    Thanks for the review. We try to cater once a month, but understand that is less than a lot of companies! Additionally, we look forward to updating our office space in the upcoming year.

    I have been working at The BusBank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible, decent pay, great benefits, 401K, great team players, fun office atmosphere, easy location to commute to, pre-tax travel benefits.

    Cons

    I don't feel there are many cons, if any, working with The BusBank. Pay starts out a little tough for new sales people until they are able to build a customer base, but the majority of opportunities are inbound so you don't have to go find your own clients.,However, like any sales position being proactive will set you apart from the rest and speed up your ability to make great money.

    Advice to Management

    When company goals increase, the sales team is basically getting a raise, but the support team is required to do more work for the same money, would be nice to if everyone reaped the benefits of increased goals/numbers/growth.

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

    Pros

    Entrepeneurial spirit when I was there, a great location

    Cons

    very low pay for support roles, disorganized, frustrating communication between sales and support staff

    Advice to Management

    I'm sure things have changed since I have been there, but if I had to say one thing, make certain that the sales team is picking up both good leads and maintaining strong relationships with vendors. Also, if as a smaller company, make sure you reviewing your compensation plans to ensure you have a competitive advantage.

    Pros

    When I first started the best part was the people who worked there. Some are still there but most have moved onto other opportunities.

    Cons

    The BusBank had very shaky management. The company went through bankruptcy so it always felt a bit unstable. Not a very positive work environment

    Pros

    Health benefits, relaxed work atmosphere, smaller sized company that allows for younger staff to take on leadership roles if they are successful

    Cons

    No IRA or 401K offered, transporting groups in buses is not very exciting to sell, did not take the down economy well
