    Do not work at the Spokane sales cubicle farm, you're just another expendable resource that is used and lied to.

    Pros

    The sales plan seems lucrative, and is promoted as an easy way to make the big bucks, but in reality, they will try to find every way to not give you a commission or create a devaluation your performance.

    Cons

    Long-hours, few breaks and micro-managing of every aspect of your job, performance and career at Web.com

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I spoke with management and expounded upon my negative experience, there was no concern or desire for change in the sales atmosphere or how they treat their employees.

    Pros

    They give you a lot of exposure as an intern and allow you to get hands on experience within the company with various different projects.

    Cons

    Couldn't say anything bad about this company, all of my bosses genuinely cared about my daily activities and assisted me as I needed.

    Pros

    No micromanagement. If they leave you alone to do your job, you know you're doing a good job. No drama, either -- everyone in my department works together for the good of the group and the company.

    Cons

    A few quibbles here and there, but heaven compared to anyplace else I've worked in my life.

    Just keep on doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Nice perks like xmas party, Jaguar tickets once a year. Benefits were affordable until earlier this year.

    Cons

    Web.com is incredibly poorly managed. Products are overpriced and customer service is intentionally terrible. The company's reputation is trash both with workers and customers (check the BBB website).

    Within the company, pay is incredibly poor and management is apathetic. David Brown himself will tell you at your employee orientation that he will promote people just because they have been here for years. There is an older review posted here that mentions how the Pennsylvania office is an illustration of the Peter principle. So is the Jax office. The only people promoted to management are those with little qualifications and education so they can be had cheaply. For many of these people this is the best job they have ever had and they will do anything to hide their ineptitude and lack of knowledge. Many times I have seen employees try to get a better job, but you have to have the approval of your department manager and they will try to block you from moving ahead of them or leaving their department if you do good work, so you cant move up.

    The HR department in the company doesnt function as a normal HR dept would. They are they to punish employees. Hourly people get taken there for being one minute late.

    Also the review before mine talking about "the job ive been waiting for all my life" is obviously either fake or posted by someone with little to no education who is accustomed to working in retail or restaurants. That job is paid well under industry standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. David Brown has been confronted directly by employees about how his operation is a sweatshop. He just says he will look into it and then runs back to the 4th floor

    Pros

    Worked there for 11 years. They worked with me on some hard times in my life, I don't have now.

    Cons

    They are making leaps and bounds from the looks of it. But, not giving raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    David Brown and Joel Williamson are good people. But, please look out for your employees because it's hard times now. As I'm sure you know. Oh, Joel this is Don Roberts look through your emails and think about hiring me again. Lol

    Pros

    Office is in a decent building. Lots of great places to eat near the office.

    Cons

    These guys are professional serial manipulators and abusers. They get you in the door with the hopes of a good career and then suck all the life out of you by working you to death. When your stressed out and can't perform your out with the rest of the trash. There's always openings here and they are always interviewing because of this. Pay is very low in comparison to industry standards. Work level is off the charts. One word to describe this company. Sweatshop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate your business model so you don't have to take advantage of your employees in order to turn a profit.
