    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsThe best reason to work here is you are able to quickly bond with co-workers over how miserable you both are.

    Get what you put in.

    Client Sales Representative (Current Employee) Chicago, IL (US)

    Prosif you work hard and stick with it, good things will come. great people. great atmosphere. days fly by. it will teach you tons of skills. work with people in various industries large and small which will help for future interviews anywhere.

    Constakes a while and hard work to get to commission. holidays and taking days off is kind of hard because everyone has own book.

    Advice to Senior Managementlarger base, or more perks for when you are starting

    Fun and energetic young company.

    Client Sales Representative (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    Prosyoung workforce with similar interests. kickball team on thursdays, softball team on tuesdays, beer fridays and happy hours regularly. management has expectations and stands by them but let's you handle your business how you choose. i have been here 10 months and am going to hit commission this month

    Consit's a sales job where you have to work hard and mostly find your own leads. first six months is heavy cold calling but now i am doing mainly customer management with less calls. putting in more than 40 hours is necessary to getting ahead.

    Advice to Senior Managementsome more advanced training would be helpful but other than that, job has been what i expected and overall good.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Make Your Career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chicago, IL (US)

    ProsYoung, casual work environment and fast paced industry. Company growth does offer opportunities for recent graduates to try explore new career paths. Hard work does not go unnoticed. Summer softball leagues, beer fridays and corporate funded parties don't hurt

    Consif you are starting in a sales role be prepared for challenges, it's a competitive industry that takes some time to get adjusted to.

    Advice to Senior Managementfurther encouragement of employees to bubble up ideas. the ears are open but i'm not sure the right avenues for communicating messages from the floor have been established

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
