"What I like about being a media consultant are two things: 1 - The ability to work from home. 2 - The ability to meet many different kinds of business. What I dislike is: 1 - The micromanagement that was starting to be introduced."

"I loved the independence and the ability to work from home. I did not like the fact that management was not always available during much of the day and would not help me by going on sales calls."

"I love my clients, I love being able to bring solutions to the table. I dislike not being able to trust what I am selling and the follow through of support the company has offered. It seems you are always fixing something rather than getting it done right the first time."

"The industry I have been in for the last 25 years has gone soft and clients are abandoning that media, although there are many other options available through the tunnel. As a previous Director with budgeting experience, I was aware that layoffs were inevitable, so was not surprised when I received the call. So, my industry may be softening, but my love of managing and encouraging people has not."

"I love advertising and more so the automotive industry. I do not believe in print advertising. It is not the best solution for an advertiser overall. Not to mention that it is much more expensive to do print with no true ROI. However I understand that in some industries, the older generation does not always have a full understanding of the Digital Media."

"It was a learning experience."

"I liked the flexibility of being able to call on any business you wanted to make a sale"

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"be yourself. make sure you ask specific questions about the payment structure."

What don't you like about working at The Greensheet?

"They lie about how much money you can make. They claim the salary is between $65,000-$90,000. This is a lie. The base for an inside sales rep is $30,000. They pay you 3% on the money you collect when...and only when your weekly revenue averages at least $3,000 for a month. They do not expect you to reach this level until after the first year you work there.The moral is very low in the office with little to no motivation from management. The incentives they give are between $1-$5 for new business sold. Or sometimes they let you wear jeans, this is far and in between."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Management needs to try to inspire and motivate people more. Stop micromanaging. Treat the people that work for them like valuable assets instead of the hired help/warm bodies."
