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

    Pros

    The most motivating, uplifting environment I've ever worked in. Oryx Nashville is a family that values determination, team spirit, and a positive attitude. If you're looking for growth, this company promotes from within based on merit. Employees who put in the effort will become their own boss in no time.

    Cons

    Not enough time in a day to spend with all of these amazing folks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building people up and providing excellent opportunities. Basically, just keep doing what you're doing.

    I worked at Oryx full-time

    Pros

    relationships
    experience
    helps feel at home when you move here for the job

    Cons

    the hours
    the pay
    no life outside of work
    definitely a pyramid scheme even though they tell you its not....
    working in Walmart and being told "no" all day long

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with people that are coming to work. The base guarantee is not really there and it all depends on how much commission you make. The job description is a lie also because it says "pay on base, commission, and bonuses" when I was working there I never saw a bonus on my paycheck and if you make more then the guarantee you can kiss the base goodbye but wait if you are in the draw you better believe that they will take the money that you worked hard for and keep it because you owe them it.

    Now lets look at the definition of a pyramid scheme:
    "In a pyramid scheme, an organization compels individuals who wish to join to make a payment. In exchange, the organization promises its new members a share of the money taken from every additional member that they recruit. The directors of the organization (those at the top of the pyramid) also receive a share of these payments. For the directors, the scheme is potentially lucrative—whether or not they do any work, the organization's membership has a strong incentive to continue recruiting and funneling money to the top of the pyramid."
    As just an account manager you will not make any money off of the people below you but as an assistant manager and above you will make money off people. Its not coming straight from the person its self but they do get money for you doing your job. They are always recruiting and hiring new people because you are just a body to them.

    Also the positive reviews on here are done by other owners in the business.

    Pros

    There are many pros about being part of the Oryx Nashville team. The culture/team-oriented environment is one of the best because it makes going to work so enjoyable and something I always look forward to. We all share similar goals in life, so getting to work toward those goals with your friends differentiates Oryx from other companies. Everyone is so encouraging, always willing to help however possible, and pushing you to continuously grow and reach your goals.

    Cons

    I have no cons about working here.

    Advice to Management
