    I have been working at Accelerite full-time

    Pros

    medical benefits are good, bonuses are good, a lot of products in the portfolio to sell. Many big name enterprise customers.

    Cons

    Leadership doesn't know how to lead. No track record for building and selling new products. Team leads should have strong knowledge and experience in the industry they are attempting to sell into. No yearly goals set by supervisors and no one on one reviews done. Silicon Valley company should have majority of employees and developers at least within the U.S. Lack of Product Marketing with industry knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie about what your products can do. Hire people with industry knowledge and let those people LEAD the company. Don't tell people they will have a seat at the table and then not follow through after they join. There is a difference between having a lot of work experience and having successful work experience in building and selling innovative products in an evolving marketplace. Developers and PMs should not be...

  5. "Inside Sales"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Inside Sales Manager in Collegeville, PA

      I worked at Accelerite for more than a year

      Pros

      Positive working environment with a comfortable team environment. Company is going through growth and changes which also could lead to advancement if applicable.

      Cons

      Communication is sometimes lacking, but is partially due to the changing environment and regionally based employee locations. Training was a little sparse in the beginning, but there were always people to help answer when questions came up

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Accelerite full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The management is very hands off and doesn't micro manage everything while still giving the resources needed to do your job. Great well stocked break room. Definitely one of the better jobs Ive had.

      Cons

      Small team means everyone is pulling double duty. Pay could be better.

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the good work but try to get more talent in the door.

      I worked at Accelerite full-time

      Pros

      On paper Accelerite seems ideal with their startup environment, young leadership team and financial backing from a global company. I enjoyed my coworkers and the benefits were good.

      Cons

      Accelerite's technology portfolio is crap because the products are dinosaurs. They are unable to deliver on promises made to customers and partners. Not to mention that it is hard to sell when the sales leaders didn't properly train us on the technology we are selling. Do not believe anything management tells you about career growth and opportunities available to you within the company because it won't happen. I'd be...

      Advice to Management

      The only way to save this company is to cut off it's head (ie the leaders) and get people in that have proven expertise and results. Also invest in competent engineering teams that actually know how to build products.

      I worked at Accelerite full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Good pay and benefits. Office culture started off good, but quickly changed after a few months. Also in a good location with free parking. Start up environment with corporate backing. A lot of vacation days to start off with.

      Cons

      Company was unclear on the direction that it wanted to go. Seems that they hired a sales team just to scrape there books to gather potential opportunities, then get rid of the sales team after 6 months. Seems to be the model that this company follows. Claims to be a transparent organization but gave no heads up until the day they let everyone go from the revenue team. Does not appreciate hard work, and it is a revolving...

      Advice to Management

      Be honest with your employee 's and realize the market that you are in. Find a way to make the product more innovative. Also training was non existent, seems like a poor business model in regards to sales, seems to take advantage of hard workers and kick them to the curb when they feel they are done with you.
