    I worked at Cortera full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good location steady check... they are making me write 20 words in the pros section.... there is just nothing else good to say.

    Cons

    All the newer, good reviews are done by marketing person. I have had 5-6 current employees send me their resume to get out of there.

    Advice to Management

    This advice is actually for the investors. When you come to the office, speak with people that they don't want you speaking with. Not sure if this is possible due to the ceo's large portion of ownership, but he should be a CTO. He is no leader of men and does not respect other points of view.

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow with a business that is truly revolutionizing the commercial data space. The management and leadership are innovative and believe in flexible platforms to suit their client's needs. Cortera has had a rebirth. The CEO has made key personnel moves like bringing on CRO Bob Maguire. Bob is changing the sales culture and in the last 90 days the company sales organization has flipped 180 degrees. The CEO is totally accessible and wants to hear all ideas.

    Cons

    None to speak of currently.

    Advice to Management

    Keep giving your employees what they need to succeed. Onward and Upward!

    Pros

    If you're a driven, committed, hard-working individual, you will enjoy the culture of this company. This is a place where the braintrust really appreciates people who challenge the status quo and allow you the freedom to use your creativity to reach your goals.

    Cons

    The company had some growing pains, with the wrong mix of employees, and had to make many changes to change the company's culture.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, this is a great working environment.

    I have been working at Cortera full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The CEO has created a creative culture with an open door policy. All ideas are welcome and the agility of the company allows Cortera to stay innovative and make changes quickly rather than having to wait months to get approvals or funding as in a large corporation. Jim, the CEO makes each employee feel valued by spending time with them, sharing his passion and foundation of the business he has built. He offers a unique way of thinking that encourages growth end empowers everyone in this office. I enjoy coming to work each day because my colleagues are also happy to be here and willing to help whenever needed.
    The product stands out among its competitors and makes it easy to sell to customers. We are truly in this game to help our customers save money and have clear view of their portfolio to avoid getting burned. Cortera is a great place to work with a positive culture, growth opportunity, and strong leadership.

    Cons

    You get to work in beautiful Boca Raton, Florida and have to look at blue skies and palm trees all day, although the office is a bit cold

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the positive culture and hire strong individuals to continue to grow the business

    I have been working at Cortera full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None that I can think of. This place is a revolving door. The person who hired me left after 2 weeks, and so have many others.

    Cons

    The business model itself is a con. The product being sold is second rate data at best. Never worked so hard for such pay. At the interview they lie to you about potential. You cannot make 40,000 a year here if you tried. The whole sales staff hates their jobs. Never seen such low morale anywhere. My advice is run from this company

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the sales staff to a few performers. Raise pay and put up a more aggressive commission structure

    Pros

    Nice office space, great working tools. The interviewing team was kind. The pay offered was sufficient for entry level. Lots of parking and great location

    No African Americans and the interview process was vigorous and wanting you to fail. Company is a little difficult to find, no numbers on building

    Advice to Management

    Hire some diversity in the office

    Pros

    Good location, that is the only pro. It is a paycheck if you need one.

    Cons

    The sales manager is an idiot. Manages with fear and doesn't have clue how to do hid job. Every meeting starts with i have total anonymity I can fire you anytime i want. They lie about the commission plan during the interview and then explain the pay plan after you are hired. Which is very wrong. Do yourself a favor, RUN AWAY, very fast. This place is a revolving door between the prople being fired and the masses that quit..

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your potential employees and your investors. Treat people with honesty and respect.
