Customer Support Representative (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

ProsLaxed work environment
Free breakfast on Fridays

ConsCompensation does not match responsibility
Communication between teams is poor at best
Do not promote within, would rather hire outside talent.

Advice to Senior ManagementLike most of the other reviews have already stated, the compensation does not match the responsibility. You hear the C team talk about all the great advantages of working for this company yet the Customer Experience team does not see/feel any of it. Please do more to support that group because soon most of the talent that you acquired during this "employers market" will leave. Also, it would be nice if you took an active interest in developing talent within your team .

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
