    I worked at Addella full-time

    Pros

    Super positive work environment, with tons of energetic and ambitious people who really do want to see you succeed. Lots of room for advancement as well if running a D2C/B2B firm is what you desire in the medium-long term.

    Cons

    Hours are not for everyone.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, lots of motivation.

    Cons

    Work/life balance, management, company lies, small pay. Some of the employees are really rude.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your employees about money they will make. They made it sound like we would be making loads of cash, advancements and bonuses, yet when it comes down to it, it’s all lies. I still have not received some of my payments and it’s been a few months since I quit. You told me I would be making $4000 a month, I was working my butt off and it wasn’t even half of that. The only reason addella has good reviews on the internet is because they made all their employees write 5 star reviews (skews the results). they brainwash you into believing you’re doing a great thing for yourself when it’s really more detrimental in the long run and they also treat you like trash once you leave. I’ve been asking for my last check for a while now and they aren’t even replying to me. Oh & They say you’ll be compensated for a lot of the money you spend (gas, food, clothing.. etc) yet it’s not the truth. Do yourself a favour, if they recruit you ( which they recruit ANYONE) do not waste your time, money or sanity on this job.

    I have been working at Addella full-time

    Pros

    So many pros, I started in 2015 with only 2 years of University under my belt and management decided to give me a shot. That's where my life changed forever, through the skills I have learned here I have been able to succeed not only professionally but personally as well. The level to which people care about each other here is absolutely amazing and something I don't know exists anywhere else. Coming from a sports background I loved that the entry was entirely commission based and my performance could help me move up faster. I make more money than my job experience would normally allow for and I am constantly facing new challenges.

    Cons

    The biggest con that can come from this environment is if you come in thinking this will be easy. You trade your efforts for results here, not just your time. If you do not like being held accountable and like to blame outside circumstances for low performance this is not a good fit for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, let's take this thing to the next level.

    I worked at Addella full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - what the title says
    - if you are a shy and introvert person looking to develop your self this is the place.
    - 6 months working here was a great foundation for a sales career that helps me to this day.

    - really builds character, resilience and patience

    Cons

    - if you are not willing to learn and go out of your comfort zone this is not for you.
    - its a tough job that shows what you are made of

    Advice to Management

    Diversify portfolio of products so that sales people have options if they get tiered of selling the same product

    Pros

    First day in I was surrounded by positive people with good intentions. They helped me in any aspect within the job or outside the job. As time progressed I look a few months back and already see drastic changes, in my own self and in terms of my goal. The team will help you realize your goals and go after them. Good money to be made just have a learning mentality, good work ethic and a great attitude.

    Cons

    More office space would be nice. More candy and having ocarina of time to play on the Nintendo 64 would be nice

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing

    I can't think of anything positive. The try to place a positive energy but it's fake.
