    Pros

    -8 years in business and very stable.
    -Management is super positive, strong at mentoring, does not micromanage at all (unless you're failing your job, which you deserve if you are, frankly).
    -Literally nothing negative to say at all.

    Cons

    -Only CON is a few hiring mistakes, that resulted in these 1-Star reviews from terminated employees that weighed the rest of us contributing staff down.
    -I'm also aware of several negative reviews being complete fabrications from competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at ForceBrain full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tight team composed of mostly technical people (consultants) in Salesforce space, so if you're not technical, you'll learn fast. I learned a lot on the job (lead generation, telemarketing, mass email), which i probably won't learn if i worked at a big company initially.

    The best thing about this job is my manager. He was very hands-on, which enabled me to be self-sufficient in the job very quickly. Colleagues are friendly and helpful, so I got along with everybody well.

    Cons

    Some days can be long and overwhelming esp. when there are issues with projects. When I got hired, there was growing demand, so they hired too many (wrong) people quickly, which caused some internal conflicts. Working in a small team means you have to pull your own weight. No room for slacking off, since everyone will notice. Some people are not pulling their weight, which demoralized a lot of people.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate the entire hiring process to be able to get better people on staff. I admire the management for being hands-on, so keep it up.

    Pros

    Fairly laid back atmosphere when not psychotic.

    Cons

    Senior management attempts to use staff members to make up for their lack of capability. Over committing and 'great ideas' gets them into trouble. Senior management is quick to point fingers at employees to cover for their own inability to operate effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. You can't be laid back and cool one moment and then psychotic the next. Establish a comfortable middle ground and start to take responsibility for your mistakes.
