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

    Pros

    You can be assured there will be beer and happy hour on Fridays, fun atmosphere most of the time....

    Cons

    The concept of what you are selling changes almost daily, you are not sure the company will be there week to week. There is a good ole boy mentality on the sales floor. The ones who are performing get fed the leads, so it is a no brainer that they are successful. It can be lucrative but you have to dial for dollars and sell your soul.

    Advice to Management

    Know what you are talking about before you try and train some one... at least be on the phones yourself prior to telling a new employee how to do the job

    Pros

    Employees were like a big family. Even after the merger

    Cons

    Not rehiring former employees who were layed off last year

    Reach out to the employees that got you to where market leader was before the merger.

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

    Pros

    Market Leader gave me a great opportunity to learn software sales and marketing sales techniques. It was a younger sales floor with a lot of energy.

    Cons

    Not a lot of time to take vacations. Not a lot of room for growth within the sales organization and company. Having a young sales floor was fun, but at times it took away from actually doing our jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and try to understand what it is like for them.

    I had the opportunity to start my sales career here. Learned how to sell to Realtors.

    Promote more from within. Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    This is a good place to build your resume for sales experience. A lot of the people are great and the company provides a great location, building, food options, etc.

    Cons

    A very small percentage (about 10%) of sales people actually hit quota and make any decent money. Expectations were not set properly regarding that during the interview process. A number of employees sell dishonestly and lack integrity.

    I have been working at Market Leader full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The product is amazing and really helps real estate agents succeed. Well-defined sales process, plentiful leads, coworkers that really care. Hands-on management style. Growing like crazy - opportunities for advancement and career growth. Many long-term employees (8+ years). New office in Bellevue is beautiful, spacious & close to transit. Company paid insurance, time off, ORCA card, passport card.

    Cons

    Not too many cons except that inside sales is challenging and quotas are monthly. Must enjoy cold calling.

    Pros

    Lots of fairly good sales training. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Expected to work for free and perform additional training activities off the clock. 99% white male sales force. Extremely dysfunctional management style. Dishonest sales techniques encouraged and supported.
    The product itself is sub-par, over-priced and quite non-competitive. Unprofessional sales force.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of your vulnerability for a class action lawsuit based on race and sex discrimination as well as sexual harassment by management.
