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

    Pros

    The training schedule at Einstein is thoughtful constructed and geared towards overall improvement. The Director of Sales is hands on with the team every morning in order to ensure that every individual is continuing to improve. The culture of the company is fast-paced and rewarding. Th best part about the company is the people you will be surrounded by, the energy on the sales floor is contagious and motivating. Individuals who are willing to work hard, improve daily and step outside of their comfort zones will excel at Einstein long-term.

    Cons

    Although you are part of a sales team, progress and results are individually generated. Therefore, you need to be able to hit the ground running and learn from those around you.

    I worked at Einstein Industries full-time

    Pros

    Pay is decent and some of the people that work there are cool.

    Cons

    Where to begin:
    Cold calling while doing shady sales pitches of a product that you will receive zero training on. I wasn't there long but I heard employees who had been there a year or longer complain that they did not enough about the companies product. Management response? Sell better and maybe you'll get some product training. The pay is enough for a decent living but enough for being in that type of environment. Also, the building is so damn cold, you'll literally need a blanket to work. They will try to sell you on how easily it is to move into a territory manager position where you get to do the exact same thing you were doing before. Then you'll get up to regional manager where you get to do the exact same thing you were doing before. Zero raises, you're only hope is get good at tricking people with their shady sales pitch to earn enough commission.

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

    Pros

    Great opportunity to make a good living if you have thick skin and don't mind cold calling. Management is pretty laid back and understanding. I've been here for almost 9 months and I enjoy coming into work (after I've had my first cup of coffee). Also like the food truck we get once a month.

    Cons

    Sales has its ups and downs, if you keep at it, you will reap the rewards. Pretty high turnover but that's every sales job... if you don't like cold calling, you will not like it here.

    Advice to Management

    More product training and ease up on the dress code. It's inside sales, no one sees us!!!

    Pros

    Great Culture, strong commission structure, top reps are noticed early, industry leader, amazing products and clients. Great training program as part of TEAM Bullpen! Great systems and structure. Solid HR and training team.

    Cons

    Early hours, high workload, a couple bad apples. They give people too much leeway.

    Advice to Management

    Don't keep under performers, people that do not like to work hard and be part of a winning team. Just ask your current team who has a bad attitude or sense of entitlement, we will be the first to tell you who is part of the team or a problem to the team.

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

    Pros

    The people that work at Einstein are the best part of the company, those hiring strive just as hard to find qualified employees as they do to make sure those employees will bring a positive experience to the culture. The other most obvious pro is what grabs most of us in sales attention, the potential to make a large amount of money in a relatively short period of time, and even more so in the long run. The commission structure is designed to reward those who perform as needed and those who outperform even more-so. The Quotas are aggressive but not unachievable. You have to put in work to get there but that allows those who really want to make more to do so by going above and beyond; and by doing this month after month, you can make the system work for you via recurring monthly revenue (RMR) which is commissionable cash you get each month from previous sales. Obviously there is money to be made immediately - I was fortunate enough to gross just under 9k my first month as a TM - so there's proof it can be done. Also the first friday of each month they have a different food truck come by compliments of the company which is a nice treat.

    Cons

    The Account Executive position is almost entirely cold calling, it's designed as a paid training period to get a rep ready for the Territory Manager position in which you can start working towards that six figure income we all want. Understand that cold calling is still the most effective way to generate new business which is why it's still done - so be prepared to dial 50-70 times a day. Pay isn't anything special, $17.31/hour (36k to 40k when considering overtime pay) with a bonus system in place for each deal; however this pay structure at the AE level isn't what Einstein has in place to entice reps, they want you to prove you can handle the cold call process and sell audits before they invest in you and make you a Territory Manager at which point the pay is much much better.
    Since it is a smaller growing business you do still get some growing pains and changes can happen very quickly to how things are run, done, or viewed so being flexible is also key.
    The 7-4 schedule can be viewed as a Pro or a Con but I think it's a Pro.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work with employees on improving the company.
    Stay true to your word and you will build a loyal team with a desire to build this company further. Stay as transparent as possible as you can with all aspects to maintain trust and respect through all levels of employment.
    Keep up the Food Truck Fridays - I thoroughly enjoy those

    Good training, good benefits, good people, good opportunity to make money. once a month we have a food truck come with free lunch for everyone.

    Cons

    hourly not salary. there are ups and downs in monthly performance but that's with every sales job. half the office dresses casual, the other half is a little more professional.

    Pros

    Good sales training and great coworkers. I would only recommend this job to someone straight out of college with no sales experience that's trying to get into the industry.

    Cons

    BEWARE of the "positive" reviews listed here on glassdoor!!!!! Keep in mind that this is an internet marketing company.. so I wouldn't be surprised if Einstein found a way to manipulate these reviews. I even chose this company because of all of the great reviews listed here on glassdoor. However, now that I am working here this company is nothing that it is made out to be on glassdoor. It certainly does not deserve a nearly perfect star rating and I know a majority of my cowokers feel the same way. If you look on the einstein website it even states "check us out on glassdoor". Hmm... a little too much of a coincidence if you ask me.
    Pay is horrible and the position is not as advertised so BEWARE. Account Executives and even territory managers only make $36,000 a year which they do disclose to you. However, what they do not tell you is this "salary" is broken up hourly to just slightly over $17 an hour... Clocking in and out is childish and managers are on you even if you are just a minute late. New hires are not referred to by their names but as the "bull pen". You wake up early to get there by 7 am to just simply dial numbers... It's pretty much a call center with slimeball sales tactics. Micromanaging with no real outline of when you get moved up. Even when you do get moved up to a territory manager your job is the same exact thing of just dialing numbers all day. Except you finally get a cut of commission...

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring so many new recent college grads you can pay cheap and treat horrible. Instead, have a smaller amount of employees and increase their salary. Explain the value of the company and a long-term game plan to new hires. This will prevent them from getting burnt out and decrease the high turnover rate.

    Pros

    The best work environment I have been apart of in the 4 sales jobs I've had. The training is absolutely phenomenal and if you show that you can work hard and put up numbers. Management Will Acknowledge It!

    Cons

    It is a call center with minimal windows. If you don't like cold calling and handling Constant Rejection then don't waste your time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the consistent hands on approach with minimal micromanagement!

    Pros

    I love the fact that I control my own income. You are given an opportunity to essentially run your own business within a business and your success is determined by how much you put into it.

    Cons

    If you slack, it will reflect on your income.
