    Pros

    Food every where. All the time.

    Cons

    Sales people treat customer service reps like crap. When they really should be nicer since we're the ones who put out all of their fires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sales people adhere to the Integrity Without Compromise belief and make them stop over promising to customers!

    Pros

    Best benefits, people, employee culture benefits.

    Cons

    Huge churn! Most people I knew there do not even work there. Bros Club. Girls Club. Frat House mentality. You are just one number. They hire every two weeks and do not entirely expect everyone to succeed...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together and make teams.

    Pros

    -Talented sales reps
    -Excellent training program. If you are just getting into tech sales. Start here.
    -Benefits are the best I've ever seen
    -You can make good money by hitting targets.
    -A LOT of contests to make more money. This happens all the time.
    -Spotlight cash- if you don't know what that is... You are going to want to find out.
    -Snack wall always filled
    -Great location
    -You can build a career their with Intuit running the show.
    -Company throwing a ton of resources in customer support. This allows sales to sell and service to service.

    Cons

    -Middle and lower management is suspect
    -reps sell and provide customer service. We all know which one they spend more time on. This leads to unhappy customers and cancels.
    -Start up feel is slowly fading away

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ongoing training for all mid/low level management. A majority of the people in those positions are not coaches and can't help reps as much as they should. They might just not know how...

    Pros

    Best Sales training program that I have ever been a part of, lots of promotions, great compensation, excellent work culture and people. Leadership is great for the most part. Work hard play hard environment. Excellent team and company events

    Cons

    You have to work hard and it can be a grind. I don't find that to be a con, but some might.

    Pros

    Great culture, a ton of growth, tons to learn. You will need to mentally prepare yourself for the true meaning of, "Work hard, play hard."

    Cons

    There are not many cons. People tend to hoard the free food for dinner which is definitely not the companies fault. I'm assuming it's pretty rough in the economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To recognize good workers. Some great people are overlooked and come across unnoticed.

    Pros

    Training, Training, Training. The Nest program for new hires let's you learn the product and more importantly how to sell it at your own pace with a tremendous amount of support. The good news is the product is extremely powerful and it actually works! All the managers know what they are talking about and all of them have sold the product at a high level. I really can't say enough about the leaders, This is a world class sales organization!

    Cons

    Cold calling. Its tough. Not for the faint of heart. Getting promoted is a challenge, but it weeds out those who don't really want it. As with any sales job compensation is what you make it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the culture of the company. Keep preaching client first! Keep evolving to better the business.
    Hire more support for sales!

    Company doesn't really know who it is

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Demandforce

    Pros

    Intuit benefits are some of the best
    Snacks
    You'll make some good friends
    Great location

    Cons

    Tough to move up
    Middle management still has basically no experience
    Senior managers largely disconnected from the rest of the company and don't really get what's going on day to day
    A lot of really good people have left recently

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people actually doing the work, not people behind closed doors all the time. Only surrounding yourself with people who back you up doesn't help you get better.

    Pros

    Demandforce offers great training and is a perfect place to start a career in SAAS. The training program has really evolved. Now that we are under the Intuit umbrella, the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally has really flourished. They promote lateral moves, internal promotions and amazing volunteer programs. The benefits and work life balance philosophy are also great. They keep employee engagement very high.

    Cons

    Demandforce grew extremely fast and I feel we suffered a bit, especially with employee retention. We have really dedicated a lot of resources to fixing these issues and you can feel the positive impact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue you put resources into training and hiring the right managers.
