    Great learning experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsOwners and front office was strong.

    ConsDrama filled soap opera , sad - nobody cares what you did on Saturday night - how well do you perform job duties?

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on what earns the company money - improve processes support managers- Lay off the drama.

    Growing company and chance to learn a lot of skills, but not enough pay and not a long term job to have

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsStartup feel, flexible and growing, work-life balance is good

    Conspay is low, work gets intense sometimes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOverall, if the pay were higher and there were more incentives to stay long term, then this would be a company that people would invest many more years into

    It was a very fun place to work!!!

    Internet Response Specialist (Former Employee) Stratford, CT

    ProsFlexible work hours; if you need help or have any questions, there's always someone around to ask; if you're someone who likes to work alone, as opposed to with a team or partner, this is the job for you!

    ConsThe amount of phone calls that you are asked to make per day are completely unreasonable!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementNew employees should be given more time to increase the amount of calls they are able to make.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great learning opportunity!

    Online Marketing Analyst (Former Employee) Stratford, CT

    ProsAlong with friendly coworkers, the atmosphere is very positive and the location was easy on and off from the highway

    ConsIt does involve repetitive tasks and phone calls which get real old quickly but if you set goals and keep at it, you will survive

    Evolving company - Stay tuned for recent reviews

    Online Marketing Analyst (Current Employee) Emeryville, CA

    ProsAs most people said, you get good work-life balance (sometimes you do have to stay late) and you get a lot of responsibility. Pay is not top tier but very fair and strong performance is rewarded. Initial pay was a little low, but after a year, the pay does bump up (after proving ROI in a way :P). The company is maturing quickly and is balancing start-up agility with corporate best practices. Management does take into account feedback and it's become a better place to work - formal review cycle and career track, biweekly training sessions with lunch, and snacks are refilled more often :)

    High level of competence definitely pulls people up to do better and the expectation to continue to optimize and help out your client teams can serve as the training grounds to build an incredible foundation in paid search.

    ConsBenefits could be better - the company contribution as well as the provider. Because Leadqual has a CT provider for insurance, it's harder for people in Emeryville to find people who take our insurance.

    Formal yearly review also incorporates raises so there are no raises off cycle (which would be luxury). There are bonuses though that are sprinkled here and there. Those are pretty sweet.

    Could hire more people, but I heard that's something they're working on.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to reward the performers, both verbally and financially. Moving in the right direction in terms of expectations and training.

    Decent company, expected to make 200 calls a day

    Internet Response Expert (Former Employee) Stratford, CT

    Prosbetter pay than retail, managers are nice/helpful, able to work overtime/weekends if you want

    ConsOnly $12/hr, sitting in front of a computer for 8 hrs straight, expected to make 200+ phone calls a day on behalf of insurance companies and universities

    Advice to Senior Managementincrease pay or allow for more breaks... the amount of calls that need to made are exhausting for 8 hrs straight, burns your eyes

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good first job!

    Analyst (Current Employee) Emeryville, CA

    ProsYou learn a lot right out of the gate with lots of responsibility. Very quickly you are relied upon to do the work yourself with not a ton of guidance (which I like). Others may find that a difficult environment.

    ConsWork can get repetitive, but I do have a few different clients so that helps. As I said above, not a lot of training, however, they just started a more formal training program.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more in training.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great stepping stone, but that is it.

    Intern Front End Developer (Former Employee) Emeryville, CA

    ProsA laid back place to work. Great co-workers.

    ConsNot much in creative or design work. More of a marketing chop shop, where the employees are paid poorly and expected to provide top level SEO. Emphasis is on making money and not much in creativity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employees well and take more chances with design that could pay exponentially in the future.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Boring but pays the bills

    Online Marketing Analyst (Current Employee) Emeryville, CA

    ProsGood hours (40-45 max), you get to sit in a cushy chair (if you like that), and a VERY fun group of young people. Also, free snacks, bagel Fridays, a foosball table, and video games for breaks.

    If you do have to work late, you get a free $10 dinner.

    Some employees do end up at Google, but they're still in search engine marketing-related jobs.

    ConsExtremely boring work, not a lot of opportunity afterwards, no real sense of accomplishment. Pay is only OK, and fringe benefits are minimal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore budget for snacks, we run out too quickly. Initiate some kind of 401k/matching plan. Develop a clear promotion system with formal reviews.

    Too focused with the short term and not the long term.

    Online Marketing Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsPeople are young and fun to work with. Occasional fun company trips. People are generally very open and helpful. Good place to get your foot in the door.

    ConsNo 401K, low salary, no stock option, company seems to be out of touch with what Bay Area standards in a company are, boring work, mediocre benefits, lack of real management, low morale due to all of the above, no real rewards/compensation system in place which leads to no real motivation to work beyond the bare minimum, low retention rate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your analysts and their complaints. Take note of how other Bay Area companies treat their employees and follow suit.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
