I worked at Strategic Value Media full-time

Pros

The only pros I can give for this job is the base pay is strong and the group of people you work with, it is a great group of people that gets you thru the day.

Cons

To begin the job itself is very repetitive and can the day can really drag on. Making 150-200 calls a day to the same people over and over gets old. The biggest cons though come from the company itself. They want you to con and lie to people to get information and they ask you to consistently be dishonest to get sales to the point I started using an alias full time because I felt so bad about it. The management will micro manage the hell out of you. Being 1 minute late will get you into trouble and you are babysat like you're in middle school. They make poor interview people sit there for an hour before they bring you back, ive also witnessed numerous accounts of management belittling and downgrading newer employees to senior sales reps. It is a very unprofessional and poorly run dishonest group and I witnessed at least 75-100+ people quit because of these reasons. They also asked employees to stop our day and write positive glassdoor reviews to make themselves look better

Advice to Management

Complete overhaul, give way more reasonable and attainable commision structure, support your employees to succeed not play favoritism and have honesty with the sales process

    I worked at Strategic Value Media full-time

    Pros

    Not much pros. You can potentially make a lot of money but you are selling a scamming product for a ridiculous price. If you are ok selling your soul this might be the place for you. Management is nice and super helpful.

    Cons

    They are strict about the hours and when you took your lunch. I felt like I was back in high school. The competitive base pay was not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Let people know exactly what they are getting into before they start. Maybe some Shawdoing or something. It will help with turn over.
