-Startup growing pains, limited space, internet problems, phone issues, etc. but they are quick to resolve them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Keep doing what you are doing. It's working. Add some leadership positions within the sales force as it continues to grow. Promote inside sales talent as we venture harder into enterprise clients. You have hired some tremendous sales talent.

    Pros

    Everyone at this company is friendly, motivated, and wants to make a difference. No matter what they're doing, they're always ready to chat you up during our daily lunches, give you a high five as you walk through the sales floor, tell you a joke awkwardly in the hallway, or just ask how you're doing genuinely when they see you.

    This is also a place where you can make of it what you want-Soldsie launches careers whether you want to break into sales, lead a new product, have a first grab at a corporate opportunity, or create a culture that matters. Soldsie is a place for people with initiative, passion, and perseverence and people who really want to see a company grow-people who want to see what it takes to build a startup and a product

    Pros include
    -equity stake
    -daily lunches
    -friendly people
    -dogs in the office
    -present and open CEO
    -your voice is heard
    -benefits (medical, dental, vision)
    -opportunity to be autonomous and take initiative
    -opportunity to build a new product in a new indsutry
    -career launcher for those trying to break into tech
    -a place that respects your work
    -we work in a team environment-everyone sits with everyone-no hiearchy

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets warm in our office given the building--but we have desk fans to help. Also, sometimes a challenge of a startup is change---but that's good Everyone here is entrepreneurial and a startup is the embodiment of change and it's great to be in a place where you will be challenged to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Soldsie is already transparent and wants to hear the voice of the employees and tries to give employees the opportunity to make sure they feel like they are appreciated from Soldsie offsites, to happy hours, to equity to daily lunches...but perhaps more recognition would be nice...and a chance to take in the wins..before being pushed again

    However, startups move fast so it's always a balance and a challenge

    I worked at Soldsie full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Dogs at work (How fun! They are cute! Stress reduction!)
    Free lunches and snacks-you can eat all 3 meals at work if you like
    Sit-stand desks and whatever equipment you need to work
    A limited number of genuine, hard-working and intelligent colleagues

    Cons

    Dogs at work--Barking dogs while you try to work with accounts on the phone day in and day out is frustrating and felt very unprofessional.

    The sales strategy at this company sets employees up for failure. The product is oversold and not able to deliver value to all clients. The blame for not delivering value is placed on clients. If the company focused on product and service over sales, I believe it would be more successful.

    Leadership at the company and department level is sorely lacking. I did not feel confident that sound business decisions were made (hunch validated by significant layoffs in fall 2014). It seems like all levels of management are involved in this business to eke out something of value for their personal or professional life. There did not seem to be an authentic desire to work with a diverse team and build something great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with yourself, your employees and your clients.
