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

    Pros

    It's nice to work from home and have the possibility of flexible hours.

    Cons

    You're an independent contractor. Meaning you'll be paying for insurance and taxes out of pocket making this job about$ 10-$12/hr. Not livable for me but maybe for you.

    I worked at Zirtual full-time

    Pros

    Great team, smart people, moved fast.

    Cons

    I was laid off from Zirtual like everyone else on a Monday morning at 4:00am with an email by the former CEO. Zirtual is now owned by a different organization so I cannot say what they are like now. The team I worked with was amazing, but being laid off like that wasn't so great.

    I worked at Zirtual full-time

    Pros

    Was great working with my team of VA's!

    Cons

    The company leadership had a lit of work to do, they were kind of a disaster at the time.

    Pros

    Interesting work with a flexiable schedule. Lots of support available if you know where to look.

    Cons

    Terrible pay. I was promised I could reach my full client load in a few weeks, but after 2 months I was still making very little money.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with more support and respect. That includes paying a decent wage.

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

    Pros

    This truly is an amazing company with great core values and dreams. They have a strong training program that truly prepares you for the job and a wonderful support system.

    Cons

    Lower pay and demanding timelines make the work difficult at times. I was trying to balance this with being a mom and it was too much. I had to account for every minute of the day, so not very flexible.

    I worked at Zirtual full-time

    Pros

    Company has the worst management ever. They consider their assistants just inventory that can be easily replaced. They cut off clients without warning and don't pay like they advertise

    Cons

    Everything about them. Their new CEO is a disrespectful dishonest human being. He talks down to others and makes you feel bad for asking questions

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect rather than something disposable also treat clients with more tact instead of just cutting them off without warning
