    I have been working at WeddingWire full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a fairly young company that filled with people who are fairly competitive and energetic. People are passionate about the products they create and they have a general ambition to really get things done here. Overall, the people that join WeddingWire are good natured and fun (and they enjoy having fun in a unapologetic, excessive way). Management has created an amazing atmosphere to really create an environment that people would like to come to work.
    While the benefits may not match that of a fortune 500 company, it is fairly unique in its own way (250 treat-yo-self bucks every year for instance).
    The best way I can describe WeddingWire is like this. When I used to work at a large company, Friday after 4 PM, there would be no one in the office, at WeddingWire, there's a party going on and everyone is relaxing with a drink after a long week.

    Cons

    I'm not a fan of the location because it's far away from the highway, but other than that, nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand that we're growing, and that's going to mean that we're going to be heading towards more overhead and more middle-management, let's hold that off as long as we can.

    Pros

    The company has amazing energy, and the environment is awesome. The compensation is extremely good, and benefits are wonderful. This is a great, growing company with many opportunities. The culture in this company is by far the best I have come across, and the non-traditional approach really has made me love where I work. You must look into WeddingWire for your career!

    Cons

    Sales are sales, and this has nothing to do with the company. Just remember what being in sales is all about and this will be the best sales job you could ask for.

    Pros

    WeddingWire is a dream to work for!! I could not be happier here. The office culture is incredible, it is a fun close knit community where everyone is very supportive of one another. It is a very young company so the social aspect is perfect. The benefits are unheard of and the compensation is very generous. Catered breakfast every morning, frequently catered lunches, money allotted towards transportation, personal enrichment, and unlimited vacation!

    Cons

    No cons! I brag about WeddingWire to everyone, it truly is an incredible company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    WeddingWire is an amazing company. Lot's of fast growth and they are the industry leaders. Also fantastic culture and fun environment.

    Cons

    there is a limit to how far you can excel here- it's more of a job than a careet, but the company seems to know that. Goals are not always fairly assigned, but such is the opinion in most sales roles.

    I worked at WeddingWire as an intern

    Pros

    I had a wonderful internship with WeddingWire-- they were thorough, inclusive, helped me grow in understanding of the tech industry and WeddingWire specifically. Great, valuable products and incredible people.

    Cons

    Climate is fast-paced, demanding, and requires you to jump on board without reservations-- you really have to put any insecurities to rest. Luckily, there's an awesome Sales Development team that is really nurturing and helpful to new employees, and can definitely help you in overcoming any challenges.

    Pros

    Great team environment so job satisfaction is both local (in my team) and company-wide. Very fair compensation and management is quick to respond when we have challenges on pay, work loads, etc.

    Cons

    Some of the jobs don't lead to very long career paths (but there is some good lateral opportunities for some)

    I worked at WeddingWire full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is dominated by a sales culture followed by a marketing culture followed by a tech culture. Think beer pong, video games or wine and cheese every other day.

    Sales, as can be expected, is Darwinian. You don't make the numbers you're out. They do provide training. The territory assigned is sometimes total luck of the draw.

    The company is open enough that you get to collaborate with different groups and learn different facets of the business. The main product being so highly visible and profitable means your work gets out in front of a large audience everyday.

    Cons

    Lots of Kool-Aid being ladled. Upper management are good talkers. But not so great with the walk. The focus is on squeezing revenue and making (bad) deals rather than doing the hard work of making good product. The best talent walks. If you are a good role player and don't mind being hitched to a wayward wagon, then WW is your place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ditch the dead weight. Regain the hunger and perspective of the early days.

    Start-up culture crammed into a rapidly growing industry leader

    I worked at WeddingWire full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Working at WeddingWire was a privilege. Knowledgeable team-members and a positive collaborative atmosphere means opportunities to learn, hone your skills and push yourself. Self-motivated personnel will not go unnoticed.

    WeddingWire is also a community; there are many in-house social activities, providing time to get to know your co-workers outside the job. Employees have the benefit of unlimited vacation, being able to schedule longer stints off than is possible at many other companies.

    Consideration for promotion occurs yearly and potentially quicker if you excel. Managers are open to discussion about your ideas, concerns and are genuinely concerned for your well-being.

    Cons

    WeddingWire has retained the volatility of a start-up and is experiencing growing pains. Certain key team members have need to assume intense amounts of responsibility as a stop-gap. This can lead to much pressure and stress for those individuals and their teams. Growth has occurred almost too quickly and the company is working hard to adjust.

    Compensation is about average for people in marketing/software development. There isn't 401k matching. Though there's opportunity to grow, its also possible to get pigeon-holed if you're not assertive. There's a 'Work hard, party hard' atmosphere about the company that will appeal to some and not others.
