    I have been working at Local Lighthouse full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You can make $100K if you can handle the stress of 100% commission. We sell a solution that is inexpensive and works. Unfortunately many previous and current employees believe the opposite leading to unnecessisarily sleazy sales practices.

    Cons

    Baby management team has multiple meeting per day that discuss failures vs. accomplishments resulting in a depressed sales team, and lower sales. Individual reviews discuss failures further depressing the team leading to additional decreased sales. If you can ignore the motivational management style you will make tons of money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take classes on how to inspire and lead a team. Pay for outside sales training and build a team of top sales performers. Stop concerning yourselves with the failures of underperforming team members. You will get a greater increase in sales by rewarding the top and creating a supportive environment other top sales performers want to join. You could have a team of professional $100K earners with a few minor adjustments

    Pros

    Great coffee maker and smiles.. ugly ones , but smiles, nice locations and decent equipment , pay is set but real closers would prefer better options

    Cons

    They never pay base pay and don't discuss comfort at work . Argumentative from senior staff about owed pay. Dress code a little high for a casual call center and cut your tie... what for?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get time sheets right, and don't cut ties.

    We do not pay base pay, it is commission only with most sales reps making 5k-10k a month.

    Pros

    Wonderful place to work with the greatest co-workers and face to face interaction with all levels of management who encourage new ideas daily. They are always looking for ways to improve and growing rather rapidly as a whole. Nothing but great things in their future.

    Cons

    Needs to offer employees more training and workshops and also more opportunities for growth in the company, which will more than likely be coming in the near future, as this company expands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company.
