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

    Pros

    The people are really smart and driven
    The culture is fun and collaborative
    The office space is incredible
    After some recent changes, there's a really strong executive team in place that have a good vision for where Snagajob needs to go
    Even after being around for 13+ years, there's still a start-up vibe
    Get to be a part of making a serious impact in people's lives (connecting hourly workers with employers)

    Cons

    There's been a lack of focus in the past, but new leadership has seemed to improve that

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on what's best for the job seekers and employers

    I worked at Snagajob full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -very collaborative work envirornment; people want to work together for the greater good of the company; live out our values
    -transparent and approachable senior leaders; want feedback and respond to it
    -service oriented-for our customers, members and community
    -ability to create and make something your own; get in on the ground floor
    -willingness to try new ways and not always do something b/c that's the way it's always been
    -passionate group of Snaggers

    Cons

    -sometimes move a bit too fast on things; on the flip side when a mistake is made, it's owned and corrected (part of a high growth company though)

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

    Pros

    Flexible; work hard play hard environment. Great training and collaborative atmosphere. Even though company is 14 years old, it has a start up feel and mentality.

    Cons

    Brands and the book of business that is designated to reps can easily help make or break your quota. Some reps will be prospecting all day and generate a small dollar amount while others don't prospect and earn 2X or 3X of Presidents Club numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to develop a career plan for employees while sustaining the culture and environment of this small, start up type of business.

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

    Pros

    You've got some great co-workers
    The location in Innsbrook is nice and close to other office buildings, along with the pavilion.
    Culture is very positive
    A trend to move towards the latest in technology
    A focus on revenue to achieve an IPO

    Cons

    Not everyone "works hard", and sometimes they aren't always identified
    Growth opportunities can be hard to come by
    Management isn't always on the same page about things
    Transparency is not what it should be in certain instances

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dive a little more into making sure employees are happy with career growth and overall status of company.

    I worked at Snagajob full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I worked with some really great people who were super passionate about making a positive impact in the lives of hourly workers and job seekers. Some of them are still there, but many left.

    The mission was noble, the potential was often exhilarating, but the results and reality never measured up. It wasn't our intention, but it became a case of focusing on the journey and not so much the destination.

    Cons

    Accountability was a core value but was very rarely demonstrated outside of sales quotas. The stopping and starting and constant changes in direction without anything to show were dizzying and frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to build an atmosphere of trust and collaboration, then it starts with the relationship between leadership and everyone else. Also, you need to commit to jettisoning the few egos and toxic personalities - even if they're brilliant with tons of upside - that muck up the works for everyone else.

    I worked at Snagajob full-time

    Pros

    - Decent Benefits
    - Could be good opportunity

    Cons

    - I understand moving fast and breaking glass along the way (Good for a company), but this company is breaking glass in many directions and changing their vision and strategy multiple times in a short period of time causing internal confusion. Inexperienced middle management who cannot take the company to the next level. Experience is just not there.
    - Does not let the sales team breath - Its healthy to do that
    - Marketing - Need bigger marketing initiatives to hit targeted goals (Fortune level goals with 5-10 employee marketing budget). You have the money, use it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Research your future opportunities before you move on them. Transitioning to a software company is not easy. Make sure you have your ducks in a row.
    - Brand your company. Their are many competitors in your space that have been doing it for much longer. Don't assume they are going to come to you.
