    I have been working at ToutApp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    In the last year, Tout let me grow in whichever direction my curiosity drew me towards. I have been able to start in my first sales role ever, was promoted as quickly as I was capable of putting more on my plate, twice, doubled my pay and now I get to spend all day everyday connecting with leaders in my field around their goals and how I can best help them get there. If you are getting into sales and want to spend all day learning from the leaders in your field, this is the place to do it :)

    Cons

    There is always more that one can do at a startup. Though there is a culture of balance, when you gather a room full or growth oriented individuals constantly wanting to be better, its hard to prioritize balance. That being said, the team and leadership is constantly promoting working smarter over longer, getting out to exercise and exploring your external passions!

    I worked at ToutApp for more than a year

    Pros

    There is a real sense of community at ToutApp. If you need help, everyone is willing to give it to you. If you have a desire to change your field, there is always an opportunity to move to other areas in the company.

    Cons

    The management is not supportive in anyway. When you transition to a new team, your never given a career path for personal or professional growth in the company or a field you know nothing about. Your not given a voice in any situation, and in most cases are pressured in to making a decision that may lead you into being blamed for that choice later on. Initially ToutApp was a great environment for you to work and grow, but recently it has turned into a pool of negativity led by the CEO and senior management, where the lack of leadership provides confusion on the direction of the company and product.

    I worked at ToutApp

    Pros

    The people that worked there were intelligent and hard working.

    Cons

    They brag about how "transparent" the culture is, but in reality, there is zero transparency, and false promises made left and right especially when it came to promotion and growth. The CEO is a control freak and makes rash, emotional decisions that incredibly impact the business and product. The engineering team is then pushed to the limit as they try to keep up with the changing requests of the CEO and then release features without QA or testing...safe to say the product a little bit of a mess.

    I worked at ToutApp

    Pros

    Standard pay, perks, etc. for a startup. Product is competing in a very crowded space and brand recognition is minimal. I guess this is great if you enjoy a challenge.

    Cons

    I have never feared for my job more than when I worked for this company. Guidance for role was minimal and expectations were high. Company was built for growth that never really materialized - CEO was incredibly premature with regards to C-suite hires, office space selection, etc. Bloated executive salaries have eliminated the company's ability to survive in a dried up funding market. Recent company postings state that the company is now geared for "profitability" (read cost cutting). Take a look at "Past Employees" on LinkedIn and try to apply to their posted positions. You'll notice a good sized group of people who decided not to work for the company in May 2016. If you try to access apply for their job listings, it appears that they've stopped paying their bill to Lever. Long story short: this is a sinking ship. Avoid this company like the plague.

    I have been working at ToutApp

    Pros

    ToutApp has done a great job of hiring good people to fit their collaborative and self reflective culture. I really enjoy coming in every day and working with my team. We share in our success and are not afraid to talk about and learn from mistakes. The tone for all of this is set from the top, which I find incredibly refreshing.

    Cons

    It's a start up environment, so don't expect all processes to be well-established or everything figured out. Things can change rapidly so you need to be willing to adapt.

    I have been working at ToutApp full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    ToutApp is a fast growing startup that's changing the way people sell. I come to work excited everyday because I'm surrounded by talented people doing the best work of their careers, yet they still know how to have fun. Since ToutApp is still on the smaller side, you have the ability to wear multiple hats and make changes that will shape the way the company scales.

    Cons

    Although we get unlimited PTO , I still don't feel like there is a work-life balance. I don't necessarily feel that it's the company's fault. I think that the employees just care a lot about doing the best that they can and prioritize work. We are all very passionate people.

    Pros

    ToutApp is a really fun place to work, but it also challenges you to do the best work of your career. The management wants everyone to succeed, and everyone supports each other here. The dynamic is very collaborative and I enjoy coming to work every single day.

    Cons

    As with any startup, there are some growing pains.

    I have been working at ToutApp

    Pros

    I've only been here a short time, but have already fallen in love. Everyone here, especially in the Sales org where I sit, is sharp, team-oriented, super helpful, and might I add extremely fit. As a salesperson, it's awesome to see your and your customers' feedback having a real impact on the product...and quickly. Management lets you do your job, and is 110% supportive in any way they can help carry a deal forward. In less than my first 60 days, I've learned so much from my team and my manager in terms of not only product knowledge, but also high level sales strategy. I can already tell that this is a place I want to be for the long run.

    Cons

    The panoramic view of Downtown San Francisco and the Bay Bridge is pretty brutal, especially in the mornings when the sun is peeking through the buildings and casts a soft orange light across the City. Also, the catered lunch and commute reimbursement make my job tough.

    I have been working at ToutApp full-time

    Pros

    The happiness is real. I love coming into work- I feel challenged, but I also feel like I am set up for success, people are friendly, and the culture is fantastic. The great work/life balance here is so rare, especially in tech. Unlike in my last job, you are judged on what you produce, not what time you leave. Also, the view from the office is insane.

    Cons

    We are still building out management, so you have to be ready to rely on your peers. Managers are available if you need them, but on my team specifically, it's more of a peer-peer culture. Not necessarily a con, just something to note.
