ChurnZero is full of innovators and motivated individuals. In my nearly 4 years here, I have never felt nervous to bring up ideas or suggestions to Leadership and my opinion always feels valued. As far as the product and our position in the space - while it is becoming increasingly more competitive, ChurnZero's product team does a stellar job of growing the product and leaning into innovation to stay differentiated. Love working around like-minded individuals that want to continue to get better every day.
Like I'm sure most at any organization feel, there's always room for more conversations around pay increases especially on an annual basis. With that said, the compensation in my experience as been more than fair.1

The beginning of my time there was very positive, the CS management at that time had a good understanding of the product, the customer base, and their employees needs. My coworkers were highly effective team players at that time as well.
Last summer a changing of the guard occurred in CS leadership, this led to a lot of strategic changes that were not very well thought out and caused a great deal of friction on the team as a whole. High performers were having their compensation tied to team performance and thus being financially punished if they outperformed the average, naturally this incentivized lazy behavior. This system was kept in place for the better part of a year, during that time the vast majority of the ambitious, effective, and most importantly >knowledgeable< team members (including every single mid level manager who was there before the change in CS leadership) parted ways with the company, either being forced out for not agreeing with the poorly made plans of CS management or leaving for higher pay with less hassle at any number of other positions in CS management most people at CZ are easily equipped to fill. This place is a hollow shell of what it once was. Nobody above a mid level manager in CS could even try to give you a demo of this product because they simply don't understand it and will never learn it and are proud of that fact.5

We have some incredible people who are truly passionate about what they do and will often go beyond their normal job description to drive a positive customer experience. My colleagues are really what keeps me going in a time that is honestly rough for CS/SaaS in general. I've learned so much in my time here and the thought leadership and CS community ChurnZero cultivated has provided a wealth of learning and networking opportunities. The product is constantly improving and creating an impact for our customers!
CS leadership lacks empathy and has created an environment driven off of fear. There is lack of alignment at the leadership level and Managers/CSMs are burning out. There is no work life balance at the moment and the compensation is far below what I've seen as industry standard.5

The people and culture is good. The management means well but the industry isnt in the place currently to facilitate demands of employees. SDRs are good and work well here, work life balance is great, and SDR manager is a 10/10. Great software to help you do your job!
No upward mobility at the moment, but could improve in the future. Difficult to sell in the current stage the CS market is in. compensation could definitely be better compared to other companies.1

I've been enjoying my time at ChurnZero. The management team is transparent and always approachable. They are very willing to be involved to help win deals, even the CEO. The passion level is high, and you can feel it talking to peers and the executives. The product is great with a very solid team backing it. And customer love ChurnZero. ChurnZero invests in their employees with new tech and plenty of options for professional development.
ChurnZero is still very much a scaling startup with those types of common challenges. I believe the management team does listen and genuinely try and establish the best processes to enable us to grow successfully.

A company dedicated to thoughtful innovation through a product that always earns great reviews from customers. Last month, we became the first customer success platform to hit 1,000 reviews on G2—with 92% of those being five-star ratings. This month, we made headlines for our launch of new Customer Success AI features, our BIG RYG conference announced for October, and our fourth annual Customer Success Leadership Study. It feels good to be influencing an industry with projects like these. Transparent and accessible leadership. We’re in a bumpy economy and downstream from many customers who are experiencing a rough ride. Leadership has been upfront and honest about these challenges, how we’re meeting them, and the vision for the future. The CEO is down-to-earth, engaged with people, and only ever a Slack message away. Great execution on remote work. The company is remote-first and all events, meetings and activities are thoughtfully planned that way—including in-person ones (this year’s holiday celebration took the form of more than 10 synchronized, in-person dinner events in the cities closest to our teammates hometowns across the US and Europe. At the same time, the DC office is always open for people to come in, meet and collaborate.
In my experience... there’s nothing bad here. Others have mentioned politics; I haven’t experienced them. Maybe that’s a side-effect of being remote, but ChurnZero honestly feels like good people through and through.1

- The SDR’s in total are ambitious and want common career growth opportunities.
-The entire SDR department needs to be destroyed and built back up. It is a colossal screw up. The environment is built that encourages quantity over quality meetings. Currently, the culture is to make as much money as possible BUT not being able to contribute to actually bringing in quality prospects. Marketing drives nearly 90% of all revenue for the company while the SDR’s have contributed to a handful of deals all year. The SDR’s are treated as a joke, no AE is ever serious about pursuing SDR generated leads, only inbound opps. -Very unorganized department. No one ever knows what’s happening until it’s too late. Marketing will steal and take credit for work SDR’s have done. Some SDR’s will steal other peoples accounts without asking and there’s no accountability. There’s a specific number of SDR’s that get special treatment to hit bonuses/avoid pips.10ChurnZero Response2mo
Ready to talk about your experience directly. The SDR role is challenging always and is particularly so during economically challenging times, but it shouldn't prompt these feelings. Please reach out.

I love the product. It is very helpful for the customers but even for us internally as well. Hard to imagine how I ever worked without it. The product also works and rarely has bugs and if it does our support team is on it fast! The people here are also amazing and empathetic and brilliant, the bests in class CSMs.
Been some large internal changes and Constant process updates. The tool is very robust and has lots of nuances based on the large range of integrations. But honestly still an amazing company! With great support even for these challenges.

Helpful colleagues One of the best bosses I've ever had Opportunities for personal improvement Welcoming atmosphere Great place to work when things are going well
With the economic climate the way it is you're not secure in your job here even a little bit. You can be the only head of a department or the lowest on the totem pole it doesn't matter, they're cutting back and cutting back hard. The training is rather abysmal, especially for the sales reps, and when you subsequently underperform you're pushed out. I worked here for almost two years and when it was my time to be layed off it was quick and fast with no support. Really makes you feel like your time spent here was worthless to them. Understandable that there will be cuts, but I believe it could be handled much, much better8ChurnZero Response7mo
Thanks for taking the time to write your thoughts. I believe folks that join ChurnZero have had opportunities to succeed and my guess is that you probably did as well. If you disagree, I would like to hear about your experience. Please drop me a line.
