I have been working at GasPedal full-time for more than a year

Pros

The people who work here are awesome and care about their work and each other. The "product" is an amazing community of good people and it's fun to see how much value they get out of the service. It's also super cool to be working with the biggest brands on the planet specifically around social media (possibly the hottest topic).

Cons

The company can occasionally suffer from ADD and most of your friends won't have ever heard of it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work.

    I worked at GasPedal full-time

    Pros

    Unfortunately none! Lots of unfulfilled promises and micromanagement!

    Cons

    They cycle through employees and don't feel bad about it. Once they decide you "are no longer a fit", which happens often and can happen anytime (usually within first 3 months), they will fire you. You are always on a probationary period here. They will hire new employees with lots of promises and not deliver.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with yourselves. There's a reason why A LOT of people are no longer there. You want the best but you have no employee loyalty and you lie to prospective employees about why the position is open. The people that are still there are just stuck there.

    I worked at GasPedal

    Pros

    Don't be lured by the Client list - there aren't any positive aspects to working here

    Cons

    The CEO hires and fires people like they're on an assembly line.
    Often there are more unpaid interns at work than paid employees.
    The CEO micromanages every aspect of the business.
    Lots of grunt-work and tasks that are not fulfilling or meaningful to anyone who is serious about being a strategic thought leader in the word of mouth or social media space.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at your own reputation and word-of-mouth. There are no former, and likely no current employees, that have anything positive to say about the CEO.
