    Pros

    Laid-back environment; easy-going, supportive managers.

    Cons

    Business model is an ultimate failure, continual re-adjustments to compensate and attempt to gain and keep memberships, high turn-over rate, no real future.

    Advice to Management

    No advice...it is a sinking ship...good luck.

    Pros

    Although it's not what it once way, the culture is pretty laid back and fun.

    Cons

    The absolute lack of clear direction. I've never seen so many executives get hired and then either quit or get fired in less than a year. The CTO position has changed heads 3-4 times in the last 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together, get a plan (a good one) and stick to it.

    Pros

    In my experience the people at Angie's List are generally friendly and welcoming to others, compared to other work environments. It helps make work fun.

    Cons

    There is a lot of change and so you have to be flexible, adaptable, positive, easy going, composed.

    Advice to Management

    Let's try to focus on our objectives and be more careful & plan when it comes to the new ideas. We're good at it, but we're getting too big to turn on a dime.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with great clients across the nation, business casual dress, great vacation day package.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the sales managers play favorites when giving market territory. Increasingly high goals make it more difficult to make any money and is creating a less than ethical work environment.

    Advice to Management

    None because it probably wouldn't matter.

    Pros

    Casual, fun work environment. Lots of transparency and management was very receptive to input from employees. Pay was definitely fair for the amount of work they expected.

    Cons

    Work was repetitive. Little incentive to perform as there was no bonus structure. Long term business plans and technology roll outs were constantly delayed with little or no explanation.

    Advice to Management

    The rapid growth of the department was not always handled as well as it could have been. As new team members were added, the department felt more isolating and less like a real team.

    Pros

    Great work environment, great people & culture, management seems to really care.

    Cons

    Bad scheduling, day to day schedule often changes and it's extremely frustrating if you have kids or other jobs.

    Pros

    The people. I have made some of the best friends working at Angie's List. The pay was rewarding but you worked hard to get the pay.

    Cons

    No value in the people. Top performing sales reps are constantly held back or given obstacles so that upper management can say that you aren't performing. Very high turn over and the people that are good at their job, ultimately find a better career path within another company.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people, they are the only thing keeping your sinking ship afloat.
