Pros

Good pay if you have a good territory in Ad Sales....

Cons

Sucks if you have a crappy territory (which I do) and the pay sucks...company has you sign a contract to "pay back" any draw not earned yet after six months of being here, they decided to "lower" our base rate from 40K to 24K...what kind of company does that? SCANDALOUS!!!

Advice to Management

You shouldn't lower an employees base pay. They rely on that to feed their families. I can see lowering the commission scale (lord knows there are plenty of people getting fat off of that) but base pay??? LUDICROUS!!!!

    Pros

    Incredible commissions, good benefits, informal atmosphere

    Cons

    Territory assignments are critical to long term success. These are distributed by group management based on personal relationships. Advertised as "no one can pay to be on Angie's List" , a half truth in that the positioning on the list is bought, that is the advertising they sell!

    Advice to Management

    Try an ethical approach to assigning territories and dealing with your sales people

    Pros

    Angie's List promotes a very upbeat positive work environment. They encourage employees to have time off with their families as well as organizing social functions for the staff.

    Cons

    As is the case with any new and emerging company, there is always change. I don't have a problem with it, but some of the employees that have been here for a while struggle to embrace it.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on the path you are on and continue to invest in your people, teach, develop and grow internally. This will continue to ensure that all of Angie's List values are intact long-term.
