    Pros

    I learned alot during my career there.

    Cons

    Be prepared to tell clients one thing and then do another. Company will sell that clients will not pay the IRS and them at the same time, but that is not the case. I know first hand because I worked in multiple positions within the company. Their Client Care Department will be quick to refund money to protect their BBB rating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your better people what they deserve, especially the ones that collect your money.

    Pros

    There arent any. They will interview you and show you on a Wed. or Thursday how much money some people are making based on the fees they are bringing in. What they dont tell you is they have been there years and 1out of 100 will make a hundred K. This company unevenly distributes the leads and calls. If you dont kiss up to them the main controller w make life he!!.z Listen yall. Im a closer. I have mad skills. Dont go there. Unless you ate Absolutely desoerate.

    Cons

    Management is unfair. If you have a current lead you are working and need to call and they wanttouto take and u refuse they will punish you by landing the worst calls on you to prove their point. Again yall. This Company is formerly Emergency Debt Relief that was shut down by the state attorney generals office in 04-05. I got outta there before they shut it down. Dont go there as they run it the same and its not all about the clients as it should be. Its about making the brothers money. Ran by worst management I have ever experienced in my 15 years in sales.

    Former Employee - Sales Consultant  in  Jacksonville, FL
    Former Employee - Sales Consultant in Jacksonville, FL

    Pros

    Rapidly Growing Company- went from 25 employees to 70 something within the 9 months I worked there.
    Sales Consultants paid very well.
    Executive Team has tons of successful business management and business building experience.
    In early 2009 they were one of the only companies still hiring.

    Cons

    Give more thought to work/life balance.
    Listen to the suggestions more of those in the trenches
    Pay more to those who contribute most

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people when they are ready, hence why I am not with the company any more.

    Pros

    Great career opportunities
    Heavy performance rewards
    High level of growth as a company
    Excellent Corporate Culture

    At Tax Defense Network, they take care of excellent employees. The company is constantly looking for ways to reward performance and improve existing procedures/benefits. Performance feedback is offered up constantly as is ongoing training to improve your performance. I highly recommend Tax Defense Network looking to carve out a career for themselves quickly.

    Cons

    Heavier amount of work hours than a normal company. I don't mind overtime but some people could consider this a con.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep evolving our growing company in a positive direction!

    This is a terrible, immature company to work for.

    Former Employee - Tax Analyst  in  Jacksonville, FL
    Former Employee - Tax Analyst in Jacksonville, FL

    Pros

    There are no good reasons to work at TDN. They lie about salary (it's based on a 48 hour work week, but will not give overtime past 40 hours), they encourage employees to lie to customers, they sell products that they cannot legally provide, and they train many employees to fire all but a few before the first 90 days are up.

    Cons

    This company is very immature and the management is a joke. They fire employees if not every single person in the office like them, and work is unfairly divided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership at Tax Defense Network needs to learn that a company cannot lie to clients. They force the sales side to "fake it to make it" , and then the financial side is unable to provide the right services.
