    Pros

    Awesome group of people. Great amenities in the campus. Managers slowly introduce you into the business and they don't set you up to fail. Work life balance is great

    Cons

    I cant think of any.

    Pros

    The job is demanding, as is the sales industry, coaches and higher levels of management are also looking at self-care

    Cons

    high turnover- sales always has a high turnover rate

    Pros

    The training is fantastic. Very long, but you will learn so much about the job, the companies you will be working for, and many sales tactics.

    Cons

    They don't tell you much about what the job entails until training actually begins. This position is certainly not for everyone. But if you're interested in sales, than I can't think of a better company to work for.

    Pros

    Great food options
    Nice campus
    Some good people
    Work/life balance
    Benefits (health, vacation, etc.) were pretty amazing
    No over-your-shoulder micromanagement
    Vacation/sick-time was very flexible. Just don't take advantage of their generosity in that regard and everyone will continue to benefit.
    Most everyone was very nice

    Cons

    WAY too many meetings
    Lack of communication between upper and lower level
    Standards changed too often
    A little too cult-like for me
    Recruiters will say whatever they need to in order to get you in and meet their numbers. Get EVERYTHING they promise you in writing BEFORE you sign the acceptance letter.
    No real room to grow unless you can schmooze the right people. There were a few individuals with just enough power and influence to keep others where they wanted them so they didn't have to give up their power. That has made some really good quality people quit and look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so giddy about the "open environment". Close to 100% of your developers HATE the open environment. It's nice to look out a window all day, but research has proven that it can take more than 25 minutes to ramp back up into work mode after even a simple 2 second distraction. That's hardly efficient. Reward people for working their butts off all year instead of telling them, "Sorry you worked night and day and gave everything you had to get better. But you weren't promoted, so you get no raise this year." And, no, the campus and amenities are not enough of a "bonus" to make up for that. Solidify the review process and make managers more aware of what's coming before they have to give reviews.

    I worked at Red Ventures full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great cafeteria, team leaders that care about you

    Cons

    Not enough paid time off, difficult scheduling, weird customers and not enough senior assistance

    Advice to Management

    Team leaders are great, it was the VPs and Senior Pos that needed some grounding. Too lofty of goals to implement and sometimes it felt like you had to lie to customers to make it work.

    Pros

    Money is good, benefits are alright. Hours get better as time goes on. Only 3 stars based on money for those who do their job well. Many of whom aren't recognized anyway, because they're doing their job the right way. Plenty of overtime, mostly based on a very high attrition percentage in comparison to industry average.

    Cons

    Employees coming in, be sure to understand that you're moving into a company that is a 'great place to work', but only for a few. Money is inconsistant for MOST. Make sure you know who you're talking to about your time off, needs for schedule flexibility, etc. Especially if you have a family or any personal issue at all! Everything is based on numbers. Your money fluctuates all the time, and many great employees don't stay due to uncertainty, loss of good management, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Advise the incoming employees the right way from day one. Everything should be disclosed IN FULL. Pay rate, attendance policies, etc. are not things that should fluctuate. That's business, for sure. But from an employee standpoint, it's referred to as changing the rules as the game goes on for your benefit, never that of the employee, business partner, or customer.

    Pros

    Great sales experience right out of college. The money was awesome if you were good at sales and followed the process. They also paid for me to get licensed in P&C insurance, and later life insurance. Stipend lunches also didn't hurt. Lots of potential upward mobility in you're willing to put in the work.

    Cons

    Constantly changing commission structures were necessary for business teams, but communication from ops was poor and resulted in a lot of upset people.
