    I have been working at Impact Networking full-time

    Pros

    Impact is the hardest place I have ever worked, bar non. I am in senior sales/management here, and the level of responsibility and expectations exceeds any pressure I have ever felt. You must be outstanding at what you do to succeed here. You must have exceptional work ethic. You must be willing to be challenged and pushed by your managers. You must have unparalleled organizational skills and time management. You must be willing to make personal sacrifices for this job. You must be willing to be pushed outside your comfort zone to do things and sell in ways that you never thought you would be capable of doing.

    The best way I can describe this is equating it to a diamond being formed. You will feel intense pressure, almost to the point where you're unsure if you are able to sustain it. BUT. What you end up being after that process is the most amazing professional you imagined you could be.

    I have grown more at Impact in 2 years than the 8 years prior combined to joining here. I make two or three times as much as people my age who are doing well. I am rewarded in bonuses and trips beyond what I could imagine. The ability to be promoted to leadership quickly if you earn it is wonderful. I am surrounded by peers, colleagues, support, executives, and clients who are exceptional human being and challenge me to grow every single day.

    And NO, I was not solicited to write this review. This is completely of my own accord and my honest opinion of working at Impact Networking.

    Cons

    These are only downsides if you aren't willing to work hard and can't handle sales:

    If you are in sales, you're going to work a LOT. Like, a lot a lot. I work close to 80 hours a week. But the rewards are worth it for me now. I am not required to work 80 hours a week - most people need to work about 60 hours a week in order to do their jobs successfully.

    If you are prone to stress, this is not the job for you. You feel the weight of your world when in sales here. You are hounded by your managers and their managers, and that's just the reality of why people are successful here: the bar is extremely high. Even if you achieve it, your bar gets raised. There is no complacency here. If you cannot handle pressure, do not work here.

    Advice to Management

    I would love to see a concerted effort/programs surround diversity and female leadership at Impact. If you look at any all-company photo, the VAST majority are Caucasian people, and only about 4 females in leadership positions out of about 40. I fully believe Impact embraces diversity, but I wish that they would put more effort directly towards expanding their diversity, recruiting for multi-cultural individuals, and propelling females into leadership programs at Impact.

    Pros

    Amazing company with an excellent training program.

    Cons

    If you like to get paid for your hard work, this is the company for you. If you don't want to work hard, then you do not want to work for Impact.

    Pros

    I have been working at Impact going on 4 years since I graduated from college. The best part about Impact is the company culture. The partners do a great job facilitating a "work hard, play hard" atmosphere. There are constantly company trips, parties and get-togethers that allow the whole company to bond.

    The opportunity for growth within the company is also a huge plus. Most of the sales managers began as entry level reps. Impact loves to promote from within.

    Cons

    Competitive industry but Impact stays on the cutting edge of technology which allows us to stay a step in front of our competitors.

    Pros

    Hours are 8-5 and good location.

    Cons

    Everytime someone puts a bad review on Glassdoor, they good it a put 2 good ones dated the same day.

    Advice to Management

    You say your culture is so important. But really it's your way of alienating good potential candidates. Stop making job applicants jump through hoops. There is no need for them to be evaluated by the petty older workers you currently have. Your turn over rate would be lower if you gave diversity a shot.

    Pros

    Awesome culture, on going training, great structure. Incentives like I have never seen and consistent motivation coming from the top.

    Cons

    Impact is still very new in the Southern California market but with the way things are going, heavy branding and high level activity it's just a matter of time that Impact dominates the independent dealer market.

    Pros

    Started working at Impact in January 2018 and it has been a great ride. There is a structure to the whole process, which helps you stay organized. In a way, you are your own boss, in your territory, and you manage your own time; just make sure you are achieving the activity that is required. Managers and specialists are always available to help, answer questions, and provide support. Upper management is always accessible and constantly looking for ways to help us do a better job. The incentives and the training provided is top-notch. And the culture is the icing in the cake: we work hard, but also play hard and celebrate every individual's achievements, no matter what. The future is NOW for LA!

    Cons

    As with any job, there is a learning curve with the processes, and you can expect some extra time after 5pm while you adapt. But it is worth it.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing an excellent job: staying on top of trends, constantly looking for ways to grow, praising and sharing each person's success. Please continue to do that. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Pros

    Great culture to work with. Makes coming to work every day enjoyable. The main partners of the company are taking the company in the right direction with a lot of growth and investing a tremendous amount into where the industry in heading. A lot of recognition and rewards when going above and beyond. Whether you are in sales, admin, warehouse or service; the company all has the same goal. Truly a world class organization.

    Cons

    Sales is not for everyone. Prospecting can be uncomfortable for some people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your employees.
