    I have been working at ProfessionalPlanets.com full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    If you looking to work for a company that you are not micro managed, looking to move up fast and do what you are passionate about this is the place. The company is always evolving its software, design and services to help the clients be successful. The quality of work, support and fees are amazing. The office equipment, environment is very nice and up to date.

    Cons

    The job can be stressful at times due to the high volume calls and work.

    Advice to Management

    The training program needs to be revisited and ongoing with weekly meetings.

    I have been working at ProfessionalPlanets.com

    Pros

    A great team of people who are dedicated to the company and clients. An in-house marketing and website platform that is robust. A chance to work with small businesses to implement and oversee many digital marketing strategies.

    Cons

    I am not sure if it is a con but be prepared to work hard and wear multiple hats. The culture is healthy but everyone is so focused on taking care of clients which at times does not leave enough room for team building exercises and company events.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more about the company's progress to the team . Have more team building exercises and company events.

    I worked at ProfessionalPlanets.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A Decent Scottsdale, AZ Location

    Cons

    The company is run like a call center! You will be hired for a certain position and will never work that position. The company lacks leadership as the owner Neil Mackay does not actively participate in the daily operations. When the owner does participate in the business it is at 4:59pm as your getting ready to walk out the door to go home and get a phone call. Sorry but even salary employees want to get home on time,...

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to be honest when hiring new employees! Explain that the business is a call center and that employees will be required to make phone calls. If your going to hire masters of their fields, you need to treat them as a valuable asset to your business. Internet Marketing specialist or SEO people DO NOT want to spend their day talking to clients. That is like hiring a roofer to lay your new floors!...

    I worked at ProfessionalPlanets.com full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    After working with the owner, I feel I will be able to identify psychopathology more easily in the future, and thus, avoid it.

    Cons

    I pity their clients. Professional Planets is incredibly shady, shoddy and abusive at all levels. This place is a nightmare, run by Canada's ex-patriot version of Kim Jong Un. Don't even think about working here, no matter how broke you are. You'd be better off selling your children into slavery. All of the other reviews of this place are just as positive as mine - take heed.

    Advice to Management

    Counselling. Therapy. Medication. Acts of community service and/or charity. Whatever it takes for you to balance your karmic debt, because... wow.

    Pros

    If you can ever get them to put something in writing they might live up to it.

    Cons

    If you are seeking an environment where it seems your needs are secondary at best and the stories for employees of the past are lined with all varieties of bent and broken promises, Chiroplanet may be a great fit for you. Don't be fooled by the hollow empty promises you receive during your interview process. The thing to remember above all else is. If it is not in writing and signed, it won’t happen. The owner is a...

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company while it is still worth something.

  7. If you get hired, you're probably overqualified and will be unhappy. Management is full of empty promises

    I worked at ProfessionalPlanets.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Small office with good co-workers. The place had potential but the owner will never be successful with his business ethics.

    Cons

    Micro-managing tool of an owner that likes to pretend he's the office NSA - reading employee's emails and personal skype messages instead of growing the business like he should. Extremely OCD about internal processes to the point where it hurts efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional and concentrate on your business. Keep your employees happy because they are assets, not just expenses.

    Great co-workers, and great work life balance for now

    Cons

    you will be stuck in a minimum paying position not the one hired for or promised, they outsource their HR to their payroll processing company which you can never be in contact with they are like ghost. they will like and say you start at 16 dollars an hour when really its 8.00+8.00 bonus if the CEO likes you, their websites are out dated and once they lock clients into contracts they charge them for the smallest things....

    What could be better than feedback from a past employee who was unable to make it through their 60-day training phase and who just days before abandoned their position with no company communication… And an employee who managed to upset essentially all their co-workers with their disruptive ...

    Pros

    Their proprietary website building tool was impressive.

    Cons

    Management and Training. If they don't like you, they will use their right to terminate you as an At Will Employee. In this case, they also sent a nasty note about how disappointing I was to them when I asked to be paid for my time there.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional. Don't have a shower in the employee bathroom. If you must shower at work, have a private bathroom. At the very least, don't leave powder on the floor so employees don't have to think about their boss showering. If you expect a meeting with an employee at the end of shift, schedule one. Don't expect your employees to read you mind. Hire an actual trainer. Your programmer shouldn't be training your new...

    While we appreciate honest feedback from existing and past employees, the feedback above is untruthful and comes from an individual who managed just 2 days with our company prior to their "no call no show" on day 3 of their training. The reason provided for missing their 3rd day was ...
