    Pros

    Fun environment and really cool coworkers (well some for the most part) that make the job less insufferable.

    Cons

    There is definitely a "bro vibe" which is typical in a sales environment. Basically it's fend for yourself/I make a lot of money now so I'm not even going to bother talking to you. The training program is horrible, they only give you a month to learn the job and then they give you a warning before they officially cut you off the team. It's literally a call center where you're calling people that don't want to talk to you, I mean if I was a doctor of course I would be tending to my patients than to be on the phone with a sales person. They also separate the new hires into a section away from the more senior employees, it's literally the blind leading the blind when you're sitting next to someone who also doesn't know what they are doing. End result: you literally learn on your own and then are still running around with your head cut off.

    Pros

    Coworkers are awesome, just got a new building

    Cons

    Pay is low, mislead new hires about how much they will be making, high pressure, training program is terrible

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to HR issues. Sexism and sexual harassment are a serious problem at this company. Individually everyone who works here is cool, but together they develop a pack-like, and very overly "macho" mentality. Stemming from management.

    Pros

    Great environment. This is a great place to learn the fundamentals of sales and closing. Every morning the team gets together to either educate on the service, share sales tactics or just play games for team bonding! Team leads are good at their job and WANT to help you succeed. You get what you put into it! Your hard work will be appraised and noticed here.

    Cons

    Could have better coffee--maybe they do now?

    Good Experience. Imatrix is looking to train salespersons to deliver successful numbers. Their goal is to make you a profitable employee. The best part about Imatrix is the work/ social work environment, really cool fun people work here.

    Cold Calls. A lot of cold calls. And work starts at 7AM.

    Advice to management would be implement more incentives and opportunities for employees to grow within the company.

    Pros

    Mostly good people with a fun, geeky culture. Decent benefits and infrastructure support.

    Cons

    A while ago I left a 5 star review of this company and meant every word. Now I'm leaving a 2 star. Over the last two years the company has been bent further and further over backwards by corporate influence. There is no internal decision making power or real leadership and damn does it show. They've got a building full of smart people with good ideas and corporate appears to be doing its best to turn all of them into drones so that we can properly fill our allotted space on the corporate spreadsheet rather than actually growing the company and doing what would be best for clients. If you want to punch in, do a job and punch out, this place is a decent destination, if you actually want a company with some life in it, move along.

    Advice to Management

    It's become increasingly obvious that none of the management in the building have the power to actually change anything and just as obvious that no one at corporate cares, so I won't even waste my breath.

    Pros

    Amazing people to work with, management really cares about your progress and success with the company. Great energy and atmosphere along with a really solid training program. Really hard work to get into so if you want to work there just make sure your ready to role up your sleeves. All in all really solid work experience that I will be taking to my next opportunity.

    Cons

    Tons of cold calling and snap conversion rate when you have little inside sales experience

    Advice to Management

    Keep Archie around he was a great leader and cares about his people

    Pros

    Great training and support, from the fellow co-workers all the way up the the executives. Nothing hidden or tricky, the job is hard but rewarding. Fair commission structure where very high revenue streams are possible if you work hard enough for it. Free coffee, they buy lunch for everyone on occasion. Incentives for good work, Amazing team atmosphere. Make everyone feel welcome. Opportunities for growth for those who show initiative. Opportunities for company travel. Brand new building about to be finished. Starter program for new employees to help get them on their feet.

    Cons

    There are a few employees ( mostly new hires) who don't take the job seriously and spend a lot of time just making noise and distracting those who want to work/ be successful

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on the new heirs, don't let the ones who aren't mature enough to handle the responsibility of a real job distract/corrupt/drive away those who want to do their job well. But over all I think management is doing a great job considering the amount of recent growth.

    Pros

    So far my experience with this place is good. I accepted the position with the hopes I would.learn about sales and myself and so far I feel as though I have and have a good grasp of everything I should. The product is great and very sellable if you know it. The staff is awesome. And they are introducing new things to make the work flow better.

    Cons

    Barely any. A job is what you.make of it. Based on earlier reviews, I'm assuming the people who started weren't serious about sales in the first place. Sales is more difficult to get but rewarding once you get there. Only con is I feel bad for management and I think we suffer because of it. There are a few members of management who are great and always busy but they our the best resources for us to learn from. A lot of other people mess around a lot instead of working so they need to find a middle level of how to control the environment and free up some of the better people to learn from.

    Advice to Management

    Its great here. Control the environment and make it more professional.
