A lightening speed, sometimes sloppy, but always exciting place to work.

Pros

Great team, moves fast, exciting projects are always available to work on. A product that has the potential to change the way people to business locally and truly help local merchants.

Cons

While we move fast, we also can take way to long to execute. When things are finally shipped, they're not always of an amazing quality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more inspiration and direction toward the future. It feels like we're constantly going off in every direction at once and there are always multiple teams working on overlapping tasks with poor or no alignment.

    Pros

    Laptop, Iphone. Opportunity to make decent commission during ramp up period.

    Cons

    No communication. The inside sales team is the focus of the sales force. Very little opportunity for new employees. Completely remote, very little direct contact with management. Poorly structured sales organization from an outside perspective. Small commissions, scattered leads with no defined territory. Not able to support more than 1 or 2 successful sales people per market. Only 3 out of about 12 hit quota. 100% turnover in less than a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is sorely lacking. Either support your outside salesforce or get rid of it all together. Provide opportunity to succeed to more than just a few select employees.

    Pros

    You meet great people, you can go to work in sweatpants ! Was a great location downtown

    Cons

    Management has no idea what they are doing ... Very hard to track them down during the day (somehow they all disappear for most of the day) ! ...Not very good pay for the amount of work... Popularity contest instead of actual work productivity ... Each department passes a problem on to the next ... No one takes action or responsibility ... A lot of problems are just swept under the rug and not resolved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized and actually help your employees
