    Constant Changes. They will constantly move you from departments, teams, managers, businesses all the time. Makes it hard for you to be stable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure PM are coaching tangibles for the employees to be able to apply.

    Pros

    Compensation
    Co-workers
    Work campus: Gym cafe bowling ally

    Cons

    Schedule changes all the time. Work-life balance is nearly impossible. My schedule changed 5 times even though I was a top performer.
    You have to ask to go to the bathroom.
    Switched from business without any notice or say so in the matter
    Had 7 managers in 1.5 years. Move desk at least 10+ times
    Politics - promotions are based on who you know vs what you know
    Hired as a sales agent - it it hard to move into Corporate positions
    Policies are not enforced company wide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train Performance Managers. Just because someone can sell a products doesn't make them an effective lead capable of inspiring and developing others.

    Enforce policies company wide. Company policy should be standard regardless of the business you work on.

    Hire more within for Corporate positions

    I worked at Red Ventures full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The CEO and other top leadership really know what they're doing.
    The headquarters are pretty nice with some good food and stuff to do.
    If you know the right people, there are some good opportunities.
    There are some really great people to work with.

    Cons

    Sales agents have the opportunity to make a lot more than salaried employees. Salaried employees are paid quite a bit lower than the industry average. The company sells employees on the benefits so they won't feel bad about not getting paid as much.
    Management is very poorly trained. Watch out for back stabbing and a career you have to navigate on your own. Some managers do care, but it's few and far between.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more honest and don't whitewash the grave.

    Pros

    RV will teach you how to sell, flat out! Gym, food discounts and incentivized bonus items like Visa cards are nice. Pay was good as long as a coworker once told me, "you mislead the customer in the proper way."

    Cons

    As a phone agent I steadily progressed from one division to the next and eventually promoted to what most agents consider the top selling/commission division in the company. I was no flash in the pan having been on the phones for over two years. Then as had happened to others during my tenure I was pulled into a room one day after making yet another killer sale for the company. They started to quiz me about a call I sold months ago. Of course I really didn't remember it since you know, WE MAKE 100+ DAILY CALLS. Next thing I knew I was told to go home as I dispositioned the call incorrectly and then let go the next day. While I was stunned at this turn of events at least my earnings would be paid out or RV would have had a wrongful termination suit on it's hands. Bottom line ALWAYS WATCH YOUR BACK!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top level management including the CEO are very sharp. However I never worked at a company which requires employees looking to move into management take a $20k and up PAY CUT. As a result managers are nothing more the yes inexperienced people toting the company line. It works for the bottom line but not employee morale.

    Inside Sales

    Pros

    I unfortunately have nothing nice to say about this company. One of the worst places I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    The employee turnaround is out of control. People get fired on a daily basis, not for not doing their job, but for quality control reasons. Definitely not a company you want to grow with, especially in their childish environment.
