-Starting salary, I guess? They have a bonus target as well but it’s not noteworthy and I never saw it in my time there. -I found work/life balance to be okay but know that there were a lot of people who didn’t find that to be the case. -Some smart dedicated people who haven’t been totally beaten down.
-If you’re not in sales, don’t bother. You’ll continually get your resources undercut and have sales balk at any notion of having to change a dated approach. You will cater to sales whims or you will get complained about. -Huge layoffs at the start of the pandemic. Comms around these were awful and people were left for weeks not knowing what was happening. They tout that they’re hiring now but almost all open roles are sales or client success. In the meantime, my department lost 75% of the employees and they were never replaced. Those left were just expected to pick up the slack and deal with it. -Most toxic culture I’ve ever been a part of. People would disappear regularly with no mention or replacement. Colleagues will gladhand to your face and then slam you behind your back. Middle managers who have been there for years get promotions, while everyone else hears how bad the company is doing and that there’s a hiring freeze. -Upper management and HR are a joke. Employees clamored for any kind of support during COVID and were offered recorded webinars. No trainings offered, no upskilling. Getting a $500 temp requires a half dozen layers of approval up to the CEO. CEO only cares about EBITDA and getting the org sold off. -In my time there, I had at least a half dozen managers. People get shuffled around with no explanation and most don’t really care. Those that do are powerless because the infrastructure is so broken. -Most jobs just don’t have career paths or growth trajectories. If you’ve been there, you might get a “Senior” tacked on but it’s the same job. One department I worked with had at least three different job titles for the same job. You might set objectives or you might not, but the company doesn’t care about it in the least. -The company has no idea what they want to do between trying for new customers and attracting new ones. For most of my time, there was next to no messaging about priorities or group objectives. You’re just left to do everything on your own. When you’re trying to satisfy everyone, you’re not satisfying anyone.9

Some great people who really want to have impact.
CEO who was airdropped in to manage the next sale and is quite explicit that his tenure has an expiration date—really motivating. Nonexistent HR. C-suite team interested only in promoting themselves. Lack of coherent strategy and constant strategy changes.5
