Pros

Bright and surprisingly creative and flexible staff makes work engaging and fun. Long-timers know where the bodies are buried and are able to steer newbies clear of potential problems. Much of the training is self-help videos and online exercises, generally very good. Excellent market data, leads and research ensure the best and brightest have the best info to make good decisions and to be most productive. Solid benefits and pay. Vision and Mission are easy to get behind and support.

Cons

A challenging environment to gain proficiency; some processes seem over engineered and people in the know go around these hurdles, causing fires elsewhere. Good communication and transparency, though, but cycles are burned unnecessarily. CYA emails and figuring out what's going on by the 48th forward is tedious, but it's in the culture.

Advice to Management

We need a process to autopsy things that go wrong and another to challenge industry data and stats based on our own experiences. Teams in the field have a lot of industry and competitive insight that could better be shared - perhaps on Salesforce "Chatter" Also, we should have "No Meeting Fridays" to catch up, distill and share what we've learned.

    Pros

    The pay is alright and the supervisors and coordinators are easy to get along with. The benefits are also fairly good. Incentive compensation is offered quarterly so that is always a nice bonus. Promotes from within.

    Cons

    Everything continuously changes and it's since it's corporation everything comes down to the bottom line for all the share holders. The company policies themselves make the job suck at times. Like most places upper management has no clue what people actually goes through on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Get your hands dirty to have a better understanding of what goes on, especially when you feel the need to constantly change metrics.

    Pros

    Fairly easy going, not a lot of pressure - with the exception of one micro-manager. But everyplace has the one disgruntled employee that ruins it for everyone.

    Cons

    Only upper management is staff. Everyone else is "permanent" freelance. And the company does little things to remind you of your non-employee status all the time.
