      Pros

      What I liked. It was the first sales job I had where women ( coworkers) supported each other and cheered you on. They totally knew how to motivate you with money and the money was good.

      Cons

      From 2016 - 2019 massive lay offs and firing of management.

      Pros

      You can read on with the reviews left by "disgruntled" employees that were laid off because of their poor performances and lazy attitude or you can read this true review of a company that I actually still work for. I've worked for this company for many years. I'm one of just a few. Those that have left reviews prior to this are just disgruntled because they were given chance after chance to better their performances and instead chose to stay lazy mooching off of the company...So of course, they were laid off. You can see their bitterness below in their reviews. They should have been laid off much sooner. The truth of the matter is that this company IAW provides tremendous value and benefit for Women wanting great networking, education, events, mentorship, ecoaching and a plethora of numerous items to choose from. Go to a chapter meeting in your state and see what I mean. The proof is in the pudding. Wonderful Women! Great Benefits! Value!

      Cons

      Ex-Employees who can't just move on with their lives after being laid off

      Don't Take This Job

      Pros

      You get to work with kind, likeminded women.

      Cons

      The product is sold over the phone to uninformed customers for an astronomical price, and the management gets in the way of you doing your job properly. Throughout training, you learn a lot about how to sell the memberships, but very little about what the memberships actually entail. If you're a new employee, all of your leads will be months old with over 45 calls on their log. When you can't get them on the phone, let alone sell to them, management will insist you're 1. not calling fast enough, 2. not being patient, 3. bad at closing. You get talked down to a lot and management insist they want to help you, but when you tell them what you need they are unable to provide support. Ultimately, this company makes money off uninformed customers being scammed by uninformed employees about a product worth less than they're selling it for. IAW is no different than NAPW.

      Rebranded with a new name- still NAPW

      Pros

      I started working with NAPW in 2013 back when they had some modicum of integrity. Little did I know what I got into. Deceptive sales practices, blatant favoritism, however back then under Matt Proman ( who also has questionable character, google him) there was money to be made. They actually offered things like conferences women could attend etc.

      Cons

      Sold the company to corporate leech PDN and it has gone downhill. Mass layoffs, garbage leads, misleading women into spending hundreds and thousands in fake networking. Now they’ve changed their name from NAPW To IAW but still the same garbage company it always has been.

      Pros

      FIrst and foremost, the money. It you have experience in Sales with an ability to be consistent and determined, you will hit your numbers without a problem. The bonus structure is exceptionally generous and makes the hours worth it. Getting a weekly paycheck was very nice, and I was easily clearing $4000/month. On top of the bonus structure there are also incentives through out the week to hit your goals. They atmosphere is very professional and except for a few key players, is predominantly a woman run office. It is also very competitive which I appreciate. Everyone always knows where they stand in numbers within the company as far as performance, which also help with motivation. Hours are semi-flexible, you work on a weekly salary and need to hit your hours for the week. The product is great. I found it easy to be behind the company and concept of empowering women to succeed in their personal and professional lives.

      Cons

      The hours can be rough with a very early start if you're working, like I did, on the West Coast, but is great if you have kids in school as you're always out by the early afternoon. The leads are hit and miss, which is why consistency is of the up most importance. This is not a job for the easily discouraged.

      Pros

      The one or two friends who won't stab you in the back and will actually become really good friends

      Cons

      HORRIBLE place to work. You will be taking home about $340. They tell you it's easy money •200 call minimum •10 pitch minimum •Closing Ration MUST BE : 25-40% •Weekly Sales Minimum: $500 • 2 - 15 min breaks where you MUST sign in and out • 55 min lunch break which your entitled to but your going to need money so your going to end up working through •you work with all women from management down- there is favoritism, backstabbing and you won't last a month •HR is horrible •management is even worse •you can not talk you will be reprimanded •every time you leave the office or your desk it is noticed and you must sign a sheet. Like high school • extremely high turnover • all the positive reviews on here were placed by upper management - they asked existing employees to fill out a pro and con list of working here - used the cons and bam. Napw is a great place to work. •star jones does not give a crap about the NAPW or anyone in it. It's just a $300,000 yearly salary plus more money for her. She treats employees like crap. •everyone who works there goes home crying almost every night working about loosing their jobs, cars, home, apts, bills, ext.... By people are- yet this is a women's organization yet HR who used to be sales reps fires every Thursday or Friday. For not making quota, going to the bathroom, being sick, having no car to get there on time be you had to give up your car bc you can't pay for it anymore.

      Phone Sales

      Pros

      Fair W-2 weekly guaranteed base salary for phone sales PLUS unlimited earnings potential from commissions & bonuses provided you are trainable with a strong work ethic. No nights or weekends required (M-F 9-5:15 with lunch hour). No after hours project, phone or paper work. Beautiful modern environment with upbeat corporate culture. Excellent & effective 3 week training program for new reps. Policy made crystal clear via comprehensive employee handbook.

      Cons

      High stress environment requiring persistent productivity. Must work smart with good time management in order to meet weekly quota levels which determine income. If not a good producer, you will not make much money and will not last. If you like lots of smoke breaks & the freedom to chit chat with coworkers freely in the workspace.....not the place for you.

      Current Employee, less than 1 year

      Pros

      Very Nice highly secured building. Probably so the public and feds can't easily get in.

      Cons

      Being mislead at the interview. This is a Boiler Room, One-Call, Lie and get their credit card operation. Do not tell the customer that there is Not a Spring Conference nor local chapters if there isn't any in their town. Pathetic that the likes of Star Jones, Martha Stewart, Barbara Cochran, etc will do anything for an Appearance Fee! There is no difference between the $199 Intro and the $99 Trial and when you ask questions you get yelled out. Public Beware! Women do not work here...they violate labor laws by not paying you for overtime, docking your pay for being late, and withholding leads so that you don't make quota, but the company gets to keep you lousy ten percent. The women working here are called "Girls" not respected, get in trouble for going off script (which is a con). Pregnant women here don't know their maternity rights. THIS PLACE SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED AND SHUT DOWN.
