    Pros

    Great place to advance to a different level of career. Many opportunities to transition to a new career.

    Cons

    "Culture" was sometimes overdone, but they meant well. They were behind the times when it came to telecommuting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to maintain the attitude of taking care of your employees.

    Pros

    only positive - you get treated well if uou make a sale.

    Cons

    Horrible training, horrible managment, horrible product. Was told i could implement cloud solutions to smb market. Only given one zip code and couldnt take any fiber buildings. I could basically only sell to those who carry att uverse and comcast triple play of which our offerings were almost 10x the price. Theyve totally saturated the market with horrible customer experiences. I would get thrown out of buildings regularly by even memtioning their brand name. Sales amongst those in my group were minimal out of about 30 sales reps. They where going through a by out and laid everyone off within the three months that i was there. So i just chalk it up to wrong place wrong time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get another brand name.....oh nice....welcome to Birch....
