    I worked at ClearSlide

    Pros

    Can’t really think of anything.

    Cons

    Company has no growth play and can only slow down the nonstop bleeding. There is no culture, free lunch, perks, bonuses or raises and they went from a sky rise building in SF to an office in WeWork that’s no larger than your average walk in closet. Most employees are using devices that are dinosaur age and they even went from a 200+ team to about 25-30.

    I have been working at ClearSlide full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working in sales it's hard to find a place that just lets you do what you do best, sell! No call minimums, no one standing by the door to make sure you arent 1 min late, no micromanaging.

    Cons

    ClearSlide is being rebuilt, almost like a start-up within a bigger company. If you don't like being challenged with stretch assignments and high energy teammates you won't like it here.

    Pros

    Nice office in the heart of San Francisco with great views

    Cons

    In-experienced founders didn't know how to best utilize seasoned and experienced professionals that they hired. And then once they brought on a new leader that didn't have the best interest of the company at heart, the rest was history.

    Pros

    Fantastic team. You will be around smart, passionate, and fun people. Exciting industry. The space is growing fast and ClearSlide is one of the leaders. The parent company is investing into the product and the team after the acquisition. While the product is still very much relevant, it is on the trajectory to recapture the leadership in the space. The office is in a good location next to the Ferry Building.

    Cons

    The company had to go through some growth issues as a startup and through an acquisition last year, so that might have made things a bit chaotic in the past.

    I worked at ClearSlide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is only one - it’s the location.

    Cons

    What used to be a leader in the space has become a dying company with incompetent management, dysfunctional Sales and Marketing leaders and product that doesn’t work. Consequently, frustrated customers are churning on daily basis. On top of that they are very unprofessional in dealing with customers&employees. Would not recommend to anyone!

    I worked at ClearSlide full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Views from the New York and San Francisco Office are stunning. SF Location overlooks the Bay Bridge with beautiful sunrises over Oakland. New York location is next to the Empire State Building with an accessible outdoor balcony. Seattle office was your typical, startup sales office located downtown. Unlimited PTO and strong base salary make Clearslide bearable.

    Cons

    Once upon a time, there was great culture. That was shot down through the acquisition at the end of 2017. A majority of the staff was laid off and the remainder of the staff was transitioned to a position to beg clients to stay with Clearslide. No guidance on what the company was looking to achieve. There was no transparency into how the company was doing or where we were headed. Clearslide had a decent product, but clients have no idea about the majority of the sales tools and analytics. They will strictly use it as a screen sharing tool, there for Clearslide is a "Nice to have, not need to have" product. There were several quarters in which not a single sales rep hit quota, which reflects on the competitive market, competitions products being far superior, and lack of leadership.
