    I worked at Brand.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked as the CEO and Managing Director of Webcide.com Cyber Reputation Department . They develop sophisticated cyber tools for removing negative information from the Internet . In the 18 months I worked there and lead the HighTech dept , we removed permanently Negative Search Results from Google , including : lawsuits records , bankruptcy, legal issues , negative articles, negative comments, negative customer complaints, scam reports , fraud alerts ,arrest records ,negative blogs , negative forum posts , negative mentioning ,negative reviews , images and videos , for thousands of clients . It was an excellent place to work at , and was lucky to found them and work for them .

    Cons

    They developed an advanced online PR network , for promoting 'negative online campaign' on behalf of hedge fund managers , activist short sellers , and politicians . This was legal , but devastating .

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest funds in the development of fake news removal tools , that is now an hot issue .

    Pros

    Good people with great industry experience below the senior management level.

    Cons

    Untrustworthy senior management. Lots of discussion about how great the company is doing, but payments to suppliers and even employees were routinely late.

    Pros

    There are some good people that work there and unfortunately are asked to distort the truth.

    Cons

    Where to begin...
    1. The business model is a scam
    2. Brand.com works with people with criminal histories (i.e. Sex Offenders) to attempt to conceal the truth from the general public.
    3. The sales staff threatened to lie or get fired
    4. Brand.com is not paying their employee's
    5. Brand.com is completely broke with no funding in site.
    6. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH BRAND.COM

    Advice to Management

    CLOSE THE BUSINESS DOWN. No amount of rebranding or logo shift will paint a positive light

    Pros

    This is a start-up so you have a lot of opportunities to do different types of work, and everyone is pretty nice

    Cons

    They used to be in the Reputation management business, and it seems at times that they will do anything to keep the lights on. It doesn't seem to be working. I have never worked at a place where I saw so many people laid off week after week.

    Advice to Management

    Investigate wether or not you really have a viable business model.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, fast paced environment, nice chair, and snacks. They fired their worst manager (finally.)

    Cons

    So I wasn't planning on ever writing a review for Brand, but a friend had seen the glassdoor and that prompted me to look at some of these reviews, which disgusted me. If you have any talent, do NOT join this team. These reviews say they fire people because "they were bad employees" or "not hard workers" and that could not be further from the truth. In one of the mass layoffs in September they let go the top performer in calls and transfers for the analyst team (who was only there for three months), the next week they fired a kid who was kinda pretentious, but built a scrapper that automated their lead generation (only there one month), and about two weeks later they let go their entire management team including their COO. Do not listen to these outrageous claims they "only fire weak links and they just complain on glassdoor." That is completely false and speaks to their poor morals. They also have all hands meetings every week because they can't communicate a clear or concise message to their employees.

    Advice to Management

    More doing. Less talking.

    I worked at Brand.com full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The office environment used to be the best part about working here. Coworkers are nice and we are al in the same boat.

    Cons

    BRAND.COM is the most UNSTABLE COMPANY there is. They have even self posted "All startups have issues, Brand.com just has less than everyone else". THIS IS AN OBVIOUS ATTEMPT TO JUSTIFY THE STRUGGLES THEY ARE HAVING. The MANAGEMENT TEAM is stupid enough to post under "Con" that the company is 'FUNDED WEEKLY' BY OUTSIDE INVESTORS. They are complete morons as they have just admitted the company has no money. I mean, what start-up company is funded weekly??? Do a little research on your own and you will find out the original founder is the only person funding this company.

    Advice to Management

    To the INEPT CEO - I have no advice for you! You have done a great job on your own demonstrating your inability to run a company. You place blame on great, talented employees for lack of revenue and then FIRE THEM! Wait, I do have some advice for you. Why not question your own decision to come to this company? Sir, take a GOOD, LONG, HARD LOOK IN THE MIRROR, this company is a REFLECTION OF YOU and that is not a compliment!!!
