    Pros

    Fully stocked kitchen Coworkers were friendly and the office was a cool setting to be in

    Cons

    The company is set up in a very strange way. Success is definitely not based on merit. It doesn't matter how good you are at sales - unless you are in the inner circle at houzz you will not do well. There is a handful of AE's - out of hundreds in the position - that actually do 'well' and make money. These people are spoon fed leads and are shown as an example to the rest of the company as "what you can become if you work hard". The truth is , with the current perception of the product you are selling, this is next to impossible. The most frustrating part is that managers and other superiors will try and make it out to be your fault if you aren't hitting numbers, and put you on performance plans to "keep you on track for success". I would not recommend anyone who is serious about growing their career in sales into management, or even making good money in sales works at Houzz. The company is a revolving door when it comes to employees, no one stays there more than 1-1.5 years because once you hit that mark you realize exactly what is going on.
