    I have been working at Barton Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Positive atmosphere, emphasis on continual training, competent, supportive and encouraging management. Tons of growth potential as an individual and on the management end of things. A great place to work!

    Cons

    Difficult job to learn, easy for a lot of people to quit before giving it an honest attempt. It can be frustrating at times and feel like you've hit a wall, but management is consistently supportive in helping you to move forward.

    Pros

    Met some cool people. Became comfortable with cold calling.

    Cons

    Lack of professionalism. Management always contradicting one another. Cold calling all day to just get a provider on the phone that wants nothing to do with you.

    Potential to make a lot of money, most coworkers are cool, benefits, potential unlimited commission

    Cons

    heavy micromanagement, no trust environment, overly ridiculous competitiveness, toxic environment, rude management, questionable practices, constant pressure and stress

    invest and trust in your employees. Most of the people that I worked with were legitimately good hard working people. Reduce micromanagement. and rethink work culture and vision.

    I have been working at Barton Associates full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment, high energy, ethical business practices, well trained management, ability to move up in the company and they only promote within, 401k matching, strong commission structure, competitive work environment, ability to raise yearly base if you hit reasonable milestones (I've hit them every year for the 3 years I've worked here), I'm making more money here than I ever thought I'd be able to in such a short time.

    Cons

    This isn't the job for you if you're not a hard worker or money motivated.

    I have been working at Barton Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love to work here at Barton because there is real opportunity not only to make money but also to grow in the company. If you are willing to work hard you will easily move forward here. I also love that management is not on high horses but is here working with us and showing us that they too are very hard workers. This is the first job I have ever had that I truly enjoy coming to work. Working with highly energetic and fun people makes for a great day and career.

    Cons

    Truthfully the only downside (which is not one) is that you can't skip forward. You really have to go through the process.

    Advice to Management

    Let them see that it is worth it in the end. Some people cannot see what is not in front of them.
