I worked at Flashbay full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Flashbay is a great place to make money. The company has many team and company events which for me as a foreigner, helped me to settle down in London. The work is fast-paced and enjoyable.

Cons

Not too many downsides. You are removed from receiving new leads when you take a holiday but I guess that's understandable as you need to catch up.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    Commission scheme is very rewarding and motivating. It's also very transparent so you get to see how much you earn for each sale. Location is nice and the offices are very diverse with people coming from all over Europe.

    Cons

    Career progression at the moment seems fairly limited as a sales account manager. There are openings for promotion to become a group leader however these are infrequent.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Fairly nice location
    - You will get hired easily

    Cons

    - The management is strict about even the most useles thing, for example come late 1 min and you get a phone call from your manager telling you off harshly (by the way the manager almost never talks to you otherwise)
    - The management doesn't care about you developing in the company, on the contrary they like people to come and go because everybody needs to be replaceable and they like to bully people, obviously much easier with new staff
    - Not a single day of holiday in the first 6 months
    - Forget about even seeing your doctor during office hours, they would let you doing that too
    - Because it's not possible to make cold calls, you can't make decent money there unless they assign you good customers (they are mostly right now assigned to old staff or they give every now and then to people they like) and you work in a market where they are doing extremely good
    - A lot of dissatisfied customers but they don't show them as they ask for review only the ones that confirm they are
    - very easy to get fired (which I guess it's understandable looking at how easy is to get hired)
    - They like to punish people. If you are out of the office sick even for one day, the following day they turn off your leads so you don't get new business in

    Advice to Management

    - Try and give people opportunities and you might get real salespeople in the company
