Cons

-Low pay ($12/hr with no overtime)
-One-time pay out of commission. No Residual
-Product DOES NOT work
-Sales associates have to (not want to) lie in order to sell the product bc it is so bad
-Customers cancel within the first 90 days of a 12 month contract bc the product does not work
-Local news stations are trying to cancel their agreements with Datasphere bc it is untrustworthy

Advice to Management

Your business model is so poor, you'd be better off firing everyone and starting from scratch or closing your doors entirely.

    I have been working at DataSphere Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours are 7am -4pm or 6am -3pm get up early do your job and go home. The team is environment is the best. The sales is easy and not very stressful if you are experienced but if you are not you will struggle. When you make commission at least in my product I sold it was the best. If you manages to stay six months and have high talk time and hit quota another company will head hunt you right out of there with better pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Inconsistent policies making Senior AE is a joke. They keep changing the qualifications so lesser people make it. The pay is the lowest in the media & advertising industry and no one stays. There is an inexperienced operations person and most people in the position never worked the position in other companies to give a good outlook. The benefits are the worst and the company meetings are useless.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency, quality and experience in everything you do will make a huge difference in your culture and longevity. Wonder why you have not been on best places to work? Walk around the sales floor and ask!

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

    Pros

    Work-life balance
    Great coworkers
    Plenty of paid time off
    High Commission potential

    Cons

    Very low base salary
    Communication disconnect between departments, sales/ad creation department. I've lost a few sales due to their focus on how quickly they can finish a customers order instead of taking the time to work with the customer to make it right the first time.

    Advice to Management

    The base pay is the lowest in the industry. It would be awesome if it was raised after your 1 year anniversary.
