    I worked at ON24, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Good location in SF and good PTO

    Cons

    The company does not care for you, and they will let you go even though you put in 10+ hours a day. All the CEO cares about is profit and any means to get there. If you are on the fence, look elsewhere or be prepared.

    Advice to Management

    Show some compassion towards the loyal employees

    I worked at ON24, Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not much pros here. Lunch given and maybe the few good snacks available in the kitchen. A very very select few genuine people in the company.

    Cons

    To start, the company has a lot of internal drama that is apparent from the start your first day there. No clear career path. They tend to hire externally and overlook the talent internally. When they do hire internally they completely disregard performance and have favoritism in every aspect. Most if not all VPs were all brought from a different company and completely try to change things to be a numbers game. Do not...

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring externally, be transparent and stop implementing unnecessary changes that only make things a numbers game. Management style is very old school. Acknowledge that you are a technology company.

    Cons

    Really poor Executive Leadership CEO manages by fear and is proud of it CEO does not empower his executive team to be successful CEO has an ego that is working toward the demise of ON24 I worked for ON24 for a number of years and was let go recently in the latest round of company lay-offs....stuff happens and I understand.

    Advice to Management

    This is a message to the board....Get that man out of the drivers seat. He is going to kill everything great about the company.

      I worked at ON24, Inc. full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Great product with a top support team.

      Cons

      The turn over is unreal at all levels.

        I have been working at ON24, Inc. full-time

        Pros

        A fantastic product with a clear ROI value prop for marketers.

        Cons

        None come to mind, this is a high-growth oriented team. With that come pivots to better position the company in the market.

        Advice to Management

        Continue to explain the strategy pivots along with the market opportunity and you will have the full team on board.

        I worked at ON24, Inc. full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        ON24's webinar platform has a great reputation because it is a great product. There is tremendous value for their clients which means the opportunity to hit sales quotas is always present. Tons of great people make it a fun work environment, excluding management.

        Cons

        Depending on the department you work in and your direct supervisor, it can be an extremely uncomfortable place to work. No equity or 401k matching offered which shows employees are looked at as a number and not an individual.

        Advice to Management

        Trust the people you hire to do the job they were hired for. The rapid turnover that was occurring when I was there made everyone uneasy and made it impossible to feel any semblance of stability, which made it difficult to concentrate solely on the task at hand.

        Pros

        Flexible schedule Product is very good

        Cons

        The Engineering department has a "break-first-then-fix" appreciation mentality. The good employees who sweat it out to bring out the best performing and bug-free code that seldom breaks are rarely, if not never, noticed. This goes all the way to the company executives who only pour accolades on individuals/teams who fixed something that broke. Several engineers who innovated and researched various improvements and enhancements...

        Advice to Management

        Advice to management has always fallen in deaf ears. So, there is nothing that can be mentioned here which is going to improve this department that is filled with folks that have been 8 years or more in the company and are either too lazy to leave or have a lot of stock options and are thus waiting for the day the company goes public.

        I worked at ON24, Inc. full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        Co-workers were very good, management? Not so much...

        Cons

        Biggest issue for me was that the firm doesn't pay vendors on time or per the agreement. Very frustrating when you've made a deal, gotten the services ordered then spend the next few months avoiding calls because management won't pay. Not an isolated case, actually part of their strategy. After not paying for a few months, they then occasionally try to re-negotiate the deal...really poor practice.

        Advice to Management

        Behave like most companies and pay your bills.
