    Pros

    -cs has lots of cool peeps to work with. Smart, creative. -one half of the CS managers are great. -free medical benefits for you and spouse -selling is a skill that will help your entire career -cs work life balance is good

    Cons

    - not a CS job. it is a sales job, long blocks of cold calling and revenue quotas. -product is buggy and outdated. spend a lot of time defending on the phone or asking when a bug is going to be fixed. -if you do well in the sales of your job, you can get away with anything. -some managers are great. others are mean. one executive gets paid to hide all day (no one can ever find them ever), while another is the first to arrive and last to leave. mo consistency. -below market pay. there are bonuses but they change the structure a lot. used to make bank, but at the end not so much

    Don't drink the Kool-Aid with this company! Sales is a joke here!

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You can wear shorts to work. If you like loud rap music and F Bombs being dropped by management, this place is for you!

    Cons

    Poor middle management and outdated sales methods. Scripts!? Seriously?? High turnover - 1 out of every 10 that start each month actually stay. Training should be given by qualified and knowledgeable professionals in the the sales field, not any one who has closed a deal with this company. No work/life balance - hours are 8-5 Monday-Friday and are paid as such, but middle management 'suggests' you work 7-6 and Saturdays. 150 calls a day is the minimum

    Quickly growing startup downtown with an amazing company culture

    Mar 7, 2014 - Marketing in Austin, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There's working for a startup, which is fun. And then there's working for a startup that actually is growing (quickly I might add) and bringing in a solid revenue stream. Trust me, it's awesome to work for a place that you can almost feel the company growing on a daily basis. Things are kept lean here, but in the interest of turning this place into a machine! At the end of the day, working in a fast-paced startup that is selling an incredible product that is easy to get behind and one that is bringing in money, makes working here a truly epic experience. The work/life balance here is amazing too. My schedule has never been an issue and things are definitely of the mentality that if you get your work done, you're good to go. The culture is what has kept me here and makes me want to stay here longer. There is a lot of hard work being done around the clock here, but when you walk into the office, there's just an energy about the place that makes you want to contribute and be part of it. The company also has a great selection of coffee, sodas, snacks, etc. and loves to surprise us a few times a month with margarita machines, burger trucks, cupcakes, and other treats that make you smile.

    Cons

    The current office is cute, but we definitely need to move. And while the office currently is above the bars on 6th street, which is great for lunch and after work activities, it's rather dirty and so loud! That, and because the sales team multiplies weekly like rabbits, we're very much on top of each other. The marketing team is providing a solid contribution to the company, despite being small in size. It's exhausting at times with the amount of work that needs to be done especially with the few number of people we have to do the work. Despite hitting and continually exceeding our number, there doesn't appear to be any plans to grow the team in the near future, which is a bummer.

    Pros

    Great sales training program, management wants you to succeed. If you are making commission this is a great job. The company is growing fast and the benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    High turnaround of employees, myself included. Also, I see the need for music pumping on the sales floor to keep the energy up, but it wasn't always my music of choice. The stated hours are a 9 hour workday (hour for lunch in the middle), but the culture there is a 10-12 hour workday. to succeed there you need to put the time in which makes for a tough work/life balance. It was a tough for me to balance this and my work there suffered.

    Pros

    Great location in downtown Austin. Snacks. Happy hours. Catered lunches.

    Cons

    Expect to be worked to death for below average pay. Managers don’t hear you when you address issues to them. Absolutely 0 opportunity for work life balance. No raise in 2+ years.

    The relationship with your coworkers.

    Cons

    They lie from day one, your only as good as your next sell. Read the reviews on the product it sucks and you dont help small business. Work life balance is non existent. What training? No job security at all none.

    Great company, just wasn't the position for me.

    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.

    Tough Job

    Pros

    Cold brew on tap, ability to make lots of money, decent training

    Cons

    There was no work life balance at all they expect you to be in at 8 and leave at 6 on top of working Saturdays. 250 calls a day at least. Management doesn't care about you, you're just a number to them (except for a select few people). Turnover rate is CRAZY and they will even give dirty looks if you get up to go to bathroom more than twice a day. They scream at you if you are off the phone for more than a minute. They also listen in on your calls when you don't even know.

    Sr Talent Acquisitions Manager

    We appreciate your feedback, unfortunately OutboundEngine is not a fit for everyone and it looks like this was the case in this situation. We try to be very diligent at setting expectations that this is a cold calling position and takes grit. It seems like our time together was too short and low earnings are a symptom of not finding a mutual fit. I hope you found our training and structure helpful and learned something you can take to your next sales job in Austin
