    I worked at 220 Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked 3 and a half years at 220 and it has been one of the best experiences and jobs that i’ve had. As someone that is not from the states, everyone embraced me as part of the 220 family from the CEO to every member of the company. Every year there's company culture events also the Christmas party is always great.

    The company is willing to listen to feedback and there has been changes in the company in the years that i’ve worked there because of it.

    Through the years the company has been through a lot and it has succeeded in many goals and i think that says a lot about the great team and management!

    Cons

    You have to wake up too early (7 AM)

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to all the teams, people have great ideas on how to improve the company

    I worked at 220 Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great training! I came in with limited sales experience, I wasn't a natural and they helped me grow. Gaining new skill sets and knowledge are positive qualities in my opinion. It's reassuring when the company actually delivers quality product with great service/support. Uncapped commissions were motivating and rewarding.

    Cons

    Challenging like anything else performance based.

    Advice to Management

    Keep finding new ways to add value to clients as well as the organization and the success will continue.

    I worked at 220 Group full-time

    Pros

    - You learn a lot because they offer zero training so you have to teach yourself.
    - The team outside of management is amazing, I have developed strong and Long lasting friendships there.
    - company events are fun
    - central location

    Cons

    Verbal abuse, sexism, and sexual harassment are all things you’ll experience here. Not to mention the drug use that management is also ok with. They even have quotes from dictators on the wall.

    Only 2% of the employees have been there longer than a year because it’s a constant revolving door, in all departments. When someone leaves the owner bashes them.

    Anytime there was a negative review, there was a company meeting where we were yelled at and threatened. A lot of us were forced to leave positive reviews and show management or lose our job.

    I was asked to meet with the owner and grilled about my friendship with someone who had recently left and felt that if I continued to have communication with said person, I’d be fired.

    Advice to Management

    Take leadership course, be about your people. If you can’t then sell the company because someone will sue one day

    Pros

    Maybe the Team? Maybe the team outings ?

    Cons

    Where to begin:
    Product is old!
    No leads- all cold calling without marketing support,
    No marketing
    No new product or design improvements
    No real job opportunities for career growth
    Passive-aggressive management
    No leadership
    Scary and unstable CEO
    Building is lame and vibes are temporary
    Most run to Happy hour to vent about the abuse of the day!
    Verbally abusive Non motivating CEO
    Non professional management

    Advice to Management

    Do your job!
    Take a professional course on how to work with People. Understand your flaws and take ownership. Actually- this will never happen so why bother. If I could make it a negative metric I would.

    Pros

    Fun company culture with lots of events and group activities. Padres Game, Del Mar Races and more.
    Dedicated to improving their product and services. Trevor, the owner, is always pushing for and encouraging ideas from every level of the company and he is always willing listen to feedback from employees about how to improve the product and company culture.
    Recently started a profit sharing give back to employees.
    The product has always gone through some big changes and improvements over the last few years and they have expanded their offerings to better service their clients and provide more opportunities to employees to make more money. They also sponsor ongoing education on relevant topics to the business contributing to tuition for classes.

    Cons

    Early start time 7 AM
    Loyalty- sometimes they hang on to employees to long and could be quicker to get rid of the bad apples

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on improving and building a positive work place, because the people that get it, appreciate it.

    Pros

    This is a great place to learn and grow. The marketing department is always looking for new ways to get ahead of the game. You will get the opportunity to work with a variety of clients, and will become a better consultant.

    Cons

    220 is a smaller company. It is growing, but because it is smaller, you will need to wear many hats and be willing to put in the work to make the company successful.

    Pros

    One of the best teams I've ever worked with and some of the best management I have worked for, the people at this company are indeed second to none!

    Cons

    I had a great experience at 220 but if you are not motivated and don't possess a strong work ethic, this job probably isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    The CEO is fun you get time off and alcohol on the job

    Cons

    Claims to be good for people with no sales experience but that is not the case you have to start hitting your goals ASAP or you will get fired. The training is not good for the goals that are needed.
