    Pros

    Compensation, company culture, transparency, people

    I enjoyed the people and the overall vibe. It was exciting to be a part of something that was growing and transitioning so quickly. I also appreciated the passion and transparency of CEO James Beriker. I believe this company is headed in the right direction and could do very well if they stay on top of their technology.

    Cons

    Okay, I've read some of the scathing reviews here, so want to put this in perspective. First off, YES this company is absolutely in transition, but it's not a bad thing. In fact I see it as essential to take this company to the next level. The unfortunate part is that several people were laid off (including myself) in the process, so of course the feedback is not going to be all rosy. That said, I happen to agree with the direction of the company and the necessity for a direct sales force to ensure long-term success. I guess the con here would be the company overestimated sales forecasts and hired a direct sales force based on those numbers... a huge investment. When results did not meet expectations for Q2, myself and several others were "impacted". I will say that the numbers we did pull in were solid and quite respectable given the newness of the sales force, the increasingly competitive environment and the SEO hiccups that impacted SH performance. IMHO to reduce the direct sales force after such a short time was a mistake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course. The decision was made to go direct (which I agree with for stability/success in the long term) but give it a chance! They have/had really great people at SH, so invest in and empower them!

    Also make sure technology is priority #1.
    The product has to be BETTER than the competition, especially since the brand awareness is not yet there. In my time there, we experienced some SEO issues that really impacted our performance (may have since been resolved). Without performance results, it's an impossible sell even for the most seasoned sales rep. SH must be able to deliver more unique traffic, utilize ALL spend and provide more qualified applicants to compete especially with all the competition now entering the aggregator space.
