    I have been working at Cydcor full-time

    Pros

    Coming out of college I was so nervous to move into a "real career." I graduated with my degree in promotional communications & any job in my direct field required 2 years minimum of work experience (even entry level!)

    My favorite part about Cydcor when I first started out was that they cared about my drive and ability to be personable more than the degree I held and experience I had.

    I started off learning business-to-business sales, account management, and was trained fully on leadership.

    After 7 months of high-performance and exemplary leadership I was promoted into human resources and after a year of working here I now head the human resources department.

    I couldn't be more grateful for the mentorship, networking, opportunity, and supportive atmosphere that is set in place with Cydcor

    Cons

    Been here a year and i have none at this time.. will update if needed.

    Advice to Management

    To Gary & management team:
     Keep up the great work, you've helped instill the confidence I needed and taught me skills that are going to help me start up my brand management business. I couldn't be more grateful.

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

    Pros

    People need to understand that this job is not easy it takes a lot of hard work and dedication but with that being said what job worth doing is easy. This job is a management training program you definitely have your up and downs but they give you everything you need to succeed and if you put the work in time into the job then you will succeed you determine your paycheck you determine how fast you move up in the company. It is a pyramid like structure but that's why they are so successful not just anybody's going to get in the top it's the people that work the hardest and make the most out of their day that are going to make it to the top faster. I started out as an account executive in the field yes it is door-to-door and I am now a corporate trainer and yes I am still training and going door-to-door but I'm also making anywhere between $900 and $1,400 a week because I put the time in and I am working on building a team and getting promoted to assistant manager. That's when you become more than just commission because you have earned it. They do not brainwash you they simply just give you the tools you need to succeed and it's up to you to do it they weed out the good in the bad that's way if you're weak and you don't have it in you you're not going to make it to management if you can't survive the field. It's not that bad and they make it a lot of fun they have a lot of business trips they compensate you very well if you put the work in and they have a lot of perks that come along with the job as well. I have been here for about 6 months and I do not regret working here this is the biggest opportunity I've ever come across and I have two degrees and came from the medical field. I took a pay cut to work here but it's because I can advance move up and make a huge living and career off of it.

    Cons

    Working in any sort of weather and being 100% commission can be stressful at first. Once you get the hang of it and learn to manage your money you're good to go.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! You know you have a company that is absolutely brilliant and effective.

    I worked at Cydcor full-time

    Pros

    other hard driven individuals and good learning skills to then take and use at a REAL job/career.

    Cons

    it is a pyramid scheme. there are no ifs ands or buts. you start off as a trainee with a small base pay and when you are sent to the "field" it is door to door or business to business or sitting at a shopping center doing cold call selling. your "leads" are just addresses of people who are eligible for whatever product your manager is working for and no they do not know you are coming. it is full commission so if you have a bad week. oh well. they leave you with a bare minimum pay. it will take more out of your wallet than you put in. please please please be careful when looking into companies that fall under this umbrella

    I worked at Cydcor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Has a greats sales system in place
    Generally supportive sales peers
    Commissions are paid out on time without issue

    Cons

    The job is completely in the field regardless of weather (i.e. door to door)
    The salary is completely commission based
    Will hire anyone willing to work
    Misleading job postings as "Marketing" "Public Relations" or "Management Trainee Program"
    Work week can be 60+ a week all commission based

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring anyone that walks in the door
    Stop posting misleading job postings
    Provide something other than a commission structure

    Pros

    The pros to working for Cydcor is the awesome work environment that they have created. What makes it even better is the leadership that we have here. From the CEO down the leadership takes great pride in what they do and they truly care about the employees. One great example is on my first day on the job the CEO introduced himself to me knew my name and my background. He wanted to get to know me and he made me feel welcome.

    Cons

    There aren't any cons to speak of this is a great work place.

    Pros

    Sales experience. Generally nice people to work with.

    Cons

    The entire company is a multi-level marketing scheme. It might be okay working for the corporate office, but the individual branches are all a scam. All door to door or business to business, and the entire system is built around using people. Everyone is chasing the carrot of false success, and it is truly sad the level of brainwashing that occurs at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to people

    I have been working at Cydcor full-time

    Pros

    Cydcor has amazing people, benefits, growth, and a beautiful open office. Cydcor provides the tools I need to succeed professionally: 2 large displays, a laptop, and many mentors who you can learn from. Cydcor also gives plenty of opportunities for you to grow personally with the people you work with. There's a gym onsite, a weekly "social sip" for team members to bond, and many internal events (such as the corporate games, fundraising, or business conferences).

    I love this job and I really hope that you are able to distinguish between the reviews of people that work here from the independent sales offices that work with Cydcor but are reviewing Cydcor.

    Cons

    It's a big office, so it takes a while to get to know everyone.

    Pros

    Great for learning sales and leadership of teams. Valuable business and people skills can be developed here if you put forth effort and don't give up.

    Cons

    There is no actual ownership of your own office or business. Cydcor owns everything. You can't make any direct deals with Fortune 500 companies. You'll learn how to think like an entrepreneur but will never actually be one under Cydcor.

    Advice to Management

    I understand that you have to sell the dream and get people to believe in it before they try to reach for it. But don't forget that you are not an owner. This is not your own business.
