    It's the best place to work!

    Regional Sales Manager (Current Employee)
    Portland, OR

    ProsIt is not an easy place to get a job, but it is so worth the effort. My colleagues and our leadership bring passion and intelligence to a complex set of business problems and we have proven out, when done right, it drives great things for companies. Not only do we make our customers better employers, we apply the technology ourselves, in a way that makes it easy to focus on the most important things, and to see real time feedback on achievement. It's a beautiful thing.

    ConsIt's not easy to get a job here - the folks doing the hiring are serious about screening people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the enthusiasm and the transparency. It's appreciated. Stay committed to the customer experience!

    Great Company with solid benefits

    Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexible working conditions, my manager is very helpful and receptive to issues I have. The people I work with are all very supportive and helpful.

    ConsLots of different systems to log into (Okta is resolving some of this). Not all processes are ironed out. The company has grown so fast that policies and procedures are now trying to catch up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to develop the individuals on your teams.

    Exciting ride!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat compensation that is extremely competitive in the software industry. The people here are passionate and love to win, it really seems like everyone, from legal, finance, and even internal HR, is behind sales. The overall culture is exciting.

    ConsThey are working hard to ensure customer service is at the same level as the technology, but it can be problematic for an employee to seek answers on behalf of clients.

    Advice to Senior ManagementArm the field sales with the abilities to assist existing clients beyond just saying "create a case"
