Pros

The people. Everyone that works at the corporate office clearly enjoys what they do, has passions outside of work, and has fun while working hard. No one walks away from a challenge, and is eager to collaborate on projects outside their job description. In an industry where there is constant change, it's nice to work in an environment where the people are both grounded and fun.

The job. Because the company is still pretty small, I've gotten to work with virtually everyone on some sort of project. Everything moves rapidly, and projects vary greatly, but the flexibility of working on new and exciting stuff everyday is awesome.

Cons

Somewhat risky startup environment. Benefits are good, not great. Not a huge emphasis on personal growth and development at the corporate level.

Advice to Management

Let your corporate staff know they are loved and appreciated, and don't be afraid to ask individuals the tough questions.

    Pros

    I have learned a lot in door to door sales and basic B2C sales universe, pay is not bad if you can master the sales.

    Cons

    When I was at the office, their operation and workflow did not make much sense, to have account manager work through the entire sales operation from lead generation to after sales is daunting for most employees.

    I worked at Gen110 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - You are allowed a decent amount of freedom to essentially run your own business
    - You can make pretty good money if you work very hard for a long period of time
    - The opportunity for advancement exists if you perform well
    - Upper level management acted as good mentors and the culture of the job was very relaxed

    Cons

    - The hours isolate you from those with regular jobs. Irregular work weeks (Tuesday - Saturday) and hours (11ish to 7ish) make a legitimate work/life balance difficult.
    - You are expected to perform at a high level from very early on in your employment which leads to a high turnover rate.
    - Unless you are excellent at this job it is very hard to make a decent living due to commission/bonuses being such a large component of your salary.
    - Customers are often flaky and require a huge amount of persistence and nagging to complete sales. If you are not able to be persistent, accept heavy amounts of rejection and have a good sense of people and their interest level, this job is definitely not for you
    - Not the traditional job by any means and I would have a very hard time recommending working here to friends.

    Advice to Management

    - Some approaches do not work in every environment and thus need to be adjusted as needed. I felt too restricted by practices that didn't always work to the level that they were described to.
    - Relationship building is obviously the crux of this business, but a higher level of visibility through some creative, low cost advertising would benefit the business
