    So much room for opportunity

    Account Executive (Current Employee)
    Beltsville, MD

    ProsHeadquarters are awesome- bootcamp, yoga, delicious coffee, young atmosphere.

    So much room for opportunity. The digital marketing industry has seen significant change the past couple year. With that, a company has to change as well. If you can't adapt to change and go with the flow, Vocus isn't the place for you. If you aren't afraid of working hard, going the extra mile, and staying positive, then you will love it here!

    ConsThe office is open on Christmas Eve.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work so far...

    SBE Sales (Current Employee)
    Herndon, VA

    ProsThey restructured the comp for SBE and MMSE Sales... much more compelling than before
    Change in leadership- the environment feels much more team focused... our executives make a point of congratulating us and knowing our names!
    Product is awesome- its fun to sell- and not very technical
    Free Candy and Drinks- Food trucks come to MD-- not Herndon...
    Quotas are not unrealistic if you do work

    ConsNo food trucks at the Herndon Office
    We definitely went through some growing pains and alot of things changed quickly but it seems like it was all for the better
    I would love the ability to bring my dog to work!

    Advice to Senior ManagementSales reps like to be recognized, continue to come to the Herndon office so we can see more leadership!

    Vocus has the best work environment I have ever experienced

    Marketing (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsThere is a great work-life balance here. The facilities are amazing with a large gym, basketball court and fitness classes daily like boot camp and yoga.

    ConsSome turnover but this is to be expected from a sales heavy organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep investing in top talent!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVocus provides everything you need to produce quality outcomes in your job performance as well as in your life. The facility is equipped with a gym, cafe, spa, and some many benefits that foster the Work Hard and Play Hard mentality.

    ConsFlexibility can sometimes lead to unprofessionalism in just a few.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen communication is key and keep doing what you are doing.

    Challenging, Rewarding, Satisfying!!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Beltsville, MD

    ProsVocus has been extremely challenging to me professionally, but without that I wouldn't be where I am atoday. This isn't a place for someone who wants to skate by and not learn, contribute, and make a difference. We want hard working and talented professionals that can come in, make an impact and separate us from competitors. I have been with Vocus for 2 years and we have been through a lot of growth & change, but that's what comes with being employed with a progressive company and in a modern field. We are continuing to make a strong push into the digital marketing space where we will become cloud marketing leaders.

    One of the best parts of working for Vocus in the lateral transparency. Every department works extremely well together and communicates on all levels. You just don't find that at all multi-million dollar companies.

    And the amenities are a touch of Silicon Valley right here in Beltsville, MD!

    ConsTo contradict myself, the growth and change. It's difficult to find a steady routine but that can be exciting. Our employees are adaptable and I truly believe we are on the right path in 2014.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe need to be communicating on the same level we do laterally. Town Hall meetings can be a bit fluffy. I would encourage our executives to hold quarterly department meetings and get togethers.

    Great Opportunities

    Small Business Sales Representative (Current Employee)
    Beltsville, MD

    ProsGreat work environment, state of the art building
    Gym in the building
    Opportunities for growth and promotion are there for the hard workers
    Awesome team of hard working employees to help grow the business
    Food trucks/vendors almost every day of the week - it makes me WANT to forget to pack my lunch!

    ConsParking can be difficult, be sure to get there early!
    Also? The fruit cart empties early in the day, be sure to pick up a fresh apple or pear first thing in the morning!

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open with communication. Scrambling for a resolution last minute can be a challenge.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
