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

Pros

Awesome employees, no dress code, "come as you are" attitude (as long as you can sell)

Cons

High pressure, selling products that do not work or look like crap, which will result in you ending up with guilt and lowering your productivity

Advice to Management

Less micro managing. Get to know your sales people and their strength and weakness and work with each person individually.

    Cons

    Hired unqualified leadership. Those who didn't perform were ignored. You could go a day without a sale and you were looked down upon. Pay is low compared to the Washington location. Be ready for tons of change constantly. Very entry level sales. Tons of pressure that mounts up quickly. Do not call sales are abundant. Lots of cancels ...

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow your potential stars to roam unattended. They will find work elsewhere.
