    I have been working at iCore Networks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Commission structure is really good - higher than competitors. If you're in sales you can make a lot of money. Nice office space. Colleagues are mostly pretty cool. Benefits package is stellar.

    Cons

    This is the absolute worst work environment I have ever witnessed. First of all, expect to work extremely long hours every single day - if you have a family, RUN! This is only feasible for individuals who are either A.) Single, or B.) Fresh out of college and don't know any better. Secondly, management will try and motivate you by telling you how disposable you are and how everyone who has ever left practically begs to come back because it really is "the best job you will ever have" and it takes leaving the company to realize it. The truth is, you are 100% disposable, but no one wants to come back because any company is better than this place. Personally, I've never found this to be motivating - just stressful...more stressful than what it's actually worth. This is the epitome of a boys club - sorry ladies, you will have to work a full day while the gentlemen go golfing, or drinking, or whatever else they can find to do. You can also expect to see men get promoted really fast...females, good luck. Lastly, those positive reviews you see on here are all fake - marketing requests people to write positive reviews to bring the rating up (notice that the posting dates are all within the same few days? That's not a coincidence.)

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value your employees, you'll make even more money if your team actually wants to work for you.

    I worked at iCore Networks full-time

    Pros

    You can move between departments, sort of. They don't compensate fairly.

    Cons

    Compensation is pathetic. Employees are mistreated regularly. This is a horrible place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more women in positions of management. It's a boys club.

    I worked at iCore Networks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They start you out at an ok salary.

    Cons

    Everything, they want you to advance within the company but you have to walk door to door ALL DAY to do it. There is minimal training and honestly it was one of the worst jobs I ever had. Yes some sales position you have to walk door to door, but you lie to people in order to gain their business and feel terrible about yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Invest on you back end in order to support the loyal customers instead of just running through them.

    Pros

    The job challenges are always present, but they accelerate my career quickly with all of the on-the-job experience I get. I get to travel to multiple markets and learn the trends, competitors and opportunities in each of them.

    Cons

    It's easy to work 50-60 hour weeks when you're dedicated to getting the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture alive as you grow and expand to other markets

    I have been working at iCore Networks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved the work environment. For me it is important to work with a management team and co-workers who are willing to work together to maximize output and really get work done, I found those people at iCore.

    Cons

    I didn't want to work at iCore long term, so I left. It is a great company to work for for a few years but the upward mobility isn't what it should be. I guess the managers they have are so good why change a bad thing when it works. Just wasn't a good long term career option for me.
