      Pros

      Love working here. Have a good work life balance with a company that I believe in.

      Cons

      Can't think of any right now

    2. This job market is so unique right now and I'm struggling (in a good way) because I have accepted a job offer at Payscale earlier this month, but have since received job offers from AWS and Cisco. I declined AWS because I already accepted this other role and I didn't feel like the culture was a match, however I am a little tempted by the Cisco offer. Has anyone been in this position before, and how bad would it be to potentially decline a job offer weeks after accepting? Would love some advice!

        Pros

        I loved working at PayScale, the people and managers were wonderful. The company vision was positive. Loved what we stood for. My purpose of this review is to make it even better because I truly care for the future of PayScale and the people who work there. My overall experience at PayScale was extremely positive and I would recommend working there to anyone.

        Cons

        Now that I’ve worked at another company for a little bit I have some advice to make it even better. CSM is a hard position. Customers can be highly demanding and unreasonable at times. It is CSM management’s job to ensure their employees feel supported and validated. Stand up for your CSMs when a customer is being unreasonable instead of the toxic mentality of “the client is always right” It makes all the difference in terms of employee retention. Sometimes a client truly does need to be told no, and have a boundary set, or they will continue to steamroll over people and display unacceptable behavior.

      Have you ever done interview & just felt the team or company wasn’t sitting well with your gut? How does that factor into your decision if an offer is made? Obv a job interview time is limited so you never know but sometimes I just have a vibe it’s not a match and even though I may keep going in rounds, I’m always checking if I finally get the gut feeling this may be right. I had one where round 1-4 the mood was off. I felt I was being nitpicked harshly always, they rejected me in the end

      For those who are/were in management- At how many years of experience did you get your first job as a manager? How did you make the jump into leadership? For people whose first management role started at a new company, how did you convince them since you had no prior experience in management??
