    I worked at ECommerce Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are interested in eCommerce and online marketing, ECommerce Partners allows you to have first hand experience in doing so. Whether on the web or the marketing side of the business, you will manage relationships with many clients, helping them to build/grow their online businesses. The management and those who work at the company truly care about collaborating together to achieve results for clients. The ECommerce Partners team was great and made it a fun place to work. The hours are standard and the company provides lunch once a month and celebrates every birthday.

    Cons

    The benefits (outside of salary) can be better.

    I have been working at ECommerce Partners full-time

    Pros

    Invaluable job experience – personal and professional growth that I can't imagine getting anywhere else. Most job roles span all departments, from marketing to sales, project management and operations, plus functions are both internal and client-facing.

    Cons

    Disorganized management and cultural clashes are exhausting, but again, these add up to important experience for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to have more than one person per job role. People need time to think of the "next big thing."

    Pros

    Hands on experience, there is barely any support which leaves you to figure things out on your own, which somehow turns into a Pro in the long run.

    Cons

    No employee appreciation, no upper level support or encouragement, unethical business practices, profit driven, which leads to a downfall of service to clients.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to run a company from top to bottom, not just open a business for the shear objective of turning a profit. Invest in your employees and your business.

    I worked at ECommerce Partners full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hiring process was quick. The office manager was pleasant and easy to get along with. Several of the office staff were pleasant and made my time there more bearable.

    Cons

    The owner of the company is by a huge margin the worst person I have ever worked for. In the time I worked there, lying to customers was policy. He never missed an opportunity to shortchange his employees and customers alike. Customers were given a very flashy product to hide the fact that back end software was so poorly designed that in the time I was there server break ins were a common occurrence. His "in house" development staff lived in Estonia. This became a problem if an annoyed customer insisted on talking to a developer personally and we were expected to say anything to get them off the phone and not expose the lie that the triple digit hourly rates were going to eastern european developers who he paid in single digit hourly rates. Probably the worst I bore witness to was their attempt to hire a replacement accountant, who strangely did not want to continue working there once he became a CPA. The staffing agency replacement didn't last a month, but gave no explanation for why she left. Her replacement from a accounting temp agency did not last a week. After the agency did not seem willing to send anybody else, he interviewed for direct hires, one of whom walked out of the interview after mere minutes of being there.

    Pros

    Perks were nice for an internship

    Cons

    Office gets pretty noisy at times
    Work got to be repetitive and boring

    Advice to Management

    Need more communication from Upper Management!

    I have been working at ECommerce Partners as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    ECP is a small office; therefore, there is a great opportunity to learn from or pitch ideas to various levels of management. The pace is very quick, and work is always changing. My coworkers were all very competent and helpful, and they were fun to work with, too - a lot of creative minds.

    Cons

    Tempers run high, but mostly this aggressive attitude is to make sure everything is done in the most efficient way.

    I have been working at ECommerce Partners full-time

    Pros

    I came into this position not knowing much about ecommerce, but the open environment and knowledgeable team made it easy to quickly learn and get up to speed with the industry. Upper management is always available to help when there is a question. The general atmosphere is casual and employees are given the space to work independently.

    Cons

    Can get pretty fast-paced at times, which can be overwhelming when you and everyone around you is on overload. Never a dull moment though! Also, the office is open, so can get a little noisy when everyone is on a call. Headphones are a necessity!

    I worked at ECommerce Partners as an intern

    Pros

    The smaller size of ECommerce Partners allows for plenty of exposure to all sides of the business. Fellow employees are friendly and willing to help, and a good effort is made to bring members together often. Communication is highly valued.

    Cons

    If you prove that you're capable, you will be given the commensurate level of work - which is satisfying but at times the ways to approach certain tasks might be better explained.

    Pros

    You'll get direct experience from A to Z in all aspects of ecommerce business. They hold weekly team meetings where you can get a transparent look at where things stand with all sorts of projects - design/development, marketing, and strategy. If you are highly ambitious and results-oriented, and can handle working with deadlines, then you will do well in this fast-paced environment. You'll meet clients in all industries, too. Food, fashion, B2B, etc. and have access to a wealth of knowledge and direct contact with experts in their fields.

    Cons

    You have to be ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work, meet deadlines and get results for your clients. If you're looking for an easy corporate gig where you get to play with your friends on Facebook all day, gain lots of karma commenting on Reddit, or spend your day running your stock ticker while watching the latest episode of the Daily Show on Youtube, then this isn't the place for you. It's an open space environment - no cubicles so everyone pretty much knows what you're up to. It can get a little noisy at times because of this but you get used to it.
