    Pros

    Work from home, outside sales, paid mileage, they give you an Ipad.

    Cons

    Paperwork like you wouldn't believe.... about 200 questions you need to answer for each deal sold. Learn everything from online tutorials which can be time consuming to start, nobody to really call for help, left on your own to the always busy tech desk.

    Advice to Management

    Change of Mgt too much. Make sure your newbies know the rules, get acquainted before a month has gone by. I didn't meet anybody in person for 2 weeks after starting. My 9 yr old son showed me how to use the Ipad

    Pros

    I like being able to work from home and having set shifts. I like that the money is better than ChaCha. It's more structured and the answers are better for asking serious questions and getting accurate answers.

    Cons

    THey cut me off for a reason I have since forgotten but I would continue to work there if they hadn't cut off my account.

    Advice to Management

    Let ex-employees sign up to work again easier.

    Pros

    Decent pay, you work from home, and rarely see your boss.

    Cons

    No office. Constant change in commission structure. Lack of business plan to make this product successful. I joined the company right when it launched and was one of the first reps to work my market. You got one week to shadow a current employee to learn how the product works. You were expected to jump right in without any idea of what deals were good or not so a lot of time was wasted chasing crap deals.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees more so they are better prepared to sell your product. Constantly changing commission to pay us less isn't going to motivate anyone to work harder.

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere
    Flexible with your use of PTO time
    No weekends

    Cons

    No Management
    No Training at all. You are left to figure it out
    Sales staff does things their own way and there is no structure or correct way to do things
    Cold calling 100%
    Extremely hard to get deals published unless you are best friends with Publishing Head
    Fired last 10 people to be hired as of 9-25-12 saying it was a cost cutting measure to afford new DVP.
    Every 6 months fires bulk of staff for no reason
    Not a long term position

    Advice to Management

    Get a training program
    Get managers who show up for work every day and that can actually manage people
    Give people more than a few months before firing them wthout regard

    Pros

    Not a desk job. Some decent people. Great benefits. Decent Base Salary.

    Cons

    Horrible and Incompetent Managers. The people who run the company are completely irrational. Terrible work/life balance. Do not give any time off, even though you've earned it. Fired half their team. Old School management trying to compete in a new school environment.

    Advice to Management

    Get smarter people who understand social media and who know anything about New York City.

    Pros

    Awesome people, great ideas, small team, quite relaxed but it's a good place to interact and buzz ideas off eachother

    Cons

    lack of execution, a lot of the time an action would be put into play but it would never be seen through to the end. Constantly changing, difficult environment to be in.

    Advice to Management

    Happy workers
