    * Leadership nurtures a culture of feedback and transparency
    * Vacations are strongly encouraged with a focus on work / life balance
    * Visiting other offices is encouraged!

    Cons

    I have been working at Sojern full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Sojern is fast paced, growing rapidly, and constantly changing. This allows employees to grow, be challenged, and test new ideas!

    Employee input is valued and encouraged. If you want to forge a path and try something new, employees have the support of their peers and management.

    Sojern focuses on work/life balance. They encourage taking personal time to travel the world and instill flexibility within your role.

    Sojern has fun! The work hard, play hard mentality is instilled throughout the organization. Hard work is rewarded and employees are recognized for their efforts.

    Because of the constant change and growth of the company, each day brings something different and employees are constantly learning new skills.

    Cons

    Training leaves something to be desired. Due to constant change, training given to new hires may not be pertinent to their role once they move into their full role.

    At times there is lack of uniformity in processes or communication due to the nature of the business and the evolvement of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Continue encouraging employees to take on projects that interest them and maintaining work/life balance. Focus resources on creating uniform processes and training.

    I have been working at Sojern full-time

    Pros

    Pay can be good, I don’t have anything else to say

    Cons

    Don’t do it ..... seriously don’t

    Unlimited PTO - guilt trip you every time you try and use any PTO

    Most departments get treated decent, sales is a very cutthroat area to be

    They promote “yes men” but not the ones actually being successful

    They don’t reward outside of the box thinking

    It’s an entry level sales job - follow the script - hit these metrics

    No really .... you could exceed your goal 8 months early and if you didn’t have 100 phone calls, 25 meetings and 12 pitches you were in trouble

    If you want an out of college frat job, this is it, if you want an actual career, don’t come here

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, reward producers and don’t belittle the ones taking a bit longer. Let the performers help them
