    I have been working at OtterBase full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    OtterBase prides itself on the balance between work and personal time! With that being said, there is a plethora of team bonding activities, workplace events and good times. Almost everyone that works at OtterBase is genuinely awesome and welcoming, too. This is also a great company for recent college graduates looking to plant their stake in the workforce-ample opportunities for financial growth!

    Cons

    Staffing can be a grind but OtterBase employees are always willing to extend a helpful hand when needed!

    I have been working at OtterBase full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Incredible culture, great people to work with, and even a better boss/ ownership to work for. You get in what you put out. You can make yourself a star here. I have brought 2 friends into the company, they love it. I have been blessed to meet even more from working here.

    Cons

    with a smaller company, there are less " frills" than with a larger corporation, but the compensation and commission structure reward high performers in a great way. I am thankful for that. Work hard to live well, and chase your out of office dreams.

    I have been working at OtterBase full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working at OtterBase in Lansing, MI for nearly 5 months and couldn't be happier. I was a little nervous about leaving a position that I had held for 7 years, but the OtterBase family welcomed me in with open arms. I am seeing true success in my role and am already looking forward to what the future holds for me as I continue to grow with OtterBase. My co-workers are helpful, reassuring and encouraging and fill each day with laughter and fun. The managers have an open door policy and are always offering words of support and guidance. OtterBase encourages success and positivity, and I am thrilled to be a part of such a great company.

    Cons

    As with any recruiting role, there are ups and downs. Fortunately for me, the employees working at OtterBase are great at providing support on those days that are a little more difficult.

    Advice to Management

    The Lansing management team is AWESOME! They really do try to guide and support the recruiters so they can see success early on. Having their continuous support is a huge part of why so many of the employees love working here and it's why I love working here.

    Pros

    Simply, the culture. Even with 7 locations, you get to know and create friendships with coworkers in many other offices. Very helpful management, but they know how to push you to do better! AMAZING training program.

    Cons

    Recruiting in general can be a rollarcoaster of ups and downs.

    Pros

    Great culture and awesome people that are really team focused. Recruiting is both challenging and very rewarding in that you get out what you put in with effort. The base salary along with the incentive based commission structure really provides a great opportunity to earn much more than other starting jobs out of college. We also have a lot of fun celebrating our milestones... I highly recommend it!

    Cons

    Recruiting is hard work and it takes some time to build the necessary relationships with candidates but the upside is well worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do and stay connected. I love it when I get the recognition phone call or email from the executive team...it means a lot that you take the time to know and recognize us when appropriate.

    I worked at OtterBase full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    For someone coming right out of college this a great company. Good culture, fun work environment, CRM exposure, sales cycle experience, telephone and email training. Alot of people have worked there for a long time- a clear indicator that they are happy. For me, coming in at a higher level I was confined to the talent around me.

    Cons

    Seemed to be a disconnect between regional offices and owners. I heard someone who had left before I got there, was the man for the job.
    If you don't buy into the cool-aid this company isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    Nice job getting rid of poor leaders, keep up the good work taking care of the long term employees.

    - Flexibility in your day, your strategy and career progression depending on what's important to you.
    - Teammates that actually care about your success. You won't find a cut throat staffing environment here.
    - Executive team that is open to new ideas, suggestions and change when needed.

    Cons

    - Staffing, in general, is always going to have a rollercoaster element no matter what company you are working with.

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to listen to the employees about changes they would like to see and ideas that they are brining to the table.
