    I worked at Sweetjack full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company culture
    Good place to learn
    Potential Opportunity to move to other Cumulus properties

    Cons

    Grew too fast too quick. It wasn't for me very young staff that were learning how to run an office.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure because the people I worked with have since moved on.

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

    Pros

    Decent hours with not a lot of work to over power you within the day. Very nice coworkers. Happy working environment starting out.

    Cons

    Terrible customer service. Sold fake knock off products. Awful treatment of their vendors.

    *** As of July 2013, Cumulus let everyone go*** - They only hired people to grow their markets and portfolio.

    Advice to Management

    Management had no clue what they really wanted. They just wanted workers to grow markets across the United States, then fire the workers and set it to cruise control. Awful business practices.

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

    Pros

    Free to surf the net all day. Could get work done for the day by lunch time.

    Cons

    Shoddy run business. No wonder it failed.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue! No wonder the business failed....zero marketing outside of crappy radio plugs that no one listened to anyway.

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

    Pros

    -The people made this place fun.
    -Life-long friendships were made.
    -Management was supportive for the most part.
    -Advancement could happen, especially on the sales side. I watched a few peers rise through the ranks quickly (sales/acct managers and sales director) and did the best they could with what was given to them.

    Cons

    -No support from corporate.
    -Lines of communication were always muddy (lack of team cohesion)
    -Minimal ongoing training (esp. sales training)
    -Lack of marketing materials to support sales

    Advice to Management

    Too late for this now. SJ is just a shell of what it could have been - layoffs throughout 2013 left the company with about 3 employees at this point.

    I have been working at Sweetjack full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun while it lasted which wasn't long.

    Cons

    Grew to have over 100 employees but then Cumulus came in and laid everyone off un announced. They kept maybe 6 employees to close out business.

    Advice to Management

    Some sort of warning would have been nice so the dozens of employees that were laid off could have been looking for a new job.

    Pros

    Good group of people. Was surrounded by dozens of other young professionals. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    A lot of underqualified individuals had managerial roles. Not a lot of room for growth.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Not a lot of stress and you are not micro managed.

    Cons

    Seems like they have given up on making it work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give up. Have a great product. Just need to market a little and things will be fine.

    Pros

    The people make the company, and at SweetJack the people are fun, outgoing, down to earth, and welcome you with open arms. They offer a fun work environment with competitive salary and commissions. Big enough to offer a competitive advantage over the competition, but small enough to make everyone feel at home.

    Cons

    As a new company they are still trying to figure some things out. Some of these lessons learned along the way cause them to be distracted to what is right under their noses. Promises of advancement can be overshadowed by shuffling employees horizontally instead of vertically. As with most new, and small companies, they have to learn to cut the excess fat and prove the worth of those employees who can help take the company where it wants to be.
