    Pros

    It isn't hard work by any means. In fact, it can be some of the easiest work you will ever have. Expect long, long hours surfing the web, while trying to hide the fact that you are spending long, long hours surfing the web. Occasionally there will be bursts of excitement, and sales, which leads us to the cons...

    Cons

    Hey, you like sales, right? The thrill of the hunt, and working your butt of for a commission. Yeah, good luck with that. In my 3 years with the company we did not have a single commission plan that lasted more than a few weeks, and if you actually met the requirements, the goals were randomly moved so that, guess what, you didn't actually meet them at all, didn't you get the email?

    There were many, MANY times where you would meet with managerial incompetence the likes of which left me wondering if this was an actual company, or some weird "Producers"-esque tax dodge in which the CEO could make a mint if he just dragged the company down fast enough. Other reviewers have spoke of the cliques, and the nepotism that permeates throughout the entire company, and they are completely right. The folks hired to be team leads and managers often, just so happened, to be the same ones that hung out with the CEO and other managers after work. Surprise, surprise, surprise.

    There are little to no bennifits offered the workers, in fact we had to fight just to get sick pay. When I first started I worked one of the busy seasons as an hourly employee, then they made me salary, then back to hourly, just so they could lower my pay rate. Of course those that called out the sales manager on this were let go quite quickly.

    The complaints about hiring anyone who can pass the test are true. Temps would be brought in for campaigns, and bathrooms would be destroyed, items stolen, and fights had. For a few months out of every year the office turned into a zoo.

    They also gave us fruit at one point, which was nice. That only lasted about a week.

    Advice to Management

    If you are trying to Titanic the company, keep it up. But remember, licenses are EXPENSIVE, maybe try treating your workers with some modicum of respect and dignity, and they will stick around longer, thus returning on the INVESTMENT you made on them.
