What people are saying about Fishbowl Marketing
a month ago
Have a Doordash interview coming up. Looked at fishbowl and the concensus seems to be that the interview process is terrible and one should avoid DD. I also have a couple of other interviews, so I want to focus only on those firms that are serious and not there to waste a candidate's time. Anyone interviewed with DD care to chime in? Heavily leaning against going through the DD interview process which has a case study. Folks have alluded to candidates being ghosted post submission..

I just joined Fishbowl, so I’m not sure if this is the right forum for folks who are job searching, but I’m looking for positions in diversity, equity and inclusion as well as human resources. I have over 20 years of experience and just recently began going the route of DEI which I love. Does anyone know of any positions out there for an experienced seasoned HR and DEI professional? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

Fishbowl is an exciting place to work and I have enjoyed the time that I’ve spent here. Almost immediately after starting I had the opportunity to work on interesting and impactful projects and the pace hasn’t stopped since. The executives are strong leaders who are approachable and committed to the success of the organization. My coworkers are intelligent, highly capable and hardworking people, which makes it fun to come to work There has been a lot of change over the last 2 years, and while that may have been challenging for some, I think the course correction was crucial to the company’s success. As the industry evolves, these changes are what will allow FB to remain competitive. The product has seen a major overhaul with significant functionality improvements that will be crucial in order for FB to maintain leadership in the space. The results can be seen in the interest Fishbowl is gaining in the market by increasingly larger customers. Over the last year, they have landed record setting deals and realized significant growth. As the product continues to evolve this will continue to accelerate. Fishbowl is already a leader in restaurant marketing analytics, however the new product improvements will allow them to push into new verticals and continue to grow. I’m very happy with my experience here and excited to be part of a cutting edge company that is innovating and growing rapidly.
Typical growing pains of an organization that is evolving and implementing a new strategic vision. This should be expected for a company at this stage of its growth and in the end will be worth it.

They hire good people - all of my peers were fantastic. Also, bagel Fridays. They were a great place to work the first few months I was there!
-Management isn't concerned about the workload and day to day. When someone would leave (which would happen frequently), they would put accounts on your plate without asking if you could handle the extra work, say it was temporary, and then the clients were never actually moved from your roster. -Regular reorganizations, I had 6 different manager transitions in less than a year. -They work off of billable hours, so you had to track every minute of your time on client work. This is a time consuming task in itself, since you need to log your hours in a system . If you ever logged less than a 40 hour work week (so no lunch, no bathroom breaks, no socializing included) you would then have to explain to your manager why you didn't track a full week. -Instead of hiring more people or distributing raises to support the growing business, they outsource work to India where work isn't always executed accurately or to par that the consultant would like. A majority of the time it was more inconvenient than convenient to lean on this team and pass off work. -It is impossible to take a vacation without having a client or a manager get in touch with you - I've never worked somewhere where it was so hard to unplug. I regularly had to sign online on nights, weekends, as well as on vacation.8

I have been so delighted to work for a company who are at the cusp of delivering may new product innovations in the markplace. The roadmap is filled with really interesting things that will change how restaurants handle their marketing efforts. My team in product and development really get things done and work together effectively. As many of you know this is not always the case. There is typically a tension with these groups and somehow Fishbowl has made that tension positive. The people here are caring, welcoming and fun. They seem to always have lots of fun things going on. There was some crazy scavenger hunt not so long ago where the whole company broke into team at the office and put together bikes. Then we rode the bike through the office in a race. I am sure I am not doing this event justice but it was fun and a great team building event. Plus all the bikes were donated to charity. When I first heard about it, I really did not want to go but after I did- I had a blast.
There is never enough time to get everyhting I want to do done. I have a good work life balance but working in a smaller company I end up wearing many hats.

Has the the right angle on the restaurant industry, and if this potential is exploited, it might go places.
- New CEO focused on cutting cost through outsourcing as many jobs as possible; the January layoffs probably won't be the last. - New tech management loves trendy buzzwords and favors half-baked tech because it's "sexy" instead of choosing the right tool for job; this is a gamble that is putting current and future business at risk. - The new management sees employees as means to an end, not as people with opinions and lives, just cogs. - All this has caused mass exodus from the R&D organization (critical in a SAAS company), depleting the company of a huge and vital knowledge base. PS: The positive responses you see here are either so rosy, or so defensive, it's obvious they're from the new leadership (except the founder, who's a great guy, but is regrettably, no longer in charge).33

Once upon a time, Fishbowl was an epicenter of great culture, happy people, and excited clients. People worked hard and were genuinely excited to come to the office--it was like hanging out with your closest friends every day and working towards a common goal. Throw in the occasional office party for holidays, a great view, and bagels every Friday, and it was truly an awesome place to build a career.
I haven't worked at Fishbowl since about a year ago (willingly left when things started to sour). At the time I left, it was evident that the new regime was only invested in a get-rich-quick scheme. They didn't care about any of the people who were there, and immediately let go of a bunch of really strong professionals--many of whom were very accomplished before coming to Fishbowl and will be successful wherever they end up next. Since then, there has been a lot of outsourcing of work to India, and incompetent fat-cats hired to important positions (namely the CTO). If you're thinking about working here, my advice is simple: don't. It will be the worst decision you've ever made.35
