I have been working at Onvia full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good compensation, good benefits, collaborative work environment, great corporate culture.

Cons

Lead generation could be better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The only place to improve I can think of is taking a look at compensation for acquisition and account management. While it is not bad, compensation needs to be more competitive with the market to ensure retention of top performing reps.

    I worked at Onvia full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some good folks like most places. Great downtown location.

    Cons

    Churn and burn sales style. 200+ % turnover in a two year period. Overly granular and micro-managing sales environment. Exit strategy seems to be to sell the company-CEO is NOT a sales guy. Lots of bodies left in their wake-not a friendly environment-lots of falsehoods. board is controlled by a former Diebold executive who is simply fleecing the company as much as possible . Former founders jumped oout with their golden parachutes and what is left is a shadow financially. Work hard-your reward will be that you are used and abused.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Makes no difference-board controls all decisions and management goes along. Place some appropriate value on the humanity that lines your pockets. But then again-why waste my time trying to advise you-you know what your end game is already and it is not your people.

    I worked at Onvia full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Room to make generous commission, if you can figure out how to differentiate the product from superior or more cost effective services. Sometimes felt overly bro-ish, bro.

    Cons

    Lack of innovation, commodity market, better, more expensive competitors, significantly cheaper competitors that can sometimes match up to core offering

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Differentiate the product in the market with a focus on development and innovation - utilize more experienced tech talent instead of outsourcing development

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
