Pros

Great entry level opportunity. Really get to learn the complete sales cycle. Excellent stepping stone toward ultimate career and professional goals.

Cons

Very difficult to sell such an antiquated product. Hiring process is not rigid enough, if someone has a pulse they'll most likely get hired.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do something about all of the negative press surrounding company. Marketing, marketing, marketing. It is very difficult for sales reps to stand up for company against the awful reviews.

    Pros

    Teach you basics of sales and makes you work hard.
    Good company vibe and sales team.
    Good supporting managers if you're lucky to have one.
    Has potential to be an amazing company

    Cons

    Bad hours.
    Terrible commission structure although it was changing when I left.
    Bad upper management due to pure sales and not having the proper background to run a branch. It's good that they know what the company is about but having an all "sales" mentally is terrible for customer support.
    Some of your clients will hate you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pushing so much in sales. I know you guys have the, throw new sales reps against a wall and see if you stick mentality but there are some talented reps that needs more time to develop themselves. Also take care of your clients more. Many dissatisfied clients are stuck with your 3 year contract. Take that away and the company will be down a lot of "happy" clients. You guys have a great product and great idea. Just take care of your customers.

    Long hours to start, until you build a funnel of prospects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay abreast of changes in telecom market to keep us competitive. We've already created a lot of headway with offering cloud computing and new smartphones/tablets...keep it up!
