    I worked at Prosper Inc. part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    While Prosper offers its coaches flexible schedules and pretty easy work dispensing knowledge, the reality is they are pitching the dream to unqualified people. It began to feel like I was perpetuating a fraud after a while. The other coaches were pretty cool.

    Cons

    Some of the people I was asked to coach and help kick-start their own online business (for $6000-15000, not including any marketing or other startup services) were so clueless they could not even figure out how to open their browser and do a Google search. Why people so unsophisticated are being promised success is beyond me.

    We were encouraged to get a success story from 1 in 10 students. A "success story" was no more than them having made any amount of money online...which we usually achieved by getting them to sell some of their old junk on Ebay. The rationale was that if they made 10 dollars they could make 100 and then 1000 and so on over time and that it was a start.

    While the company's legal team probably ensures everything they do is within the limits of the law, I felt that the business of fulfilling the dream was unethical. Plus many members of management were friends with the owners and were not very competent in their positions. My manager's manager, for example, had a few years experience managing a cell phone store.

    So while they pay well this is basically a hypey, scammy company and I would stay away or you will feel your soul corrupted day in and day out.

    Advice to Management

    Do not just allow anyone with money and a pulse into your coaching programs. Lose the nepotism.

    Pros

    Great energy there. Enjoyed working with highly motivated individuals. They often offer free breakfast or lunch and there are incentives/bonuses for performing well which motivates you to do a better job.

    Cons

    Mid level management at that time was unhelpful and would actual be a detriment at times to meeting your goals. However, team leaders and the founders are awesome. They help you set goals and actually achieve them.

    Advice to Management

    Hire mid level management who inspire through actions and example.

    You feel like what you do really makes a difference because you are focusing 100% on the people you talk to on the phone about helping them transform their lives by working with a coach

    I worked at Prosper Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Overall, the people are friendly and try to do what is right. There was a lot of flexibility.

    Cons

    Even though they try to do right, it seems the management is inconsistent and lacks business sense. Most management is hired from within.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone has been with the company for a while, doesn't make them managerial material.

    I worked at Prosper Inc. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I believe they ARE TRYING to keep out of bankruptcy. They have hired a much better President.

    Cons

    They are not doing nearly enough to get things turned around. Everyone is suffering. Pay has dropped by 30-40% in some instances. Moral is low. Pay is terrible. No base pay (Unless you consider minimum wage to be a base pay. Benefits are lousy. Leads are terrible (Only slightly better then calling from the phone book.) But, to be fair, we did get free fountain drinks. Wahoo! There's not enough room here to tell you just how bad it has become. Forget any positive comments here I've worked here 9 years and I'm glad I'm out. I stayed because I thought they would rescue the downfall. But we've gone from 150 sales people to 50. From 50 mill per year gross to 15 mill. No, they have to cut even more and that money comes from marketing and employee pay. Sorry. Anyone who goes to work here will suffer. Wait till they get back to 30 or 40 mill. Then maybe they will address the pay, bad benefits, low moral, etc.

    Advice to Management

    FIRE THE MARKETING DEPT. do a search for EXCEPTIONAL marketers to bring up the quality of the leads. Make 1/2 of their income dependent on sales increases. Then make a deal with sales to hit "X" amount in 4 months and you will add 2 days vacation pay to all in sales, then another 2 days for hitting a higher benchmark, etc.
