Compensation and culture. Can easily make 6 figures on the inside sales floor. Great people and exciting company to work for.Cons
Upward mobility is limited especially pertaining to the sales floor. It is hard to move into management or vertically into other departments.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Relax on monitoring employees days using arbitrary metrics. They do not accurately portray the output, efficiency or effectiveness of an employee.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

The interview process is totally a mess that I have never met before. They sent me code challenge and I finished and sent back to them, passed that and got contacted to schedule a phone interview with their tech. I replied the email immediately and after a few days they called and said they hadn't received my reply. OK! I rescheduled another date. At the scheduled time I waited and waited and waited no one called, tried to send email and called HR to see what was going on, no respond at all. OK! Then a few days later I got an email with no-reply email address saying "XXX called you during the scheduled interview time and mentioned to me he spoke to you yesterday. I'm not sure why you think he did not call. I'm sorry and I'm not sure where the communication gap happened. At this time, the hiring manager has decided to move forward with other candidates. Thank you for your time and interest." Now they blamed me it was my fault lying that I didn't talked with their interviewer? Can you believe that? I must talked with a ghost at that time. Unbelievable experience, very disappointed and time wasted.No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
