    I have been working at Eliot Management Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Real people in this company. Love the company. Every time I or anyone in our office needs support, it has come from the highest positions. Oppertunity for advancement, and earning potential is awesome.

    Cons

    Training is a lot on your own. They do have training everyday, but until you get the experience it can be overwhelming. With more structure it can be amazing. But in defense, there are people everywhere who you can call for help.

    Advice to Management

    Management is supportive. Not much to say right now

    I worked at Eliot Management Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary only for managers and upper level management.

    Cons

    No compensation for canvassing for the company day in and day out

    Advice to Management

    Pay sales force daily for the time spent on the phones, minimum wage is better than NOTHING!

    I worked at Eliot Management Group

    Pros

    Nothing good to say about this company

    Cons

    Unprofessional company. Very unethical and rude. Pay on commission only and do not pay for the work that it takes every day to canvass (basically getting free marketing out of employees). Do not treat employees with any respect what so ever.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to give. The company wouldn’t read or consider any way.

    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Account Manager in Austin, TX

    I worked at Eliot Management Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great place to learn how to sell, learn the industry, and get started.

    Cons

    Employees do not own their book of business. Everything you built -- including all the accounts you worked for and priced -- will all go back to the house. They do not tell you this. You'll notice that very seldom do new hires come from established merchant service companies -- and when they do, they're upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Do better.

    grow up and there is other ways to make a fun atmostphere that doesn't contain the constant yelling

  7. "Not for me"

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Eliot Management Group full-time

    Pros

    Nice people trying to rebuild a good reputation.

    Cons

    The ABQ is left out of the loop for resources. Training lacks a bit, and employees are left trying to "clean up" the mess of former reps that didn't represent the company in a positive way. Commission only at ABQ office, but other offices get a base salary. It would be easier to report to work every day when some money is guaranteed.
