    I worked at Cbeyond full-time

    Pros

    Constantly out in your territory just cold calling really humbles you and allows you to truly experience what it is.

    Cons

    No real guidance from managerial staff. The other reps don't really seem to know what they are selling nor do they seem like they want to be there. No wonder they got bought out.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps paying your reps more so that they would be more inclined to show that in their performance. It just seemed like a role where you're asked to collect business cards.

    I worked at Cbeyond full-time

    Pros

    I liked the people I worked with (not management).
    Pay was good.

    Cons

    SLT constantly changed the way we were paid everytime they saw that we were making a lot of money (at least 4 changes in one year). They then changed how they determined if we are making our goals and never told us. Management also highly favored men and my boss in particular was very sexist.

    Advice to Management

    Do right by your employees and treat people fairly
