Good technology with bad management and support

Market Specialist (Former Employee)
Tempe, AZ

ProsBetter than average salaries and benefits with a casual working environment

ConsExtremely under qualified executive management with very short sighted thinking. Very high attrition rate for all especially within their management teams. The company looses most clients after their contracts expire and most do not return. The culture is to continue to drive new sales ti back fill attrition though the do not track attrition. Most the execs work in San Francisco while the company is headquartered in Arizona creating a large disconnect between management and operations.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay yourselves less. A company grossing less than 200 million a year does not need to be paying the executive team 10% of those revenues. Focus on your clients and not the street. They year of the customer should not be just a one year sales theme...it should be your mission statement.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
