RUN! Run as fast as you can in the Opposite direction!!!
Account Executive (Former Employee), Irving, TXAugust 1, 2014
Pros: decent benefits -thats about it
Cons: no direction, no training, poor management, no sales contests, local instructors short staffed
This company says everything to get one on board. For what they say below I will interpret the true meaning in parenthesis. Six figures in the first year!! ($45k if you're lucky) Free training!! (Its true but they'll never give you the time for it,) Leads!! (someone calls in wanting 1 excel class) Pre-set appointments!! (you cold call the phone book – more... till someone says yes.) Team comradery!! (Good old fashion Nepotism, Favoritism and Backstabbing for accounts) This position is a resume starter and for fresh off the block college graduates. May I for warn those who fall for their elite sparkly brochure and get in and actually see that its all been Photoshopped! Euphemistically speaking. – less

Re-work training schedules
Help Desk Analyst (Former Employee), Anaheim, CAJune 2, 2014
The beginner courses were too remedial and did not provide enough information or practice for students to be prepared for the advanced courses. The courses should have been spread to a few hours a day with time for practice instead of 1 8 hour course. It is too much information to absorb and remember in most cases.

Great place to get your own certifications
Master Instructor (Former Employee), Melville, NYMay 28, 2014
Pros: great place to get free certifications.
Cons: poor place if you are seeking advancement and a career.
If you want to obtain Microsoft Certifications of free, this is the place to work. Past that, New Horizons is not the optimal company to work for.

There is very little room for advancement, lack-luster management and poor pay.

The only person I truly enjoyed working with was my direct manager. She was the kindest, most understanding and easiest person – more... in the organization to communicate with.

The most difficult part of the job was working with Upper Management. They need a lesson on how to treat there employees. It has been said many times buy local and Corporate Management that "New Horizons is a sales organization that happens to do training".

The company needs more Educators in upper Management, not salespeople – less

You feel the Daily Grind by the Sales Manager
Account Executive (Current Employee), Irving, TXMay 21, 2014
Pros: good benefits
Cons: blind dialing each day bad management no direction
A typical day here is make dials, dials, dials....That is all they care about as far as metrics is concerned. As soon as you sell it the mentality is to dump the customer, move on to the next without the thought or feeling of customer service. This company does not believe in marketing because that is what the account executive is for. The culture of – more... the sales floor is "a good ole boy" mantra while being "boys club," which is open to crude jokes and sexist comments. This is a good temporary need some sales experience job. There is definitely a double standard when it comes to men sales people and women sales people and one can clearly see it in the number of men verses women. – less

Never a dull moment
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Spokane Valley, WAMay 2, 2014
Pros: a pretty liberal break policy
Cons: required daily number of cold calls to have to be made.
Although new to sales, I worked hard to learn. Typical day was to be assigned a section of phone book, and to call each and every phone number in order to recruit people for computer training, suggest computer training based on the companies needs, and when new students arrived, being there to greet and assist the new student as needed. How to speak – more... on the phone to people. The relationship between coworkers, was good, as everyone tried their hardest to assist as needed. Hardest part of the job was seeing, based on specific questions, what computer training would benefit the company, and being able to commit to it. The most enjoyable part of the job was, after suggesting their training needs, having the prospective customer agree and state "sign me up". Very gratifying. – less

Excellent training product with a great database of clients
Account Executive (Former Employee), Seattle, WAJanuary 14, 2014
Pros: freedom to develop relationships with businesses and custom build the right training solutions
Cons: lack of support by marketing and corporate
As an Account Executive, I worked hand in hand with local businesses to develop custom training solutions for their technology systems.
I learned a great deal about the inner workings of all kinds of businesses and gained a deep understanding of the corporate structure.
My team was small, only 4 others, and we were responsible for the entire Pacific – more... Northwest region. This level of teamwork has very high standards because there is nobody else to pick up the slack. Accountability and responsibility were ingrained in me as a result of this.
The hardest part of the job was sifting through endless data searching for potential leads, but the best part of the job was connecting with an organization who truly needed our product. At that point, developing rapport and building solid relationships sealed most of the deals. – less

Account Executive (Former Employee), Houston, TXDecember 6, 2013
Pros: potential of making as much money as youk wanted.
Cons: cold calling was boring
Very high energy workplace. A lot of cold calling was the majority of my day. Trying to get clients in for free computer classes so they would see the value in having their employees trained and up to date on Microsoft and other classes geared towards program and design.
