    Pros

    The job is challenging, the people are nice and they pay well. Management encourages me to take on as much responsibility as I can handle. My coworkers seem to like working here also and many employees have been with the company for a very long time.

    Cons

    Haven't experienced any "Cons" at WiLine. Things move very quickly here and I could see some people not excelling in such a fast paced environment.

    Pros

    WiLine Networks is a growing company with good people and a great vision. When I started at WiLine which is a telecommunication company it was competing with Fiber and other data companies. Now WiLine has a big competitive advantage with the price they can offer, so the company is doing well and all the office locations are expanding.

    Cons

    In my year at WiLine, there were growing pains and management had high expectations for all the staff. Nevertheless I did learn a lot and I worked with some good people in all levels of the company. Training for the staff is a must have, but you must make the effort to ask questions and learn as you go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look after your staff and keep them updated on your expansion plans. Offer more training and support to the staff in all the office locations.

    Pros

    Brilliant CTO, who is very approachable and makes time to address any technical or company related questions an employee may have.

    Cons

    Telecommunications industry is intensely competitive with established players dominating the space - companies like WiLine are unable to offer the comprehensive services the dominant players do. Hence, the potential to make a lot of money as a salesperson is not there. Expect to make at most (considering you're hitting all targets - which will not be easily given competition intensity) somewhere in the $70K range. If your desire is to make a lot of money serving in a sales cap capacity, then you may want to keep looking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None - good luck!

    I worked at Wiline

    Pros

    When I first started at Wiline, it seemed to be a promising start-up telecommunications company. Good people, flexible hours, good benefits. From what the recruiters and sales manager told me, Wiline would be taking over the San Francisco Bay Area with a great product.

    Cons

    In my brief time there, it was discovered that the executive and sales management had very unrealistic expectations from its employees. There is always a certain amount of turnover when it comes to sales, but this was ridiculous. People would be there for maybe 3 months with hardly any training or guidance. But if you didn't perform, you were out of there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training. Your employees need to understand what they're selling, who they want to sell it to and why. Just handing someone a stack of business cards and brochures isnt going to go very far.

    I worked at Wiline

    Pros

    Free to run your territory as you see fit
    Sales managers will work with reps.(flexibility) to close deals
    Employees are trying hard to make the best of a not so good situation

    Cons

    Culture is a bit unethical
    Lack of organizational support
    Lack of financial stability

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that your most valuable asset is the employees. That seems to get lost in your organization.
