Learn SEO & move on. Avoid if you can.

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Carlsbad, CA

I worked at SEO Inc. full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good place to learn. Very loyal employees (a handful have stuck around for 5-10 years). Plenty of freedom due to lack of management or structure. Good vacation/PTO benefits.

Cons

Low pay for industry standards. Poor health/401k benefit packages. Little room for advancement. No performance feedback/guidance, or employee reviews. High employee turn-over and very under-staffed. No set structure/processes or training of new team-members. Poor allocation of budget. "Management" is blame-oriented rather than solution-oriented. Owner sends extremely racist & sexist emails to the entire company, cusses loudly and frequently, and talks very poorly about clients and former employees. The HR department consists of the owner's ex-wife and a family friend.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take ownership and responsibility of your company. Accept that SEO has changed since you've been away from the company; learn what it is today. Update your services and make sure your sales team understands what they are. Recognize the loyalty of the talent you have. Reward them. Create realistic incentives and follow through with them. Put your team first. Quality work and satisfied clients will follow, as will profits. Create a positive work environment.

    Pros

    The employees are extremely loyal although it's hard to understand why.

    Cons

    Inappropriate Emails sent company wide from CEO (some being highly offensive and racist, i.e. a joke about a Pakistani individual and terrorism)
    Lack of compensation, bonuses, and incentives.
    There are no company/team building events to keep everyone team focused and motivated.
    There is a lack of training and methodology, everyone does things how they best feel it should be done without guidance.
    The environment is very mundane, employees have cleaned the lobby themselves, in the past, the computers are outdated, the software is outdated, the office needs a spruce up from ceiling to floor literally (the ceiling tiles were falling, the lighting doesn't work completely through the building, the floor has stains on the carpet), the conference room is not inviting for client meetings (lack of refreshments for guests). Lack of supplies for employees, NO paper, NO pens, NO notebooks, NO coffee (even found an invoice from the coffee service provider that stated invoice was PAST DUE).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees!!! Stop falsely praising the CEO and tell him STRAIGHT up how it really is. The turnover rate within the company is extremely high because the pay is terrible, there is a lack of incentive, there is no strong upper management/role with the CEO, CFO and COO. Let your employees know how the company is doing, where the finances are, provide stock options (if so facto the company is improving), reward your employees, provide a boost in morale.
