Poor Management, Poor Communication, and a Company Reliant on Lying
Sales Rep (Former Employee) – Shell Gas Stations – May 11, 2013
In the short time I worked with Kognitive, I experienced an incredible lack of professionalism as well as witnessed the way in which they take serious advantage of their employees. Like traditional pyramid models of marketing, they hold promotions on a string above your head in hopes to incentivize people to move up in the ranks. They lie about compensation (for example, I was told I was going to receive compensation for gas as well as my training, neither of which was true) and they teach their employees to lie in field. In fact, included in their pitch document is a series of blatant lies that we are actually taught to use. I recommend anyone thinking about a position with Kognitive truly steer clear, as this company will soon be obsolete as they cannot sustain this kind of behavior. They grew incredibly fast and have not taken the right approaches to ensure their success. A company who treats their own employees in this fashion (empty promises and blatant lies) as well as their customer, is bound to take a serious blow as some point soon, and to be honest, I hope it does.
