I worked at Constant Contact full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

You're selling products which really help small businesses market themselves well, so it's nice to come to work at a place where one can believe in what they're bringing to market. Being a publicly-traded company also allows them to offer a pretty competitive benefits package.

Cons

Working for a publicly-traded company means all employees are subject to investor pressure. There is always external pressure to do more. When times are good, investors want to make even more money. When times are not good investors want to know why they're not seeing a return on their investment. The latter led to lots of internal pressure, especially on the employees in my department.

Advice to Management

Don't make Constant Contact a sweatshop. Hire salespeople who have a strong track record and whom you trust, then trust them to do a great job for you. Let them manage their pipeline the way they want and hold them accountable for the results which matter (sales and revenue) and not the ones which don't (call stats).

    Pros

    Great people, culture, leadership. Only reason I left was due to moving out of state. I'll be very lucky to find a place like this to work again.

    Cons

    None that I can think of, really.
