    Pros

    Waypoint is a great company to learn from and to gain experience and knowledge that you can apply to both your personal and professional life. To me, that is incredibly valuable whether you're just looking for experience, or building your career with a company. The company exclusively promotes from within, and you are given every opportunity to grow and build your life.
    I was looking to start my career about a year and a half ago when I was contacted by a recruiter at Waypoint, at first I was just in it to gain some experience, as b2b sales is THE BEST way to build your resume and learn about business. I immediately fell in love with the people I work with, and knew this would be an amazing opportunity for me as long as I was will to (a) work hard, (b) have a student mentality, (c) soak up all of the knowledge each employee gave me, and (d) smile, have fun and maintain a positive attitude.
    When I think about it, if you aren't willing to do all of those things you won't be able to succeed professionally. Everyone at Waypoint wants to see all of their coworkers succeed, and are willing to come in early, or meet up with you after work in order to help you to continue to move forward.
    It has been an amazing learning experience and I can't wait to see what the next year and a half has in store for me at Waypoint.

    Cons

    I honestly do not believe there are any cons to this business. If you're not willing to work harder than the next person then you probably won't do well here, but that would be the case with any company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management team is absolutely amazing, and incredibly supportive. They do not need any advice.

    Pros

    Created some lifelong relationships with the awesome people in this office. Gained some very important experience for my future. Developed skills and knowledge that I would not have been able to gain in just another job for just another company. Truly a great learning experience, with extremely high advancement opportunity.

    Cons

    Very long hours, very tough work, for very little pay.

    I worked at Waypoint Consulting

    Pros

    Waypoint Consulting offers complete management training through business to business sales. It is an intensive process training how to read people, consult with business owners, and promote sales while building yourself up a measurable leadership ladder. There is a lot of support, great team mentality, and tons of resources to utilize in order to succeed.

    Cons

    The work hours are extensive and this job requires the use of your personal vehicle in order to commute throughout the Denver Metro Area. Job is commission based. These may not be "cons" necessarily, but to be prepared to dedicate time and a vehicle is required, and these were two factors I'd prefer to minimize.

    Pros

    - The people are fun and it's entertaining while in the office.
    - Learning how sell is a valuable business skill, I will give them that.

    Cons

    - It's 8am-6pm M-F
    - It's full commission
    - It's door to door sales
    - You are not compensated at all for the gas you use driving around all day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Requiring 50 hours a week with no guaranteed pay is flirting with the fine line between tough and crazy.

    Pros

    I am 29 and have been in the workforce since graduating college and this is the best work experience and opportunity I have seen. On a daily basis I train, interview, or manage a crew - sometimes all three. Also, interacting with many different personalities in the sales aspect has made me a much more effective person in the side of the job that actually matters which is helping develop people and give them a skill set that is common amongst successful people. The work environment is great. I work with a lot of my best friends. The people are energetic, exciting, funny, and we have similar mindset that we are willing to work hard for what we want out of life and we are all willing to go out of our way for people even when it isn't personally convenient. Matt's the best boss I've ever had. I look forward to continuing to grow with the company and travel. I just got back from the Chicago conference and next week and taking a road trip to Steamboat Springs. I have also seen the opportunity for management unfold. A friend of mine was promoted to open her own office in Dallas several weeks ago.

    Cons

    Not for people who are not willing to work hard or have a student mentality

    Pros

    Work environment. Hands down. Fun energetic constant learning experience. Great to be around such motivated and enthusiastic people. Thankful for the opportunity.

    Cons

    Anything that I think people would view as a "con" is really just a sacrifice necessary. Anyone who finds a "con" doesn't appreciate the opportunity.

    Keep on, keep killin' it.

    I worked at Waypoint Consulting full-time

    Pros

    As a straight out of college graduate, this job provided me with an excellent opportunity to develop and grow as an individual. Within three weeks of starting and becoming a leader, I had the opportunity to interview, train, manage, and develop others. If you are looking for experience and the opportunity to push yourself to the limits, this is definitely the job for you. The experience garnered from working at this company has allowed me to catapult myself into even greater opportunities that I never would have been able to achieve several months ago. The resulting resume I obtained from working here has really increased my value with future employers, and the individual growth I have gathered has really transformed me from an unexperienced, apprehensive college grad to a developed, determined, and motivated young professional. I truly appreciate everything that I have learned from these fantastic people.

    Cons

    The process to getting to management and becoming your own boss/partner in the company is exceedingly difficult. Clearly there are people who make it, but it necessitates an undying devotion and commitment to the job, which is exhausting. It literally takes the sacrifice of your entire previous life- sometimes to include family and friends- to become successful, which is something I just could not afford. Additionally, the pay is variable due to it being 100% commissions based, which is a double edged sword. If you are good, then you will be compensated greatly. If you are not a stellar communicator or people person, the pay will be less than anticipated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for the experience! Keep up with the fancy shoes! Don't let your employees sleep with one another, causes bad juju.
