    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great Benefits Good Work Life Balance Entrepreneurial Freedom

    Cons

    Tough industry/clients who make rash decisions that effect your commissions Some decisions seemed to take an umbrella approach and must be carried out even if not best for your specific market A bit of a skeleton crew at HQ leads to slower response times

    Great company, fun culture. great leadership

    Sep 3, 2014 - Digital Media Denior Representative

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    This is a company that believes in your professionak and personal development. There is a lot of opportunity for growth if you are willing to move to different areas of the country. Since it is in online company there is a lot of mobility and flexibility. there is good opportunity for income but it's important to realize there are a finite number of car dealers, so some of the potential involves enhancing a dealer's product portfolio. The best way to do that is to be a consultant to the dealer and not just a salesman. That way you will be able to identify areas of need and find solutions to fill those needs.

    Cons

    if you are not self motivated or willing to move to new areas, or to develop your communication and research snd analysis skills this may not be a good place for you. those who do best here are those who don't have to be told what to do once you learn how to do it, but just get out there and get it done, regardless of what needs done. You got to run it like its your own business, because there is a lot of Independence here and if you don't get the work done then you won't get the income that follows.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Work from home. Somewhat flexible work schedule. Decent product.

    Cons

    Micromanagement at its finest by unqualified and inexperienced middle management who lack any kind of business acumen, ethical professionalism, or moral standards. They preach culture and work/life balance—don't buy it—it's a fallacy. Unrealistic goals—20% YOY growth expectation. Low compensation—new comp plan every year—progressively worse for the employee. Chargebacks that penalize the Rep on cancellations at 100% of monthly rate against current commissions after—in many cases—years of billing—is just simply greedy, unfair, and ridiculous! Extremely Cliquey—good luck if you're not in “the in-crowd." Favoritism at its worst. Merit-based promotion is non-existent—they promote their low-performing “favorites” to protect them from PIPs and/or termination. Open communication/feedback is neither encouraged nor welcomed. Overall—a company that seems to value superficiality over substance—good looks over talent—confidence over competency—and glibness over intelligence. This is the Achilles' Heel of the company and will be the ultimate reason for its epic fail.
