    I worked at South full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company has amazing values that get instilled in each employee from day 1. The integrity and honesty from the executive team is truly admirable. She takes the time to have in depth conversations with every employee from sales to admins to find ways to make the company better each day. She even takes time during what most likely are her family hours to devote to staff that may be struggling personally and coach them...

    Cons

    I regret taking the opportunity for granted but what I learned at South Inc. has brought me numerous promotions and recognition at my current company and for that I am grateful.

    I worked at South full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Gained a ton of knowledge over sales that I was able to carry with me to my new career.

    Cons

    The reality of their advancement opportunities is not accurate to how the organization describes. More fit for interns looking for sales knowledge not a career. Also expected to work way more hours than the lead on in the beginning with no pay. It’s 100% commission

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent

    I worked at South full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None. None. None. None. None. (the post requires 5 words).

    Cons

    Door to door sales. Target desperate young professionals straight out of college. Lie, and manipulate its employees into believing if they stay, they can become rich/successful. All of these "Marketing" companies are under the same 'Pyramid' and profit off each-other. Management comments on every review to trick viewers that they are legit.

    Advice to Management

    Why keep lying? Money.

    I have been working at South full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have a good system.

    Cons

    This place is a scam. They claim if you put in a year they will benefit your resume. I am judged in my profession for being trash enough to do door to door. This place only hurts your next career choice. It will never look good on your resume. The CEO and President makes tons of money while her workers struggle to pay bills everyday.

      Work experience and the people their are nice

      Cons

      Its almost impossible to live off this job for two weeks of work I got less than $160 TWO WEEKS. The final straw was when I was speaking to one of the people who had been working their for months and they said they had to ask their family for money just to get home after work. NOT A STEADY JOB.
