What Employees Say
I have been working at SendGrid full-time for more than 3 years
- culture and people are amazing, they challenge you and push you to be the best version of yourself. - decision making process is astounding for a company of our size. Product, finance and... engineering decisions are made in a very data-driven way. - Willing to discuss the hard topics and make the most informed decision. - Benefits are amazing, free lunch everyday is fantastic, i hope we don't lose this. - If you're motivated and willing to work hard, you can be recognized and tasked with more responsibility. I've seen many people grow their careers here and be promoted every year based on their performance and determination.
- typical pains related to integrating with Twilio after the acquisition in Feb of 2019. Most painful of which is the figuring out how we make decisions now as one larger company. (Twilio has less... process / standard way to make decisions, SendGrid has a formalized process). - The general energy of the company is lower now after the Twilio acquisition – still positive but now that we're not a standalone, public company, there appears to be less control over our business (email, email marketing) destiny. - Culture of Twilio, while close to SendGrid's, is definitely different and will take some time to feel part of one
Advice to Management
Keep working to make Twilio better by adopting and incorporating the best processes, people and systems across the two companies. There is a lot to learn from the employees at both companies that,... if implemented, could result in an awesome company.
I worked at Signpost
Jeremy- the Austin office He is legit the best mentor you could ever have, he’s real with you and so sweet and understanding! John sales manager is great!! He is one of the best because again he’s... REAL with you and so genuine and actually cares about you!!! The potential to grow and become top rep is AMAZING i mean the comp plan sells it’s self .. of course if your not a top performing rep or doing the job you won’t make the most money but they give you all the tools to be top rep and make atleast 5k a month and give you so many rewards! Just being there for 2 months i WON a MacBook Air 2019.. it’s crazy any company that cares that much to reward you for doing your job is a good company.
Honestly. There are quirks here and there but it’s a start up .. you get what you put in.. in any job really! I will say that if you are not down for stress and put base pay under cons than sales is... NOT for you.. nobody wants to do sales for base pay.. but if your here to make UNLIMITED amount of money and beat records and get high rewards then join this team!! Anything you put in cons normally.. look at yourself and ask yourself.. is sales for me? Because base pay.. hard sales.. sales tactics.. snacks.. ping pong.. pushy.. money oriented is all characteristics of ANY sales job.. if you look at these reviews and look at the cons there’s a reason why they quit or got fired.. sales was not for them. I however love sales but has to relocate for family. This company though was by far the best sales job i have ever had. They look at you as people and not just a number or something the make money off of. They CARE about you and your needs and make you prioritize yourself and family FIRST. That’s why their benefits and time off is SO SO AMAZING.
Advice to Management
Keep doing a great job!! I will say, that some managers need alittle extra work on their teaching skills and how to personalize it to different individuals .. i believe with alittle extra training... and feedback from your current employees it will help turn over rate forsure.
