    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

    I learned what I didn't want to do with my life

    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.
    Great for learning the art of the cold call

    Consbesides the general lack of care they seem to have for their employees, it was just a depressing place to work

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Have fun while expanding your skill set

    Client Sales Representative (Former Employee) Nashville, TN (US)

    Prosyou are in charge of managing the accounts you close

    great people with laid back yet competitive office enviroment

    transportation not your typical cubical job and gain transferable skill set

    Conscustomers and carriers often get angry and mouth off to you but you just have to grin and bear it

    Advice to Senior Managementcontinue on the path we've seen recently adding more levels of managment and making teams smaller so reps get more one on one attention

    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

    Bad pay and no opportunity

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

    ProsYoung/ fun culture. Relaxed work environment.

    ConsCompensation is terrible compared to other sales jobs. There isn't much internal opportunity here. Good stepping tone to leave and get a better job which most people end up doing. Huge turnover here.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
