire and were told they owed the company money. I've witnessed the owner cursing out the managers and heard them screaming too. The product stinks and the help desk team is incompetent and are never there to help.

    Cons

    I found I got distracted like others at what was really happening from all the freebies like drinks, food and special parking. The reality is it was all a distraction to keep you from paying attention to how they really treat people.

    Advice to Management

    Tell people what you really are. Stop telling people they can earn things they can not. Tell people your a boiler room. Just be honest.

    Pros

    Be spoken to abusively. Be lied to about income. Have your income cut unilaterally with no notice after the fact. Have goals set that can not be reached. Free popcorn. Free Red Bull. Free catered breakfasts and lunch to top earners.

    Cons

    If you don't like being treated like garbage you won't be happy. If you don't get you sense of worth from praise from a two bit management team you won't be happy. If you don't like gimmicks like a child at a carnival to serve as distractions to how your really being treated you won't like it here. Most of the guys are former addicts so unless you like this approach you won't be happy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Your building a world class team.


  9. Ample opportunities if you're willing to keep your head down and work.

    Pros

    High earning potential for sales representatives working for an industry leading company. The company has a bit of a sour history with regards to a revolving door for employees, but has spent the last year changing the image and the culture internally. Stable weekly base income with the ability to earn high commissions. Work is Monday through Friday from 8-5. Coworkers are great and there’s a good buzz on the sales floor.

    Cons

    Leads have a history, take more finesse at this point and the sales cycle becomes a bit extended. Company doesn't currently offer a 401k. Website is a little dated for current technology available.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on rebuilding the site to bring it back to the cutting edge of the industry. Offer a 401k plan to employees.

    Pros

    People are super friendly. Relaxed but determined environment. Managers and upper management are patient with the learning process. I.T. is fast and extremely helpful, constantly looking for ways to update your computer or phone, and will answer any question you may have. Recruiters are kind and easily accessible. Weekly pay for most employees. Hour lunch break. Lots of diverse employees. CEO is firm, but he's a nice guy.

    Cons

    Parking is hard to find after a certain time. At times communication is lacking.

    Pros

    Exciting, worldwide industry with strong compensation. Great opportunity to build relationships and offer a product that is designed to either save or make money. Positive team atmosphere that demands results. Top producers are given access to an exclusive closers lounge where breakfast and lunch is served daily.

    Cons

    Requires a more sophisticated approach because most prospects know exactly what we are selling. Need to be resourceful to uncover quality leads.

    Advice to Management

    Develop new website and clean up database
