      I worked at Simply Hired full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Learn a ton, Cool perks, a fun and educational environment with lots of great people and an amazing and inspiring founder.

      Cons

      The technology lagged far behind the competitor and it showed. Indeed handed us our lunch and sales took the brunt of the blame when it was obvious that we had the same website, better sales people, and an awesome team in most facets. We just didn't have nearly the back end firepower indeed did and that took us out.

      Advice to Management

      Should have given up far sooner. Selling to recruit or $54M is a poor showing to say the least, and rebooting the sales team over and over again was evidence that senior leadership was truly blind to what the real problem was for all those years, especially after Gautam left.
