Pros

No boiler room sales style environment. I feel a sense of pride, accomplishment and excitement about selling Turnitin and iThenticate. Great work-life balance and great benefits.
Excited about the company future growth.

Cons

There are always challenges in any work environment especially in a quota driven Inside Sales Account Manager position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep exploring about adding new products to the iParadigms offerings in the future.I am proud to see the evolution of Turnitin over the years.

    I have been working at iParadigms full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Coworkers are smart and have great sense of humor. Close to bart. Great benefits/bonus. On site massage.

    Cons

    Old/brittle technology. Poor communications. Promotion path is slow and poorly defined. Constant process change decreases velocity. Little professional development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take ownership and make hard decisions. Invest in manager people skills -currently there is no training. Stop building new stuff and make the current system robust and reliable.

    I worked at iParadigms full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Soda, candy, fruit snacks. Dress how you want. Good medical and dental (and vision). Unlimited sick time. Friendly support and marketing staff.

    Cons

    I left the sales department because it was too stressful. People were put on action plans for asking for help or asking questions about strategy of inexperienced managers. You leave with the same skills you brought with you. The managers are inexperienced and dont develp you. There is a lot of gossip and managers undermine each other. They have secret meetings all the time and you dont know who will be fired next. They even talk about other departments disrespectfully. The sales team is treated like kids and expect to be insulted. If you have ideas they dont care. If you have a bad territory they dont care. When there is a problem the managers will act surprised because they arent paying attention to when the people complain and ask for help. Human Resources doesnt care much either. They make promises about growth and promotions but never keep them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management. The managers now control and intimidate. They are too close to each other and are relaxed and dont try. New faces will lessen the fear and stress and help people grow.
