    Bad Business!!

    Digital Sales Executive (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    Pros- Good commission structure
    - Fun incentives

    Cons- Dirty offices
    - Unethical business practices
    - Sweat shop environment / long work hours
    - Stressful work environment, continuous micro management
    - Staff undervalued
    - No room for internal promotion or growth
    - No kitchen facilities (If you want coffee/tea, purchase from company canteen)

    Advice to Senior ManagementDownsize your sales force, sack the slackers, employ professionals on better salaries and treat your employees like human beings and not robots. You will be surprised by the results. Company products (digital magazines/websites) need to deliver results. Put some money behind marketing your products! Employees are encouraged to misrepresent, grab the money and run! This is wholly unethical and not something you would expect from a company of this size. Open up a kitchen facility so that your employees can make their own tea/coffee. Bring in professional cleaners as the offices are filthy. Carpeting looks like its not been cleaned in 20 years.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
