    I worked at SELLBYTEL Group

    Pros

    You have fixed working hours, and they always compensate days you worked too much or pay higher if you work on (national) holidays. Sometimes you get to grow within the company, but only if you've been working for a longer time.

    Cons

    Low salary, work is sometimes a bit stressful due to the many phone calls.

    I worked at SELLBYTEL Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Exposure to Blue Chip Clients
    - Classy Location

    Cons

    - Management Style is bad, like really bad. The hierarchical levels in this company is a disaster.
    - If you are looking for even just a 'decent salary', even then I'd recommend staying out of here.
    - Empty promises made by the management are frustrating
    - Commission pay-outs are late
    - My manager sucked bug-time, like really big-time - rude, impolite - very impolite, a control-freak. I mean I could go-on but seriously, above all else, the manager was really unprofessional.

    Breaks when nobody call you
    Funny colleagues

    Pros

    You're in Barcelona. That's the only pro. It's warm and sunny here. There's a beach and the sea.

    Cons

    Pretty much all the rest, going from the way the company wants to reduce bonuses, bullies employees until they get nervous breakdowns, how our project was managed (or the lack of management), how all the employees advises and interests have been ignored, how 126 people will lose their job and how the company will not recognize its responsibility over that and is only interested in paying employees as little as possible, or hoping that if they treat them bad enough, they will leave by themselves. This might sound a little frustrated, but for 126 of us it's reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your people like people. Not only because they are people, because I realize who little you care about that. But it will benefit your company and the credibility towards your clients.
