Pros

Some of the employees were fun to work with (non-management). Some people would be close and go out after work and socialize.

Cons

Awful leadership, each member of management will act like they care about the company and its employees; but behind closed doors they genuinely don't care. Constantly lied to about how much you were worth in the market. Well below-average salary, below average benefits. Very long hours for some departments. Claim innovation, but are in fact desperately lacking due to zero product leadership. Claim to be a tech company, yet doesn't know the difference from a web developer and a software developer.

Advice to Management

Pay your employees what they deserve. Get REAL product leadership and vision. Hire people for their talent and skills, not their ability to 'fit in'.

    Pros

    Great benefits - 401K matching, free snacks and sodas, bagel Thursdays and even more coming!

    People are warm, helpful and they have integrity, it's not cutthroat and passive aggressive like many companies can be.

    It is extremely diverse - there are people from all walks of life in all departments.

    Great work-life balance

    Everyone you work with is smart and it's a small enough company that it's too visible not to pull your weight and be a team player

    Cons

    This is really only relevant for people who like working at big companies - there isn't a lot of hierarchy, so everyone has a voice versus only certain titles having one as it is a very friendly and collaborative environment. If you are looking to come in and call the shots without input and consideration for all levels of the company, it might not be a good fit for you

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the empathetic leadership and clear business direction, and keep measuring employee engagement, it's working!

    I worked at eshots (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Dress code; 401k matching; location - Chicago loop

    Cons

    Very high turnover! This place is like high school all over again. Company performance has declined exponentially. Consistently losing clients with no new business from Sales in over 12 months. CEO runs business on emotions with a handful of "his favorite" senior management in his ear telling him what to do to meet their individual agendas. Staff overall is unprofessional (for most eshots is their first job) and senior management take zero accountability, are disrespectful and passive aggressive. No career progression and no professional development whatsoever – they don’t care AND they can’t afford it.

    Advice to Management

    Time to go back to the drawing board. Replace your senior management crew that have been there the longest – they are the weakest links and helping to drive the business into the ground with their passive aggressive leadership and personal agendas. Re-evaluate sales team.
