    I worked at Granite Telecommunications full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great base salary, tons of bonus opportunities, great benefits, professional office culture, the CEO leads by example and is on the sales floor at the corporate headquarters making calls right next to his employees. I've never seen someone walk the walk like granite does

    Cons

    It's sales so if you don't like cold calling this isn't the job for you All direct sales

    Great environment for sales and long term growth if you can succeed. Easy to make great relationships with coworkers. No risk of bankruptcy or sweeping job cuts

    Management can be inflexible in tactics and community. Management and offices are out of date. “Do or die” atmosphere which can also be a pro.
