I have been working at LeadQual

Pros

Good hours (40-45 max), you get to sit in a cushy chair (if you like that), and a VERY fun group of young people. Also, free snacks, bagel Fridays, a foosball table, and video games for breaks.

If you do have to work late, you get a free $10 dinner.

Some employees do end up at Google, but they're still in search engine marketing-related jobs.

Cons

Extremely boring work, not a lot of opportunity afterwards, no real sense of accomplishment. Pay is only OK, and fringe benefits are minimal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More budget for snacks, we run out too quickly. Initiate some kind of 401k/matching plan. Develop a clear promotion system with formal reviews.

    Too focused with the short term and not the long term.

    I have been working at LeadQual full-time

    Pros

    People are young and fun to work with. Occasional fun company trips. People are generally very open and helpful. Good place to get your foot in the door.

    Cons

    No 401K, low salary, no stock option, company seems to be out of touch with what Bay Area standards in a company are, boring work, mediocre benefits, lack of real management, low morale due to all of the above, no real rewards/compensation system in place which leads to no real motivation to work beyond the bare minimum, low retention rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your analysts and their complaints. Take note of how other Bay Area companies treat their employees and follow suit.
