    Pros

    -Very smart, hard-working people are hired to work here. Somehow, the company recruits great talent and down-to-earth individuals, for the most part.
    -401(k) matching, full benefits, a drink fridge.
    -The product itself is outstanding.
    -The product and development team is full of mostly upstanding, hard-working and brilliant folks.

    Cons

    This is the worst Silicon Valley SaaS company imaginable at which to grow a sustainable, challenging and rewarding career in sales/account management. Awful culture, paltry pay, mind-numbing work and a strange climate of intimidation, fear-mongering and 'good ol' boys' Wolf of Wall Street B.S. straight from the 1980s soils the entire sales department. The majority of employees worth their salt leave within 2 years for greener pastures. The funny thing is that this spectrum of 'better' options available ranges from bootstrapped start-ups to Google/Facebook/Salesforce behemoths. People have actually chosen to be unemployed rather than deal with this soul-suck of an office. This company is literally a stepping stone to other careers, and is sinking in its own morass of mediocrity.

    The sales department (the entire company, essentially) is run as a dictatorship. Each VP (and each incompetent manager under them) has unilateral authority that goes mostly unchecked. The volume of your voice is more important than the actual work that you do, in that it reaffirms managements' archaic approach to sales. This climate breeds resentment, apathy, rampant job-searching (during work hours!) and fear among employees. Work is largely mindless, repetitive and serves the sole purpose of being able to humble-brag about 'big deals' during meetings with management. It is a tragic comedy.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to be a well-regarded company in the SaaS space, start acting like it. IXL will continue hemorrhaging great employees unless this happens.
