Former Employee - Sales Executive in Beltsville, MD

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

Pros

Incredible company culture, great work environment, younger energetic demographic, some great managers, and very accessible C-Level executives

Cons

some very marginal managers, small business focus, company built on a tremendous PR product but decided to switch gears and focus on a more transactional product with a small market target.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus more time and money in the stronger more functional product that built the company, and less in trying to target a larger (quantity) market with much lower returns.

    I have been working at Vocus full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The atmosphere is super relaxed- jeans everyday, workout at the gym or attend kickboxing/boot camp/yoga class to clear your mind during the day, take a break in the spa or arcade. Food trucks and other food companies come everyday so that you don't have to drive across MD to find the perfect lunch. Awesome benefits. Great incentives and rewards for high performance. Management and top execs are great resources and know how to motivate employees to perform better. I have also learned a lot about Marketing and PR and have helped my clients better their efforts to make them stronger against their competitors. Needless to say- Vocus is all around a great place to work!

    Cons

    Since we are growing so much, parking is hard to find sometimes- you just have to get to work early!

    Good environment, but not challenging at all

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

    Pros

    Great Office in Beltsville. Great benefits and great gym. Work from 8:45 to 5:30. Laid back feel, but there are high strung managers.

    Cons

    The environment breeds lazy sales people. You are only a number. Watched people get fired left and right. Training was not cohesive. only 10% of the sales force actually makes quota

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please invest in training more
