    I worked at SELLBYTEL Group full-time

    Pros

    -They do not micro-manage
    -Flexible work fromg home

    Cons

    -No incentives/ bonuses (low pay too)
    -Unprofessional management
    -No HR who understands the legal necessities a company needs to uphold
    -No Profesional training offered (Was told to do training "out of pocket" for an inexpensive program for my team.) They now do "trainings" on things like writing emails but nothing my team could utilize to better our actual jobs.

    Advice to Management

    -Get a solid HR team who understands American Labor Laws if you're going to continue business in the USA.
    -Management is good at shaking hands and smiling, but doesn't have actual management experience.
    -Offer real performance incentive. Don't give out money or gift cards for guessing baby pictures in a news letter or winning a cook off before performance is incentivised.
    - Stop hiring and promoting family and friends. Let talented outsiders have a real chance.

    Pros

    Seemed nice on paper and speaking to in person. Showed understanding and compassion.

    Cons

    Everything I mentioned in Pros was non-existent came down to business. VP Level was just brutal in the way he communicates 1:1. Just another money-hungry manpower vendor. Poor communication throughout.

    Advice to Management

    Your account managers should not have to hide behind your VP during tough negotiations.

    I have been working at SELLBYTEL Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good medical insurance, PTOs, sick days and personal days compared to many other agencies. Understanding manager who does his best to make his employees and clients happy. Regular team lunches to build team spirit and morale

    Cons

    Career growth may be limited depending on which team you join. Training is offered onsite by SellByTel's clients. Wish they have an internal sales program to nurture superstars.

    Advice to Management

    Have more admin support. Provide better orientation to new hires. Provide opportunities at other clients' sites to employees.
