I worked at Strategic Value Media full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The people below management are the only positive.

Cons

Hands down the worst experience I've ever had. I don't think I could've disliked working for this place more than I did. I actually think to myself at my current new job if I have a bad day, "Well at least I'm not working at that poor excuse for a company SVM." I was also not the only person to think this. Actually everyone below management thinks this; however there is likely a gap in communication with the higher ups who truly do not see how miserable their employees are. All around painful and if you are looking for a job I HIGHLY suggest looking anywhere but here.

Advice to Management

I want you to know I left this job for a different position that paid me less money. I took less than the base salary just to leave because of how bad of a company, experience, and job this was. There is no real change I can offer other than stop lying to people when you're hiring them about what the job entails and maybe stop telling them to lie straight up to the people you're forcing them to call 10 times in a row. In truth, you made this job the worst professional experience of my life and I pity any person that follows.

Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry to hear you did not have a positive experience here. Your experience at SVM is clearly not the norm and it is quite surprising to hear this kind of... More

    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
