I worked at hibu full-time (More than a year)

Pros

At least you have a job and get a paycheck. The company is trying to transition from phone book products.

Cons

The culture is do whatever is takes to get the customer to sign the contract. You know that you are selling inferior products to competition and any existing customers have no idea they are wasting their money.

    I worked at hibu full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Independent position where direct management leaves you alone to handle your own business.

    Cons

    Constant threat of being terminated if you do not hit your new business quota each month. Year round deployment leaves you with no print renewals half of the year and thus very little opportunity for consistent commissions. They completely ignore their current customer base who is responsible for 70% of the company's revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Need to focus more attention on the current customer base and stop putting so much attention on new business. It takes 8-10 times more time and money to sign up a new account then to resign a current customer. You have a established customer base, focus on them and renew and increase them first. Once this business is gone they are not coming back.
