A Great Place To Work in General
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Orange County, CAMay 19, 2019
I enjoy working there, but every new and growing company has its growing pains. They are constantly changing systems and trying new ways to produce results causing turmoil in the workplace. Also, work / life balance is discouraged. Other than that, it is a good work environment and I am not planning to leave unless a more lucrative opportunity arises.
Tom Ferry himself is very uplifting and if you are a student of self help he is very inspiring!
Pros
Nice building and atmosphere
Cons
Time off is discouraged

Sales coach (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAAugust 23, 2018
the pay was too low. I would love to stay if the pay had been fair. Tom Ferry was a great boss. He had a lot going on in terms of his coaching program.

Coaching Consultant (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAAugust 11, 2018
expectations are extremely high, not much room to breathe.
You're pretty much expected to pound the phone all day long.
quotas are 100+ calls a day, 4 hour talk time and 4 follow ups set

Proceed with caution
Coaching Consultant (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJuly 2, 2018
This company (sales roles) are not what they advertise. They fire and terminate people OUT OF THE BLUE for jobs that they didn't advertise to you upfront.
Pros
Motivational training. That's it.
Cons
TERRIBLE cliquey and non-leadership culture. Disorganized and poor training.

Hard to respect managers with zero integrity
Coaching Consultant (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAMay 29, 2018
Its one thing to stress over sales/performance its another to feel like bad because the managers all boast about how great they are and how they made it. There is obvious favoritism the decent leads get redirected to team leads and top producers which is understandable but this should be done more discreetly as to not affect the sales floors morale.
Oh and if the vibe doesnt feel right its probably because low key there is plenty of drug use going around.

Not much different from any other corporate environment.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAFebruary 11, 2017
During my time with the company I have enjoyed some aspects of the establishment, such as the owner himself does care about his team and it can be at times be a fun environment. However, the practices within the management team can be rather questionable at times. Again not unlike many other corporate environments.
Pros
Owner cares about his people
Cons
bad management, micro managed

Fun place to work if you like sales positions
Client Services Representative (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CASeptember 6, 2016
If you are interested in making sales calls and earning a commission, this is a great place to work. Other positions can be frustrating at times, but there is a great and supportive workplace community that helps ease some of that.
Pros
Great work events and unexpected perks like the occational free lunch.
Cons
Extreme growth makes keeping up with changes within the company very difficult.

Amazing Owner but a hard place to work at.
Marketing Specialist and Video Editor (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAJanuary 31, 2014
A lot can be learned here but they will pay as little as they can get away with and management has very little experience with management. If you are not a sales person or upper management you are not treated equally more as a waste of money no matter how much you improve the company.
The owner himself is inspiring and is very genuine. He stretches himself pretty thin so he doesn't have much in the way of time to notice or help.
