    Pros

    You get to meet a lot of people through this job, some bad, some good. You'll learn a lot about yourself and the world by working here.

    Cons

    - It's a scam, the interview process is literally someone telling you how much money you're going to make.
    - They want you to work 8am-9pm, they require you to travel to each location and don't pay for transportation - you're required to send large attachment emails and they don't even pay for it
    - You won't make the money they say you'll make, I was losing more money than gaining
    - Management is ridiculous, they don't care about you
    - Bad work culture, everyone is competitive. Don't trust anyone, they are all hungry for money and are willing to throw you under the bus

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying about the position, it's literally a sales job in Costco.

    Pros

    The personal development you will receive with this company, not only just in the business world, even your personal life has changed me to be a more confident and better leader.

    Cons

    Starting out, there is a lot of time commited to get to a management position and build a career. After the hard work and reward of getting the position, the time you are able to spend with family or travel is endless.

    Advice to Management

    Having the whole team work together more will contribute to hit the expansion goals we are looking for in 2018

    Pros

    Very unique business where becoming a full Manager is the goal. I personally witnessed 5 individuals getting to the Managerial level. It was actually very excited to see. Family environment

    Cons

    If you want to work as little as possible and get paid as much money as possible, I would not recommend this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. I miss you guys.

    Pros

    Some of the best leadership and management training that is out there. Nothing like this exists for those with the entrepreneurial drive. Learn how coach, train and manage people while running your business and be paid for it.

    Cons

    If it was easy, everyone would do it

    Advice to Management

    Keep it juicy!

    Pros

    The atmosphere of the office is positive and really energetic. If you looking for building a career and not just a job, this is the place for you. Officemates are great people and organisation gives you great opportunity to grow and learn. Andre, the chief executively manager of the office is a true role model you want to follow.

    Working hours are more, though it helps you to grow and learn more faster and gets you to reach the management level more faster.

    Advice to Management

    Communication and Transparency is a key work on that and you have a Great buisness !!!
