    I worked at PeopleMatter full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    PeopleMatter got off to a good start by helping businesses deal with the rush of applicants during the great-recession. They had effective technologies to help identify the good applicants based on quick assessments, run background checks and get them on-boarded. They're located in downtown Charleston which is a fun town.

    Cons

    They made investments in the wrong areas of the product and sales were impacted. Ultimately their investors wanted to salvage their investments and sold the business.

    I worked at PeopleMatter full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    PeopleMatter has some highly successful and talented employees, Being down on King Street in charleston can lead to the fun of working at this fast paced company. They have listed perks like unlimited vacation, free healthcare and a relaxed dress code which are all enjoyable.

    Cons

    The leadership is a mess, the CEO has been replaced, and sadly during the process all of the good hard working caring executives left the company and they ones that have lead a negative culture stayed on.. and even received a promotion. At PeopleMatter they are concerned about sales and sales only, The sales team is pressured to close deals that are bad for the customer and PeopleMatter and the Customer Success team is more focused on revenue and upsales than they are about keeping customers and reducing churn, lots of large customers have left in the last 18 months and they show no sign of returning.

    I worked at PeopleMatter full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    While the pom-pom waving culture at PeopleMatter is overblown - there is a great culture for those who know how to work in teams and can communicate effectively. As in any small company - change is constant and its harder on those who expect everything to be easy or handed to them the way they want it. There's a ton of opportunity to make variable comp money, have an impact and develop your skills, and work on a platform that delivers what its expected to. Most employees are great to work with and the location in Charleston is world-class.

    Cons

    Its not an easy sale - there are big obstacles to overcome, but it makes your really develop skills that will accelerate your career. Management is not very transparent - and at times was very bloated. Not in the trenches enough with their front-line. Starting pay is not aggressive for the industry - they rely on the depressed wages in the Charleston market since there is so much competition for these types of companies/jobs.
