    I have been working at Sailthru full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people are really what makes Sailthru great, and there's a lot of cross team collaboration and the opportunity to make your voice heard. Product-wise, there was a period where it felt like we were in a holding pattern (i.e. not deploying enough of what customers needed). Thankfully, in the past two years, there have been a lot of great strides to listen to customers and get feedback before building features that...

    Cons

    There's not a ton of growth for people in non-management positions. There shouldn't be a ton of layers, but opening more mentor/team lead roles, or more specialized positions to facilitate growth, would be great.

    I have been working at Sailthru full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Good HQ location (in One World Trade Center) - Healthcare on par - Still a few cool people left in the company

    Cons

    - Let’s be clear on the recent layoffs. The company wanted to grow its YoY revenue about 6x with the same pipeline, marketing efforts and employees. As a result, the company severely underperformed in Q1 and needed to downsize. I read and heard a lot of blaming: it’s not just the sales team, or leadership, or product: it’s us as a company. We are not able to deliver strongly and consistently. - Leadership: uninspiring....

      Pros

      I've been at Sailthru more than four years and it's been an amazing place to learn and grow professionally. There have been a lot of changes over the last four years, as with any technology software company, but I feel we are in a great place and offer strong opportunities for advancement. The executive team is very strong and has us positioned for an amazing IPO or sale some day.

      Cons

      There has been turnover, and some (as you can see here) were burned but I feel that ultimately we have kept the right players here and the results across all teams recently prove that out.

      Advice to Management

      Keep moving forward, growing revenue and increasing profitability sustainably as the overfunded competition spins out and churns out customers to us.

      I worked at Sailthru full-time

      Pros

      My immediate superiors were encouraging, supportive, and motivating throughout the massive amount of changes that are going on/went on there -an amazing product - catered lunch on thursdays - great views of the city - compensation is...good, i think?

      Cons

      If Sailthru was a bakery, it specialized in Turnover. - upper management was rather un-inspiring and didn't really aligned with the rest of the business. command and control mentality, which led to...turnovers - mid market transitioning to enterprise but the product wasn't necessarily there to support that jump. - so much spent on marketing but who knows what we can actually attribute to it considering the investment...
