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

    Pros

    The company fills a need for marketing for people who don't have time to do it themselves. It is helping people and saving them from a lot of the marketing pitfalls I've seen many people fall victim to.

    Cons

    No overtime pay is available for my position

    Advice to Management

    NA

    I worked at OutboundEngine full-time

    Pros

    Always an environment focused on growth and success. Everyone in the company is willing to help you succeed. The opportunity to make 100k + is 100% possible here. Hard work pays off. Work hard play hard mentality.

    Cons

    None what so ever! Great place to be in Austin!

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

    Pros

    The culture is really great. Fun people and very inclusive.
    The atmosphere for the most part was really positive and people are always trying to make sales fun.
    Free snacks all day.
    The company wide events were really cool. (mainly OutboundOutloud)

    Cons

    Work life balance wasn't the greatest.
    Expect to work weekends if you're not hitting your quota right off the bat.
    If you're not super sales minded you won't enjoy this role.
    Doing 200 dials a day can get old really fast.
    Not a great position if you don't like routine.

    Pros

    Product is brilliant
    Strategy for this service to lead the marketplace
    Innovative CEO

    Cons

    Culture
    Mid-Leadership is self centered and bad
    Training and career growth are virtually invisible
    At-Will contract subject to constant change against your favor
    Culture advertised is a front: leadership will smile and lie to your face

    Advice to Management

    reps turnover can be solved with a little bit of empathy and common sense.

    Pros

    Great location, good training for a first time out of college. Management listens to staff for necessary changes, for the most part.

    Cons

    Growing pains of a start up that's now too big, resulting in cases of nepotism.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open for changes from top to bottom.

    Pros

    - Fantastic managing team for sales
    - Great training program (even experienced sales people can learn a lot)
    - Wonderful CEO (you always chat with him, and he does participate in karaoke work hh)
    - The company does care about you when you are going through a hard time and support you fully
    - Friendly and helpful colleagues
    - Great culture
    - Snacks, breakfast and all sort of drinks
    - Lots of company events
    - Parking dt that you can use whenever
    - Good benefits and gym across the street

    Cons

    - For a more experienced Sales professional the base is a bit low.
    - During the whole training it seemed they are still trying to sell you on the job and the company. (We already signed the offer letter y'all)
    - Management always encourages you to work on a weekend, seems the work life balance is a bit off. Sales reps that have been there a while will encourage you to do so as well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep inspiring your teams, you all are wonderful people. Maybe just ease up on the weekends, it was very frustrating to receive multiple emails on a Saturday when you are with family "hey we are open and no one is here".

    Pros

    All of the employees are great, there aren't any cliques or office gossip. The work is hard but it pays off in the end. The product is helping small business owners which to me is really important.

    Cons

    Hard work, if you're expecting to come in and slack off, this isn't the place for you.

    Pros

    Great team of pros thrilled to delight customers on the daily. We celebrate wins and don't accept anything but the best customer experience.

    Cons

    Disconnect between Sales, CS & marketing. Few opportunities to advance. Change is slow. Efficient and Process driven to a fault.

    Advice to Management

    Train new hires. Build morale in CS by empowering employees.
