I have been working at Invenio Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Very diverse crowd of employees. Laid back as far as business attire goes. You can pretty much wear whatever. There are classes to help you develop your sales skills. Management will work with you if you don't/can't meet your sales quota. Company events are very fun and entertaining and they give away all sorts of prizes. Hours are 8-5 M-F, which is nice

Cons

The leads are not so great. 90 percent of the leads you get are no answer, disconnect, or already customers. Sales are hard to get if you are inexperienced with closing. PTO accrues at a very small rate. Very difficult to take time off. The job tends to not go anywhere if you aren't experienced with sales.

Advice to Management

Sometimes you just have to go to the doctors or get your license renewed. Life Happens. Also try not to micromanage too much. Too much pressure to meet sales quotas makes it harder to sell surprisingly.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    It is a contract position for another company so often you can relax, take it easy and surf the web. You can see your manager and he is doing the same so no danger or anything. You can apply for a job and make calls hen you are ready. Since many numbers are out of commission you can finish your day early and then relax

    Cons

    Pay is low and commissions are never realized. The target is based on so much achievement but with these companies not existing or not wanting to ever hear from you again (you mark those down) there really is no chance youc an hit the commission structure they have dreamt up.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really. Stay out of our way and we will not bug you. They do lay people off all the time but everyone here is looking to get out anyway so it often coincides. The advice is for senior management not floor manager or call coaches they get it
