I worked at Demandforce

Pros

Fun environment...this is kind of a pro, but the company is also very fratty.

Cons

I was recently fired after working for a couple months. Was placed in a new, untested region and was told that I had to hit the same quotas as people in more established veticals. It was incredibly difficult...no matter how many hours I put in, the vertical just wasn't working. It almost felt upper management had put zero thought into any potential difficulties the region might face. It all came down to numbers--I was not pulling in enough money for the company. I understand that I can't get paid for a sales job when I am not selling, but I feel as if I was never given the opportunity to succeed. I had no experience in sales. My suggestions for young people trying to get into sales is to maybe look somewhere else--you honestly won't have a ton of time to get into the groove of things at this company.

    Pros

    +Fast Growing Company
    +Training is good for new hires
    +Play hard, party hard atmosphere
    +Great Visionaries

    Cons

    +Mid-level management are not professional
    +Numbers Driven (little job security)
    +Growing so fast, starting to turn sales into a meat grinder, rather than development
    +Mid-level management uses scare tactics including screaming and fear

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into a switch in midlevel management or some new training for them. Company has a great culture, but fear by many is it is steering itself into the abyss.

    Reviews of management would also be beneficial. I have worked at many companies and the unprofessionalism by mid-level is mind boggling at best.

    Pros

    +Downtown SF
    +Fast Growing Company
    +Service sells itself
    +Top Execs have a great vision

    Cons

    -Mid-Level Management is bad.....really bad (unprofessional) - yelling, screaming, using fear
    -Frat atmosphere (at times)
    -Advancement seems to be bias
    -Sales Quota is the same across the board, regardless of region

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management training for mid-level management is something that is needed. Many managers appear to use fear, yelling, talking down to co-workers to try to motivate them. Professionalism is lacking. Great culture overall, but many are starting to question where company is headed do to lack of leadership found in mid-level.
