Pros

- Good Sales Training
- Lots of after-work functions
- Complete meritocracy / Organically grown company
- You can make a lot of money...but usually after a few years.

Cons

- Very poor work / desk set up...absolutely zero privacy!
- Only one break a day from 1-2pm...that's it.
- Hours are 9am - 6pm (but you are expected to stay later...and even come in on weekends).
- Management can be very condescending and disrespectful...(they love to make a big deal out of anything...in front of everyone...throwing in a few cuss words for kicks).
- Very poor work-life balance...you will usually leave the office after 7pm daily...so on average you will work 10+ hours per day.
- Lots...lots...lots of stress!
- Very micromanaged setting - KPI's & daily setups down the the minutes!
- Not a flexible environment at all...you can never be late...ever...no matter the situation...or you will be reprimanded and forced to cover the phones for 3 days...allowing you only a 30 minute lunch break for those days!!!

The list can go on forever...but I would be here for days. In a nutshell...not the best place to work for unless you don't mind living and breathing Huxley...and completely giving up any sort of social life outside of Huxley...without making any real money until you've been brainwashed after a few years...like I almost was!

Advice to Management

Loosen up a bit...adapt to the American way of life...ease up on the foul language in the office...keep things professional...stop with the silly competitions (they just add lots of unneeded pressure to an already stressful environment)...and just BE HONEST...stop trying to sell us a dream!

    I have been working at Huxley full-time

    Pros

    Geen pluspunten, er zijn enkel minpunten aan dit bedrijf.

    Cons

    Om hier te werken moet je op z'n minst narcistisch ingesteld zijn. Er hangt een gespannen, stressvolle sfeer. Management profiteert op kap van de werknemers. Management zijn voornamelijk blaaskaken die denken dat ze de bedrijfswereld hebben uitgevonden en totaal niet kijken naar het talent en potentieel van hun werknemers.

    Advice to Management

    Customer service bestaat niet. Het enige wat telt is geld. Niet moeilijk dat iedereen na korte tijd steeds weg wil!
