    Pros

    What's left of the staff is very friendly! The Company plans parties, monthly lunches and a yearly summer picnic. Free parking, coffee and tea are provided. The CEO has an open door policy and is willing to take suggestions for changes and improvements to our products.

    Cons

    Company has done 2 massive lay-offs in 3 years, the last one was 3 months ago and they wiped out 95% of their Customer Service Department along with all of the Managers. They moved Managers from other departments who aren't qualified to run a call center and the quality of service to our customers is failing miserably. They don't care about the handful of employees left behind to pick up the pieces, they just pile more and more work on everyone! No communication and no compensation!

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people in Custoner Support, NOT SALES, give your current employees increases and the time and tools to provide excellent customer service! Hire experienced Managers to run Customer Service, not Marketing Managers!

    Pros

    Great launch pad for a sales career, over six years ago I started as a sales rep and was given the opportunity to greatly increase both my pay and career development. From account executive to a site director of the Tempe Office I can't be grateful enough of what DataSphere has helped me achieve.

    Cons

    It's a sales job, that requires a lot of cold calling. This is not for everybody, but if your willing to master your skill set, have the ability to self motivate you can do really well here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing your thing!

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. To clarify, Datasphere is not closing all together but we plan to close our Tempe location and move that headcount to our Bellevue location and grow ... More

    Pros

    The list goes on as far as pros are concerned. I've been working at the Tempe location since November. Came from a very corporate work environment, so as you can imagine, the change was a complete 180 for me. Also never been in sales. From day 1 everybody has been incredibly nice and respectful. Management was absolutely amazing, and completely approachable. I love how laid back the job is. Nobody watching over your back. Get your work done, and as long as your hitting your call/talk time, and sales requirements (which is not difficult to achieve as long as you're motivated), you will love it. I've gained skills in this job that will benefit me my entire life, thanks to help and support from management. Very laid back culture. The people are great; lots of energy and personality. Company provides great incentives as well (Ex. The winner of team contests goes out somewhere, on the company).

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any. Maybe some technical issues, such as better integration and feasibility between different internal systems. Other than that, I have no issues.

    Advice to Management

    KEEP DOING WHAT YOUR DOING!!!

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule
    Very laid back environment
    Awesome people
    Uncapped Commission
    1 call drops
    Fast easy money

    Cons

    The ad creative team and customer success team need to be revamped completely. To many lost deals due to other departments in the company. You sign someone up then you never talk to them again.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your tenured employees with respect, and stop picking favorites.

    Pros

    Great place to be part of a growing business, get your feet wet with a wide range of products, learn what you want to do, and get a feel for big company politics inside a mid-size company.

    Cons

    Big company politics, lots of ideas but no strategic goal, employee happiness varies greatly from team to team

    Advice to Management

    Fewer executives could help solidify a corporate strategy
