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

    Pros

    I truly enjoy working for Relias. This is a company where the effort you put in lead to promotions, growth and opportunities. Employees can attend quarterly book clubs, join the mentorship program, and bring ideas to the team that are then implemented. Managers across the company are supportive of the growth of their own employees as well as other staff members who interact with them.

    Cons

    Not a company that you can just clock in and out - must put in effort

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate often with your employees. Continue to encourage individual contributes to bring ideas to the team.

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

    Pros

    I do think they care about the employees and their job satisfaction. They do try to live their mission, but bottom line, gotta make a profit. I do genuinely like 95% of the people I interact with on a daily basis, which can be hard to find!

    Cons

    Pay isn't superb. "Unlimited" PTO can be hard to get--many roles don't actually have someone to back you up, or require certain time "utilization" benchmarks to be met for bonuses.

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

    Pros

    Pretty great sales environment, many bright people who care about more than just monthly numbers. Management is extremely generous with work life balance, time-off requests, and accommodating family/health situations. There is a lot of opportunity to grow at Relias. Upward mobility and career pathing is quite apparent, especially within the sales organization.

    Cons

    Low pay across the organization leads to low quality of work in some instances. If one department is relying on another to get something done, there should be more of an expectation to respond and support, not wait for a manager to reach out. Relias puts a lot of internal value on things like: unlimited PTO, flex day once a week, etc. Almost like they are emulating companies like SAS who invest substantially in culture to reduce turnover. However, if you pay below industry averages, you will attract candidates who are not the best. When doing so, outcomes are not ideal.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to this stuff. We enjoy you and Relias, otherwise we wouldn’t stay.

    The people are easily the best part of Relias

    Cons

    Benefits are sometimes kind of lacking compared to other places I have worked

    Advice to Management

    Highly interactive and always asking for input; can't really ask for more than that

    Pros

    Relias is a fast paced environment and it is exciting to work here. The people you work with are great and you will learn a lot.

    Cons

    Expect more responsibility without more pay. Expect to be paid below market value. Poor work-life balance. The company operates on the high potential model and pays those initial employees very low. However, once they prove themselves and deserve to move up, they are moved up the ladder for responsibility but the pay does not reflect this at all. The ELT needs to appreciate the people that work hard every day at the management level to make it happen for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so stingy and stop paying your high performers below market value. EVERYONE is looking for other opportunities and has one foot out the door. NO ONE is happy because you refuse to pay them what they are worth.

    Thank you for your feedback. As always, we recommend that if you feel that you're being paid under market from a total compensation perspective that you visit with your manager or HR for a job... More

    Pros

    Good place to get experience

    Cons

    The lack of diversity in leadership, the low salaries for employees who have demonstrated hard work and loyalty to the organization are some of the terrible things about Relias. Any employee that has been with the organization and made significant contributions to the company, and received multiple promotions should not be making a crap salary. That should be an embarrassment our leaders who then make jokes at company-wide meetings about how much they are earning as executives... while driving Ferarri's and Teslas.

    Advice to Management

    HIRE BETTER, MORE DIVERSE LEADERSHIP.

    VALUE YOUR TEAM MEMBERS WHO CONTRIBUTE, WORK HARD, AND ARE LOYAL…AND BY VALUE I MEAN PAY AND TREAT THEM WELL.

    LEARN THE NAMES OF PEOPLE OF COLOR BECAUSE WE ARE NOT ALL THE SAME.

    ACTUALLY PAY AND INSURE YOUR EMPLOYEES. ACTUALLY CONTRIBUTE TO THEIR 401KS.
