    I worked at Lakeview Consultants full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere within the company and its employees was amazing. Very relatable and supportive group of people to work with and constantly

    Cons

    The pay in the beginning was not very good but once you learn the basics and put in the time you should do great

    Advice to Management

    Be more direct about what the job is during the interview process and consider paying employees who are hired for their interview shadowing.

    Pros

    The best part of Lakeview is the atmosphere and work environment! They believe in a high energy, positive and goal oriented environment! It was a very motivating work place where you could sit down with managers one on one at anytime, planned charity events as an office and they love to spend time outside of the office together. The environment feels much like a family and very welcoming!

    Cons

    The hours are long and this job demands a lot of work ethic to be successful. So if you are looking for a job to just go to and get paid, you won't benefit here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive and high energy work environment and you'll be successful!

    I have been working at Lakeview Consultants full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a cool atmosphere and most of the people you work with are really nice. It's an uncapped commission so you have the ability to earn a lot. It's also a job that allows you to continuously move up into high salary jobs, 100,000+ so there is a lot of potential if you can stick to it and not quit.

    Cons

    They make you come in to the office every morning for two hours and if you're a trainer, you have to come back to the office for another 30 min or so. None of the office time is paid. So you work fully on commission but it's mandated you be in an office for 2+ hours of your day. It's a door to door job so you have to work in rain, heat, snow, etc. They make you wear professional dress going D2D so it gets super hot. If you're a full time trainer, you're expected to work 6 days a week. So from 12-10 every day that's about 60 hours a week. And also, when you're training someone you do not get paid any extra, so often times a trainee will take a sale in your territory and essentially take money from your pocket.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the two hour meetings in the morning or at least pay us for our time. Give some type of bonus or incentives to train, especially when the person is not even on our team. Wearing a shirt and tie every day in hot weather is completely unnecessary and it does nothing to improve sales when going D2D. Give us Verizon polos or something.

    Pros

    Great working environment if you're a "team oriented" person. Paid and hands on training. Opportunity for growth if that's what you're looking for.

    Cons

    The hours didn't really work out for me, I needed part-time for my kids and school. Which meant not being able to work over 20hrs a week. It is sales and marketing so even though there is a base involved if you miss a day it does affect you.

    Advice to Management

    None really. I think the management was pretty down to earth. They were helpful through my time there. I can also say they were really understanding of my situation when I explained why I was leaving.

    Pros

    Direct Sales, Marketing, Consulting, Strong Culture

    Cons

    Long Hours, Lack of Transparency

    Advice to Management

    Let new employees understand what is expected of them. It is difficult to have faith in management when you are blindsided by the employees' responsibilities.
