      Pros

      Vision, energy, dedication of leadership and team. Internal growth and transformation positioning company for success in a changing environment.

      Cons

      Hard work, fast pace - not a downside if you thrive in that environment.

      Pros

      The leadership has completely overturned several times over the years. New leadership now will be different from prior leadership.

      Cons

      It was a terrible experience. The leadership now is new and may be better.

      Pros

      Remote work allowed, awesome location for headquarters

      Cons

      Not much room for advancement even if they say there is, low pay for expected hours of work/client requests, low employee retention, work can get stagnant and you can become bored.

      Pros

      - Bagel Fridays (lol) - Fun team - Great office and views - Team events/happy hours

      Cons

      10 years ago, Fishbowl was the premier source of email marketing for the restaurant industry. Fast forward to a tiny booth at NRA and a company on the brink of collapse, and here you have Fishbowl today. If you are looking for a sales role, look elsewhere. Employees across all departments are being cut weekly, the product does not function, and a change of executive team every year makes a bad situation worse. The ever-changing compensation plans, sub-par product/service and shady C-level promises lead me to give Fishbowl Marketing a two thumbs down.

      Pros

      Free bagels on Friday’s Nice view to the Potomac Cool co-workers

      Cons

      You don’t get paid commission if you’re in sales (since June) Too much to write for cons.. If you’re in sales that’s what you are motivated by. Finance and management are always coming up with excuses for commission to not pay you (hence they change commission structure every month). -Please look at other companies - Don’t know any other department that enjoys coming into work ( every day feels like Monday with Hangover here) -Every competitor beats us because of innovation and cost - Every new year we have a new CEO with fellow companion with strategy and nothing ever gets done if something does, it’s a domino affect for the worse - Saved myself to save you. DON’T SAY YOU NEVER READ THIS!

      Great to Start, but move on quick

      Pros

      - New CEO taking it to a new more positive direction - Overall focus is on client sucess - Good work/life balance if you make that a priority - Great stepping stone to other companies - Possibility of remote

      Cons

      - Not much upward mobility outside of account management/services - High turnover among employees, hence why promotions are plenty to fill in gaps - Pay is average, your starting salary will be your salary unless you get a promotion. 10% increase at most for promotions unless you can leverage two departments against one another.

      Pros

      Management is flexible, especially with working remotely. Current CEO has a good plan in place moving forward and is very honest and transparent with employees.

      Cons

      Not much room for growth, job is stagnant after a while. Company has downsized a lot, the company culture and attitude has shifted as a result.
