    I worked at Best Version Media full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -There is potentially the ability to make good money -You have the ability to control your own hours and schedule

    Cons

    -The training was truly terrible, it comes off more like a children’s summer camp that is trying to get you to blindly buy into whatever they tell you, rather than business training -You are told to follow a script and never stray from it, creativity and free thinking are discouraged. When approaching managers with ideas I had for my publication/selling I was told, “there is no reason to think outside the box.” -Management is incredibly hands on (too much so), but not helpful. You are bombarded with text, emails, calls, and motivation; but it always seemed to be pushing either a personal or company agenda. -During a presentation I was asked multiple follow up questions to the script and statistics that I was given and did not know the answer to. When I expressed to management that the person asked very good and interesting questions (many of which poked holes in the sales pitch), I was not provided answers, but instead told, “don’t worry about that one, just move on.” -They would do competitions/bonuses, and I have still not been paid the bonus that I earned/was promised In the end, I did not enjoy the work, company, culture, or product.

    Pros

    High commission, great ongoing training and support, no "boss vs. employee" atmosphere

    Cons

    no pay until your baseline is met (though that is an understandable trade off seeing as how our sponsors aren't charged until we reach our print baseline)
