    Pros

    Start up environment, active in change and new ideas, proactive management, great commission structure. The hours are excellent too and not stressful.

    Cons

    Inferior platform compared to competition, hard sell but doable. There was high turnover when I started due to improper training but have seemed to solve that issue.

    Advice to Management

    Develop new features to our platform and keep ahead of the competition.

    Working for Ekomi is absolutely amazing. I was an intern here for a few months and I was treated very kindly with respect

    Advice to Management

    So far, the things that I learned from Ekomi have been beneficial for me. I have no complaints. The management is great.

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

    Pros

    Innovative and positive environment, support from Managers is decent. Pay is ok and incentives and commission structure is attractive in first 90 days

    Cons

    3 months in I expect a little more structure and support, Technology in the work environment is quite horrendous,

    Advice to Management

    Communicate collaboratively and more effectively, drop the paper trails and use the CRM for data entry, spend the necessary time and money on generating quality leads and chromebooks??? Really??? Training on CRM from Managerial level down and show commission structure inside of two weeks instead of waiting for employees to second-guess their finances down the road.

    I have been working at Ekomi full-time

    Pros

    If you are good at cold calling and Sales force you will do well here, you are selling ratings and reviews solution.

    Cons

    Not really too much to say here, I had a over all good experience here. There were some small internal problems, but eKomi is new in the US, so that is standard. (There are big in the UK)

    Advice to Management

    Work on training, there is a lot to learn.

    Pros

    Close to the metro line

    Cons

    Boring repetitive work for very little pay which has been recently restructured to allow for even less pay. The company is heading in all different directions with more managers than employees resulting in no cohesion whatsoever and multiple fractures in the standard order of procedure. Consultants where brought in at one point however all recommendations seem to have been ignored.

    I have been working at Ekomi (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I can't find any pro at all unfortunately. I actually feel bad for the founder as they do offer great product. But too bad, the management is so bad here.

    Cons

    The office is located in DTLA near where all the homeless people hang out, they don't have real phone system, using Google voice to make calls. And rent a cosharing space. They hire people using 1099 so they don't have to offer you any benefits, even though during the hiring process they promised benefit. No one last more than 3 months here. Good luck!

    Advice to Management

    You guys are reviews company, but clearly you can't review how bad your management is. No one is happy here, and with the new manager o board, trying to micro manage everyone, it just making things from bad to worst.
