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

    Pros

    Great product, great people. Readers love Patch and can't wait to tell you all about it. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    New sales management makes promises about new products to come but never deliver, yet goals still doubled and compensation stays the same.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up before your entire top team performers are gone and you are trying to get newbies trained and meet Wall Street's expectations.

    I worked at Patch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work from home, flexible hours

    Cons

    The new sales management is why I left this company.
    EXTREMELY high sales goals. If you don't reach your goals two months consecutively, you are FIRED. Only 10-15% of sales people met their goals.

    Advice to Management

    You forgot that your EMPLOYEES are your resources. In 2013, you have lost your focus and only care about your bottom line.
