    I worked at Erb's Technology Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Most work well together and will help out in any way. Fun atomosphere. Ability to sell your own way - although many tips and advice are given for guidance. Small company - feels like family. Will miss working for Erbs!

    Cons

    No room for growth. Quotas set to high to reach. Lots of cold calling with self-made lists via google (no hoovers released to sales department, yet). Compensation is low. My position was marketed differently than what it became. Low morale in sales department.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with employees on changes and be sure all are aware and on the same page.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Erb's Technology Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am just typing this so I can get my 20 word minimum. This place does not have any pros that I can think of. None that matter anyway. I will be gone as soon as I find another job.

    Cons

    Very low morale.
    Very low compensation.
    Management acts like they are better than you.
    Mike Brogan is a very bad man, just an ugly personality, no heart.
    No advancement opportunities.
    Very negative work environment.
    Cold calling expected everyday.
    Lots of "management" only meetings.
    Managers all have ownership in business which is bad for those who do not have ownership.
    Lots of bad karma going around this place.

    Advice to Management

    No advice given could help at this point. Time to clean house or close doors.

    I worked at Erb's Technology Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    NIce building, that's about it.

    Cons

    Bad management. If you are not directly making the "management" money, whom by the way ALL have ownership in the business, you will be fired on the spot. Very high turnover rate. They do not try to help you develop your skills. If you love cold calling ALL day, then this is your job. Give you nothing to work with, which includes accounts. You will forever be on bottom if you stay at this company. Horrible compensation that will leave you barely able to live. Many more horror stories with this place. STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves

    I worked at Erb's Technology Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Awesome clients. Opportunities to continually learn industry and products.

    Cons

    Management. Marketing manager runs the company and is not effective in building relationships with staff or clients. Pay structure. Zero growth opp.

    Advice to Management

    Expectations of job and role need to be consistent. Run the business in your capacity and not let 1 employee steam roll staff.
