    I have been working at Impact Networking full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with Impact is a great experience. It’s the first job I’ve had after college, and I’ve really lucked out. I did my research and saw that Impact had won a lot of awards for company culture, and it’s definitely lived up to the hype.

    Everyone from the CEO on down is invested in my professional growth, which is an awesome feeling. It’s a very positive work environment with supportive coworkers who want to see people succeed as individuals.

    Everyone is on board for the growth of the company as well, and C-level employees and managers ensure that we all benefit from the growth and changes. It’s a competitive industry and Impact really shines in being a workplace where people know that their contributions are valuable.

    Cons

    There really aren't many cons to working here. And the nice part is that if any issues do come up, people will work with you to sort them out.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep it up. People really appreciate the work that is put in to make Impact a great place to work.

    I worked at Impact Networking full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Loved my teammates and made a couple good friends. The HR girls were very nice and helpful, some of the things that go on within the organization are completely inappropriate and they should be shameful. 100 best places to work, that's a complete joke.

    Cons

    Management is a sad excuse for the title they hold. Unqualified, they solely promote the party style they live to get people hooked.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone who 1. Is qualified 2. Is there to motivate 3. Who isn't threatened by others in the workplace

    I have been working at Impact Networking full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Exciting energetic environment. Great perks (Trips, swag, dinners.) Employees are recognized for success. Many places say they 'Work hard and play hard'. This place actually does the play hard. Growing quickly and lots of growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Not a place to hide. Asks a lot from employees. Must be very loyal. Managers can be pushy.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers are too high strung and manage everyone the same. Sometimes they need to use the carrot and not just the stick.

    Pros

    I have been with Impact for over 15 years. The work environment is fun and exciting that keeps getting better and better through the years. Impact's growth, forward thinking, and the workplace atmosphere turns work into fun.
    Impact is a place that people can be themselves. The management listens and responds to new thoughts and creative ideas.
    The training Impact provides is fantastic. The trainers and management staff focus on what is current and prevalent in the marketplace.
    Everyone is provided with the best technology to help them with their jobs . Even Impact's facilities are outfitted with all the latest and greatest.
    Impact is a company that cares about it's employees and it's customers. This means the most to me.
    If you are looking for a fun career instead of a job this is the place.

    Impact is consistently over achieving and does not have a con I can list

    I worked at Impact Networking full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good learning experience for entry level sales people, if knocking on doors and pounding the streets is your motto. Overall, if you succeed that it feels great and you can succeed in most any other sales role in your future.

    Cons

    Very long hours, work/life balance isn't there, management needs better structure, under paid for work you put in, poor professionalism/coaching at times.

    Advice to Management

    CEO of company is great. He personally takes are of his employees. Keep it up.
