    I have been working at MemoryBlue full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    MemoryBlue is by far one of the best places I he worked! I transitioned from the service industry where I worked for far to long and everyone from upper management to my Dm welcomed me with open arms. Memoryblue has one of the best training programs I have ever be apart of and all my sales success has been because of it. If you are new to sales or looking to start a sales Career I would highly recommend Memoryblue. Outside...

    Cons

    Sales isn’t for everyone, but those people who take the training seriously will be able to spring board their career, compared to the 2-4 years they would take to get the same experience.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! From top down Memoryblue has things cooking right now. They are growing exponentially with their 4th office opening shortly. Keep up the great work, looking forward to seeing where Memoryblue is in 10 years!

    I worked at MemoryBlue full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My name is Jacob Nelson and during my time at memoryBlue, I truly was exposed to a vast amount of knowledge in the Tech industry. At first, I was not sure I wanted to be involved with sales, but after a few weeks at memoryBlue I quickly learned how much I loved tech sales. Management is very attentive and willing to help you in whatever way possible. I would highly recommend memoryBlue to anyone who wants an opportunity...

    I worked at MemoryBlue full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If it weren’t for memoryBlue, I wouldn’t be at my current company today. The experience you can put in your resume here can help you get a better SDR or inside sales gig at a reputable Silicon Valley tech company if you tough it out here half a year and make a switch.

    Cons

    This job is not for everyone - particularly not for people with high anxiety or people who feel uncomfortable at a non ethical company. During my time here, I saw immature and unprofessional management, cheating, and many of my colleagues never being paid their promised bonuses. This behavior came from the top down. It really depends on what client you have as to what your experience will be here. Some people will fly...

    Advice to Management

    Despite what management will say, you will NOT fail if you leave memoryBlue before your contract ends. Most of my colleagues have already promoted to AEs at amazing Bay Area tech companies, from Fortune 500 to some of the biggest name tech companies around. Instead of trying to scare people into staying so you can keep billing the clients, make an environment that actually encourages people to want to stick around, and...

    I worked at MemoryBlue full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - The culture is amazing. I never knew it was possible to love your first sales job and be excited to go to work everyday - Bi-annual trip incentive. - memoryBlue is the perfect stepping stone into your sales career and they do a great job networking you into tech

    Cons

    -Job may be harder than what you expect. But you are rewarded for the work you put in.

    Advice to Management

    This is the best job you can get to get your foot in the door with sales. The managers/directors do such a great job ramping you up and setting expectations. Keep doing what you are doing and continue to give feedback to the SDRs to get them to their goals. Thank you Dot and Nimit for a great 4 months :)

    I worked at MemoryBlue full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    To be fair you meet SOME cool people here at the Austin location, but outside of hanging out and partying with coworkers there really aren’t many pros But then again, MOST sales jobs have a lot of cool people So is that really a pro?

    Cons

    College grads STAY AWAY! I know that you may be scared and want to jump on any job that gives you a chance (I’ve been there) but BE PATIENT, Austin is a great city, there are plenty more opportunities that are much better, I promise, just hold on! That being said, their training program is HORRIBLE! And their training is advertised as being phenomenal. As far as I’m concerned that is false advertising, as they still...

    I worked at MemoryBlue full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had an excellent experience at this company. I was given an opportunity to work with and get hired by an awesome client - an opportunity that I certainly would not have had otherwise. My manager was an excellent fit for me. Hands off, but always available to talk. I'd also like to note that both my manager and upper management were very accommodating when I was struggling with mental health issues. This was truly...

    Cons

    Your experience may vary. I was fortunate enough to be placed with two excellent clients and a manager who was a perfect fit for me. My time at memoryBlue would have gone very differently if I had been placed with a manager who wasn't as willing to work with me or if I had been placed with a different client. memoryBlue works with a lot of startups and every SDR, essentially, works for one (or two) of them. Obviously,...

    Advice to Management

    You have clearly been making a concerted effort to rectify the cultural issues that were present at the company when I started my employment. For those unaware, a simple Google search will reveal what I'm alluding to, but know that they are trying to make it a better, more welcoming place to all individuals. It's not yet perfect, but no company is. You guys have some excellent, ethical people working for you (especially...

    I worked at MemoryBlue full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -If you're in their "favorites" you tend to do well. Or if you luck out by being given an easy client. Not all clients are created equal, and often have unrealistic expectations. -Good gateway sales gig, easy enough to get hired -I had a good clients at first, so things went well for me -Can have great opportunities, but completely dependent on client

    Cons

    -Management can often be petty, and blatant favoritism is shown -Often top performers aren't necessarily the hardest working, just on the best accounts -Watched them actively screw over multiple veteran employees from getting positions they deserved for both in-house and clients -Saw them try and screw people out of bonuses CONSTANTLY, after the end of the month changing quoting (happened at least 3 times in the time...

    Advice to Management

    -Be consistent, don't change quota all willy-nilly -Don't hire people who are "money hungry" like you want, if you're going to try and take away their money. -Dont promote people to management due to sales records. A good sales person =/= a good manager.

    This company is an excellent start for many young professionals trying to make a break into the high-tech sales industry.

    Cons

    Not too much to be completely honest. If anything, I believe that memoryBlue should take the liberty to be a little more selective in their process and try to ensure that the new hires they are taking on are FULLY ONBOARD with the idea that this will be a CHALLENGE. I get the feeling that some of the people who may have not enjoyed their time here as much did not fully understand that this job was supposed to be a challenge...

    Advice to Management

    Nothing much other than feel free to be more selective in who you hire on and feel free to double check and make sure that people are on board with the bigger picture of what you guys are trying to accomplish.
