Commercial Customer Service Representative

What’s the best way to have a lack of compensation and incentive conversation in your department? I went above and beyond for years doing extra work, organizations etc and nothing has been reflected in pay. I thought my 5 year was going to finally show something but it did not. I’ve inquired about pay but it’s gotten nowhere.

    Pros

    You know that saying, "tell your boss what he loves to hear and you won't work a day in your life." Or something like that anyways.

    Cons

    Your boss is an unqualified careerist who "made it" and your primary responsibility is to justify his inflated salary. Pay attention to how one-sided your contract is, it's not some perfunctory legal process the actual HR/management philosophy here is to push all risk and accountability off to employees and traders. Don't expect any real support either.

    Pros

    Tons of smart, quirky, fun people. Reasonable hours. Committed to going agile. Company takes integrity seriously.

    Pros

    Nice workplace, good people, good management, strong executive team and board, compelling strategy and vision. Exciting but not crazy, professional yet fun, challenging but not overwhelming. I like working here and feel like my contributions are meaningful, valued and recognized.

    Cons

    It can be a bit disorganized at times, and having multiple offices in various time zones introduces communication challenges. Communications equipment needs improvements, especially in light of how critical it is since we rely on remote communication so much.

    Thanks for the feedback. Totally agree on communication challenges. We've been working hard on improving that. We've partnered with Starleaf for video and Slack for messaging. Hopefully you're seeing an improvement. Starleaf is best when there's an 'install' like we have in San Francisco. We're working to get native installs in every office so this communication issue is reduced. Now if we can just solve that pesky time-zone thing... ;)
