long but fruitful, hard but fun

Senior Director (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

Prossmart, largely normal, nice people working very hard on challenging problems
great customer focus from the top down
not afraid of change -- you should be very comfortable with change if you work there
wonderful office locations
very focused now on trying to hire and retain the best people
philanthropic culture -- the 1/1/1 model

ConsMarc runs the show -- everything else is secondary
after Marc, the largest customers make the rules -- SMBs lose
has become much more political over time -- executives have their own agendas vs. doing what's right for the company
sometimes the constant change can be frustrating and draining

Advice to Senior Managementbe honest with employees, always
keep the bar high -- never start hiring warm bodies
carve off sustained investment in time and resources for long-term incremental wins vs. fast surprise shifts for short-term closes / ROI

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

What you see when you get hired in terms… Advice to Senior Management: Get your ego out of the way and get rid of your middle management. Your technical managers loose their technical edge very quickly and… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
