    Pros

    Starting at an entry level position may be more worthwhile than it seems. Job postings are regular and if you work harder and faster than average you will get rewarded.

    Some supervisors are very good at coaching and mentoring.

    Growing company.

    Cons

    No annual raises.
    Stock Options are given but has not been performing well.
    Salary employees often work brutal hours without recognition.
    Some positions have a glass ceiling with no room for advancement.
    Goals are often given that cannot be achieved by the average person.
    Very political at a salary level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more approachable.
    Stay current with industry pay.
    Consider annual raises.
    Consider reworking the employee review and goal setting process.
    Give all employees a way to rate their supervisor.
    Give employees discount access to services and products offered rather than forcing them to buy at retail price.

    Pros

    They have a great training program. You are flown to Jacksonville, wined and dined and taken very good care of.

    Cons

    Management was not supportive in closing deals. They never went the extra mile to create awareness about their company or product. With the right manager in the area, it would be a successful product to sell!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get involved. Upper management needs to drive the regional managers to help support their sales staff in Amy way necessary!

    Pros

    Money is not bad for what you do, could be better, but It also depends on the local management that you end up with, it could not be worth it. Products are decent

    Cons

    Good ol boy system in order to get into management no matter how well you do. Almost impossible to get an answer half of the time. Getting to big for themselves. Not a whole lot of benefit to want to stay for good reps. Benefits are terrible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is not a one size fits all world. Take into account what the people in the field are saying

    Pros

    Association with PGA golf, Christmas party, work environment, ability to gain experience.

    Cons

    No raises, disconnected upper management, need to switch departments to get more money. It is not always easy to get noticed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people what they're worth, and they will stick around.

    Avoid Web.com's RenovationExperts Division

    I worked at Web.com Inc full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The CEO tries to emphasis a positive atmosphere with plenty of discounts to local minor league games, parks, etc. Most co-workers are respectful and responsible. The "teamwork" mentality is really upheld.

    Cons

    The RenovationExperts sales team often lied/avoided the whole truth in order to boost numbers and get their commission. While I think the website built by Web.com is great for small businesses, I ultimately did not believe in the leads packaged in with the sale by the RenEx department. While I was hired on to manage marketing/graphic design assignments, I was also given the responsibility of handling my own set of clients with no additional pay. I don't mind customer service work, but the clientele were often unbearable. I was told to "shake it off" and "just send them to collections" when (clearly scammed) folks would flood my phone/email with death threats/slurs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The sales team is often rewarded for deplorable behavior. This needs to be corrected. Additionally, there is no focus on maintaining customers in the long-term. Web.com needs to pay more attention to its other divisions and their serious lack of funding.

    Pros

    There is a great team atmosphere within specific departments

    Cons

    Other members of the company (at your same level) can negatively impact your pay rate because of the quality control setup

    Pros

    PTO is good. Getting stock when it was at $4 was great, not so much anymore. Some coworkers are great, others are burned out, stupid, or lazy.

    Cons

    No raises in years and years of working here. No advanced training, if anything, you get dumber working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try paying people a livable wage. Try actually being honest with the customers and reading reviews about your lame company online. Stock is tumbling!

    Pros

    The general work environment is pleasant enough... typical corporate environment. The Christmas party is very nice.

    Cons

    Very low pay. And there are never, ever any raises. I know people that have worked there for years and are still making the same as when they started. I also do not think the product that is delivered to the customer is of any quality... in fact, I hate to say it, but it's really bad. I would totally approve positively of the CEO, as he is a very nice person, but I am sure that he is aware that they are delivering garbage to customers that are paying a very good deal of money for cheap, inefficient sites. Sorry, but that it the truth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push for pay raises when people deserve them. And for the customers, quantity should never come before quality.
