    I have been working at Effective Web Solutions full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Our bosses spoil us with the paid time off which increases when you hit a certain amount of years and does no include the sick time they give us. We are also fortunate enough to get so many paid holidays off in including the day after Thanksgiving and the Christmas Eve which many employers do not allow you to take off. Our HR department is so quick to handle issues and makes sure it is a safe and fun environment for...

    Pros

    -Caring / Understanding Bosses. Understand that I have children and things happen but don’t hold me to it so long as I’m keeping up with my tasks. -they even provide a full closet of free SNACKS for the work week I mean who does that? -incentives for employees to be a better / more productive team, even employee of the month benefits $250 each month! How cool! -bonuses around holidays- I’ve never experienced a company...

    Couldn’t think of a single con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! I’m so proud to see how far this company has come and the success over all. We continue to improve our team for the better and usually the bitter responses are due to a case like that, here’s to the best production & sales team in 2019!

    Pros

    Wes is an amazing boss, kind a caring, and always goes out of his way to make his employees feel valued.

    Cons

    The sales team. They are basically awful. Demanding and rude, always thinking their sale is priority without thinking twice nor caring about some elses work load. They want you to lie to people just to get them to sign a contract, and then expect you to deal with the brunt of it all when they don't deliver. Unfortionately, they are so bad they almost undo how awesome of a boss Wes is.

    Advice to Management

    Put a leash on your sales people...maybe a muzzle too.

    Pros

    Management is not only dedicated to the success of their customers, but also to their employees as well.

    Cons

    There are no "cons" that I can see.

    Advice to Management

    From the day I started working here, I knew something was different about this company. The management is amazing, they encourage their employees to work together and be innovative. They always reward you for hard work and dedication. EWS is a true example of what it means to take care of your employees. All my co workers are great, we really are here to help one another succeed and work together to make sure our clients...

    Pros

    EWS is a great place to work, the management and other employees have always made me feel valued and respected. They treat their customers great and truly care about the work they provide. The owners are working non-stop but still take the time to check in and see how their employees are doing.

    Cons

    So far I have no complaints what so ever. Effective Web Solutions has been great to me and I look forward to my future with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! You rock!

    I have been working at Effective Web Solutions full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Company is constantly striving to do the right thing for their clients and employees. It is a super competitive business and I think this company is leaps and bounds ahead of other internet marketing companies. Its a smaller company (approx. 20 employees) and with that are a few perks. Typically ownership will randomly buy lunch, starbucks, etc. and they always provide snacks and drinks during the days. Also if we...

    Cons

    It has been difficult to strike a balance between business owners wanting low prices which means that they can't hire the amount of staff that they would like to. The work load is pretty heavy for each person but its good to be busy!

    Advice to Management

    It looks like we are going in the right direction with the new content writers and link builders we have put on staff recently. Keep putting one foot in front of the other. Maybe we can raise our prices a little to afford a couple more employees in the near future. Thanks for caring about each employee!

    I worked at Effective Web Solutions full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    There were some good co-workers and there was a lot of energy at first, like most startups, and like most startups they were never able to deliver on promises made to employees, there was a lot of turnover.

    Cons

    Managment/Owners came from yellow pages, didn't really understand SEO or the Internet and muddled their way through to profitability by selling a lot of contracts. Basically, the whole operation "evolved" into a link buying shop. Heard through the grapevine that Panda & Penguin updates were pretty brutal. They also hosted clients on GoDaddy, all of them. I LOL'd when I heard all the sites went down when GoDaddy was on...

    I worked at Effective Web Solutions

    Pros

    This is a family business in marketing. They strive to help businesses utilize getting onto the first page of google in the organic section and do so successfully. I enjoyed all of my co-workers and the collaborative effort to succeed is contagious.

    Cons

    Pay could be better, but the company is a few years old and there is opportunity for growth, and promotion. Also, sales is commission only so be ready to hustle hard.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees a little more, and everything else is great! A salary would be nice.
