    I worked at Astor & Black full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone felt valued for their contributions, team environment and the CEO has the highest level of integrity of anyone I've ever worked for. Richard always engaged/interacted with all employees, truly caring about each and everyone of our success and job satisfaction and the customer satisfaction was his top priority and driving revenue to the business.

    Cons

    unfortunately the company closed then sold out

    I worked at Astor & Black full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved the flexible hours to work, setting your own schedule, working from home and networking in your own community to drive business.

    Cons

    30% of your business will come from company leads, the rest will come from your own leads. Upper management cut corners with inferior product to save money, they also cut commissions to pay for a top heavy salaried executive management team, which in turn drove the company into being bankrupt.

    Advice to Management

    This is old advice to an older company, so it really isn't relevant anymore.

    The company went into bankruptcy in 2013, then was put up on the auction block and has since been bought by a new owner, new management staff with a new direction.

    In no way does this review reflect how they operate and do business now.
