Your colleagues who you bond and share the pain with through the struggle and stress that is the company.Cons
Where does one begin? If you are planning to join this company, please do not take this review with a grain of salt as it takes a lot of effort/time to put forth a proper review. It is not just because of a negative experience that people have left so many negative reviews; the major benefit would be to warn others from making the same career mistake. Take a look at the approval rating. That in itself should hopefully steer prospects from jumping into the lava pit.
When you are young and innocent, fresh out of college, one would naively assume this level of stress that comes with the job is just part of life. Snap out of it!!! It is not! To go above and beyond for a satisfying return on investment is one thing, but to be mentally and physically worn out from the result of being in this company has left many forever scarred (PTSD).
The company is founded/led by a one-two-punch duo who are also partnered outside of the company. This is the first major red flag. There would be endless days of over the top arguments (yelling to be exact) from said duo towards each other, their subordinates and clients. Nobody ever dares to bring this up to them for whatever reason but is a known issue. Management, aka, the owners, aka, the husband and wife duo controls every single output down to the T. In such a niche market, the company has remained stagnant for the past decade and has failed to innovate because management is set in their ways. Favoritism is evident and any input or ideas from anybody outside of that realm is immediately struck down and put to bed. The blame game is the most favored game by management and there is never enough fun in that category. This creates friction, stress, low morale, and in result huge turnover rates across all departments. There isn’t one department that is safe from this statistic. Clients and team leads are constantly battling the aftermath of people quitting left and right (think of reconstruction of the south after the Civil War combined with Groundhog Day, the movie).
Pay is extremely low and not at all competitive to the market, even in a slumping economy. If you should happen to take the bait of taking on this uphill challenge, demand the appropriate compensation from the start and do not take no for an answer. However, you will not sleep soundly as your demands will be avenged with constant pressure to perform at a level that only ants can handle. There is no shortage of management wanting more, more, MORE!! As account managers, you are thrust into a sea of training that sets you up for failure from the start due to an overwhelming amount of information overload. Combine that with the amount of clients to handle, constant miscommunication with an offshore team (through no fault of their own), one simply has no other option but to fail.
This company does not value its employees. I’ve seen at first hand many talented intelligent people quitting without hesitation or regret. People who put their sweat and tears for years into the company are treated as if they never existed. Promotion has to be demanded and will only be initially recognized as a last resort. The good companies will value, respect, appreciate and appropriately reward their employees. In return, their employees would be willing to sacrifice for the benefit of both parties. That is merely Business 102; perhaps management only took 101 for the basics. Poor pay, low morale, blame game, and constant pressure to ‘go live’ ASAP means mistakes are bound to happen (a lot of it). It’s a vicious cycle that benefits nobody.
There is no perfect company with all positives but when there are loads of negatives, you would think ‘a change is gonna come’. Think again!Advice to ManagementAdvice
