    An upwardly mobile, fast growing company that cares about their people

    Pros

    Set your own hours, work from home and huge incentives. The best training on-line, by teleconference, and in person that go well beyond building a book of business. A great way to get your feet wet in sales with NO RISK. Socially responsible by actions, they walk the talk. I never met a more honest crew in a leadership capacity. Even the CEO finds time to sit and answer questions with sales staff on the fly. They hold true interest in their reps and it comes from sincerity in the heart!

    Cons

    It is a 3-5 year time frame to replace a full time income, no traditional benefits, straight commission.

    So long

    Pros

    The company was great at establishing a solid work-life balance with a lot of flexability to work from home as needed. There were several employees that worked remotely full-time and several that worked remotely part-time. Overall good solid coworkers.

    Cons

    NAP was always willing to fire or layoff staff as it outgrew their skills or changed directions. Being acquired by Calpine took it to a new level with large layoffs. I also never encountered a Calpine employee or contractor that I would want to work with, just a really terrible experience

    Lack of ethics, vision, and strategy

    Pros

    nice office space with free coffee

    Cons

    If you are related to the owner or his friends, then you will have to do a minimum amount of work and get paid well. All other employees work to make up for those lucky few and are not paid as well. This company gouges customers to make money, and needs to figure out how to make money the honest way.

    Educational and eye opening.

    Pros

    The hours and flexible schedule were helpful. Good benefits with some cool perks. Beautiful open floor office plan. Entrepreneurial feel.

    Cons

    Textbook example of why an HR department is necessary: consistent harassment and intimidation by higher ups. Virtually no oversight or accountability regarding employee productivity. Cultural norm from top down to abuse hours and schedule. Nepotistic and blatant factionalism. Be a relative or get "under" a higher up.
