    Pros

    Good hours flexible schedule free coffee/tea. Flexible dress code and occasional bbqs and company picnics for everyone. Management lets you do anything as long as you sell.

    Cons

    The whole product is a scam it doesn't work. If the customer looks up the company on ANY search engine expect an IMMEDIATE chargeback. (I've sold over 300+ packages). The trainers and managers here are unqualified and set unrealistic income expectations. The entire job is fishing in a saturated market finding uneducated small business owners and hoping they forget about what they purchased. Do not waste your sales talent selling a lie.

    Advice to Management

    Set real expectations to the employees

    Pros

    What's left of the staff is very friendly! The Company plans parties, monthly lunches and a yearly summer picnic. Free parking, coffee and tea are provided. The CEO has an open door policy and is willing to take suggestions for changes and improvements to our products.

    Cons

    Company has done 2 massive lay-offs in 3 years, the last one was 3 months ago and they wiped out 95% of their Customer Service Department along with all of the Managers. They moved Managers from other departments who aren't qualified to run a call center and the quality of service to our customers is failing miserably. They don't care about the handful of employees left behind to pick up the pieces, they just pile more and more work on everyone! No communication and no compensation!

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people in Custoner Support, NOT SALES, give your current employees increases and the time and tools to provide excellent customer service! Hire experienced Managers to run Customer Service, not Marketing Managers!

    Pros

    You can wear whatever you want. Free water and tea. Fun activities during breaks throughout the day. Good hours and weekends off.

    Cons

    Product is a complete joke, and doesn't work at all. You can't even let people google datasphere without your deal being ruined. Upper management lie about how much you can make to get new people through the door. The sales training is the worst I've ever seen. Don't waste your time or talent with this terrible company. The market is saturated, and there's really no vision for this company we all.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to new employees about how much they can make.

    Pros

    Good people, if you are single it is super easy to get laid, free generic coffee and free post-it notes.

    Cons

    Product is super easy to sell but once the customer is in they realize it DOES NOT perform. Like I mean no clicks or calls. Just embarrassing. I sold many businesses there (over 500 sales there) and I cannot remember ONE business say "I am glad I signed up." You honestly just pray they don't notice and forget or else it is an automatic chargeback. Lots of haters there too that act like Datasphere is more about the social aspects. Management is a bunch of mediocre old sales reps who couldn't cut it but maybe had a few kids and older so hey..."throw them into management." Sad! Lose major contracts with news stations do to unprofessional liability sales reps.

    Advice to Management

    Try to sell to investors. Oh wait...no investor is stupid enough to get caught holding that flaming bag of poop
