    I worked at Addella for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Some pros of working for Addella are working with awesome and enthusiastic individuals that relish in the success of others more than themselves. I have always felt that the best way to learn is through hands on coaching and boy is this the environment for it. The hands on coaching in developing communication skills, presentation skills, & overall professionalism is exemplary. A management team that genuinely...

    Cons

    There's hard work involved if you want to add more tools into the toolbox. Working at Addella like anywhere else has it's challenged but the difference in working for Addella is that the hard work is worth it in the end with the skills and experience you obtain.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! More team events!

    I worked at Addella full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Their hands-on teaching approach blew me away. I learnt so much in my short time there, skills I could use in the work force as well as outside of it. They are very informative and teach your how to overcome so many obstacles. 2. The people (not all, but a very high percentage) were very welcoming and kind. They built with you, grew with you, wanted you to genuinely succeed and worked so hard to make sure you did....

    Cons

    1. Compensation was a big one. If you are living on your own, paying bills/rent/etc., it's really important to have a background in sales at the very least. I came without any experience and really suffered financially as a result. Many reviews on here post that it's a scam designed to rip you off. If you are genuinely good at what you do, the payout is well worth the work! This isn't a job, it's a career. If you invest...

    Advice to Management

    I wasn't a good fit myself though felt very welcome nonetheless and really enjoyed the time I was there. My advice would be simply to have a part-time option if you wanted to expand so the younger folks could get a foot in the door while also going to school/working someplace else to pay bills.

    Pros

    None. Can't even think of even one.

    Cons

    I will start by saying that they make all employees write positive reviews of the company on the internet and I can tell you that all the positive reviews about addella on this message board is because of that reason. I was told I had to do the exact same thing. Just look at the reviews on here that are positive they're all the same, who would actually say that kinda stuff about their job/workplace on their own. ...

    I have been working at Addella full-time

    Pros

    I’ve worked at Addella for a couple months now. During my time here I have made some of the best friendships you can ever imagine. I view the company as a second family and I appreciate the investment that my mentors, and management have put into my development. The team receives nothing from helping, but does it out of their want to help you improve in your professional goals. For those who have spoken negatively about...

    Cons

    It is hard work, there is no lie to it. I had a hard time checking my ego when it came to sales and getting rejected. It is not a good fit for everyone thats for sure, but neither is IT or adminstration for another person.

    Advice to Management

    You do a great job of providing direction and coaching. Keep being funny and making the office a great place to work.

    Cons

    It all starts with a phone call about an 'interview'. You may not even remember applying to the place. They cull phone numbers from job boards like monster, indeed etc. Take your number off these places. The girl offering the interview may butter you up. Questions about what they do, sell, the salary, who their clients are, get vague answers or you are directed that all will be revealed at the interview. Where do I...

    Advice to Management

    Managers, you know what you are doing is evil. Quit, show some honour and work for a real company, being a Manager at McDonalds has 100% more honour than this. As for the National Consultants and Executives? I don't know how you can sleep at night. You have no honour or integrity.

    First off, it is extremely clear that you have not worked with us, let alone go through a full interview process. During the very first interview compensation is discussed in a very detailed manor, we go through client information, and if there was a disconnect in the first round ...

      Working with so many different personalities can be overwhelming at times, however, it is something you'll have to learn if you ever intend on working in an industry where helping people is the foundation.
