    Pros

    Great people, culture, and compensation

    Cons

    With growth comes headaches. Also, the financial experts and the news coming from that can be a little unsettling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the culture, but choose carefully who gets promoted

    It offers a great work environment. There is a lot of focus on health and wellness. Managers are accessible and concerned about employee growth.

    I worked at Angie's List full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The work environment is fast paced and challenging. People work hard, but also find time to relax and have fun. I felt like I worked with intelligent people who were motivated to do a good job. Benefits are excellent, good insurance with plenty of vacation time. Good work-life balance, plus you can wear jeans every day to work.

    Cons

    Constant changes in the organization, constant restructuring. This includes who you work for, the software you may be using or developing in and where you sit. The physical work environment is something to be desired. If you are thinking about working here, ask what building you'll be working in and where you'll be sitting because some buildings are in better shape than others. Although keep in mind that they move employees around constantly to different locations. Also, pay is not as competitive as other companies and turnover is high. If you're open to a fast paced, changing environment, a lot of social events available for employees, good benefits, but not necessarily looking to make a lot of money, then this place is for you. And...if you're straight out of college, then I would definitely recommend working here to jump start your career.

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere, great potential commission income if you put in the work, great colleagues to work with, room to grow through promotion, quickly growing sales department

    Cons

    Lower management seems to lack basic management training, held to arbitrary call volume metrics, new-hire training seems to be lacking which makes other sales reps job harder, QA department holding back sales department by not allowing sales reps even insinuate that ad campaigns will work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve training, improve new-hire pay to attract more talent, remove QA handcuffs to allow your well-trained sales professionals work

    I worked at Angie's List

    Pros

    It's very casual but you still have to be serious about your job. Lenient dress code and lots of young employees.

    Cons

    For the position I was in part of the salary is bonus/commission based but you can't always control the numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more benefits to the service providers.
