    I have been working at DataSphere Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Small company culture with big company benefits. Collaborative culture where success is celebrated, including floor wide applause for every sale. Top performing account executives are more than willing to help newer account executives as they find their way, and demonstrate true mentorship. The leaders are passionate about their teams and are very supportive. Set schedule, easy access to the office right off I-90,...

    Cons

    Calling out to businesses you hear no more often than yes, but if you are resilient and can have thick skin then its not so bad.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive your teams through passion and seeing the potential in your teams. All the leaders truly care and it helps that they have all sat in the same seats as what they are now managing.

    • "Promises of Success Much Different than Reality of Job"

        Doesn't Recommend

        I worked at DataSphere Technologies full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Great company success culture when successes happen and friendly work environment.

        Cons

        Pay is very low for long, tedious work, unless your sales reach floor quota which gives you commission, but out of roughly 80 sales people only about 30% hit quota, so the $16 per hour is what MOST people end up with in pay. The sales people who do have high sales often use ethically questionable methods to get those sales. Product likely does nothing for most clients, so it doesn't feel rewarding to sell it to people....

        Advice to Management

        lower the quota so more people can conceivably reach it and get commission...that way the turnover would not be so huge.

        I worked at DataSphere Technologies

        Pros

        Everyone at DataSphere was great, from the ground level to the president himself (who held the door open for me one time).

        Cons

        I have absolutely no complaints about this company other than it was far away so my commute was long.

        I have been working at DataSphere Technologies full-time

        Pros

        They really know how to work the sales coolaid and keep folks somewhat positive while the ship is sinking.

        Cons

        It is difficult to have faith in the product when one commonly loses sales to a terrible company reputation and experiences chargebacks that are out of the reps control.

        Advice to Management

        Just keep swimming?

        I have been working at DataSphere Technologies full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Friendly supportive atmosphere. People are very supportive and helpful. The hours are good, and you get out rarly. Lots of incentives beyond regular pay. The sales commission incentive is great if you do well.

        Cons

        Its a grind. Its monotonous. You here a lot of no's to get to the yes. It takes a strong mind set and the ability to stay posititve in between sales. Its very difficult when you make sale after sale only to lose it do to reqsons out of your control.

        Advice to Management

        Rebrand. The name is detrimental because of the begative reviews. Either rebrand or fix the problems. If they have truly all been fixed, the negativea reviews should stop. Or fix the problems.
