    Pros

    Great culture! People are smart, helpful and collaborative. There's a lot of room for growth. You have an opportunity to make a huge impact. Great product, with a strong community of users ... That means warm leads for AEs. Great commission accelerators. Work from home on Fridays for top sales performers. 

    Cons

    Not the best location. There's some growing pains. Lacking in perks that other Bay Area startups have.

    Advice to Management

    More perks will keep your current employees happy, and will help with recruitment. Other startups in the area offer competitive perks ... Catered lunch, unlimited PTO etc.

    Pros

    DNN's products are definitely top notch, stocked kitchen, occasional catered lunches, people from the community are very passionate about the brand and the platform.

    Cons

    The company culture needs a lot of improvement. High employee churn rates. There's a lot of finger pointing that comes from even the top level managers – it's pretty common for the majority of people here to not take personal responsibility. Also, managers tend to not listen to their employees. Not a great place to be if you hope to make an impact. If you're a yes man, then this place might work better for you.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees more. Give credit and praise when it's due, even for small wins. Change the company culture to one where everyone, included C-Suite managers, take responsibility for their errors and stop throwing everyone under the bus.


  3. Great place to gain essential sales experience in a past-paced, team-oriented environment.

    Pros

    Management hires selectively, but democratically. Management genuinely cares about the success and professional development of employees. Office culture is constantly transforming, but at the moment, vibes are friendly and relaxed, with an edge of competitiveness. Trending towards healthier snacks, as well. Work-life balance is strong if you have the will-power to take advantage of your afternoons/evenings. Pay is pretty standard for standard achievement; over achievement is rewarded handsomely.

    Cons

    Ain't no one livin' in San Mateo, lemme tell you that. Commute from the city isn't too bad, if you're in sync with the sales team. Past snacking options tended to be sugar-laiden, teeth-destroyers, but that's changing. Soda is still a worrisome epidemic.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to fill the sales team with the best, young talent open a satellite office in San Francisco. Biking to work would be the dream of all dreams. A monthly gym reimbursement would be stellar, as would a monthly book allowance. Encouraging an active and engaged work-life balance would be a huge pro that would be easily instituted.
