    Pros

    Work life balance and decent pay. Work is remote. Nice group of people to work for and with. Innovative product.

    Cons

    Going through restructuring so sometimes communication between remote reps and management can be a challenge but the company is stable overall. Just be patient as the continue to get things in order.

    Advice to Management

    Find creative ways to keep the communication lines open for new reps especially if they work remotely. Keep new reps engaged and provide ongoing training opportunities for the new hires in the first 90 days.

    Pros

    None, just nothing good will come of this place

    Cons

    It was the most bizarre work experience of my life. If I could give anyone advice I would tell them to pass over this company and keep searching, keep in mind if something sounds too good to be true it is. RUN! And before you even consider sending in your resume, don't it's a terrible idea and the worst you have had yet, just stop it!

    Pros

    We do give have a nice work life balance. They also are very helpful with new employes through orientation and onbarding.

    Cons

    Our small company is trying to grow and it seems our eyes are bigger than our stomach. We are increasing our employee numbers and the return on investment is not occuring as quickly as we had hoped. We are looking to trim the fat and it seems to be if you are not the right "fit" for provo you are easily dismissed. But if you "believe" in the system you can do no wrong even if you are not producing results.

    Advice to Management

    Put trust in "all" of our employees not just the "believers" of the provo way. Its a big world out there and to compete in our industry you need "all" types of people.

    Pros

    The company is great for recent graduates and college students. They are very flexible with schedule and have great tools and training to make sure you are comfortable with what is expected of you.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of room for growth within the company. Health benefits are at a minimum. Work can seem uninteresting at times.
