    I have been at Cision for a little under three years and have been promoted three times. There is a lot of opportunity for growth if you are performing and hitting your goals. As with any acquisition, there has been a lot of change in a short amount of time but the change has been positive and is leading our company in the right direction. I am very excited to be working for an industry leader in the space, not to mention one of the most fun companies I have ever worked for. The work life balance is phenomenal and you will definitely be rewarded for your hard work. While the environment is laid back, you are held accountable and hard work definitely noticed by management.


    I am a firm believer that no organization is perfect, however there is nothing that I would determine as a "con" to working here. While I know I could probably be making more as a top performer in other sales organizations, the culture, people I work with and work life balance keep me happy at Cision. This company will absolutely be willing to discuss compensation if you are consistently performing.
