    I worked at Cbeyond full-time

    Pros

    You're getting a salary out of college (30K). Great training and solid experience in the field that will definitely toughen you up and get you ready for sales. Working with good people and some managers are great at what they do while some should not be in a management position.

    Cons

    In your first months at the company, you're spending the majority of the week getting into the office at 7:30 in the morning and chances are you won't leave the office until about 6:00pm.

    You are cold calling in territories that have been called on by countless reps before you. I've walked into some businesses that showed me a stack of business cards from Cbeyond reps before. There are some companies that would be a great fit, but they have no desire to do business with Cbeyond because they are just flat out annoyed by constantly getting cold called.

    You're required to cold call every single business in your territory. The cheapest package that Cbeyond offers is in the $400 range and there is no way most of the businesses in your territory budget that much for phone and internet.

    You're spending a lot on gas and if you get stuck with a territory thats a long way away from the office, you're going to be spending even more. They reimburse gas with $50 per month and a little more per appointment you set, but in the first few months, it is not enough by a long shot.

    I worked at Cbeyond full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Great sales training
    -Great pay (if you can last)
    -Co-workers were good

    Cons

    -A lot of wasted time with pointless meetings
    -So much micromanaging. No independence.
    -Absolutely exhausting. I had no energy to do anything after work.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on building up current employees instead of using the revolving door method. My class had about 30 people during training. By the third month, it was just me and two other people. Give people more motivation to work as hard as they do.
