    I worked at 1SEO.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Trial by fire, great experience. - Work in whatever stack you want (they don't even know what a stack is) - Don't worry about pesky version controlling - No strict coding standards (none at all - make them up!) - Great insurance - Free Snacks - Nice clean office

    Cons

    - Working in WordPress - No peer review - Their code base is filled with SQL injection vulnerabilities - Low pay (good for first job if you have no experience) - Long hours (This could be avoided by hiring a developer to manage the developers and hiring project managers to manage projects) - Stressful environment (this is all agencies so not really a con of 1seo but of the...

    Advice to Management

    Use asana to manage your projects, seriously you can't use basecamp for development work. Put your codebase in private github repos, adopt standards and review each other work to check for bugs. You're really not TOO far from doing things the correct way but you create 100000% more work by not following agile methodologies.

      Pros

      They work hard to train their employees so we could do the best job possible for our clients. In return, they gave us a fun atmosphere to work and the benefits were great! I have referred friends over the years to apply for a job at 1SEO.

      Cons

      I didn't experience anything bad or negative when working at 1SEO.

      I worked at 1SEO.com full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      There were no pros! Absolutely none. I stuck it out until I found another SEO Strategist job at which I have worked for almost 2 years and am very happy!

      Cons

      I worked at 1SEO for over a year.......the training is poor, the pay is downright terrible and they work you like a slave! I had experience as an SEO Strategist coming in so they gave me tons of clients. When I left 1SEO, and thankfully I did, I had 62 SEO clients - Simply impossible for one human being to handle. Also, they tell clients...

      Advice to Management

      Lance Bachmann the President of 1SEO has an ego almost as big as Donald Trump and you know that is a HUGE ego. I highly recommend that he mature and becoming a real businessman that treats his employees and customers with respect! Also, stop parading around the office showing off how "great" your office is to prospective clients and don't lie to clients.

      Pros

      I have been at 1SEO for almost two years now. I love the culture here and the team is amazing. From the day I started you could tell 1SEO is family. Everyone is always willing to help and be successful.

      I worked at 1SEO.com full-time

      Pros

      The job is okay for entry level people, and only because the name looks good on a resume. Except you can't get a job anywhere else when you decide to leave 1seo because of the non compete. If you are considering working for 1seo I STRONGLY encourage you to get a lawyer to look over the non compete so you will know how limited you are going to be in finding a new job. They will (and have) sue employees who leave.

      Cons

      There is absolutely no work-life balance. You're expected to bring your laptop and work through vacations (these are vacation days that you have earned). There's a reason the workers at 1seo are all so young. The place is not family friendly at all. The only girl who pumped milk for her baby had to do it on the floor of the supply cabinet, while the CEO made room for a basketball...

      I worked at 1SEO.com

      Pros

      Below you'll see a lot of cons, all of which I feel are not unjustified, but I don't want to completely demonize this company. It's hard to explain, but regardless of the fact that the perks and benefits are mostly a strategy for them to offset having to pay a fairer salary, I think the executives are still sincere in their efforts to make life here fairly fun and comfortable for the employees. Like any business, their...

      Cons

      The one thing I would advise current and prospective employees be most concerned about is that most of the powers that be at 1SEO have the same last name. In other words, they'll tell you that they're there for you until the cows come home, but in my experience, contrary actions have proven much louder than words. The executive team at 1SEO...

      Advice to Management

      Get an official HR rep who isn't in the family. That will seriously boost your credibility/employee perception when it comes to internal issues, and probably save you a lot of headaches.

      Pros

      The team at 1SEO is first class, caring, and diligent. Executive team is incredibly passionate and it shows in their customer service and product. Excellent amenities and free healthcare. Industry knowledge and support from team to excel in the industry. Process and systems work.

      Cons

      Not enough offices nation-wide. Each state needs a 1SEO team for its businesses.

      Keep up the good work.

      I have been working at 1SEO.com full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      In the couple years I've been here, I've had multiple raises, a new role created for me, and perks thrown my way on random occasions. If you are producing your best work and putting extra hours in when necessary, management will reward you for your dedication. The role can be stressful at times, but you will find that at any job. I love the people I work with here, you will not find a culture like this anywhere else.

      Cons

      I can't think of anything for this box. I would like to add that if you don't feel the same way I do about 1SEO, you didn't care enough to produce your best work.

      Pros

      I have worked at 1SEO for me than 3 years now. I have seen this company grow from 15 employees to now 40+ employees and they are still hiring. Since I have been with the company I have been treated very fair. From day 1 when I was hired they said that I would need to educate my self as much as possible about SEO, and they would train me and help me with any questions that I have. They have more than fulfilled there promise....

      With any job, especially as a company grows there is Gossip, however the only advice I can give to the people gossiping about other employees is, if you put as much focus into your own professional career and not so much the gossip, you may be surprised how quick your view changes about 1SEO.

      Advice to Management

      You guys are great and always very helpful, lets try and do more training sessions to make everyone better as a whole.

      I have been working for 1SEO.com since March 2014. Everyday I learn something new, I am treated with respect and I am never micro-managed. 1SEO truly treats their employees well.
