    I worked at SinglePlatform full-time

    Pros

    Great company environment. I loved coming to work every day it was fun. Potential to earn a lot of money. Great management that are hands on and want to see you succeed.

    Cons

    For someone that isn’t aware of how sales jobs work, you have to work hard to earn your position and extra money here. For all these negative reviews on here I can tell you they’ve never done sales or don’t like it after this job. That’s fine it’s not for everyone but you get what you applied for when working here. So if you can’t handle a fast pace sales performance environment then of course this isn’t the job for you. Other wise it’s amazing initial inside sales experience.

    Advice to Management

    Only thing is tone back on the talk time and dials, giving reps a chance to do a small amount of research. But that’s just my opinion.

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

    Pros

    I spent 3 years here...

    SP is THE BEST place to kickstart a sales career! I am so incredibly grateful for everything I learned and the opportunities this company opened for my future. I grew so much personally and professionally in the 3 years I was there.

    I always say "If you had told my pre-SinglePlatform self about the financial independence and amount success that I have today...I NEVER WOULD HAVE BELIEVED YOU!"

    Why I love SP....
    *Sales Training: it is top-notch
    *Uncapped Commission: if you work hard and put your mind to it...YOU WILL MAKE SIX FIGURES!
    *People: some of my BEST friends come from this company...we are a family; going to work with your best friends makes work so much more fun
    *Culture: work hard / play hard environment
    *Perks: friendly competition with amazing prizes (like going to the Bahamas or March Madness Final Four tournament), beer cart Fridays, boat cruises in the summer
    *Mindset: this company really taught me how important mindset is and the fact that I control my own success. That is INVALUABLE to me!!! "Those who say they can and those who say they can't are often both right."

    Cons

    It's tough to come up with a list of cons. Looking at other reviews that seem negative...most people just complain about the level of effort SinglePlatform expects. Yes, it's a grind. They expect you to work REALLY hard. But I think that's a positive. I have such a strong work ethic because I came from this company. If you have a problem with hard work, you're going to struggle to find success anywhere.....and NYC definitely isn't the city for you :)

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

    Pros

    Cheap food, free drinks, beer cart, "fun" culture, and training

    Cons

    The culture is great until the senior reps try and hook up with every girl that walks into the front door, and then management says that they are worried about your reputation... The only thing that made this job BEARABLE was the friends you made and stuck it out with you during training, but those friends quickly get fired and let go because of the unrealistic quotas, nepotism, and mental abuse games management plays on the sales reps. They are very transparent with the daily quotas of 220+ Talk Time and 180 dials made, as well as other metrics, but you have to hit all of them, regardless of whether or not you have hit the important quotas (meetings/sales.) The blatant nepotism displayed by management as well as the micromanagement is so disgusting and off putting. They claim to be laissez faire in the culture and then become hypocritical if you do not drink their kool aid, hence why they hire 21 yr olds fresh off of graduation, who have never had a job before instead of experienced and skilled employees. Management nit picks everything you do wrong and done something right or a personal win goes unnoticed. The pools are shallow for the potential sales and prospects. Good luck to whoever gets hired.

    Pros

    You have a lot of perks they give to help you be excited about working there like
    •soda Machine
    •free food on random days
    •cheap Snacks in the vending machine
    •free coffee and warm drinks
    •beer on Fridays
    •pay for overtime

    Cons

    Where do I even Start, you will lying on the phone for over 220Min a day, you are EXPECTED to work past 6pm everyday especially if you are not at your goals for the day even tho you’ll only be trained for a week. Micro Manage Hell is what this place is. You will be watched all day on the phone by your managers and they will secretly listen to your conversations to judge you every week on what you are doing “right” and “wrong”. Most of the people who are your “managers” are not even trained. They are all young adults who just were given the job of managers because they fire people on a monthly basis at Single Platform. You will be so stressed everyday because they have screens that show your numbers to you and everyone else and also send you email updates about where you are at on the day and also have a tab on your computer to the dashboard where your numbers are. But guess what they will tell you not to worry about it but they subconsciously have it everywhere to the point that you will literally be scared to get off your seat because you are behind a few minutes on the day. Most of the leads they give you to call are either out of business locations or actual franchises that have no reason to sign up for the scam they are running. I could go on but I don’t think I have enough time and space.

    Advice to Management

    stop stressing your employees with those ridiculous goals and metrics. stop allowing for favoritism to rule over that office. It’s sad that a lot of good people in there and they come out different people just because of the Mental Slavery you guys have set up in that office
