    I worked at Angie's List full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Met great people, made great money for a few years.

    Cons

    The company started out great and really grew over the years. I started at the company when there were around 300 people. Everyone around me were hardworking, smart, intelligent people, and then as we started to grow they started promoting the brown nosers in the company to management. To be a manager at Angie's List you had to have no soul, no opinion, and be a complete yes man/woman. Almost everyone they made managers were people that were just good enough at their job to not get fired, and they were the only ones that wanted to be managers because it usually meant taking a pay cut, but better than no job. The managers could literally be replaced by robots, because all they did was push refresh on the dashboards to see if their team was any closer to goal so they could get their bonus that they did not earn a penny of. When you asked them to help you on a deal, they would sometimes help and hop on a call but immediately just undercut your pricing and do whatever it took to get a deal signed and closed, because at the end of the day all they cared about was their needle moving toward goal, not your personal success as an individual. Slowly over the years the company started to go down hill. The comp plan had been changed more times than we could count, and they were always just over correcting previous mistakes that some idiot in upper management made. As the years went on they pretty much hired any one with a pulse, which made being proud of where you work very difficult. I went from working with some of the best in Indy, to working along side people equivalent to used car salesmen that used cheap tricks to hit goal and screw over the customers on a regular basis. Company functions were embarrassing to be at since people were often over served and were all hooking up with each other. It was honestly as bad or worse than high school. All in all this company could have been great, but poor management, led by even worse management, then somehow even worse management led this company straight into the toilet which led to it being bought out by it's biggest competitor, which now everyone seems to think is a "good thing" even though everyone knows that Home Advisor is ten times shadier than Angie's List ever was.

    Advice to Management

    I have heard that things have gotten little better. However, do what Angie's List never did. Treat the individual contributors as good or better than the managers. They are the only ones that actually do anything there. Don't promote people that are a sub par at best reps, and look for outside hires with new perspective to lead the teams of talented people that you have left.

    I worked at Angie's List full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Initially seemed like it would be a fun and exciting job, but maybe too good to be true

    Cons

    Cold calling Sales position - which was NOT what I was lead to believe the job was. It was, actually, too good to be true. The interview was very vague and the actual job position and duties were not truthfully disclosed.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not bait and switch potential employees. I left a much better paying job, across the country, to come work for Angie's list to only be let go a year down the line because I could not perform the duties of the position as it was not within my scope.

    Pros

    Fun co-workers. Challenging environment. Great culture (originally), fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Merger. Dramatic change in culture. Lack of growth opportunities in the end.

    Advice to Management

    This company is a new company now. I can't really comment on what ANGI Homeservices does as unfortunately, I didn't get to experience this new company as I was let go.
