    Pros

    Family environment, up-beat, changes lives, excited to come to work.

    Cons

    No cons come to mind.

    Advice to Management

    For Black Friday my daycare was closed. As a single mother, being able to bring my son to work added so much more appreciation for my bosses and my company. I'm truly grateful to work for a company that loves their employees as if they were family. I've recently moved to Nashville and the entire team has taken me under their wing. I am so excited to have found this gem of a workplace and can’t wait for the future endeavors that will take place!

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

    Pros

    I love the performance based pay aspect of the business. I used to work for a company that paid hourly regardless of how hard I worked and it made me frustrated because I prefer to be paid based on my performance. I truly appreciate the things I learned and the money I gained while with Oryx Nashville. One of the best jobs I ever had. Would recommend this job to others

    Cons

    Hard work and a willingness to make personal changes. You will also be held accountable for your actions which is an aspect I really enjoyed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing!!!

    Pros

    Learning from the ground up, who you were yesterday makes no difference everyone starts off at the same level and advancement is based on hard work and merit. Great environment coworkers treat you like family and so do Mike and Vianca. You are just another person to them they take the time to get to know you and care about you accomplishing you goals.

    Cons

    I don't see anything about working here as a con. If you are willing to invest your time hardwork and dedication then you will be successful

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! I have worked for other marketing firms before and this firm is hands down the best of the best. It is evident that you guys actually care about your people and I thank you for that.

    Pros

    This company seems professional when you first interview, but it is really not.

    Cons

    The job description is false. You are not an account manager. You basically sale direct-tv in wal mart. This company needs to stop wasting people's time with false dream. I am so glad that I did not buy into the pyramid. A job that is very is to get is a job that will be very easy to lose.

    Pros

    There are two outstanding factors that make Oryx Nashville, Inc. become one of the top place to work for in Tennessee including amazing culture and fun environment. The management team is very understanding and personable to your concerns.

    Cons

    Get ready to work very hard to earn your opportunity. The system is designed to help those who are willing to work hard, having great student mentality, and maintaining positive attitude!

    Pros

    One of my favorite things about working at Oryx Nashville is that promotions based on merit. I know that the harder I work the faster I can reach my dreams of becoming an entrepreneur. I don’t have to worry about how long someone has been with the company or vice versa in order to get a promotion. Also, one of things I like about Oryx Nashville is the friendships I have made. My coworkers aren’t just someone I work with they are someone I can called my friends too.

    Cons

    A few people may see that we work longer hours but in order to be the very best in a business, you have to grind everyday not just Monday through Friday. If you are looking for a 9 to 5 then this isn’t the job for you. This management training program will only work when you put effort into it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing, no advice here.
