    I have been working at TRUSTe

    Pros

    1. My opinions and suggestions are seriously considered. I am invited to contribute to various cross-functional efforts.
    2. I have autonomy to try out new strategies, and make things happen that are new and/or have never been done.
    3. Most people I'm surrounded by are thinking creatively and making an impact. This is a very smart, fun team - the best I've worked with!
    4. There has been great opportunity to network, learn new skills, and develop professionally
    5. Newest offerings coming out of Product are AWESOME.

    Cons

    1. Expectations of the sales team can sometimes be unrealistic, and accomplishments under-acknowledged at the highest level
    2. Your job priorities can change quickly and you need to be able to respond accordingly...it's never dull!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd like to see more communication about leadership accountability. What standards are all the executives being measured against, and how are they doing? I'd like to see a bit of a mixup at the executive level so that we can continue to get more innovative. The recent leadership changes at Policy and GPSO, plus integrating EU team back into Sales are all great examples of how leadership innovations are good for the organization.

    Investments in many areas over the past year have been tremendous, but there are always more opportunities for improvement in areas such as: a stellar customer experience, customer value beyond the service, customer and prospect content (generated by marketing and policy), and TRUSTe's visibility in the regulatory circles at State, Federal and International levels.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at TRUSTe.

    Interview Details

    Bad...bad....bad! Avoid this place like the plague.
    I applied for a position online for which I was qualified and met the requirements to a tee -- in fact, it was uncanny. So, I was not surprised when a recruiter from TRUSTe sent me an email and expressed a desire to speak with me about the opportunity. The recruiter and I spoke by phone and it was a very positive conversation, so much so that at the end of the call he told me that they would like to bring me on-site to meet the team. Great -- so far, so good. He was communicative and informed me that a recruiting coordinator would be in touch with the scheduling logistics. Again, so far so good.

    The coordinator worked me with me to set up 4 interviews on-site on a date that I said worked well for me. She was very communicative, timely and competent. She asked me to complete a formal employment application and bring it with me when I arrive. Again, so far so good. It was all positive, until....

    Two days before I am scheduled to go on-site for the four interviews, I receive a voicemail from the recruiter indicating that they need to cancel my interviews because they have decided to go with an internal candidate. Hmmmmmm.....sorry Charlie, but that doesn't pass the smell test - something is fishy! Adding to the "fishy-ness" of the story is that the recruiter says they plan to reopen it in January (5.5 weeks away from now) and we can reconnect then. Ok, let's get this straight TRUSTe: so you think enough of me to want to bring me in on-site to meet with 4 people including a VP after one phone screen with a recruiter, yet you didn't know that at the same time there was an internal candidate who you were moving on as well? Ain't buying it! So if there was this magical, internal candidate who was so qualified for the role, wouldn't that had been known when they scheduled my interviews? And to say we can revisit in 5.5 weeks is odd. Why not just interview me now? By the time I go through the process, clear a background check, drug test and get through the holidays it will be January anyway.

    I shared my story with a few recruiters I know and they all said the same thing -- that the story doesn't make sense.

    Remember, honesty is always the best policy :)
