Mission: EdgeRock’s founders believe that true business success is based on and measured by the behavior of its people. We are committed to growing a thriving business that exemplifies the attitudes and behaviors expected of experienced professionals.
I worked at EdgeRock Technology Partners full-time (Less than a year)
The strength of EdgeRock is their seniority. Both Josh and Jay Hulme, David Diaz, and Nick Clement are exceptional resources in helping you learn and grow at EdgeRock. Excellent advice, wealth of experience, and proven success in the industry are things they bring to the table. Having access to them is critical to succeeding there and a major draw for staying. They were my draw to the company and are proof that the process works.
I'm exceedingly grateful for the opportunity to work there, however for a shor ttime. Their process most certainly works if you put the time in, listen to senior management (both delivery and sales), and are smart enough to both ask questions and learn from them.
Once you've proven you can pay attention, show up on time, and begin earning money for the company, you afforded and exceptional amount of flexibility, comraderie, and positive feedback. In short, it does feel great to succeed there - especially given the casual, but results driven atmosphere. I franklt left because I was given a better offer elsewhere, but not for lack of success. I would recommend people work here if you can make it through the training and immediately have access to the right members of senior staff to guide your development.
Lackluster training, 8-5:30 workday, little to no benefits besides generous commission structure.
Advice to Management
Training needs to be gutted and rebuilt from the ground up. The staff are doing the best they can, but they are not training professionals. Reading off of a powerpoint for 8+ hours a day is not pedgogically viable. People 100% will not learn. There are studies done on this. The money needs to be spent for interactive, scenario-based training that is conducted - or at the very least curated - by senior staff. Make someone an offer they can't refuse to be a training advisor. Any of the people mentioned would be a welcome asset to a training that saw me trying to hit KPI's for the first three months, but not actually learn how to sell.
Additionally, the office hours are cumbersome. I understand that sales is 100% about volume, but a better-educated and loyal sales stuff is significantly more worthwhile than the extra hour that is required of the sales staff. Knowing a company cares about your well-being and work life balance instills loyalties in a job that can be a grind at times.
I applied online. I interviewed at EdgeRock Technology Partners.
I went through a preliminary phone interview with a Recruiter then two face to face interviews after that. The process took about 2-3 week to go through. The Recruiter mentioned that he would continue to follow-up and I never heard anything back. I continue to follow-up with the Recruiter. To not hear a "yes or no" answer from them gives me an inconsiderate impression. Also, the promise from the Recruiter telling me that he would follow-up but not get back to me shows a lack of integrity and commitment.
Our CFO, Steve Sorrentino, accepted our Jimmy Fund Golf plaque in honor of our fundraising at the EdgeRock Charity Golf tournament last September. We raised $23,000! Many thanks to everyone who sponsored and attended the tournament. We are proud to support the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and The Jimmy Fund.
