    I worked at Vocalocity full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    AMAZING company culture, great training, supportive management

    Cons

    150-200 cold calls a day and I mean COLD calls.
    Location has SO much traffic it's unreal. I lived 6 miles away and commuted 2+ hours a day from Decatur.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chill out on metrics. Its about quality not quantity. 70-100 calls a day is still high activity.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment and young culture.

    Strong customer service and focus on providing a valuable product to customers, customer education and fair pricing.

    Cons

    Occasional power struggle between departments to own specific functions/decision making needs of the business.

    Working remotely became a bit taboo towards the end of my time at the company, which to me seems counterintuitive to a virtual technology provider.

    The tension between executives was also regularly noticeable and contagious.

    Great job when I first started, then with new management, went downhill.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, matching 401k, fun people to work with, relaxed dress code, great opportunity to make a lot of money in sales.

    Cons

    Big brother atmosphere, monitor everything you do - like if you get up from your desk for any reason, call center type atmosphere, raise quota every few months, hierarchy ranking, you are competing agains your coworkers, cut throat, no transparency between upper management and sales team, managers will be young with no former management experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to make the sales department like the Boiler Room.

    Pros

    work with a lot of great people, achievable goals, good incentives to get the job done, rewards and aknowledgement for a job well done, casual work environment while still working hard, fun work related events, can work from home on wednesdays

    Cons

    Would love to meet other people in the company and take a tour of the Customer Service side. It would be nice to put faces to the names of a lot of the other people we work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management (especially my managers) are doing a good job. I know my manager looks out for our well being, checks on us regularly, doesnt mind answering questions even if dumb, and is not intimidating to talk to.

    Pros

    Real agile shop, focus on quality instead of deadlines, smart people. Developers are treated well: company pays for conferences, training.

    Cons

    Low annual raises. executive management brings their own people while laying off current well performing employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on core product. do not get bog down in small pet projects like Salesforce.

    Pros

    Decent monthly spiffs sometimes. Decent.

    Cons

    Where do I start. Lies telling people the timeframe they are going to get promoted. Absolutely no autonomy to the point where you almost can't leave your desk. Takes advantage of new graduates. Don't do it.
