Former Contractor - Data Entry

I worked at Paylocity

Pros

Has a lot of OT available

Cons

Training was horrible. They need to work on that.

Current Employee - Growth Account Executive

I have been working at Sprout Social full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

We sell a highly relevant solution in light of current world events. Our customers need our solution more than ever and we continue to build better products for them to leverage. That means, as a... salesperson, you'll have the chance to sell solutions that customers LOVE. Additionally, I've never worked around a more happy and hard-working group of people. Sprout is all it's cracked up to be and more.

Cons

Because hiring is so competitive at Sprout, you might have to take a step back on your expectations for your title and role. The business runs efficiently and it can make it feel like it's hard to... make a big impact.

Advice to Management

Continue to empower team members with new opportunities that will both challenge them and allow them to try new things!
