    Pros

    People are great, new system helps learning and keeping up with work

    Cons

    very few opportunities for advancement. Unless you can drop everything and move to NY where you have to pay for everything while you are in the training program.

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is to get a start. Chances are you'll get a 50% boost in your next job. I've seen many do that, including 3/4 of my staff.

    Cons

    Management is of the "I don't care if you have to work until 2am" school. It's prestigious to work there according to them. Take that prestige to another company ASAP. You'll be guided by people who will tell you that at Telerep, people don't watch the clock. Of course the people telling you that manage to make the 5:15 to Stamford.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a conscience.

    Pros

    Real world experience in a fast paced environment. If you pay attention you can excel in other jobs in the same industry, and get some great recommendations.

    Cons

    You are a number. Alot of nepotism, and I mean alot. You can work extremely hard but it comes down to who is who's niece, nephew, son, etc. Additionally, upper management can be one of two things : Extremely helpful and looking out for you, which is rare - or two-sided and wielding a corporate knife to stick in your back. Moreover, nobody takes accountability for their actions, and push more people in front of the bus than I've ever seen. Also, 90% of the AE's and SA's are miserable and have only this job going for them. The people that "excel" have empty lives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually hold on to people that matter and come through on promises. In addition, stop promoting inept people and applauding mediocrity because they are related to somebody.

    I have been working at TeleRep full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - training is great
    -lots of connections
    -most of the people are young & friendly
    -obtain on the job experience that will easily help you move onto a better position and a different company

    Cons

    - compensation is terrible
    -rarely recognized for your hard work
    - definitely a boys club
    -Account Manager position is probably the most miserable job out there with the exception of cleaning toilets at a taco bell
    -work load is unmanageable
    -treated like an assistant even with 3 promotions & 3 years with the company
    -will be asked to stop your work to retrieve papers from printers or scanners from AE's

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees & what they do. Compensation needs to be increased for anyone to want to tolerate the position. Redistribute the work load and hire more employees where needed. Severely understaffed at the moment.

    Pros

    Great place to learn the industry

    Cons

    management has no clue what they are doing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    look for better incentives for your employees --- dont just yell and scream --- motivate -- create a more lax work environment i.e. jeans -- no suits --- dont get so upset if people come in late or leave early as long as their work is done

    Pros

    They are willing to take in people with no experience and train them. They reward loyal employees who bust their but.

    Cons

    The otter offices are better than the NY office. They can be very tough, but they demand the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the staff the time they need to do the things you ask them to do on every piece of business.

    Good entry-level experience, but that's about it..

    Former Employee - Research Analyst in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Research Analyst in New York, NY

    I worked at TeleRep

    Pros

    You can learn a lot about the industry in this entry-level position which be a very positive experience for a recent college grad that can live on a smaller salary. The benefits included health, dental and vision among discounts at certain retailers such as At&T wireless. The office atmosphere is generally friendly and on the younger age spectrum - mainly mid-late 20's. There's even a company sponsored softball team if you're into that.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement were very limited. The starting pay for a research analyst is extremely low compared to the market ($22k). The work can become very mind-numbing and tedious. Many of my old colleagues left after gaining some experience mainly for monetary reasons. The turnover was rather high in the time that I worked there. And the technology needs to be updated - most of the technology seemed like they were donated by IBM in the 1980's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please compensate the research staff more fairly, at least with market standards. Also need more opportunities for advancement and growth. And purchase some modern technology to ensure that the company stays ahead or at least is able to keep up the competition.
