    Pros

    In the beginning the salary was fair and the commission structure was excellent. The way the pay structure was set up definitely gave employees incentive to go the extra mile. I hit $10K in commission one month bc i worked hard for it but certainly lost alot of sleep that month bc of stress. Atmosphere was relaxed and diverse but could be uncomfortable due to the cliques.

    Cons

    They couldn't seem to figure out how they wanted to run the company from month to month. They ended up cutting our salaries by $15K and destroyed the commission structure after they began mass hiring. I started when it was a smaller company that had higher hiring standards. A college degree or higher education was required and solid sales experience. Eventually anyone with no experience and bare minimum education became their normal higher. It was chaos and territories became limited and beat up. Management is for the most part lackluster and unorganized. They often left a bad taste in my mouth with alot to be desired. The company became a running joke

    I worked at Angie's List full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good when you hit your numbers. Casual atmosphere

    Cons

    Upper management listens to rumors and has favorites. If you aren’t a favorite watch out. Definitely could use a new direction. Turn and burn atmosphere now. Used to care about the employees. No longer do they care and they are hiring anyone with a heartbeat. Reps are lying on the phone and nothing is ever done.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your dedicated employees.

    Pros

    If you like freedom and laxed dress code this is a awesome place to work.

    Cons

    Where do I start. Managers handpick who they want to give good leads to. Literally have to be friends with them in order to get leads that want to sign up. Poor commission structure have to sell 25k in ads just to get a payout of 250 dollars. Zero ongoing training poor management. Cutthroat Company with no stability people cheat the system cause others to lose their job while the rich stay rich. No vacation time or PTO for six months

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees don’t watch them sink while you hand premium prepped leads to top employees.
