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

Pros

- Great work environment, employees are great
- Training consisted of not only sales skills, but also knowledge of product
- Quality product and service lineup that is cost competitive comparing to similar products/services

Cons

- Cold calling all day, so be ready to walk a lot and drive a lot
- Managers push quantity over quality
- Pay structure does not equal other companies in the industry or even other resellers of Cbeyond
- Employee turnover

Advice to Management

Make sure you hire the right people. There is a certain person who will fit the mold of a cold caller. Although management does a pretty good job of telling new hires that it is difficult when you first start.

    I have been working at Cbeyond full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun promotions and bonuses every month
    If you work hard, you'll get promoted quickly
    Learn to work the system, once you figure out the politics you're golden

    Cons

    Tons of micro management, the biggest problem you run into is that prospects 1) haven't heard of Cbeyond or 2) don't want to spend $400+ for phones, internet and e fax. It's very hard to compete against other providers that can supply double the bandwidth for half the price (and a decrease in reliability...but most prospects care more about price and speed than reliability)

    Advice to Management

    Fire the reps that zero out instead of keeping them on for months at a time, and don't micro manage the reps that produce

    Pros

    Cbeyond offers a laid back atmosphere in a quickly growing technology company. Cbeyond loves to give back to the community, and ensures that it's employees are happy.

    Cons

    The work pace is very fast, so if you aren't willing to take some initiative, its easy to get left behind.
