    A good company with limited career growth

    May 9, 2022 - Consultant in San Francisco, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Full of genuinely kind and awesome people - Values educational development and pays for certifications

    Cons

    - The work is purely staff augmentation - If a client or assignment is not a good fit, management has no incentive to move the consultant and will keep the consultant in place for every contract extension requested by the client - Salaries are a bit low and compensation conversations are kept vague at mid year and end of year reviews

    Lots of growing pains

    Pros

    1. Easy work 2. Very flexible working hours

    Cons

    1. Management team is very inexperienced. The account directors can have 10+ direct reports and are not able to do proper preformance management. If you are looking for mentorship, you are not going to get it. The senior leadership is very insular. They say they want people to contribute and that they want diverse opinions. The reality is when people do voice a different opinion their are black listed and labled as "The Undercurrent"(a Propeller leadership term). 2. The pay is about $15k-$20k below what you can get elsewhere 3. The work is really rough. The name of the game is Sales and they are selling as much as they can no matter who bad the work is. It is very hard to get off bad work as preformance managers do not have the time to properly manage their direct reports and care for their careers.

    Innovative and positive work environment

    Jan 6, 2022 - Sales Development Representative (SDR) in Denver, CO
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    We are lucky enough to work with a lot of smart, kind, and thoughtful people. Propeller is consistently looking at how to bring more value to customers and is incredibly open-minded to feedback from employees and internal growth. 100% a start-up environment, lots of freedom.

    Cons

    Very few cons with working at Propeller. You just have to keep in mind if your priority is having shares in a start-up (high risk/ high reward), or working at a larger company that can offer higher wages based on a higher budget.

    Great culture and great leadership. True sense of psychological safety, a "you win, we win" mentality, and passion for improving the world.

Diversity and Inclusion
Is your company culture as inclusive as you think? Data shows that LGBTQ+ employees' experiences at work are not the same. They experience higher rates of discrimination and unfair treatment and feel less emotionally and psychologically safe than their straight coworkers. Propeller HR Operations Associate Stefanie Loebach shares six ways you can support LGBTQ +employees and create an environment that welcomes everyone to show up authentically. "With a thoughtful strategy and measurement in place, you can make LGBTQ+ employees feel like more than a number—but rather a celebrated, included, and valued part of the organization."
