    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

    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.

    Amazing people, open to new ideas an processes, opportunities to grow and move between roles and departments. A great place to learn and grow your career

    Cons

    Downtown traffic can be a pain

    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".

    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.

    Pros

    Amazing co-workers
    5 weeks PTO total
    Healthcare
    Downtown parking
    Great entry level skills acquired for SaaS and business
    Best view in Austin from the office. Parents and friends will think you work in a TV show.

    Cons

    very inexperienced management with a leadership vacuum that leaves most of the structures in place and changes being made unsuccessful and confusing. Micro-management has become rampant as the culture tries to maintain its one prominent allure. Room for advancement, training or growth is negligible. This is a company and job for a college grad to learn some skills and then GTFO.

    Advice to Management

    Hire experienced managers that can lead and have proven people skills.

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

    Pros

    The environment - I actually enjoy coming into work. 80-120 dials here feels less than 20-30 at past companies, because it’s FUN. Music, celebrations, snacks, drinks, etc. It has a startup feel but it’s well beyond your average startup.

    The money - If you can sell, this is a six figure job. Year 1 you should easily pull in 65-75, but year 2 there’s no reason not to make 100k

    The people - this is partially a pro. Although there are some immature people, the bulk of the people are amazing, inspirational, and motivating. The new Director is absolutely incredible and the management team is by your side every minute of every day in the best way.

    The perks - unlimited PTO from dec 15 - Jan 2 (are you kidding me??), 15 PTO days per year, competitive salary and comp, great benefits, AMAZING location, and 100% free downtown parking.

    Cons

    Immaturity - there are a few people (10%) that lack professionalism and it can be a bit rowdy at times, but the majority of people aren’t like this!

    Advice to Management

    8:30-5:30 is outdated for this scene. Loosen up a LITTLE. It’s extremely hard to deal with things life hits you with (doctor, vet, etc).

    Pros

    Good for early career stage employees looking to understand sales & company operations.

    Cons

    Lacked transparency and effective vision setting for high level goal obtainment.
    In need of a sense of urgency and solution selling mindset.

    Pros

    The sales knowledge and experience you gained from OutboundEngine is second to none. The managers truly care and work hard to lead you to success.

    Cons

    One of the hardest sales jobs in the world. Work hard for them and they will work hard for you!
