Awful sales management and culture
Direct Energy Consultant (Former Employee) – Massachusetts – 9 July 2016
Great money at the beginning, but sales culture was awful and there was terrible leadership. At my first meeting, my boss took a call on speakerphone and sapped it up with his customer, "oh you are absolutely one of my fav customers", to show how smooth he could bullsh*t. When she responded, he muted the phone and proceeded to mock her to the rest of us. Regularly taught us to lie about our product on the doors, how to laugh in people's faces and belittle them so they will buy easier, and other dishonest techniques. I hated the culture, it made me feel gross so I left. On the whole, it wasn't all bad, I made some friends, the group activities were good, and the product is excellent, I've seen it work out for people.
Good money, good product
terrible sales management
