    Incredible Company

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Positive, collaborative culture where teammates really want to help each other succeed -Fantastic new hire training. You'll be set up for success before you're ever on your own and when you're certified, you'll have a team to help you hit the ground running -Leadership is strategic, fair, and trusts employees to do their best work. Great VP of sales who will ensure you have what you need to go above and beyond -Pay is competitive and if you work hard, you can make an insane amount of $. There's no cap so it really just depends how much you want to make. -Wonderful product and new product acquisitions. The company has a ton of potential for continued exponential growth and they have a strong leadership team

    Cons

    -There could be a little more in person all company events, just for fun. The summer sales meeting is epic. One for winter would have been great too.

    Dishonest Management/ Leadership

    Oct 1, 2022 - Anonymous Employee in San Mateo, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I met some of the best people at IXL. For the majority everyone is kind, intelligent, and outstanding,

    Cons

    Like any other company, profit is the goal and hierarchy is the law. There is an obvious lack of leadership and such poor structural organization, that it is hard to believe that the company can even remain functional. I worked at headquarters, in a unique position where I worked and interacted with staff across departments. You can say I was the eyes and ears of the office in San Mateo. During my time there I learned one thing for certain; employees fear the chief of operations. That person's decision making is irrational, insensitive, and narcissistic. IXL needs a better leader...
