    Great Place to Work

    Director, Marketing (Current Employee)

    ProsXactly takes its mission to heart: Inspiring performance in ways that treat professionals like people first. The company has a fantastic SaaS offering, great management, and work-life flexibility. The CEO is an incredible visionary, and very personal.

    ConsThe pace is fast, since it's a startup environment. And the company is definitely in the process of refining and formalizing some of its processes --- but that's expected.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A little company trying (but not succeeding) at being a major player

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Great people working together to sell a great product

    Account Executive (Current Employee) Denver, CO

    ProsCompanies core values of Customer Focus, Accountability, Respect and Excellence are lived every day at all levels of the company. Great energy in the Denver office. High expectations for all, and low performers don't last long. Top performers move up in the organization

    ConsNone that I can come up with now. For the sales people, being comfortable and effective in prospecting/cold calling is essential for success. The company is very number focused.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up. The company is growing a lot but hasn't lost focus on it's core values.

    Some of the best people I've worked around, solid culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

    Pros- Great peer group at multiple levels of the company.
    - Everybody wants to work together, not a lot of egos which helps achieve goals faster.
    - Driven leadership, I get to be myself and that helps me to perform.
    - It's a fun place, and they continue to hire culture positives.

    ConsSome departments are challenging to work with, and focus on the present sometimes overrides a better future/vision, as well as sets back progress.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSee cons, double down on critical resources.

    Good company, good company for sales....territory inequity

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood market and position in it. Many new competitors are showing up and losing to Xactly which is a sign of the market demand and strength.

    ConsPlease see advice to mgmt

    Advice to Senior ManagementEven out the territories. I can only hear "quota is the great equalizer" so many times without any action or meaningful quota adjustment. The reality is that the bay area is contains the greatest population of tech companies, our hottest vertical, and the reps there are ALWAYS on top. Don't dismiss it, for the smaller teams go back and look at reps of the quarter.

    Thanks for the feedback. Quota setting is always a difficult problem. We will be using our own software soon to manage quotas!

    Fast moving, but cliquish company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsStill has a small company, entrepreneurial feel. You can get things done fast.
    Positive working environment.
    Very interested in employee feedback.
    Good place to develop a sales career since they tend to deal with smaller and mid-sized companies.

    ConsCliquish environment. You'll do well if you like networking in an alcohol-fueled, frat-guy type environment. People in the right group tend to get promoted quickly.
