    Pros

    Great people to work for and with, endless opportunities, and the company clearly and passionately cares about its employees. There is a camaraderie at RDI that is rarely found in the business world anymore.

    Cons

    Company is growing too fast and sometimes leaves us trying to be reactive instead of proactive, however with growth comes restructuring, which in turn is opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in your employees, it makes us feel, important, needed, and appreciated.

    Pros

    Everyone is nice, but the management is ridiculous. Good luck getting out there after your training. They don't care at all no matter how much they say they do.

    Cons

    Everything. 9.5 hour days, which doesn't seem like much until you're stuck in a cubicle and you have no idea what you're doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to train your employees.

    Pros

    ½ Day Fridays, Weekends off.

    Cons

    Managers claim to be on the same page, but all of them have completely different answers. If you are one who speaks their mind rather than falls in line, you are targeted, and watched very closely for any reason to be written up. All managers including top tier site managers are uneducated. They consider spending more than 5 minutes in the bathroom a "unauthorized break." Constantly changing the metrics required to meet commission based bonus, their attendance policy is worse than elementary school. Forget being sick, even with a doctors note you are disqualified from your bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach, attempt to be on the same page, not just talk about being on the same page. Don't target employees because you don't like them. Reconsider the way you treat employees.

    I worked at RDI Marketing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Co workers are the most enjoyable aspect. Working for the GE Division gives you the sense of being a part of something larger. Structured, scheduled hours are a plus.

    Cons

    Pay is an absolute joke. Time tracking system is constantly WRONG, and you aren't paid your hours. Regardless as to job titles, the B2B center is a call center atmosphere and treated as such, with nothing to do with sales. Team leads are promoted far to quickly, though they may have seniority, are clearly power hungry at that point, and have no clear knowledge on how business works. Being hired for B2B Sales means to SELL...not to be narrow and closed minded about how only "your" process works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your staff a competitive wage, and treat them as such...your turnover rate wouldn't be through the roof. They are more than numbers and more then "call time". Its not a call center. Promote those who know what the position requires, not someone with seniority who is clueless and will just ask someone else who hasn't been given the opportunity, but has the knowledge.

    Pros

    Most of the co-workers are nice and friendly. They offer free coffee.

    Cons

    They don't give salary reviews. WAY TOO MUCH nepotism!!! If you're a relative, you have it made. If you're not, good luck! Not much chance for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider salary reviews, at the very least cost of living. Appreciate the good employees, instead of letting them go, and hiring someone else.

    I worked at RDI Marketing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    they hire you without hesitation

    Cons

    -you dont get paid for the hours you work!
    -you get treated poorly by management, teamleads, etc.
    -the attendance policy is worse than that of a high school
    -no one in the company is willing to work with you if you need something signed or something proving you actually work there.
    -there are very few opportunities for advancement there have been people stuck selling on the phones for 15+ years and never offered an opportunity to advance but if there is an opportunity some very young person who is willing to suck up and may not even know anything about the program/product they are supposed to be looking over will get it!
    -the benefits are worse than what Mcdonald's employees receive
    -i was pregnant and very sick during my pregnancy and even with doctors notes they suspended me and threatened to fire me there is no leniency what so ever when it comes to medical issues
    -a female that i had worked with was found in the bathroom with a needle in her arm and was high nearly everyday but managed to keep her job while another female i worked with who had 3 kids had to miss several days while her son was in the hospital after a car accident and she was fired for "occurrences"
    -there have been more than 10 car break ins in the parking lot and the company did nothing about it yet they still refuse to let you have personal belongings on the premises and will make you take anything personal out to your car.
    -i was shorted over 28 hours on a check and they only paid me for 12 of those hours after multiple attempts to get the mistake corrected they said that it was my fault and they were not going to add any more hours to my check the program they use to keep track of employee hours has been broken for years and instead of spending the money to fix it i have a feeling they are making more profit off of it being broken and shorting hours than they would if it were fixed.

    needless to say you would be doing yourself a favor to steer clear of this company and if you do become employed by them have very little expectations and keep looking for a better job from the moment you start!

    I quit RDI not long ago and it was the best decision i have made in a long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make an effort to help the honest, good, hardworking employees happy and quit spending time on the countless drug addicts that rdi hires even though most of management is on drugs as well.

    Pros

    If you are a friend or relative of management/ownership, you can expect more

    Cons

    paid poorly, treated poorly and half of management is unruly and unprofessional. Pay is horrible for what your asked to do. So many care about only those who think like they think or feel how they feel. Robots welcomed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A mirror would be a great place to start. Its a top down disease that's killing company, not the other way around..Begin at the top

    I have been working at RDI Marketing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    RDI has made multiple leaps just in 2014 alone. They have what is called ELLWell, Earn Well, Learn Well, and Live Well. It is a company that is experiencing large growth and with that dramatic management change. Working for RDI has its ups and downs but they are getting it together.

    It is upsetting to see all the negative reviews online because I do believe that RDI is making strides to move forward and improve on their business model and how they treat employees. I am excited to see where RDI will go within the next year.

    Cons

    Scheduling can be challenging due to client requirements. There is little lunch break. Sometimes get sent home

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to build your teams and lead by doing. RDI needs to increase transparency and communication across the entire company. I feel like if these problems were alleviated then others would fall off as well.

    Pros

    Nice people, pretty decent pay to start out. I got promoted pretty quickly because I was good in the call center.

    Cons

    Not really any benefits, and if you work in a call center, you better stick to the script. If you're promoted, there is no raise or more benefits, just more hours.

    I worked at RDI Marketing for more than a year

    Pros

    Great home work life balance, structured hours, some bonus opportunity, friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    A lot of background talk by management via e-mail and incessant gossiping which makes employees feel constant scrutiny and frustration. Very high turnover as employees are treated as expendable. The supervisory, lead roles are not given to the hardest working people, but appear to be given more to the kind of people who can be easily intimidated and or controlled. Training is inadequate for many campaigns, which appears to be out of desperation for having abruptly lost frustrated employees. Bonus structure is not set and if given, is constantly threatened and/or made nearly impossible to reach, setting people up for failure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acting like you're in a soap opera or in high school. Say what you mean. Make goals attainable. Don't lie. Be respectful. If you have an employee who needs discipline or instruction, address them directly. Sending out hateful e-mails with cursing and threats to ALL of your employees not only slows down productivity, but it also makes you look like an ignorant jerk who doesn't appreciate the good employees and has poor management skills coupled with an inability to coach those who need direction.
