    Very strange place to work, I am pretty sure this business is a ponzi scheme

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Pay was good and you got your own office for what was essentially a cold call sales job.

    Cons

    Very fragmented when it came to so-called management. Sales managers would give new hires tours and would sexually harass females by telling tales of sex toy inventions. Owner is always in his office with disco style lights and loud music dancing all day. Can make this stuff up. I am 95% sure that from what I witnessed this place is a massive ponzi scheme but it seems dumb people keep buying in to their services. cest la vie
