    Fun and caring outsourced sales environment where focus is on client, who ultimately, is paying the bills.

    I have been working at Sales University Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone who is hired is hired for a specific client, and no client is exactly alike so there is a variety of opportunity within the umbrella of the same business group. Everyone is expected to give it their all everyday, and negativity is simply not allowed. Client is encouraged to hire you on if things go well and they don't want to lose the opportunity of bringing you on as their employee but you actually work most days among your Sales University Group peers in the Sears (Willis) Tower with a great view of the city. There are two sister companies known as Sales Empowerment Group and Sales Athletes Group. Both of these groups do sales placement. In addition, Sales Empowerment Group acts as a consultant with companies who need help with their sales. Their business development officers bring in new clients, assist with training the employees of the existing clients and provide key advice to assist with drumming up sales numbers. Sales Athletes Group focuses on job placement for former athletes who are looking to get serious with a sales related career.

    Cons

    Depending on your perspective, the graduation date can be a PRO and NOT a con. Everyone at Sales University Group has a "graduation date" which is usually 12-18 months after hire where it is expected that either the client would hire you outright to work for them or you would perhaps have the option to move over into another team and work for a different client. I suppose this change could be perceived as a con because it is enjoyable to work here and sometimes it may or may not be greener pastures within the realm of the client.

    Pros

    The management team is the best I have encountered in my career thus far. They put our people first and treat everyone with the upmost respect. The people are fun, great to be around and very respectful to each other.

    Cons

    Are there any cons to working 8:30-5, in one of the best buildings in the world, with all of your friends?

    Pros

    Energetic, positive vibes daily from great people, a great environment, beautiful view from the 46th floor of the Willis Tower. A sense of shared goals and supportive friends surrounding you make the day fly by very quickly.

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets a little noisy in the call center room but that is because almost everyone is on the phone at the same time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe provide some private cubes when an employee is phoning into certain locations.
