    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    I am currently employed in the international dept. Friendly atmosphere - everyone is very helpful. Generous amount of leads and accounts, lots of room to grow internationally. Benefits include medical and dental after 90 days. United is the health care company. Schedule and hours are great - no nights and weekends. A lounge was recently added providing top sellers with breakfast, lunch & snacks.

    Cons

    Parking can be a pain - make sure your given a parking pass. Vacation days aren't offered until after a year of work. No 401k plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management provides insight to their projects while providing hands on training. Great teamwork.

    Pros

    There are none. Ever since they cut compensations and fired senior management last year.

    Cons

    The company went from bad to worse. Last year they cut everyone in management's comp by 30%. Then they cut my team size, fired managers and then with our new teams they then cut their comps as well. The owner is a sociopath and bipolar nut. People are not valued only numbers and frankly it doesn't matter how you get them. That's why the company was not growing. Slamming leads called 100s of times does not do anything. Management was changing that but since the turnover it went right back to the old way only worse. They will screw you out of commissions, compensation and even earned minimum wage. If you have no soul you can last here. If not find other opportunities. Your rigged to fail and only the owner wins.

    Pros

    All the leads are exhausted and heaviy worked and I mean sometimes 24 hours before you call. The ad promised a nice salary, a bonus premium on commissions on sales in the first week to 2 weeks.

    Cons

    As I stated above their is a bonus commission premium on quick start sales. So I had an appointment the next day to finish the sale and another sale the day after. I got fired the day of the appointment. They cut my salary in half, gave the commission to the Sales manager or kept it in house and kicked me to the curb. Snakes !!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close down before the State of FL shuts you down.

    Pros

    Gimmicks to entice you like red bull, popcorn, served breakfast and lunch.

    Cons

    The pros are only because their name is so bad. Wonder why they need these gimmicks? Cause the owner is a liar. Sells a pipe dream. Wonder why only the recent three postings are positives. Cause their trying to deal with the fact they can't stop the truth about them on the internet. Can't put enough perfume on trash to make it smell good. Search the owner's / CEO's name. Check out rip off report too. You'll see. Stay away unless you want to be treated like trash. Senior management are cowards who fear for their jobs and will do anything to save it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave while you have some integrity left.

    Pros

    Ice Cream, sometimes nice colleagues

    Cons

    Greedy management. All the leads has been EXHAUSTED and it's a type of market where you can't just generate new leads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give reps more time to make it through.
