    I have been working at Soren Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This has been a once in a lifetime opportunity. Working with Soren Inc., I have learned and have grown tremendously in the past year. When I first started, I was not the sharpest tool in the shed nor was I that confident. I was all of a sudden surrounded by people that believed in me. If it was not for this, I don't think I would have found an opportunity like this ever again. I have acquired so many skills in this learning...

    Cons

    If you are not willing to have a great attitude, work hard, have the student mentality to learn a simple system and be focused on your vision. this is not for you. Its not a 9-5, sit at your desk and collect a check kind of job.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to challenge yourself. Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Learn everything you can learn. You can do anything you put your mind to

    I worked at Soren Inc.

    Pros

    The only good thing is that the people that work there are awesome. That's all, that's it. You want pizza for working hard, then that's the place for you

    Cons

    MULTILEVEL MARKETING! If you know what that means, then stay away. If you do not know what that means, you probably don't want to find out

    Advice to Management

    At least give the people health insurance. They are on the street all day and in every weather condition.

    Pros

    Extremely motivating atmosphere and written environment.

    Cons

    Pay is full commission, it can be a huge leap that people may not be ready for.

    Keep up the great work.

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We do currently offer two pay structures at our firm, either full commission or a base salary with commission, because we do understand that some associates prefer to have options and need stability. We hope that your time with our firm ...

    I worked at Soren Inc.

    Pros

    Honestly there are no pros about this company unless you like door to door sales. Some of the people are cool but that's about it.

    Cons

    Door to door sales with the hope of becoming an "owner" in the company in 6 months if you follow the guidelines that they set. They down play people who work normal jobs but in reality those people make more than any of the broke reps in their office.

    Advice to Management

    Stop selling people a dream and be up front with the job descriptions

    I worked at Soren Inc.

    Pros

    You will learn valuable skills and meet great people. The environment is fun for the most part. If you have a negative attitude and you don't mind living WAY above your means you will have a hard time staying afloat.

    Cons

    100% commission based. Sometimes you barely make enough money to survive the week. But you're told to look at the "opportunity". The opportunity of owning your own company is very misleading. You will have to kill yourself for two maybe even three years before you even get anywhere. They lie and say that once you reach a certain point, you will be able to own and run the company and make SO much money. Please...spare...

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie, be very transparent. The least you could do is tell people that a successful road to management takes YEARS. Lots of trail and error. Prep your people more before you make them managers.

    I worked at Soren Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Kind people willing to assist others grow since it helps them, too *POSSIBILITY* of a significant take-home pay

    Cons

    Unless you select the base pay option (which is frowned upon- and if you do, you better deliver quickly with sales, or you will be cut), your pay is 100% commission based. You can easily work 6 12 hour days and receive no pay whatsoever. They call it "Marketing Consultation" but it is really door-to-door sales, just at businesses instead of homes. However, you are approaching employees at their job trying to sell them...

    Advice to Management

    Be absolutely forthcoming with interviewees regarding the true nature of the job duties. Educate the staff about the various compensation packages without pressuring them. People will be able to tackle the obstacles better when they are confident they will be able to afford groceries.
