    I have been working at Relias full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very fast paced! Fun, collaborative, and flexible working environment with a focus on core values. Smart people and encouraging senior management allow for creativity and data-driven problem-solving.

    True focus on the needs of the customer and industry drives innovation and shape direction of the company.

    Autonomy within teams to experiment and grow. Focus on learning, development, and growing talent is apparent from day one.

    Cons

    Teams could still use additional process and inter-departmental communications could be a little better, but that comes with hyper-growth organization.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to put your trust in your teams - there are tons of talented, passionate, and incredibly smart managers and individual contributors who go above and beyond to get things done!

    I have been working at Relias full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Relias has been an excellent company to work for. In my experience:
    Promises have been kept by upper management.
    Relias strives to hire within.
    Lot's of opportunity for advancement and lateral movement.
    Work life balance is highly valued.
    Amazing coworkers and culture.

    Cons

    No real cons but I will mention that sales will be losing a valued upper management figure soon but has a talented replacement already in place. It has been a great transition and management has been working hard to make this as smooth as possible.

    Relias is a fast paced, rapidly growing company. They are very upfront about this in the hiring process. Make sure that this is the environment for you before pursuing a job here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the fun!

    Pros

    Good benefits, they say unlimited PTO, but still need manager approval and it ends up being 2 weeks of PTO.

    Cons

    Poor Management, always changing direction from a business plan perspective, high turnover, no marketing or lead generation support, judged by your salesforce activity, boiler room environment.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to a plan longer than 3 months,

    I have been working at Relias full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are a lot of smart, driven people working here. The overall work environment is enjoyable and fun. Many good benefits including unlimited PTO and work from home days....but beware, not all departments get equal benefits.

    Cons

    The pay is awful. The leadership has stated several times that they have no desire to be a top paying employer. There was talk of reviewing salaries and moving them closer to what the local market bears, but this didn’t occur in many departments. Overall, even though Relias is generating a ton of revenue with extremely high margins, they are cheap when it comes to total employee compensation.

    LOTS of unqualified managers. To a fault, Relias wants to promote from within, even at the expense of experience and quality.

    Advice to Management

    Actually pay attention to the employee surveys. Enough lip service. We are smart people and read through it. Pay your people better because there are A LOT of people exploring other opportunities, that would gladly stay if they didn’t continue to see peers leaving for significantly higher compensation elsewhere.
