    Pros

    Pros with this company is how well they work with personal life and scheduling for reps outside of the workplace. Benefits, Pay, Prizes and Contests, Family Environment, Competitive Advancement, Great Sales Bonuses.

    Cons

    Cons I have with the company is the expectation of management to work their life around what the company needs.

    Advice to Management

    Follow procedures more closely if they directly effect your hardest working employees to reinforce positive change within the company. Allow downtime here and there if an employee has put everything they had into the company, this reinforces the value of the employee and makes them feel more successful.

    I worked at Thomas L. Cardella & Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Overtime was always available.
    Good bonuses if you do well at sales.
    Really liked my coworkers and some supervisors.
    Ok Benefits.

    Cons

    Always unstaffed, resulting in back to back calls. I would say, you could handle this job if you are resilient and don’t take rude customers personally. It is quite repetitive and everyday is the same. It seems over half the calls are negative customers. There is no fun, just all about sales and goals everyday. Pay is based on a point system, if you don’t work your full shift on the dot, pay is docked. Which I feel is a good idea for minor excuses. It is although, pushed too far when I watched coworkers go through major problems and still get their pay docked because they already has used their one documented excuse for the quarter.
