    Former Employee - Account Operations Specialist in Glen Allen, VA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent CEO, fun events, casual attire, young company, easy commute, good benefits, attractive office, free concert tickets, volunteer opportunities available

    Cons

    8:30am-5:30pm, no recognition if not in sales, poor middle managers, undefined career path, little to no useful personal development opportunities, unrewarded overtime, no work-from-home option, obvious favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Senior management is excellent, but middle management is seriously lacking. Middle managers pick favorites and make it obvious to everyone, so whoever is left out of that group is left to weather all of the managers' bad moods. Also, as a whole, there is little room to grow within the company unless you come in doing what you want to do, or if you come in as something other than sales and want to get into sales. Typical of most small companies, the only way to move up at all is if someone leaves/gets fired, and even then it's not likely; although promotions from within do occur, more often than not, external hires seem to take precedence. Only those well-known favorites are likely to be considered for movement into different departments. Sean has really created the foundation for a fantastic work culture and he is great, but there are weak links in the middle who ruin it for a lot of employees.

    Great people
    Decent suite of products
    Decent work/life balance
    Decent compensation
    Fun extracurricular activities
    Generous vacation package
    Nice location

    Cons

    Middle management is so horribly ineffective, inexperienced, and biased it is not even funny.
    Middle management does not stick up for their teams-them first, then team second.
    Typically hire too quickly, then realize they don't have the market or territories to support those hires.Leads to layoffs.
