    I worked at New Acquisitions full-time

    Pros

    I've met some of the most genuine people working here. From day one, I've never felt like the "new guy." The team is very welcoming and open to helping you out in any way. Whether it's explaining how to perform a certain task or explaining how certain things work, the management staff is always happy to help. The office itself is also really nice. Very modern, rustic and spacious. It has a nice vibe to it and I feel excited when I come into work.

    Cons

    The gym is in Building B as opposed to Building C, so it's a little bit of a walk away, but worth it. Also, the office itself is a little hard to map out, but once you've been there for a while, it's easy to find your way around.

    Advice to Management

    I think it'd be a great idea to expand the office into the space next to it!

    I worked at New Acquisitions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I recently left New Acquisitions to pursue my dream in acting, and have nothing but good things to say. They were more than willing to write a recommendation letter and Morgan even spoke with my current employer as a reference. I honestly believe that one of my best experiences in the work place was with New Acquisitions. Friendly environment, fast paced, and pretty laid back. Being in an atmosphere with folks around my age, all learning to grow and develop themselves really gave me the confidence that I needed to excel at New Acquisitions. I received my first promotion after only a month and a half and it was all due to what I was taught and my drive to apply it everyday. "Sales" wasn't my cup of tea and I was terrified to fail, but I'm so happy to be carrying the experience with me into my next position.

    Cons

    Everyone at new acquisitions was so willing to work with me and train me in a field that I was not cut out for in the end, it’s very competitive, very fast paced.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I have been working at New Acquisitions (Less than a year)

    Pros

    New Acquisitions has been a great change for me! I was in door to door sales for 2 years, and a little bit nervous walking into a new office atmosphere. They've made me feel right at home and made sure that I've had all of the tools and training I need before throwing me out on my own. Although you are very self-managed in this business, I have several great mentors here that are more than willing to ask any questions that I might have or just provide advice or knowledge where I might need it. Another great aspect is the base + commission pay structure. It definitely gives me the ability to be comfortable but also drive myself to get those extra incentives and commissions. I'm in the process of training to be a corporate trainer and be able to pass on to others what I have learned at my time here. I'm pretty excited to advance in the company and see where it takes me!

    Cons

    Requires self management! It was not a con for me, but you don't have anyone breathing down your neck to make sure that the work gets done. If you need someone else to motivate you and get you started everyday, this probably isn't the position for you. It's also pretty competitive, you will get left behind if you're not used to a fast paced environment.

    Advice to Management

    I think the office that you're running is only going to accelerate from here! Going out of your way to help out employees has definitely paid off and will continue to.

    I worked at New Acquisitions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The energy from everyone is through the roof. I enjoyed coming into work every day knowing I had a great position and the sky was the limit! Adam and Drake were terrific mentors and always set the tone. The success drive is most certainly there, but you have to want it every day and have to fight every day to be successful within the business. You grow every day in this business regardless of your previous work history. Great location and business professional dress code most of the time especially in the office. Great position for someone fresh out of college.

    Cons

    Once you leave “Atmosphere” (meetings 3-5 times a week depending on your role), you are sent out to sell a service or product 6 days a week. Doesn’t leave much room for a balanced work life vs. personal life. You must be on your “A” game daily if you want to move up. Errors and mistakes will occur, but you have to be strong minded and bounce back from any situation or issue. The pay is minimal an hour ($10) and all commission based. For someone that has consistent bills flowing in, it is not the position to take unless you have a good amount in your savings account.

    Advice to Management

    Great leadership overall and really appreciate the “open door” policy! Makes everyone feel welcomed and important. I really wouldn’t change anything about the way the business operates. Adam was more than helpful when it came to any situation. Very grateful for the guidance and assistance.

    I worked at New Acquisitions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    New Acquisitions is the perfect place for any entrepreneur looking to test their business sense. The management development that I received working at New Acquisitions definitely blows any other experience that I've had out of the water. Work hard towards what you want and you'll get everything you're looking for out of it. Have a student mentality and work hard with team members, but just competitive enough to drive yourself to the top. I'm not saying that it's easy and it's not for everyone. But it's the perfect place for those of us who want more than a 9-5, behind a desk all day, every day. In order to benefit from the experience you're going to need tough skin, an open mind, and be able to see the glass as half full at all times. Laziness will cause you to fall behind, and it's likely that everyone else will keep moving. I'm speaking from experience here. I was the lazy one that passed up such an opportunity. They are a competitive bunch that knows when to push each other but always willing to give a helping hand. The office atmosphere is uplifting and exciting. The receptionist greets everyone with a smile, with whatever Pandora station she's feeling that day playing in the background. Management rewards hard work, whether it's a promotion or even a dinner or a round of golf one day. You can tell that they actually care about the personal connection that they have with their employees. I started fresh out of college this past May. And I'm pretty sure that I learned more about real life business than I would've in another classroom.

    Cons

    Fortunately, New Acquisitions was my first position right out of college, and I've definitely learned that the grass ISN'T greener on the other side. Laziness will not be tolerated and it is survival of the fittest. My commute wasn't the best being that I live outside of the perimeter.

    Advice to Management

    I just appreciate the opportunity that I received here, everything that I learned along the way. I can only hope that I can invest my experience elsewhere and succeed.

    Pros

    In the time that I've worked with New Acquisitions, I've personally seen management take team members under their wing and help them get through tough times both personal and professional. They're always willing to coach us through any challenges that we face and they're great at giving feedback to help us get better. Their new office is great as well, the cafe and gym are an awesome plus!

    Cons

    The workload can seem a little overwhelming at first but it gets easier the more you learn

    I worked at New Acquisitions full-time

    Pros

    I feel well taken care of at New Acquisitions. I went through a rough time personally and the managers there were always willing to lend a listening ear and give advice. I never felt like I was alone and they helped me learn how to handle challenges and struggles in a positive and productive way. I'm so thankful for everything the team has done for me so far.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    I'm glad to work for a company that cares just as much about their team as they do about their business. It really goes a long way for company morale.

    Pros

    Nice office. Good Location in ATL.

    Cons

    A complete scam and pyramid scheme. They get you in by saying they want to hire recent college grads and help develop you to move up through the company. However, they start you off at barely minimum wage and stick you in a costco to sell products and bother customers. An absolute pyramid scheme, and not worth your time.

    I worked at New Acquisitions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One of the best things about this company is the cross training that is received. I was a recent college graduate that really did not know what I wanted to go into for a career. At New Acquisitions I was cross trained in online brand management, face to face promotional sales, and leadership training. I did not want the pressure that came with the end goal of being in a management position but do believe the skills I gained will serve me well as I go into pharmaceutical sales.

    Cons

    If your intention is to just have a clock in and out job then this company is more than likely not a good fit. I came in looking for experience and to see what parts of the company I enjoyed. There is a strong push to grow and if that is not your intention you will find this to be an environment that is too high pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Keep spending one on one time with new employees, even though I am not with the company anymore I really appreciate all the time spent in my development
