Pros

Great company benefits, relaxed work environment, parties every month, no overtime as they stress work life balance. Fun atmosphere.

Cons

Training is a joke. My dept (won't mention), there is no formal training. "Here's your computer, log on, get yourself familiar with the programs, ask questions" No real guidance, structure, too very laid back. Expects you to succeed with barely any support.

    Former Employee - Account Executive in Bellevue, WA

    Pros

    Awesome employees, no dress code, "come as you are" attitude (as long as you can sell)

    Cons

    High pressure, selling products that do not work or look like crap, which will result in you ending up with guilt and lowering your productivity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less micro managing. Get to know your sales people and their strength and weakness and work with each person individually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your business model is so poor, you'd be better off firing everyone and starting from scratch or closing your doors entirely.
