    I worked at Outsell (California) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Virtual Office
    Great colleagues - co-workers are intelligent, friendly and helpful
    Some of the clients are wonderful to work with

    Cons

    - Senior management seems to have lost all touch with reality
    - Senior Management interact with the company in a harsh manner bordering on cruel and abusive
    - Senior management have no sense of where their value lies - neither in terms of their people (who actually does what) or their products (how the work is actually done)

    Advice to Management

    Quit being so mean. You'll get sued for it one day. Spend some time remembering where your truly value lies both in terms of your people and your products

    I have been working at Outsell (California) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Virtual office environment, talented and smart colleagues, interesting market & clients

    Cons

    Founder owned company run by husband & wife who blame everyone but themselves - employees, technology, even clients - for things that don't go the way they believe they should. Lack of coherent strategy, emphasis all on sales rather than product development and infrastructure. Some senior management use humiliating, abusive and demeaning language and tactics with more junior employees. Overall feeling of instability which is ok in a start-up but not in a company that's been around for over a decade.

    Advice to Management

    Sell and get out in whatever way you can - you've had a good run, time to move on, take respnsibility, and stop abusing your employees.
