Pros

Great room for growth, awesome executive team, young and fun work environment. They give you all the tools to succeed, and a great path for one to grow as a work professional.

Cons

Can sometime be stressful if you are on the sales part. There are high teams which are fantastic, but the low times can be stressful...but this goes with any sales job.

    Pros

    Working at WeddingWire was a privilege. Knowledgeable team-members and a positive collaborative atmosphere means opportunities to learn, hone your skills and push yourself. Self-motivated personnel will not go unnoticed.

    WeddingWire is also a community; there are many in-house social activities, providing time to get to know your co-workers outside the job. Employees have the benefit of unlimited vacation, being able to schedule longer stints off than is possible at many other companies.

    Consideration for promotion occurs yearly and potentially quicker if you excel. Managers are open to discussion about your ideas, concerns and are genuinely concerned for your well-being.

    Cons

    WeddingWire has retained the volatility of a start-up and is experiencing growing pains. Certain key team members have need to assume intense amounts of responsibility as a stop-gap. This can lead to much pressure and stress for those individuals and their teams. Growth has occurred almost too quickly and the company is working hard to adjust.

    Compensation is about average for people in marketing/software development. There isn't 401k matching. Though there's opportunity to grow, its also possible to get pigeon-holed if you're not assertive. There's a 'Work hard, party hard' atmosphere about the company that will appeal to some and not others.

    Pros

    The company is dominated by a sales culture followed by a marketing culture followed by a tech culture. Think beer pong, video games or wine and cheese every other day.

    Sales, as can be expected, is Darwinian. You don't make the numbers you're out. They do provide training. The territory assigned is sometimes total luck of the draw.

    The company is open enough that you get to collaborate with different groups and learn different facets of the business. The main product being so highly visible and profitable means your work gets out in front of a large audience everyday.

    Cons

    Lots of Kool-Aid being ladled. Upper management are good talkers. But not so great with the walk. The focus is on squeezing revenue and making (bad) deals rather than doing the hard work of making good product. The best talent walks. If you are a good role player and don't mind being hitched to a wayward wagon, then WW is your place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ditch the dead weight. Regain the hunger and perspective of the early days.
