    I have been working at Ontraport full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - If you communicate your career goals to your supervisor, ONTRAPORT is amazing at making them happen. You have to be motivated and want to do the work to get there, but they for sure hold up their end of the bargain and more.
    - The 1/2 day Fridays make it feel like a three-day weekend every week
    - Catered breakfast, lunch and snacks save so much time and money every day
    - The location is amazingly beautiful
    - They hire some of the nicest people you'll ever meet
    - They listen to feedback and do what they can to constantly improve

    Cons

    - Salaries are improving for sure, but still sometimes feel a little low (balanced out by all the benefits, though)
    - No dogs

    I worked at Ontraport full-time

    Pros

    Lots of energy and talk, and actually a lot of work getting done.
    Very supportive work environment as long as you're trying.
    Good for younger/new employees.

    Cons

    Benefits were mediocre:
    Health ins was miserable.
    No retirement contribution.

    Career-wise, not good for those with more experience. CEO only allows projects that come from his brain, outside ideas are not welcome, even though you are expected to come up with them. If your project idea isn't exactly in line with his, it will be killed. Very frustrating experience.

    As a company, it's probably not going anywhere. Too much competition and although Ontraport tech is good, it's impossible to stand out in the crowd.

    The President isn't a terrible person, but she has no positive impact on the company and has a history of running off women she perceives as a threat to her. Nobody knows what she does, and the CEO constantly has to remind employees she is worthy of the position.

    Because a majority of the employees are younger, there is a prevalent party culture (some might view that as a Pro, I guess).

    Advice to Management

    Trust upper-level employees to move the product forward, you don't need to control every aspect of it.

    I worked at Ontraport full-time

    Pros

    -opportunities to grow and try different roles
    -great people and fun work environment

    Cons

    -Salaries are not competitive.
    -I love that there are many women in management positions, but there is a serious lack of racial diversity across the entire company. HR needs to be more proactive about hiring people who are not friends of current employees.

    I have been working at Ontraport full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ontraport provides good benefits, engaging workplace, and awesome culture. If you are passionate and motivated, there are definitely opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    I have not personally had any experience with this, but some people mention conflicts with supervisors affecting their career growth and daily quality of life. All of the managers that I know seem to be good and fair people, so I take this with a grain of salt. Also, we used to have awesome company trips, but we have not had one for a while.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the trips! This was an awesome benefit, and it is sorely missed. Also, 401k matching is the biggest thing missing from the benefits.

    I have been working at Ontraport full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ontraport is staffed by bright, energetic and wonderful people. With almost constant updates on facilities and teams and communications, it's very lively, fun and dynamic. You never hear "because that's the way we've always done it", which is the downfall of most businesses that have been around as long as they have. In a word, it's fresh!

    Cons

    With amazing food being served all day long, you have to either gain will power or a workout regimen!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work!
