    I worked at Welcome Wagon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is there for you and will take their shirt off their back to help you close a deal. I loved my area manager, she was always on point. They are so nice and Steve Goodman, the CEO is always involved. I worked in Charlotte, NC and had a great experience.

    Cons

    Straight commission. The commission is extremely generous; however, the commission retracted if client cancels their account, which could be several months later. A lot of straight commission jobs are like this, it is very common and it will happen at any company you work for. I was not aware of this, so I did not plan accordingly and had to resign. This was my fault because I did not read the contract. Just make sure you budget your money with that in mind.
