Pros

Young group of people that work hard and play hard. Most are friends that hang out after work and on weekends. Feeling of being part of growing something. Product overall is good, very innovative, works well.

Cons

Short-sighted management, with strict call and activity metrics on salespeople. They take a robotic approach to selling, very scripted, very methodical... and don't allow sales people to be creative or 'go out of the box' to sell and win deals. People will make calls, just to make their call quota for the day/week... for fear of being put on a performance plan.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I understand the company needs to grow after the recent acquisition and must keep close restriction on sales people's activity, but allow them to be creative, and do whatever is necessary to close deals. Make it about sales performance, not call numbers.

    Indeed is an embarrassment to other silicon valley companies

    Pros

    Great teammates, however that is the only pro to working at Indeed.

    Cons

    If you want to stay stagnant in your career, get treated like a child, be absurdly micro-managed, make around $30k less than other Silicon Valley counterparts, then you should work at Indeed. They do not care about their employees at all. When looking at successful silicon valley companies, they all have a few things in common. They treat their employees like they actually are valued; Indeed does not do that. They also encourage growth and potential in their employees; Indeed does not do that. Other silicon valley companies will actually pay you a decent salary, and have managers who communicate with you transparently instead of giving you vague or no answers or guidance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start hiring managers with actual management experience. Managers seem unable to look at big picture priorities and focus on micro-managing since they do not know how to actually manage people. The managers are running their teams into the ground, and losing great talent due to their ineptitude.

    I have been working at Indeed as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    * Everyone in the company seems invested in furthering your abilities, and helping you become better at what you do.
    * Meetings are short and to the point.
    * They embrace new and cutting-edge technologies.
    * You work with some of the most brilliant people you have met.
    * Collaborative work environment where management seems to care about each individual greatly.
    * Free lunch. Weekly/monthly outings. Fun people to work with.

    Cons

    * Since they are smaller, opportunities to "work your way up" can be limited, but this is also a plus for them.
