    Pros

    Meeting new people. Fostering long-term friendships. Learning what NOT to do and how NOT to run a company.

    Cons

    Outsourcing companies like this believe that they are your last resort. Because they are in the business of putting in the lowest bid to obtain and keep contracts, the employees are the ones that usual take the hit for that.

    Advice to Management

    If you pay, they will stay, and give their all! You hire adults not children. If an adult behaves like a child (whether in management or lower level) then get rid of them. If you think highly of yourselves then you will attract and keep decent people. Pay close attention to the needs of the ones on the lower levels...they are the ones that have hands on experience with the clients. You can't make a peach cobbler from lemons. That goes for your employees, your equipment, and supplies.

    Get up to date. Revitalize an attitude of winning. Remind management where they once started. Show concern for the inequities that the reps are taking to the street. Consider some business training, start with Business 101, for the management team.
