    Pros

    Some nice and talented people I have worked with there although most of them are gone now.

    Cons

    Lots of talented and hard working people have left or are leaving the company. Very bad nepotism and clicks there. Very bad top executive choices. Although the company is claiming doing well, it is really not rosy as it is painted to be. The company was sold to THL, an equity firm, last year. The management is trying to cut the corners and re-package the company then resale it since lots of them reinvested in the company hoping to make some good cash out of it. Seeing who left and are leaving the company can tell a lot about your business outlook which is not very bright right now. Multiple layoffs since last year. The latest one was in 02/2018 with over 130 people.

    Advice to Management

    Not going to waste any words here since our voice was never truly heard in the past.

    I have been working at Auction.com part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The bidders are great to work with.

    Cons

    Corporate is very removed from field staff. We all have seen a $5,000-$8,000 pay cut after management told us changes to pay plan would not result in a pay cut.

    Advice to Management

    Your field employees are your 1st contact for bidders. Please show them some respect and rethink the compensation plan. You are about to lose very valuable talent.

    I have been working at Auction.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch on Wednesday’s and location. That’s it. Everything else is a con, but I’m required to write a 20 word minimum review.

    Cons

    Sweat shop environment, low pay and almost no PTO. Not family friendly at all. They don’t care about their employees or their families. It’s literally a sweat shop environment and no leniency at all when it comes to your personal lives or needs outside of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your most valuable asset, but you treat us like we are robots in a sweat shop. We have lives, and unfortunately, things come up. Be more lenient with us when emergencies happen. Work with us.
