Pros

Work from home
Made connections with female sales pro's in other parts if the country

Cons

CEO, Megan is mean and belittles sales people and managers in front of others, used to get the entire team on a call and give sales reviews to individual managers.
Expect you to work 24-7 for very little pay
E-mails were sent to Managers at all hours of the night, would wake up with a full in-box of e-mails received from 1AM - 4AM
Have to use your own lap-top and office equipment
If you are not located in San Fran don't expect to get promoted or taken seriously
Fired all management expect a few chosen ones only to rehire a few months later
Poor business plan
Sales goals are not clear and defined
Often ask Managers to step down into unpaid part-time sales people
Unrealistic Expectations in an uncertain industry

Advice to Management

Deal with Megan
Set clear goals for employees
Stop Firing at will

  1. I feel like I work for free, that my talents are being used and abused. Husband says this isn't a job, it's a hobby. Ha

    Pros

    Flexibility, No sales quotas or pressure to produce

    Cons

    You don't get paid for your hard work leading up to the sale. Then, your deal you sold runs and not too many people buy, you are left with not much of a reward for your hard work

    Advice to Management

    Offer DCs full time positions, pay them what they are worth

  2. Learned a ton. Left disappointed.

    Pros

    At Plum District you were never bored. There was always more to do than you had time to do it in. Regardless of how long you'd been there you had a chance to contribute.

    Cons

    Ridiculously long hours - seeing colleagues online working at midnight was routine, as was getting work texts at 11:30pm. Mid-to-low pay, especially for the hours. Management was terrible at motivation and worse at transparency. Employee burnout was a constant.
