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

    Pros

    The strength of EdgeRock is their seniority. Both Josh and Jay Hulme, David Diaz, and Nick Clement are exceptional resources in helping you learn and grow at EdgeRock. Excellent advice, wealth of experience, and proven success in the industry are things they bring to the table. Having access to them is critical to succeeding there and a major draw for staying. They were my draw to the company and are proof that the process works.

    I'm exceedingly grateful for the opportunity to work there, however for a shor ttime. Their process most certainly works if you put the time in, listen to senior management (both delivery and sales), and are smart enough to both ask questions and learn from them.

    Once you've proven you can pay attention, show up on time, and begin earning money for the company, you afforded and exceptional amount of flexibility, comraderie, and positive feedback. In short, it does feel great to succeed there - especially given the casual, but results driven atmosphere. I franklt left because I was given a better offer elsewhere, but not for lack of success. I would recommend people work here if you can make it through the training and immediately have access to the right members of senior staff to guide your development.

    Cons

    Lackluster training, 8-5:30 workday, little to no benefits besides generous commission structure.

    Advice to Management

    Training needs to be gutted and rebuilt from the ground up. The staff are doing the best they can, but they are not training professionals. Reading off of a powerpoint for 8+ hours a day is not pedgogically viable. People 100% will not learn. There are studies done on this. The money needs to be spent for interactive, scenario-based training that is conducted - or at the very least curated - by senior staff. Make someone an offer they can't refuse to be a training advisor. Any of the people mentioned would be a welcome asset to a training that saw me trying to hit KPI's for the first three months, but not actually learn how to sell.

    Additionally, the office hours are cumbersome. I understand that sales is 100% about volume, but a better-educated and loyal sales stuff is significantly more worthwhile than the extra hour that is required of the sales staff. Knowing a company cares about your well-being and work life balance instills loyalties in a job that can be a grind at times.

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

    Pros

    Weekly pay and friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    Extremely difficult branching into new technologies. If you're a new hire placed on the Peoplesoft, SAP, or Oracle team, you'll make money. If not, don't expect to earn anything. Sales relies on the delivery team and the delivery team relies on sales. See the problem? When there aren't any open requirements in a new technology, conversations become extremely awkward. The CRM system goes down for at least an hour each week, losing you a total of over a week's work per year. Prepare for long hours too, it's an 8-5:30 shift, but 8-5 on Fridays.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic. If you want to expand into new technologies, don't expect one person assigned to each new technology to penetrate that market.

    Pros

    Great commission structure, decent sales base salary, monthly/quarterly bonus opportunities, free drinks and snacks, fun company socials, good people

    Cons

    Growing companies sometimes have growing pains. No 401k match, need a more clear defined career path.

    Advice to Management

    Make a decision and stick to it, eliminate change

    Pros

    They don't micro manage, and there is potential to make good money. Management was very nice and they send you on corporate trips to Boston every year.

    Cons

    Sold a better opportunity than it was, They don't really have a different process from other staffing agencies, some cheezy h.r. pep rally stuff when someone makes a sale.

    Advice to Management

    Be more up front and involved in coaching. Drop the cheesy pep rally antics and don't play favorites.

    The comission structure is very rewarding and the environment is very relaxed. You have the ability to work with Fortune 1000 companies and put very large contracts in place. Life/Work balance

    I have been working at EdgeRock Technology Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paycheck. A couple of good people. Not far from South Station. Great opportunity to experience what you would rather be missing out on. Occasional meals, gatherings, and unlimited supply of drinks. Confortable chair.

    Cons

    Not a typical 9-5 by any stretch of the imagination. No diversity. Thinkpads. Lacks healthy snacks. Onboarding was ridiculous. Suffers from terminal niceness. Cliquish. Turnover/revolving door. Attrition rate. Unrealistic expectations. Unrealistic goals. Unrealistic hype about what "you could make, 6 figure this and blah blah blah." The empty desk you just took was occupied by someone just like you not very long ago. Think about that. Do yourself a favor and don't bother keeping it warm. People don't bother learning your name. Having business cards is pointless when everything is done over the phone, the cars are just a way of attempting to make you feel welcome and part of something great. Not. Also you don't get out what you put in. Micro managed. Big brother-like. Long hours. Certain people come and go as they please and tend to come late and go early yet hold you to a double standard. Office politics. Know-it-alls. Cyclical process of recruiters relying on CSM's for leads and vice versa and neither has a leg to stand on. Cynical people. Thinly veiled friendliness. Lack of sincerity in practices. CRM system is lackluster.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure because management is constantly implementing bad ideas. Mismanaged. Finger pointing. Culture of denial. Recognition is trivial and lacks merit. Favoritism. Fraternizing. Conflicts of interest left and right. No room for growth. No room to breathe. Feedback isn't constructive. Glass ceiling. 20% of the people work while the rest ~80% leech off their hard work. Inc 500 in 2013...and now? Wake up, you aren't a brand, you're delusional if you think you're household name in the ERP space.
