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

    Pros

    Good people who care. Fun work environment. Relaxed and casual. Smart leaders and co-workers. Interesting work and clients.

    Cons

    The structure always seemed a bit disorganized and was constantly changing due to the nature of the work, which made it difficult to plan for a career of any length there.


  2. "Bit of a Cult. Watch your Back Side."

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

    Pros

    Friendly people, enthusiastic about their work, good morale. Good compensation.

    Cons

    Company takes pride in never laying people off: when they get tired of you they deliberately make you unhappy enough to quit, then they deny unemployment benefits. Weird corporate culture. They have their own way of managing time and dates, they have the aBt mottos and slogans and traditions everyone must learn; morale-boosting games and activities you've seen parodies of. Company SONG. The CEO Doug Carey is a dilettante, inserts himself into other folks' workflow at random and micromanages, often exceeds his areas of competency.

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

    Pros

    Small company with a big heart. Opportunity to learn. Open-door policy.

    Cons

    Constantly changing reporting structure. High turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Create a firm reporting structure, with written job guidelines. Give employees written long term objectives, training and goals, and then give them at least six months to perform before changing structure.

    Pros

    Push to limit=learn your boundaries. Expansive responsibilities. Great colleagues. Dog in office.

    Cons

    Work=Life. Constant change. No unifying objective.

    Advice to Management

    Create and stick with a mission. Create growth plans and complete reviews. Find a commission plan and stick with it--4 commissions plans in under a year....
