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

    Pros

    Coming to work for DiscoverOrg was one of the best decisions I ever made and I will never look back. I have only been here a couple months, but I have felt the difference every day. Even though I wake up earlier to come to work, I'm actually EXCITED to go see my new friends and have fun in my job! I'm also given plenty of opportunities outside of my "normal" job duties to be creative and make a difference in the company and our processes.

    P.S.- The people are amazing here and treat you with respect in whatever job you are in - I feel truly valued working here.

    Cons

    Too much growth, longer lines for the microwaves.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on. Management is super transparent and I never feel like I'm out of the loop on anything.

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

    Pros

    -Amazing Company Culture. This speaks to both the personnel, and the overall style/tone. Feels like a family that pushes you to your best.
    -Huge opportunities for upward movement. Happens at a quick rate for those who apply themselves
    -The company offers University-esque classes for those who want to learn additional information. Along with that, training and meetings also somewhat operate like a classroom - I feel like they provided me with a 4-year degree worth of knowledge in Business.
    -Great location in Downtown Vancouver. The 9th floor view overlooking the city is nothing to take for granted.
    -The talent that you're surrounded by is hard to collectively find. Since it's such a cooperative environment, everyone gets better everyday, simply thanks to their peers.
    -Competitive pay
    -Benefits and overall HR experience is unparalleled
    -The company compliments the "work hard" mentality very well when it comes to social events.
    -The leadership/executive staff.
    -Last but not least, the product/solution itself.

    Cons

    The only thing I will say, is that the company just went through an acquisition (of their biggest competitor). There were no cons while I was working at DiscoverOrg, but I'm sure there will be a couple growing pains associated with the months to come - simply due to the success of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, because it's working extremely well.

    Pros

    Work hard mentality helps keep your motivation levels up. Very organic atmosphere where, I have walked up to the CRO and suggested an idea and we talked about it for 15-20 minutes before he decided to pass it off to a team to start forming and potentially implementing. Show up, work hard, and you are rewarded much better than most places. You are trusted to be responsible and on task, goals are high but definitely achievable and they support you superbly to help you rising to the occasion.

    Cons

    Can't wear tennis shoes. No mohawks allowed. They stock coffee but not tea.

    Advice to Management

    Stock tea in the break room!

    Pros

    DiscoverOrg is growing like wildfire! In just the 1o months I have been here i have seen huge growth in DiscoverOrg and as a result have had the opportunity to grow with in the company myself. You cant go wrong if you are looking to join a market leader with lots of room to grown and advance!

    Cons

    Life at DiscoverOrg is very fluid and always changing. If change makes you uncomfortable then this could be a challenge

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

    Pros

    -Great atmosphere the people you work with are all great
    -This company rewards hard work. I have not had an experience where I was recognized for the work I put in everyday like I am here. I was given an award, promoted (given a raise), given a raise, promoted again (and given another raise) and I have only been here a year. If this keeps up I'll be the CEO in no time. I also have no college education and no previous skills in my position when I started but they took me in and kept giving me chances to succeed. Heck, the CEO walked by one day and spent a couple minutes talking to me, he knew my name and he cared what I had to say! I can honestly say this is a rewarding place to work.
    -The company has values. We stopped using uber because of an ethical conflict of interest and I find that super respectful

    Cons

    This company is not perfect. No company is, but the biggest problem here is how fast things are growing and changing. Sometimes things happen faster than it seems we are prepared for them to. However everyone working here is smart and flexible and things get sorted out before you know it.
    Second thing is there is a disconnect between the research department (located on the 8th floor) and the rest of the company (who are mostly on the 9th floor).
    I would have to say that most of this disconnect is simply a result of the separation of floors and is not intended whatsoever. Some ideas have been put into place to amend the disconnect but not enough to make a huge difference.
    Oh and parking is the pits - no good parking options but the CEO keeps working to find a solution.

    Advice to Management

    Go a little easier on the 8th floor.
    Give them more reasons to come to the 9th floor and get to know people or vice versa.
    Buy that empty lot across the street.
    But mostly keep doing what you're doing and keep promoting from within I think it's working out for us.

    I have been working at DiscoverOrg full-time

    Pros

    - Lots of support for training and development
    - Management is open to constructive criticism
    - Goals are lofty, but not at all unobtainable
    - Roadmap for moving up is clear

    Cons

    - Not really a con, but while the energy and expectations for growth match that of a startup, the amenities are not (no ping pong tables, beer on tap, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    We are so focused on growth right now that there are some bandwidth issues. Growth is important, but it shouldn't be at the expense of the teams that new hires typically start on.

    "Desiree is AMAZING!"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at DiscoverOrg full-time

    Pros

    I am not a former employee, but I was offered a position. I wanted to make sure to mention that their Talent Acquisition Specialist Desiree is amazing to work with!! She is very transparent about the job opportunity I was applying for. She was there to guide me every step of the way and make sure this would be a good fit. I recommend reaching out to her if you are considering an opportunity with DiscoverOrg, she will clear any doubts you have about the job.

    Cons

    You're missing out if you haven't spoken to Desiree.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose this employee.

    Pros

    DiscoverOrg has a great employee culture and works to maintain not only their customer satisfaction, but their employee satisfaction as well. They take the time to listen to concerns. They promote people from within and make it clear they want their employees to succeed and provide many benefits from health insurance to discounts at places like Columbia Sportswear.

    Cons

    The environment is rapidly changing and growing at DiscoverOrg, so one must be prepared to change pace!
