    I have been working at Zirtual full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work from home, great employees and teammates. If you get a lot of tasks at once you can reach out to teammates for assistance! Management really seems to care about their employees!

    Cons

    Pay is low but management is looking at that and increases should be made within the next 12 months.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    The company cares for it's employees and as a vested interest in seeing them succeed. It's legit work from home, what's better than that?

    Cons

    The pay could be better and more flexible hours so it doesn't feel like we're chained to our desks.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing pods around so that members can really develop relationships with each other.

    I have been working at Zirtual full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have always wanted to work at home but since I have had a baby I've wanted nothing more than to be home with him and earn a steady income and that's exactly what I get! This job makes it possible to be home with my kiddo and be able to travel if I am doing so (with hotspot of course - need that internet connection!). Zirtual is always trying to be a more accommodating company to us employees, always listening to feedback and making the changes necessary to stay a "happy family" company with still being able to tend to our clients accordingly.

    Cons

    The pay is a little low but within time I'm sure that will change and being able to work from home and get benefits....well....I don't think I can complain that much! ;0) The working hours can be a little difficult sometimes 8:30 PT - 5:30 PT or 9:30 - 6:30 MT if you are me, flexibility is always nice if you need to do something or have an event outside of work that you would like to attend to that's during working hours. But as with everything, in time I'm sure it will change. Zirtual already has some great things in the make and has changed some things already!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I have been working at Zirtual full-time

    Pros

    1st - Work from Home, avoid all the stress, expense, and time of travelling to work everyday. 2nd - Company Support, Zirtual supports their ZA's by providing extended training to get you prepared for the job. After you start working with clients you are still supported by the management and your coworkers. 3rd - Every day is a new day, while you do have repetitive tasks every day you are doing something that is a little different. 4th - Room for Advancement, the company is growing and they like to hire from within providing great opportunities for growth and advancement.

    Cons

    1st - Pay, they do not pay well at this point but management is seeking to correct this problem. 2nd - Hours, most work at home opportunities have a more flexibility in the hours you work.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the base pay and provide some additional flexibility in hours.

    Pros

    Working from home, facing new and interesting challenges on a daily basis, a fantastic and supportive community, great training program. Benefits, sick days, paid holidays: all a huge plus!

    Cons

    Very specific work hours - would like to have a bit more flexibility when needed. Pay is a little low at the current time, but I know the company is striving to improve.

    Advice to Management

    No advice really - very please with how they keep employees in the loop and are constantly working to make our experience better.

    I have been working at Zirtual full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a real sense of community working for Zirtual. I feel engaged at work and I get to do it in my PJs! I enjoy working with clients from different backgrounds who challenge me everyday. Zirtual offers full-time employment with benefits. In addition, I feel valued as an employee.

    Cons

    Downsides of working for Zirtual is the rigid hours we work. It would be nice if we could work 8-5 in our own time zone.

    Advice to Management

    I think I might be a little happier if I were able to work 8-5 in my own time zone. Still, I'm very happy working with Zirtual and I'm excited to see what new opportunities will be made available to me in the future!

    I have been working at Zirtual (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have the security of being an employee and several benefits that fall under that classification. I have an amazing support system and community that I cherish. Going to work is fun and exciting. I don't have to fight for jobs or clients and I truly feel close to everyone I work with. There is a sense of "we're all in this together, so help each other". I feel secure here. I feel cared about. I'm part of the team and it is my privilege to be here as it grows.

    Cons

    Working in a growing company means handling a lot of changes in policy and it can be confusing or difficult to incorporate at first. However it isn't exactly traumatizing and feedback is heard.

    I have been working at Zirtual full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working for Zirtual is physically flexible - you're not tied down to an office or having to commute - you can work anywhere that there's Wi-Fi! The benefits Zirtual provides are great and the people you get to work with from around the country are amazing! The company is continuing to grow and they are always looking at ways to improve our workflow to provide the best Zirtual experience to our clients.

    Cons

    Compensation is only $11/hour starting off, but the company is working on increasing that. Flexibility with time could be improved - currently employees have to be available at set times - the company is also working on this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
