    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - *used to have great training*
    -clear expectations for promotion path

    Cons

    -nepotism, favoritism, slightly veiled racism, sexism, the height of bro-ism = LOWEST MORALE EVER
    -not a stepping stone for anything beyond b2b, mid-market
    -not collaborative at all, sales, marketing, cs, are all siloed and equally miserable
    -their top sales people literally think their customers are stupid

    Advice to Management

    -measure everyone by the same ruler, despite seniority
    -invest in manager training, performance management, and an actual HR department so you can find out why your best people aren't sticking around
    -stop focusing only on new business and quota attainment- Healthy growth is equally important, and not caring about churn shows customers and employees that you care about your people on both ends.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, amazing friendships made.

    Cons

    Management is disorganized, wear too many hats to give the leadership needed, moral is low, there is blatant animosity leaders turn a blind eye to. Micromanaging at a high up level and trickles down without anything being done.

    Advice to Management

    Make things equal, pay a livable wage for San Francisco, and set up realistic bonus structures that you actually understand that are not set up to scam your own employees over hard earned money.

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

    Pros

    Great work life balance

    Work is fairly easy

    Lunch provided a couple times a month; snacks everyday

    Very casual environment

    Great for first job out of college

    Cons

    Very high turnover rate, this leads to inconsistency across the company and lack of leadership.

    HQ and higher up leadership are spread over different companies within Internet Brands, not focused on DF

    Very low morale and loyalty in all offices

    Casual setting and lack of leadership skills causes constant inappropriate behavior

    Zero accountability

    Tons of micro managing

    Can form bad habits

    Advice to Management

    Though you may have been thrusted into this role quickly, take the time to learn how to manage employees. There must be accountability as well as praise.

    Learn to lead, employees productivity is more important than them sitting at their desk.

    Prioritize your projects and goals while utilize time management; over multitasking leads to only giving 80% on everything.
