I have been working at Gigya full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Pay is fabulous from SDRs to Account Exce to client services side probably due to the fact that churn is obnoxiously high & they try compensate for middle management being unable to keep any kind talent around for long.

Cons

There is no real business coming through the company just quick cut and run deals made my middle management. Sales team spams the entire b2b sector shoving a dreadful pitch down people's throat to the point of harassment. The software isn't a game changer and management (if you can call it that) is a complete joke. There are young kids managing other kids and the lack of professionalism is appalling. If you take yourself and your career seriously, chose a different company to associate yourself with. They won't fire anyone however so if your lazy, unmotivated or just stupid...but good at faking your metics in salesforce this is a great place to be.

Advice to Management

If the CEO and management could successfully get anyone on board with the mission, churn might be lower. Problem is, the mission changes every three weeks. Lack of real leaders has left this start up stagnant.

    Pros

    People are energetic and supportive.

    Cons

    Corporate sales have limited accounts and opportunity, so many of the AE's are put at an extreme disadvantage.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways of keeping on company talent because there is too high of turnover.

    Pros

    Company hires only the smartest and most hungry, and most are grads from top colleges or proven producers. The pay is excellent and the commission structure both fair and top-drawer. Workplace morale is extremely high and everyone sits close by each other and interacts frequently and without complaint. Management is outstanding from the CEO on down, and I've never worked for such a committed sales executive team. Your goals are well set and achievable, and you'll never feel lost or like you're lacking support. Internal promotions are the norm, and people are given the opportunity to move into whatever department they like over and above outside hires.

    Cons

    Turnover at the sales development level is a little high, but that comes with the territory of hiring only the best. They'll always be pushing to do more. There are concerns at the sales level that the marketing team isn't big enough or pushing hard enough, but that's the norm at most companies.

    Advice to Management

    You've experience enormous growth, but please don't change too much!
