    Pros

    Nice idea,, but grossly unfair to employees.

    Cons

    The management was totally self serving, unfair, and frankly a horrible company to work with. These guys are stil around under a different name. If Gerberg is in the company, don't do it.

    Pros

    You can work from anywhere, the staff is amazing, upper management is knowledgeable and helpful.

    Management gives you all of the tools that you need to succeed, though some won't. This is a job that takes dedication and time put in. Those that are willing to take the tools, dedicate themselves to learning the industry and put the time in have a very high earning potential and will find themselves in a position to realize that what they are doing is HELPING people. It's very rewarding.

    This is a family run business and it's one of the best run organizations I have ever worked for. They see the value in their staff and they honestly believe in what they do. So do I.

    Cons

    The almost constant change can be disruptive to some (though, I thrive on it).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Advanced Career Tech full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are none except for the nice office, which they are downsizing.

    Cons

    Most every senior sales consultant will quit within the first month. This is a good position for people who like to side step the truth, and dodge answering important questions about the company on a daily basis. If you like honest answers to legitimate questions then this is not the place for you. Also, there is a very low income potential here. 100% commission. Steer clear.

    Advice to Management

    Find a real job and regain your dignity. Trust me it works.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Advanced Career Tech full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This has been one of the most exciting career experiences of my life. I've worked harder than I've ever worked before. I've helped more people achieve their professional goals than I could've ever imagined I would. I've learned how to communicate on a level that few ever achieve in their sales careers. I have received mentoring and advice from some of the recruiting industries' greatest talent. I have had great months and I have had slow months, it comes with the industry and is a direct reflection of how much time and energy you're investing. All in all you get what you give. People can't blame this company if they don't succeed. They need to blame themselves. Organization and diligence are two of the most essential skills necessary to succeed here. If you don't have a firm grasp of those two things, you won't even make it a week. Not for the faint of heart. If you truly invest your heart and soul into this, you'll reap the rewards. Your clients will too. Success is contagious.

    Cons

    It takes at least 3-6 months to truly understand how to do this.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Advanced Career Tech full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice office. I mean it is impressive. Free coffee and tea.

    Cons

    Leads are pretty cold. In my experience, most new hires quit within a day or two, hardly any will last a month. Turnover is extremely high. We are not allowed to talk about our client's success rate with our company. I think this should be a number we hang our hat on... Its not :(

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to get people to stick. Fix your image.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Advanced Career Tech full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    As an employee, gives the Sales Consultants every possible tool to be successful - lead flow, nice CRM to manage the lead flow through out the process; changes are continual and can be disruptive - always looking for a better way to get the message of world class technology and predictability for the job search closer to clients and easier for sales consultants. You either change, or are stagnant and someone else takes your place...it is a great place to build a career if you have the drive, work ethic and smarts.

    Cons

    being around people who fail in the company - if you are in Denver you are all together. They typically do not work ...they complain, they think because they are handed tools they should be automatically successful. Whatever happend to work ethic? I have never seen such a flow of entitled, depressing people - who want to be paid for thier "vacation" to Denver, then disappear? There are changes - many, you flow with it, and keep doing what you can do best, which is helping people to see better ways to manage their job search. Change is necessary when you want to maintain the top spot - which this company consistently does. Very few people (clients-and there are thousands) do not get what they have expected in their engagment with the company, and the sales consultant is never involved in that side.

    Advice to Management

    it would be good to have more sales contests, company wide success stories and constant encouragement from sr management to offset the negativity of some people. Share more about the positive and where the company is heading - not just in emails.

    Pros

    Work from any where, beautiful office, great staff, CEO and his dad are great. Open door policy for all.

    Cons

    If you don't have the work ethic and are a person that gives up easily, stay at home. This job is for big boys.

    Advice to Management

    Great job. Cutting edge. I don't know many companies that can change their web site on a dime to help customers, But you can.
