I worked at CW from 2014-2020. After I left I realized what a mistake I had made. I came back in May of 2022 taking a much different position and I am so glad I did. My leadership team is amazing. I have the best colleagues and I haven't been happier!
Non-commission position, but I knew that going in and was not wanting the stress of a quota etc.ConnectWise Response3mo
Thank you so much for your heartwarming message – it truly made my day! I also left CW and couldn't agree more with your sentiments about returning to the ConnectWise Team. The decision to come back was undoubtedly the best move I made, and your post really resonated with me! During my time away from CW, I realized just how much I missed the incredible colleagues and the unique culture that defines our team. Your words perfectly encapsulated my feelings – we are indeed fortunate to have the most amazing leaders and the absolute best colleagues. It's a privilege to be part of a team that not only values its colleagues but also fosters an environment where everyone can thrive. Reach out to me at HR@ConnectWise.com if you have any additional feedback or if you want to grab a virtual coffee!

Great friendship Great Partners Decent benefits
Lots, the culture is lost. Our innovation is gone. Teams are exhausted and we are losing great talent because of this. Seems like we are back to the days of the “boys club”. Promotions and new positions are added based on who you know and not what you know. Our Partners see right through the smoke and mirrors. Very little change to Mange (PSA) or Sell (CPQ) in years. This is why companies like HALOPSA are winning our Partners over. Zero work/life balance. IM’s, Texts, meetings, calls are scheduled for many after hours.1ConnectWise Response7d
Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns about the current state of our workplace.

The only pro was that it was WFH
Zero coaching was done for the role - First two weeks were training on all the products, with the second one focusing on the products I'd be selling. Nothing about the customers/prospects, their problems and challenges, etc. Sales isn't about selling products, it's about solving problems. Training should be able problems, not products. Unattainable quotas - Quota was so needlessly, impossibly high that you can't help but laugh. On top of that, based on the average deal size and sales cycle length, you'd think the OTE would align with the size of the quota. Nope. It was exploitative. Too short of a ramp - Multiple managers said it would take at least six months before you start to reap what you sow. Okay, so then why was ramp only 3 months? Lack of diversity and culture - The team was probably 90% white males over the age of 40. Not enough females, whether as IC's or in leadership. All of this indicates that new reps were not set up for success. Oh, and pretty much every Connectwise customer WILL have billing issues at some point. It's an absolute mess. Some customers have been waiting on billing credits for 6+ months.7ConnectWise Response2mo
Thank you for your comments-- I have forwarded them to our Chief Revenue Officer for review and action.

You get to learn a lot of different technologies. I'd say it's a very good place to make a pitstop for a 2-3 year career development, especially for early career engineers.
Culture got noticeable worse after the hiring of the new CTO last year. A very bad burnout culture developed soon after. There's a huge emphasis on working harder rather than smarter. Lots of people sending messages at midnight as "hey, look how hard I'm working" virtue signaling ... and, even worse, that seems to be what's rewarded in career growth rather than project outcomes. Last month, the company had a nearly hour long company broadcast for Mental Health Awareness Month and burnout ... less than a week later, mandatory crunch time was announced.6ConnectWise Response4mo
Our CTO has read this and is aware of these struggles you're facing. We know this current environment may not be for everyone, and we know our (very talented) colleagues have options. We are in a big push to deliver on some really cool products by the end of the year and would love for our people to stay on the journey with us. However, our number one priority is your health and safety, so if this direction does not work for you, please come talk with me.

There are zero Pros to this company. We are told one thing then sent an email saying disregard then the company holds you accountable for any mistakes done on your part. There is zero benefit to working with this company as everybody is out for themselves here. Nobody cares about each other and the whole "we are a team" is a joke here. If and when this company finds a reason to blame you for anything they do it immediately.
This entire company is run by employees who have no knowledge on how to manage their employees. Managers are mostly promoted employees who have zero idea what they are doing when it comes to being a manager. There is a reason that Management is listed as a con for this company. Every reply to negative feedback on here is someone who lies about how great things are. There is a reason there is so much turnover here. When you voice your opinion on something here nothing is done. The management here is so bad. The entire company is an outsourced help desk to every single employee is told to lie to each caller that "we are your help desk; and we only help you" when you get off that call you then lie to the next person and keep lying nonstop because this company runs on lies. The entire ticket system goes down and then nobody knows how to fix it, so they just reboot a server and tell all the employees to tell customers we are having issues (which is daily - nonstop). Corporate only looks at profit margins and does not care to address any issues other than telling customers to pay more for their service to increase revenue when Connectwise has extremely poor employees who have zero care for their clients. Hence if a 5-year employee doesn't want to help somebody, they just disconnect the call and then lie about why it happened and then management does nothing about it because once again this place is run with poor management. Take some advice and realize why this site has so many negative reviews on this company. If you chose to value your work then don't work here because nobody cares about anything other than a paycheck here. Management watches the clock to see when they can clock out so they can act like they didn't see any emails about issues and pass the issues on to the next employee. That's exactly how this place is run. Nobody takes accountability here and the company is falling apart. There is a reason the old CEO sold this company. Jason the new CEO has no idea what he is doing when it comes to being a leader here. Paychecks are horrible compared to smaller IT companies because when you work at Connectwise you are a number in this circus.4ConnectWise Response3w

You get a company laptop to work on You get a paycheck
You work with employees and staff who do not care No equal paychecks as employees are paid differently for the exact same position You are a number here and this company does not value a single employee3ConnectWise Response3mo
I am sorry your experience does not match what others have experienced here at CW. I believe our colleagues and leadership really do care about CW and our colleagues. We see our colleagues as part of our great team, never as a number. To show our colleagues that we care, we host monthly calls to provide everyone a company update and to recognize colleagues, offer ongoing training, offer competitive benefits including unlimited time away, have a great recognition program, host fun events throughout the year including costume contest, volunteering opportunities, etc. I welcome the opportunity to talk through your experience and hear your suggestions - maybe we can implement some of your recommendations! Please reach out to me at HR@ConnectWise.com so we can discuss.
