-Great coworkers around you (you get what you give) -Benefits -Nice office environment -Flexibility -Decent Pay
I just spent 30 minutes reading these negative reviews in awe at some people’s cons and just petty responses. Some of which simply uncalled for. Your commute is long? You don’t like what the CEO... wears? You don’t like that you have to work or be in the office? I’m a little baffled here, because last I checked, you signed up for you commute, it shouldn’t matter what anyone wears to your job, and lastly - oh wow you have to work? People complain about no team outings, but then don’t show up when we have them. ha! There are definitely some negatives to working at Channeladvisor, but there are negatives to any job, in any state, in any category. I think we need some additional resources undoubtedly. It also sounds like we need to work on morale. Here’s the thing, the grass isn’t always greener.
Advice to Management
Account management/CSMs need to stop acting like sales is out to get them. Sales is the reason they have a job. Half the company needs to just step up, get off their high horse and stop being lazy... at times. And we need stronger management to push this. Sales development is such a crucial part of driving new business and there is a non existent department with no management and no seeming desire to grow in this department. They need more training, they don’t need to get paid the same as people closing deals. Without an SDR department, you’re just taking time away from AEs closing deals to just prospect all day. I think we need to listen to the market more than we listen to customers, this is an idea we should have adopted years ago. Overall, I like ChannelAdvisor and would recommend it. I’m excited to see what 2020 brings.

Good work-life balance Overtime opportunities Excellent team and leadership Company outings and events Relaxes and friendly work environment Competent co-workers
Relatively lower pay compared to other similar jobs, off-set by good benefits. Company has been acquired a few times throughout the years, leading to mass layoffs, though I have not been affected... personally by these.
Advice to Management
Keep up the excellent work!
