    Pros

    Top to bottom, the People are excellent. They're smart, hard working, fun, etc.

    The new Product is really distinctive and is getting traction.

    Cons

    Need to fill in some holes in the organization in Marketing, Research, Engineering

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

    Pros

    Strong player in the political and advocacy space. Good benefits package. Unlimited PTO. Good marketing team. A few good people are still left.

    Cons

    Very high-pressure sales organization. If you aren't performing to unattainable standards in the first 90 days, you are out. There has been a ton of turnover in sales over the past several months. Not one person on my team of 8 reps made goal in 2016. There is no transparency at all when it comes to how annual goals are set. Very weak support team and internal communication. The product is inferior and it is hard to compete in an already very crowded marketplace. Most campaigns either get cancelled or do not renew. The company is under a lot of pressure to be profitable after almost 10 years in business and they are taking extreme measures to get there.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your sales people are hearing in the market and use that feedback. Be more transparent. You have lost a lot of good people recently and need to step up your game.

    I worked at Resonate Insights full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company incentives and rewards programs are strong.
    The pay is on-par with the area.
    The engineering team has smart and kind people.

    Cons

    On the advertising side, the environment is toxic. Sales runs roughshod over account management and product.
    The vision for the network is very behind the times. No transparency to the client and using out-dated technology.

    Advice to Management

    Start attending ad tech conferences to get a sense of the market. Push back on sales when they make promises the company can't keep. Hire a larger team to prevent burn-out.

    I worked at Resonate Insights full-time

    Pros

    -The company is making a purposeful change in direction to become a SaaS provider of an insights and analytics tool. It is a great time to join the company if you thrive in a "we will just figure it out" mode of operation.
    -Leadership team is great.

    Cons

    -Because the SaaS model is still new, and Resonate already has a well established ad-tech business, there are dueling priorities at times, and the mission is not always very clear.

    Pros

    I had an amazing opportunity to work at an amazing place. Lots to learn, great culture, and great people. Especially people. There are good communication and knowledge sharing amongst the team. People are always willing to help out with difficult problems and managers asking members feedbacks for things to improve. I do not have much working experience but I have to say that I could not have asked for more for a great working experience.

    Cons

    I really don't have cons but since I HAVE to write something here.... ummmm free sodas?

    Pros

    Great place to learn new exciting technologies. Most of the engineering team is fun to work with.

    Cons

    As in most of the companies, there are some bad apples which inhibits the Engineering team going to next level. These are protected individuals from the upper management. If you can get around these, you will enjoy working here. This company is way behind adapting new Big Data technologies.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out for these bad apples. They will spoil this company.

    Some smart and lovely people

    Cons

    HR folks are definitely employees & have the right to review like everyone. Just use your deductive reasoning reading reviews

    Advice to Management

    Investigate rash of revolving door departure of employees. Don't be complacent.

    Pros

    Sales Management is Great; I've never had a better manager. True leadership gives sales team perfect freedom and structure balance.
    Resonate has a SOLID product offering- once agencies and brands discover us- they can't get enough.
    Room for Growth-- Executive management is accessible and cares about what you need as an employee

    Cons

    As with any start up, struggling to find clear focus on what our edge is in a very crowded space. Need to focus on our differentiating factor and define a clear voice as to what we do.
    Need better marketing to spread the good word about Resonate's solid products.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to current employees- we know what is happening in the field and we can provide a lot of constructive feedback that will help the company grow faster.
