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

Pros

Energetic yet relaxed work environment, tons of sales contests. Enthusiastic atmosphere with constant employee appreciation events. Training department is phenomenal, and ongoing training helps agents that are falling behind. Management is personable and available. Constant face time with CEO, COO, and other execs.

Regarding other reviews, the company, in my time here, has gone through a massive cultural overhaul. The frat-like college party atmosphere has long since been replaced by a focus on professionalism and keeping customers' interests first.

Cons

Can be high pressure, as personal sales goals contribute to team/branch/company goals. At the end of the day, the goal is for everyone to make more money. Competiive nature of job can be tough on thin-skinned.

Advice to Management

Bumper Pool table.

    I have been working at Consumer United full-time

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. The office has a very easy-going atmosphere, but at the same time you get a sense of excitement from everyone working here. You are surrounded by people who work hard but know how to have fun while doing it. The executives of the company truly care about their staff, taking the time to check in with anyone they walk by. Consumer United is dedicated to providing their employees with the tools and experience needed to become successful in whatever career path you may choose.

    Cons

    It is a very long walk from one end of the office to the other.

    I have been working at Consumer United full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, the company is small, still in the start-up phase, but growing. There is a lot of opportunity to get involved in different areas of the business, not just what is related to your role. Also the communication from senior leaders to employees is much better than at some much larger companies I have worked at.

    Cons

    Lack of name recognition, could have more vacation days.

    Advice to Management

    keep rewarding those who do good work and keep the start-up mentality is the company grows.
