    Number one reason is the opportunity that this company provides. Managers have an open door policy always looking to push me to hit my goals in life.

    Pros

    First job where I actually look forward to coming to work. I am surrounded by goal oriented driven young professionals that are committed to the team and strive to see the company expand and grow together. I like the fact that I am paid on commission, I get paid as hard as I want to work that week, no one gets to tell me how much I am worth at the end of the day.

    Cons

    The learning curve can be a bit sharp, but of you pay attention and take the training to heart you will be successful.

    Pros

    The educational experience is like nothing I have ever found before. We learn and grow becoming more impactful in our area. Every day we are developing skills that are essential to every walk and course of life. The environment is friendly and is quite conducive for learning and progressing. I have appreciated the drive forward, goal oriented time I have spent here.

    Cons

    At first this job requires a bit of learning. It is nothing too hard to overcome, and once you get the hang of it all else is made easy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The reason why I have come to enjoy this job is due to the respect I have gained for management. They are the lead by example type and hold us to a professional standard that prepares us for our future.

    Pros

    This place has a pool table and some cool people to work with. Hours are flexible and easy to manage.

    Cons

    This is a sales job and there is no other way to explain it. Do not expect to do a real market research project or report. This is cold calling and straight to the sales kind of place to work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to sell your company to employees. Let them see what they are becoming a part of and allow them to decide beforehand if they want to be a part of it.

    Pros

    The office atmosphere and culture are great! Everybody is very positive and goal oriented. I absolutely love the people I work with. I learn something new everyday; and I know this company is going places and doing great things!

    Cons

    I really cannot think of too many things to put here. Like any job, there are things that I don't love but I am sure those are specific to myself.

    Pros

    Overall fun atmosphere with about 10 people in the office, but that can quickly change if you aren't producing.

    Cons

    The negativity if you are struggling. After a week or so you simply have to always produce or there is no pay. Walking door to door to knock on a stangers door in the cold rain and ice really is tough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be there for your employees. Help them succeed and don't play favorites

    Pros

    The sales team is excellent and the supporting staff are top of the line. The environment is great for learning the ropes then thriving. Management is awesome here, they really know how to motivate you. Learned a ton about sales, marketing, business and leadership. Paid training.

    Cons

    Must be a self starter. Hard work. Like any other job, if you don't put in the work, you won't get the result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great training and leadership!

    Pros

    Fantastic people, great communication, great clients and amazing opportunity. Learned that hard work really does pay off and built amazing relationships with clients and co workers. No glass ceiling and if you want to go far, you will. Work hard, play hard.

    Cons

    You have to work your tail off, so if you can't handle the heat..stay out of the kitchen. Base pay could be higher also.

    Pros

    Fun work environment. High energy and enthusiasm. Fun co-workers. No big brother watching your every move. Good money if you can manipulate clients into closing deals.

    Cons

    Very dog eat dog style of job, everyone is in it for themselves. Cold calling is hard and stressful work. Most employees I know barely mode enough to pay rent. On the books Work starts at 8 and ends at 5 (8-5) but management will fire you if you aren't "putting effort into your opportunity" by showing up by at least 7am and leaving no later then 6 pm. Very bad job to take if you have a family you enjoy seeing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people and not numbers.
