    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at iCore Networks full-time

    Pros

    Initially I had reservations about working with this company because I heard of the long hours but this is highly manageable. I am able to add value to the company from the work I do and they are very understanding when personal emergencies arise suddenly.

    Cons

    Employees work long hours but management is understanding and adjusts to help the employee.

    Great company wide events/get togethers
    Weekly company meetings to discuss topics or give recognition
    Ability to make great commission and growth opportunities are available

    Long work hours/days and no work life balance
    Not much training in the beginning for new reps

    Provide more training to new reps
    Learn to trust and believe in the honest/hard working reps, not the slackers
    Focus on development of new reps versus hand holding of "tenured"

    Pros

    You can learn alot and gain knowledge.

    Cons

    No compensation. Overworked. No family time or a life if you work here. Salary looks good on paper, but once you are working 24 hours a day, you are making way less. Not worth it.

    I have been working at iCore Networks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Commission structure is really good - higher than competitors. If you're in sales you can make a lot of money.
    Nice office space.
    Colleagues are mostly pretty cool.
    Benefits package is stellar.

    Cons

    This is the absolute worst work environment I have ever witnessed. First of all, expect to work extremely long hours every single day - if you have a family, RUN! This is only feasible for individuals who are either A.) Single, or B.) Fresh out of college and don't know any better.
    Secondly, management will try and motivate you by telling you how disposable you are and how everyone who has ever left practically begs to come back because it really is "the best job you will ever have" and it takes leaving the company to realize it. The truth is, you are 100% disposable, but no one wants to come back because any company is better than this place. Personally, I've never found this to be motivating - just stressful...more stressful than what it's actually worth.
    This is the epitome of a boys club - sorry ladies, you will have to work a full day while the gentlemen go golfing, or drinking, or whatever else they can find to do. You can also expect to see men get promoted really fast...females, good luck.

    Lastly, those positive reviews you see on here are all fake - marketing requests people to write positive reviews to bring the rating up (notice that the posting dates are all within the same few days? That's not a coincidence.)

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value your employees, you'll make even more money if your team actually wants to work for you.

    I worked at iCore Networks full-time

    Pros

    You can move between departments, sort of. They don't compensate fairly.

    Cons

    Compensation is pathetic. Employees are mistreated regularly. This is a horrible place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more women in positions of management. It's a boys club.

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

    Pros

    They start you out at an ok salary.

    Cons

    Everything, they want you to advance within the company but you have to walk door to door ALL DAY to do it. There is minimal training and honestly it was one of the worst jobs I ever had. Yes some sales position you have to walk door to door, but you lie to people in order to gain their business and feel terrible about yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Invest on you back end in order to support the loyal customers instead of just running through them.
