    No Dead Ends at DiscoverOrg

    I have been working at DiscoverOrg full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work environment is top notch. I have worked at companies where everyone is watching out for their own self-interests. DiscoverOrg could not be more different. Everyone is supportive as opposed to combative and the success of the team is more important than the success of an individual.

    Management is friendly and always has an open door. Ideas are welcomed and change (outside of the data collection method) is not feared. They take a hands on approach, providing a personal involvement with employees instead of standing on high dictating orders.

    In addition, management rewards hard work and promotes from within as much as possible. A refreshing change from the "you've been here longest" mentality.

    One of the biggest Pros is that you can believe in the service DiscoverOrg provides. When you can rely on facts as opposed to embellishments, you are in a good spot.

    Cons

    The only challenges are those that come with a rapidly expanding company. All good problems to have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really need a 401K. I plan on staying with this company as long as they will have me and would like some financial security in that decision.

    Pros

    Most of the managers are pretty nice, and the executive who works in our building (Kirk) is very involved and fun to work with. Current office is pretty full, but I think they plan on moving us soon. Some departments seem to have room for growth, which is nice. My manager works well with my appointments, which is good.

    Cons

    ~High management doesn't comment on our work much (our department anyways), and individuals in other departments don't seem to appreciate it either. A thank you after finding contacts on a short deadline would be nice.
    ~Communication period between most departments, mainly research to sales or account management, lacks severely.
    ~Each department is more or less its own ecosystem instead of an integrated unified company.There are cliques like college, we have our popular kids, geeks, jocks, preps and loners.
    ~Some perks differ from manager to manager. Rewards, birthday/work anniversaries, ect. Would be nice if again, people were on the same age.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring all managers to same page as far as what is going in on the company so that they can in turn inform the individuals below them.

    Pros

    DiscoverOrg is hands down the best company I have ever worked for! I came to DiscoverOrg from a dead end job and now just over a year later DiscoverOrg gave me a chance to grow within the company by simply working hard. I love coming to work everyday and working along side a great team! The atmosphere this company provides is truly amazing and I feel so blessed to work for them. I feel 100% comfortable going and talking to any manager, director in this company including the owners! They are all hands on, willing to listen to anything you have to say or any problems I may have. Here's to many more years of working hard for a great company and team!

    Cons

    My only complaint if it is even one would be that the building is running out of room from company growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe a 401K in the future?

    Pros

    Management cares about the employees. Senior management listens to all the staff. It does not feel much like corporate America.

    Cons

    The benefit package is not very good, but this is a small company. Company should consider a 401 k program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the company growing!

    Pros

    For any company looking to nail down employee loyalty, they need to look at what DiscoverOrg has done. Managers are friendly and passionate about their jobs and treat everyone with the utmost respect. Never in my life have I felt like my employers actually cared about me until I got this job. Raises, promotions, and bonuses are performance based which keeps the team striving to do their best.

    Cons

    My work station changes quite a bit due to the growth of the company which is a bit of a pain but honestly, I could do the research in the hallway as long as I have a phone in hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the personal touch!

    I have been working at DiscoverOrg full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is very successful, growing quickly, and constantly hiring and promoting from within. While no longer a start-up, the company makes efforts to bring employees from every department together often through hosted lunches, bowling nights and events celebrating sales and research successes – most recently the entire company celebrated reaching 93% direct dials on the Portland Spirit dinner cruise. Co-workers are close and get along well, with many getting together for drinks outside of work. The owners are very friendly, active in the company, and invested in their employees. One of the co-owners even has employees over for football on Sundays. Solid, affordable health insurance through Kaiser Permanente, dental through Willamette Dental, and Aflac is also offered. Extra hours available to research staff, casual dress for research and IT, PTO available, gift cards for projects completed well, lots of room for advancement as all lead research and management positions are promoted from within.

    Cons

    The workload can be overwhelming at times. Expectations are high and do shift as needs arise. The company has outgrown three buildings since I came on board, and as departments have grown, many employees have been shuffled and reshuffled into smaller work spaces, which can be frustrating. It would be nice if the company purchased a larger building so every department could once again be housed under one roof. Given funding, I am sure this is the plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication with one another and delivery of a unified message to each department. A consistent performance review schedule so employees know where they stand and what their expectations are.
