I worked at Extole full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Effective, transparent management team. Energetic, talented staff. Blue chip clients. Amazing product team leading the charge in the white-hot social marketing space.

Cons

Sales driven approach can lead to rapid change in spite of great technical complexity. Whether this is a "con" or just a reality of the business opportunity is hard to say. They pull it off though!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not much they don't already know I think. Execution should remain the primary focus.

    Pros

    The year over year company progress is significant and it's felt in the culture. Shared quarterly goals make collaboration inevitable and critical to both individual success and engagement across our teams. Leadership is confident, innovative and accessible. There's a strong focus on career growth and professional development. Everyone is smart, outgoing and cares genuinely about making it a fun place to be everyday.

    Cons

    If you're not able to assert yourself, you will miss out. It would be a tough environment for people who don't like to take on new projects and responsibilities outside their comfort zone or basic job functions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Downtown office location is much better than SOMA

    Pros

    Deeply creative environment with an emphasis on inclusiveness in engineering, client services and sales/marketing process and success. Major product changes (SaaS) were implemented in 2013 and the comprehensive Offermatica team is now focused on execution and growth into verticals that will benefit from social rewards marketing.

    Cons

    Prospect clients still discovering an alternative to SEO/SEM and understanding the channel of reward marketing that pays customers instead of Adword providers. Extole is bringing this message to target verticals to improve adoption and deliver compelling case studies. A big challenge, but the client list and growth will be proving that out in 2014

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep building the company identity and culture to attract the best people and customers. The present mix of experienced and new employees has created a dynamic environment where everyone's ideas and opinions count. Keep it up.
