Red Ventures

Thinking about leaving my position at Red Ventures as a Software Engineer, for an internship at AWS with potential to be hired full time. Right now I’m making 75-90k a year at RV but from what I hear at Amazon Web Services I could be making double. But I worry about the burn out at FAANG companies. Opinions? I feel my salary is pretty low for what I do.

    A performance based company that celebrates world culture and diversity

    Pros

    3 weeks PTO, unlimited sick days (so long as you don't take advantage of them), decent benefits and maternity/paternity leave.

    Cons

    Annual reviews based on overall scored performance dictate your salary but may not land you in the mid-high salary range of your position.

    Pros

    They say there is a lot of opportunity to move around within the company, which is true. It’s a good place to start and learn how to navigate the corporate world. Good benefits and great work life balance. However, I wish I would’ve left earlier.

    Cons

    The promote / pay structure is toxic. Performance based reviews create a toxic work environment where people step all over you in order to get ahead. After a “great year” only got a pay increase of 3%. They hire people straight out of college in order to pay less. Also, if you switch to a different role, you cannot get promoted or a raise within 6 months of the role change, meaning that you can go a LONG time without a promotion or raise, regardless of how your performance was in the previous role. After many years at RV being severely underpaid, with an HR department that does absolutely nothing, I left. Get your experience and get out.

    Great Place to Push Your Talents & Grow

    Sep 7, 2022 - Director in Indian Land, SC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Managers who will advocate for you and teams that will rally around you - Opportunities to grow / learn / push yourself in ways you maybe didn't even think possible (working in a new role, new industry) - Hybrid work schedule - best of both world's - in-person connection and flexibility to be remote some days - Leaders - including the co-founders - seem genuinely committed to creating a welcoming workplace and want to better understand diverse viewpoints/life experiences that aren't their won; they may not always get it right, but the effort to be better is there - People (hands down, some of the best) - Great company culture & HQ campus (gives me college campus vibes with a ton of school spirit) - Senior leaders are involved/always on campus

    Cons

    - A hybrid schedule - where you come in and get in-office face time with your teams and leaders - is important here - It's a high-performance culture; the bar for succeeding in your job is high and they will promote/reward you only when you've met that high bar - They want to people who are "bought in" to RV as a company and passionate about your job; if you're looking for a place where you clock in, clock out and just doing what you need to do to get by - this place likely isn't it

    Learn & thrive

    Oct 31, 2022 - Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - The people: RV's greatest asset. Smart, hardworking, innovative and collaborative. - Core values: Inclusive. Gives back to the community. Supportive of minority groups. - Multiple industries: You'll be given a chance to learn about countless industries, and if you are strategic, you can carve out a role for yourself and demonstrate its value. You'll be trusted with important work quickly and will have easy access to senior leaders. You'll learn more in 6 months at RV than you would getting a 4-yr degree.

    Cons

    Priorities can shift quickly without a lot of guidance on why. Speed doesn't always trump perfection. Return to office has felt forced and doesn't always align with maximizing employee productivity. Pay is below average.

    Good to grow sales experience, not much room for financial growth

    Nov 18, 2022 - Master Sales Agent in Fort Mill, SC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You get the opportunity to work at a great campus in a fast paced challenging sales position. The insurance and benefits are good and you will become a much better sales person working here. It is not an easy place, so really focus.

    Cons

    For some teams they give people very tough schedules where they have to work late at night and weekends. The commission structure changed monthly and it felt like it was already predetermined how much you would make regardless of your production. I hope this has changed. They seem quick to let people go for minor mistakes and didn't seem to value the sales people as time went on like they used to.

    Great for early career

    Sep 5, 2022 - Marketing Content Manager in Charlotte, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    If you're fresh out of college and want to get your feet wet in corporate culture, this is a great place to start with their launch programs. You'll get exposure to many lines of businesses and the ability to see how different roles interact with each other. 1:1's are highly encourage to anyone in the company (seriously, you will not be turned down for a 1:1 if you ask a VP or senior leader for a coffee chat!).

    Cons

    Although you can learn fast early in your career, promotions are entirely dependent on what team your own (there are dozens if not hundreds of teams) and it's well known that some teams are quick to promote while most are not so you end up with peers who are promoted year after year because they ended up in a friendlier and growth oriented team while you got stuck in a team made up of ex-consultants (just bad luck really). It's well known that career growth is not equal across the company, locations, teams and they are working on improving that to make it more equitable across everyone, along with their DEI efforts which were lagging prior to the pandemic.

    Great place to work

    Oct 13, 2022 - Senior Quality Automation Engineer in Fort Mill, SC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    *Great people to work with. *You can to try different technology. *Depending on manager/director. Some will go out of their way to help you in your career.

    Cons

    This role is undervalued and the company don't see a need for it anymore. Since they are no longer needing the role, they are laying QAE off, not all QAE, but a select few. I was given about 1.5 months to find a new job outside of RV, and a basic thank you for your work.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Decent PTO package; opportunities for career advancement; opportunities to change your career remaining staying at RV, as there are educational programs to make that possible (e.g., coding programs); good corporate discounts

    Cons

    Salaries based on market rate in Charlotte, NC, regardless of where you actually live; no sick days; RV advertises its PTO policy as "untracked" or "flexible," which is not the case for employees in several states, including California and Washington; some managers interpret the PTO policy as "unlimited," so your PTO actually depends on who your manager is and what their interpretation of the policy is; "company culture" is actually very culty; attempting a hybrid work environment for a distributed workforce is a logistical nightmare and creates an uneven playing ground for fully remote employees who live and work in areas that don't have RV offices; deeply complex and opaque promotions/raise system, which is tied to the company's equally complex and ever-changing employee review system; "written in pencil" = you might have a new manager/team every six months; prepare to watch a bunch of white women cry over cancel culture during DEI "listening sessions"

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The people you work with are great. I’ve met some of my best friends working at RV. The benefits are great, PTO, 401k, the list goes on.

    Cons

    If you’re expecting even average pay, look somewhere else. I’ve been told so many times that I’d be getting raises or a promotion that never ended up happening. Very cult-like culture. People worship Ric as if he were their god when I’m reality he’s very fake in my opinion. During AEMs he’ll get so emotional but the second the cameras are off he’s back to business as usual with a stone face. This company and the higher-ups only care about their ego and how they’re seen. It’s all for social media.
