    Great Job Great Company

    Oct 1, 2022 - Account Executive in Seattle, WA

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There is a LOT of opportunity at AVVO. Avvo's product works for most attorney's (no ones ad product works for everyone) and it is easy to sell. The company has a great sales culture and everyone is willing to help - you just have to ask. Management gives you a lot flexibility on how you want to work your schedule and there is no micr-management. This is a cold calling job and you have to be willing to get on the phone a lot and you need to be skilled at email, but if you put in the work you can make really good money.

    Cons

    The base pay is low, but the company makes up for it with a generous commission plan.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There aren’t many to speak of, some of the managers are friendly

    Cons

    The product does not work. Most attorneys have a very negative perception of Avvo and will hang up when you mention the company name. The lists of attorneys that you are calling have been beat to death each month by other reps.

    Low base salary working for an outdated company with no innovation

    Sep 8, 2022 - Account Executive 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Company culture is decent, but the cons far greatly outweigh the pros.

    Cons

    -The base salary is low and not competitive despite inflation/cost of living increasing -The premier account executives get the majority of leads, and the ones that are actually good/decent. -Premiers are able to call the best prospects, everyone else gets stuck calling the same attorneys who have repeatedly said no and hate Avvo -The company has increased their price so much but the product is practically the same. Avvo is putting lipstick on a pig but attorneys aren’t fooled -They’re always looking for ways to cut costs -Poor insurance with high co pays -Constant revolving door of sales people. Avoid working there!!!

    Great Management- No flexibility

    Jun 24, 2022 - Sr, Legal Marketing Expert in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great management. They are knowledgeable and compassionate and do not over-micromanage. I genuinely like the people I work with.

    Cons

    You have to punch a clock and there is very little flexibility, even though you work remotely. You must work a minimum of 6 hrs a day and 38 hours a week. If you have a family and any doctor appointments it is hard to find time to do it with only a 30 min lunch. The usual feed the top model... if you are a premier rep you get to reap the benefits of being fed awesome leads, getting all the incoming calls.. close huge deals. While the AE, or SR AE's...just dial like crazy trying to scape what you can. Everyone calls so often on the same attorneys...every two weeks they get called., so it is very draining and you get burned out. Hard to hit your quota when it feels like most attorneys hate you because they get called so often.

    Acquired and ruined by a greedy, talentless company called Internet Brands.

    Sep 23, 2022 - Software Engineer in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Whatever is left prior to the 2018 acquisition - which isn't much.

    Cons

    This was a great company before it was acquired in 2018, now it's a shell of itself. Anyone with talent left within a couple of years and now all that's left are coasters. The new management only care about where the money comes from and made a lot of terrible decisions that have made the product terrible to use and harder to sell.

    Not a fair opportunity.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Nice office and good people.

    Cons

    Not enough lead generation. Impossible to hit quotas. Calling the same people over and over again. All of the good leads and clients go to senior reps which make up 90% of the sales. They don’t let newer reps call good leads ever. No wonder they lose all of the good people. Small support when you they see you struggling. Just reports to call that are all dialed the heck through. Good luck.

    Pros

    Met some cool people. Good managers for the most part and good comp plan if you can exceed your quota.

    Cons

    Pretty sink or swim. It’s a grind.
