      Pros

      Amazing work environment, hands on CEO, great coworkers, SNACKS!!!!! and an amazing atmosphere

      Cons

      It's very clear that Acquirent has an idea of what their model employee should be and it sure doesn't include being good at your job. ACQ has this fascination with keeping good people around and helping them grow, often to the company's own detriment.

      Pros

      The work environment at Acquirent is amazing. The people are great and the atmosphere is a lot of fun. Sales meetings every morning at 8 A.M. gets everyone ready to have a big day.

      Cons

      I honestly haven't come across any yet. For some people the commute to Evanston can be long.

      Pros

      Pretty much anything you could want from a company. Great work environment, culture is point on. The upper management will always treat you like a human being as opposed to a commodity. The culture overall is excellent, as can be seen by their hiring process. People do not get hired by ACQ on accident; they vet their employees on many levels before bringing them in. Office is beautiful and in a great location. Fridge always stocked with soda, cabinets with snacks, and freshly ground coffee. Sales training is one of the best in the industry, for both entry level and experienced salespeople. Mostly good accounts with a strong diversity, making for good opportunities to find something that is right for you.

      Cons

      Pay for some accounts can be low for experienced salespeople, but this is not guaranteed for all. Not much room for growth. Good for entry-level salespeople, not for veterans.

      Pros

      Great work environment, relaxed but goal driven atmosphere. You will never find a more easy going and down to earth sales company to work for.

      Cons

      They tend to sell "high" on the earning potential on the commission side. Expect less annually than what you are told.

      Pros

      The managers are always extremely friendly, supportive, and willing to help in any way - and this includes the CEO, COO, and Executive VP. Great training, that is on going throughout the entirety of your employment. Very relaxed, yet professional work environment. Fun place to work, and I would HIGHLY recommend Acquirent to anyone looking to get into sales.

      Cons

      Certain people can have different experiences based on the account they are placed on. No matter what though, Acquirent will do everything they can within their power to make sure you have an amazing experience. Not a lot of opportunity to work here outside of a sales role.

      Pros

      Work environment was amazing. Jeff Geoff and Joe are great and I have learned a lot from them to take my skills to the next level.

      Cons

      No room for upward growth. There are a few management roles that are open but nothing that will keep many people there for long.
