    Pros

    Company provides professional B2B sales management opportunities for employees very early in their sales careers.
    Company sales training is very strong, and company spends thousands of dollars per intern to fly them across country and train them with no promise that the intern will ever be a strong seller.
    Very young, high-energy sales environment. Refreshing to see young professionals passionate about helping college students begin their career.
    New president has strong vision for the company.

    Cons

    Regional Manager position seasonally has a lot of travel. Mainly during early spring and summer, the Regional Managers are traveling almost every week. This can be exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    Let department heads really lead their departments. Allow employees to trust that their department head is in charge of the day to day decisions.

    I worked at AroundCampus as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good resume builder, friendly coworkers, relaxed atmosphere. I never became too stressed and the experience with other interns was nice and lead to friendships.

    Cons

    The days start to feel long and repetitive. Thankfully the internship didn't last any longer than 2 months. Once you begin to understand how to do your job, there's plenty of time to do other things

    Advice to Management

    Give your interns more to do or don't hire as many interns. If your interns are through with all of the work they've been assigned, don't be upset with them if they start to do other things on their laptops. Just let them go home early if necessary.

    Continue to make solid hires to help define processes

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

    Pros

    The resume building experience was the only pro. This is for people looking for b2b experience that dont want to make very much money even if you are a top performer.

    Cons

    A company that does not do anything they say. Promises are never delivered to both their customers nor employees. Very dishonest organization. I would never work for this company again and sound a clear warning to those contemplating possible employment opportunities or advertising opportunities with this company. Dont do it or you'll regret it! !!

    Advice to Management

    Get on top of it! It's so frustrating as an employee to be constantly hounding you to get results so that I can do my job!

    Pros

    Training was very in depth and highly focused on success. You learn everything you need to know to be successful and conquer rejections.

    Cons

    Management just throws you out there on your own. Support is slim when it comes to a struggling territory. No data is provided either, which is hard to pitch without it, especially in todays world.

    Advice to Management

    Let your winner territories do their thing, focus more on the struggling territories more.
