    Pros

    Our associates are the best of the best. We operate at a level of integrity and respect far beyond usual corporate expectations. This is the most transparent company you will find. We truly care about the success and growth potential of every candidate. As long as you are willing to invest in your own success, we are more than willing to invest in you! Your work ethic will determine your success and your income. Feel free to give yourself a raise anytime. We will come alongside you and show you how. 150-200 k in a few years is truly accessible.

    Cons

    This is the most worthwhile work you could do and the most difficult simultaneously. Saving a nation is hard work. You must be a hunter who can manage attitude and effort. Fearlessness is necessary when cold calling. 100% commission means there is no guarantee and no cap on earnings.

    Advice to Management

    We are in a tremendous growth cycle which means there is huge potential for management opportunities.

    Pros

    National Write Your Congressman has been a wonderful opportunity for me. My life has improved immensely since I have been here, both professionally and personally. Every day is different. The business owners I get to spend time with, whether they buy from me or not, appreciate what we do. I am always recognized for my performance and when I occasionally struggle(no, it is not often), someone always lifts me up. The NWYC culture is one you will not find at many companies and you feel it.

    Cons

    You have to get out of bed and go to work. I am not watched over like a hawk, so I have to be responsible with the freedom of working independently.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not change.

    Pros

    The people are great here. Everybody has a caring sprite. This has been what has kept me here as long as I've been here!

    Cons

    Oh god, where do I start? So many and too many to mention! This is a turn and burn! The daily grind will eat you and your car alive!

    Pros

    I love working with a company where I am paid well for my efforts AND I get to make a difference in the type of country I am leaving to my kids and Grandkids.

    Cons

    There are only so many people you can reach. While doing this work you have such a strong desire to let everyone know how they can be more involved and yet there are only so many you can see in a day.

    Pros

    Culture that encourages risk and has tremendous rewards. Owners that care about the people working here. A great training program that shows how much we care.

    Cons

    Making our name better known so we aren't the best kept secret anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the field. Never get too far away from the direct salespeople we have.

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

    Pros

    Simply the best training and employer I have ever had in my long career. Not only does a new sales rep get some great in-field training and support the first month and more, the rep then gets to go to an advanced training at headquarters in TX- so useful and well formatted!
    In addition, the job to help small businesses gain an effective voice to Congress and receive actual facts and updates is what our Founding Fathers would be very proud of!
    If outside sales is in your general interest, this is for you.

    Cons

    Independent contractor position, but NWYC helps support the ability to put aside the taxes and insurance money needed.
    Orders still done somewhat manually and on the computer also, could be streamlined.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the impressive training format and support, it really makes a difference!

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

    Pros

    It is my job, like my own business. I get paid well for my hard work. I get to keep my book of business year after year by renewing them in person, so I make more money every year. The company has been around a long time. The training is good and they don't just forget about you.

    Cons

    The first year, especially the first few months were not the easiest. I had to learn a presentations to start and they are serious about that. It was worth it, though.
