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

    Pros

    I have been with the company for a little less than a month now and it’s been a wonderful experience so far! The culture is what has impressed me the most. From the recruiters, HR, the new-hire trainers, and of course upper management and their open-door policy. It feels like family here. The CEO and President have groomed and promoted lots of smart people who, with dedication and hard work, have moved up within the company. The company is continuing to grow and are always looking for talented people!! I want to be part of that growth – professionally, personally, and financially. I will be making my IMPACT here!!! This IS exactly where I want to be!

    Cons

    The vacation days are on the low side but management is always willing to work with you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

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

    Pros

    An organization that’s grown 27% year over year. In order to maintain that growth the company is consistsntly looking for areas to improve. As demonstrated by revamping of training for all employees, as well as continuing to expand best in breed services. Ridiculously strong comp plan that will have a sales rep earning $100k inside 3 years and $250k by 5 years. Although the costs of health insurance have only increased this cost has been absorbed by the company. All reps have the option to use an Impact vehicle. Impact offers almost a 1:1 ratio of sales to support for all services. Amazing services that are applicable to all small & medium sized businesses.

    Cons

    It was training for the sake of training, missing measurable goals/objectives. But like I said earlier, leadership at Impact is always looking to better ourselves and with the rollout of Impact’s new ongoing training program this has been addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t stop doing what you’re doing!

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

    Pros

    Lots of fun
    Managers are really talented sales people
    Company car and awesome offices
    Lots of room to work on your own
    Managers really want you to succeed
    Lots of success stories

    Cons

    Trainer is terrible and unprofessional and wouldn’t be able to sell anything, please have an internal review on the trainer.
    You can not enter your logs for foot blitz visits at work so you have to do it after work and that adds so much time to your day that you don’t work they say you don’t have to work after work but you get in trouble for logging your day at work. Takes away from work life balance
    They make you sign a bogus paper that says you will pay back training
    While it’s not a huge point, just something I’d like to see, is diversity in leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Work at impact is a risk. Be very wary of what they promise. Rethink your training, and have a review on the lead. Help sales more with work life balance so they don’t spend 20-30 hours a week outside work typing in info that we are not allowed to do at work. But on the plus side continue to all the things you are doing right. I met a lot of great people at impact.

    Advice to Management

    When your business model and products change you need to go about selling them in different ways. Not just churning and burning fresh out of college kids.

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

    Pros

    There’s been a lot of growth and a lot of building changes and renovations. There are rising desks, kegs in offices, sales blitz’s, and good people. The employees are probably the best part because they’re young full of energy and great to work with and learn off of. Great culture and opportunity to learn discipline and hard work.

    Cons

    They definitely do a great job at over selling themselves to college kids looking for a career, with hope for a lot of success. Impact looks really good on the surface. Most people in your boot camp, 70-80%, won’t last a full year. Expect great friendships, but don’t expect Impact to keep you or your teammates around unless you’re making at lot of money for yourself at 6months in.

    Expect working 60-70 hours a week because of tedious data entry for the first 3 months and the added confusion of figuring out what product is best to sell in your territory.

    Advice to Management

    Keep training once a week and get rid of the culture ‘I had it worse then you.’ Every Company should invest in their people, to be competitive in their industry.

    Have a better understanding of your product line within your market. Are you a copier company or are you not? Find a consistent message for your sales reps to go off of.

    I have been working at Impact Networking full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Impact's most important core value is Culture. Culture is important for the clients and employees. Naturally, when you treat the employees well it's going to spill over into the customer space.

    I started as an entry level sales rep four years ago and worked my way up to Branch Sales Manager very quickly. Impact believes in promoting from within and truly taking care of the employees.

    As an entry level sales rep you will have more support from specialists, management, and peers than you will know what to do with. All you have to do is put the activity in and the rest of the team will help you be successful while you learn the Impact process.

    Cons

    The only con evolves into a pro. You will work hard especially as an entry level rep but if you stick with it, the opportunities are endless. I moved into a management role very quickly because I put in the work and stuck with it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you're doing. The culture is unlike anything I've ever seen or heard of. Impact has always invested heavily in their employees and I've really appreciated that over the years.

    Cons

    -50plus hours minimum to be successful at least in the beginning of your career

    Pros

    Great place to be and learn about yourself and business. Comprehensive training programs and winning culture with a unique business model. Could not be more excited to be at this company and they truly give you the tools and the support to grow and be successful. There are tried and true methods and a flat but transparent perspective palpable throughout the company. Open door policy and talk about liking the people you work with! I just gained a family of 450+ people and growing, you can bet I will grow alongside it until they kick me out of here.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work your butt off and you'll be fine

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Team spirit and positive attitudes are the very best reasons to work at this company.
    Each and every person who works within these Impact walls is committed to excellence and gives 110% effort to one another to achieve the best possible outcome. I have met so many wonderful people and would highly recommend if given the opportunity to work at this mind blowing company filled with passion and hard work and most importantly pride.

    Cons

    There is not one I can think of, working at Impact has been one of the best experiences of my life.

    Advice to Management

    Keep spreading the word that Impact is the best because it truly is.
