Former Employee - Major Account Executive in Glen Allen, VA

I worked at Snagajob

Pros

Great people
Decent suite of products
Decent work/life balance
Decent compensation
Fun extracurricular activities
Generous vacation package
Nice location
Nice facilities

Cons

Middle management is so horribly ineffective, inexperienced, and biased it is not even funny.
Middle management does not stick up for their teams-them first, then team second.
Typically hire too quickly, then realize they don't have the market or territories to support those hires.Leads to layoffs.

    I worked at Snagajob full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -very collaborative work envirornment; people want to work together for the greater good of the company; live out our values
    -transparent and approachable senior leaders; want feedback and respond to it
    -service oriented-for our customers, members and community
    -ability to create and make something your own; get in on the ground floor
    -willingness to try new ways and not always do something b/c that's the way it's always been
    -passionate group of Snaggers

    Cons

    -sometimes move a bit too fast on things; on the flip side when a mistake is made, it's owned and corrected (part of a high growth company though)

    I worked at Snagajob full-time

    Pros

    - Decent Benefits
    - Could be good opportunity

    Cons

    - I understand moving fast and breaking glass along the way (Good for a company), but this company is breaking glass in many directions and changing their vision and strategy multiple times in a short period of time causing internal confusion. Inexperienced middle management who cannot take the company to the next level. Experience is just not there.
    - Does not let the sales team breath - Its healthy to do that
    - Marketing - Need bigger marketing initiatives to hit targeted goals (Fortune level goals with 5-10 employee marketing budget). You have the money, use it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Research your future opportunities before you move on them. Transitioning to a software company is not easy. Make sure you have your ducks in a row.
    - Brand your company. Their are many competitors in your space that have been doing it for much longer. Don't assume they are going to come to you.
