Pros
  • If you have the drive, you can make a lot of money and not having to cold call/go door to door makes things a lot easier (in 19 reviews)

  • I would be remiss to not mention the basketball court, the bowling alley, the fitness class options, and the gym just to name a few (in 39 reviews)

Cons
  • Work life balance is a struggle (in 24 reviews)

  • Different commission structure every month but that's understandably for a sales call center (in 16 reviews)

    Pros

    Working at Red Ventures on the sales support side is very rewarding if you're driven and looking to grow. There's a lot of opportunity here for an engineer who is looking to grow in technical abilities and take leadership more quickly than usual.

    Great food and awesome perks throughout the company. Great community of people!

    Cons

    There is a lot of smart people here, but it can often seem overbearing and you wonder if a lot of people here are just full of egos.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Red Ventures (More than a year)

    Pros

    Perfect for recent college grads
    Can make a lot of money if you "drink the Kool-Aid" and follow scripting
    Good PMs have great coaching (bad PMs, not so much...)
    Benefits, culture, prizes, subsidized food

    Cons

    High Stress- never know if you will be fired for QA or some other reason
    Timed bathroom breaks
    Call center
    Many of the PMs should not be managing ANYONE
    Technology issues DIRECTLY affect your paycheck
    Agreeing to transfer can mess up promotions
    QA mistakes=money taken from account and it depends on which QA person listens to your call
    Roller coaster ride
    One minute you will be #1- beloved employee- the next you are being unexpectedly disciplined for some hidden mistake you may or may not have made
    You can be the top agent but not get promoted because of .5 points over absence or QA limit
    Any position other than sales will pay $30-40k- the money is in sales if you can handle the stress

    Advice to Management

    PMs should have product knowledge on a higher level than 95% of their team
    Reward those who take initiative
    QA should be consistent

    Pros

    More pay for higher performance

    Cons

    Too strict on compliance, one call can get you fired

    Advice to Management

    Need 3 strike rule for sales, more respect for tenured employees, not a long term career, management does not care nor promote long term growth and development, average agent leaves after 9-12 months

    Pros

    Friendly environment
    Great facility
    Bowling alley
    Basketball court
    Two food courts

    Cons

    Very stressful
    Technology errors can effect commission
    Favoritism in leadership roles

    Advice to Management

    Coaching system works, but its expected that everyone thinks/acts the exact same. Had a few performance managers really go the extra distance to meet agents halfway and learn from each other, and a few treat everyone the exact same and almost get angry if you didn't conform to their exact style of thinking.

    Pros

    It's a great place to work, no place is perfect! I hope to work here for a long long time!!

    Cons

    Room for promotion can be limited on the sales side. The base pay could really use a increase to at least minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make it a popularity contest!!! It shouldn't be about how much you use to have fun at work!! Don't make it unattainable fun with contests etc. and write up staff because they are no longer excited when you fall off as well!

    I worked at Red Ventures full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back dress code, fun team environment, and learned really strong sales tactics. Mangers were very helpful, nice office with cheap onsite restaurants.

    Cons

    No direct customer volume. Potential customers had no idea what company they were calling needed to gain trust and build value on very high priced insurance. "Leads" were often customers on very tight budget not willing to switch to insurance company that was double the price they were already paying.... try to sell someone on a fixed income something they already have for thousands less.. yea right. Required to work weekends even after 6 months!
