Approves of CEO

Pros

It has a Good base, an awesome commission structure, and the manager is extremely supportive and understands how to keep a work life balance for his employees

Cons

Can't say that I have a whole lot of negative things to say about working here, others than having to sit at a desk for the majority of the day

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work, all I know is that everyone in our office is extremely happy each and every day

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Relaxed dress code
    - Unlimited soda, coffee, juice, tea, etc.
    - Can be left to work to yourself

    Cons

    - Company philosophy hold that anything that doesn't have a 100% ROI, isn't worth investing in, so that means you are given the cheapest:

    * Equipment
    * Benefits
    * Access to HR
    * Delay in commission payments

    - At the end of the month you are expected to stay late, which is normal for sales, but they more or less lock you in the building, feed you, and never tell you what time you're leaving. Sometimes you are there for an extra 3+ hours even if you have nothing else left to close.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your Sales Reps. Invest in *some* cosmetic and office upgrades, even if it isn't a profitable venture. Working in a warehouse with equipment from the 1980's is no good.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good product, price points, small enough where they can make quick decisions and changes.

    Cons

    Again almost too quick to make decisions, change the products/pay plans on the reps almost every few months. Not sure of who will be there at the beginning of each month, as there will be terminations every 1st of the month without fail. Lots of favoritism, similar to a high school and who your "friends" with.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure some of the management team, where they were promoted due to growth, not performance or who they know not what they did.
