    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent base pay, if you're single, don't have kids, and your rent is cheap. Catered meals at least once a week. Free beer at awards ceremonies and sometimes after hours. Your teammates for the most part are super cool and supportive.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is nonexistent. If you aren't closing anything or setting demos, prepare to work 7-7, including through lunch, and on Saturdays. Some managers are cool, some are extremely passive aggressive. Some top reps who held trainings are not managers for obvious reasons. The commission structure is way out of whack.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure everybody gets certified on the scripts, it'll prepare them so much better. Don't hold trainings immediately after lunch when we can be prospecting. Ease up a little bit on the work-life balance, some of us need some time to ourselves. Factor the setup fee into reps' revenue if they sold the prospect on it. And please PLEASE get rid of the effort hours, they don't really measure anything!

    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.

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

    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".
