Pros

Made good money with the IPO and ESPP. Company does a great job of hiring straight out of school young people and teaching them sales, marketing etc...

Cons

It's a Young Turk Culture (male dominated) especially in sales. If you are young, male, an ex-jock, you are likely to be accepted - otherwise you will have to put up with a snarky, internally competitive, loud work environment and will be treated with very little acceptance or respect. Each department has it's own sub-culture but the senior management style penetrates them all. Sales quote's are extremely high which of course causes lots of pressure - as in any sales role, however management is indifferent and extremely clique-y.

Advice to Management

I am not sure much can be done.

    Pros

    Initial compensation was very competitive, there were some very good people on my team.

    Cons

    Poor, over-reactive management, performance is tied too strongly to arcane metrics, very difficult to get a raise, and virtually impossible to advance in position or into another department. Marketing people, by and large, are awful as customers. Some employees will "backstab" to advance themselves or their agenda, which is a shame, as there are some really great, quality people that work there also.

    Advice to Management

    More consideration should be shown to all employees.
