    I have been working at Engage121 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    the tech team and the ceo worked hard on the core platform and product and accomplished a lot in a short amount of time. They tried hard to be innovative.

    Cons

    it is a horrible working environment. A lot of 'walking on eggshells' around the office. If you are one of the favored ones you got better treatment but still I saw one of the so called favorites get fired after 5 years of loyalty for one minor mistake. the company is very cheap too and everything $ wise is scrutinized. I agree with the one review above about 80s style boiler room sales tactics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    lighten up on your employees and update your management style to better reflect this decade.

    I worked at Engage121 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some very nice and smart staff. At the time it was a good place to learn social media. If you live in the area it is a convenient location.

    Cons

    Very high turnover for such a small company. People are not leaving because they are not capable. They leave for better growth opportunities with a real chance for financial reward.

    A lot of self praise goes on which makes it hard to understand the competitive marketplace.

    Also not a start up - has been around for a long time. Recommend researching the history before joining. Senior management has no knowledge of how to manage people. Agree with review above that it is an unprofessional and dismal environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some classes on how to manage people.
