A great majority of the people there are genuinely amazing and are some of the best people you'll ever meet in your career. Taco Friday is always the best. Unlimited PTO was cool when you found the time to take it. Free snacks and drinks was always a plus.
The looming fear of possibly being laid off/fired in what really is a small, almost start up like company competing with big dogs.5

The people are great and it is what made you want to come to work every day. Other than that not much I can honestly say that is a pro. Every place has free food, relaxed environment, etc....So those are really not Pros.
The overall morale of the company was low, poor compensation (compared to industry standards), little to no advancement opportunity, the company was non-transparent, and management was lacking in many areas.5

Group unit tested Lot's of fun place to work at inside the building Got a lap top, so if needed you could work from home Strongly believes in continuous integration don't micromanage your in and out time endless supply of snacks friendly and smart people
manager's attitude was hot and cold (hear this has changed, which is why the company overall review is higher in stars) Open environment only getting a small desk (table size) to function on1

Very structured, which is a GREAT thing when it comes to internships You learn a lot, from keyword research to link building to content writing. You'll be able to confidently walk away from the job being able to say, 'I know how to do SEO.' The people are great and so friendly! They're always willing to help and really care about you as a person, not just an employee. There's always something to do, so you're never just sitting there bored. You really feel like you're making a difference on this team, because you are! They always have fun perks and incentives. Free sodas always, free snacks, free ice cream and oftentimes there are free lunches too.
None! Other than the fact that dogs are only allowed in the office once a week, instead of all days.

The game room (I need to add five words - so here they are)
Management is turing this into a blame game. As a result people that are good in nothing but processes get hired and/or promoted.2

The coolest place I've ever worked at. I looked forward to the beer Fridays, Bring your Dog to Work days and the fun bingo games they hold to relieve the stress. People here are really fun to work with and a lot of them are really helpful. Management invests a lot in training so there's a lot of opportunities to move to a programmer role from customer support if you really work to develop your skills.
If you work with customer support, it might be a stressful. But I think it's the nature of this type of job, no matter the company you work for.

Fun Company. It is a fast-paced, quick moving sales environment, and not everyone is successful. You really have to take advantage of every conversation. That being said, you can be very successful with skill, determination and efficiency. You have the opportunity to speak to business owners in every stage of progress - garage entrepreneurs to C-Level decision makers in large companies. There's been a recent change in leadership on the sales floor and the new director is extremely people-focused. If you're willing to invest the time and effort it takes to be successful you have the opportunity to carve out a career path in a variety of different roles, at a company that is growing exponentially. I've been a top performer since I arrived, and I rarely work more than 40 hours a week. I also routinely win great prizes in sales contests - including a $500 Southwest Airlines giftcard. I have plenty of PTO to take advantage of it.
Sales is very fast-paced. You have to always be on the top of your game, and efficiency and organization is a priority. Some things that are out of your control will affect your sales time, and you have to power through and stay focused. Some people have no idea what it takes to start a business, and a free trial is very easy to sign up for.

Great product, Phenomenal Culture, Great Perks - free food, drinks etc People take pride in the work they do and everyone's contribution directly effects the success of the business
You may be required to work hard but this only leads to more opportunities for you to succeed.

great co-workers - the only thing keeping me here up to now.
- there dosent seem like a plan in place for this company to continue anymore - mass layoffs have become the normal - company seems to be losing money and their solution is firing people with the highest salary - they have been on a 'transparency' kick since they booted out the old CEO, now its even clearer they dont have a plan. - their 'plans' change every week.32
- 4.0Jun 2, 2015Support ConciergeCurrent EmployeeAustin, TX
Good, laid-back environment. Lots of free snack food. Four weeks of vacation time a year! I work as a 'support concierge' so I can only really comment on this position. You really learn a ton working here and they are really good at promoting people from within. I've probably seen about 20 people get promoted from our department just in the short time that I have been here though it does take at least 8 months to over a year usually. They are concerned with metrics like any support department but are much more relaxed about it than most. It is pretty silly sometimes, but they really do go out of their way to at least try and make the job as enjoyable as possible. From just working here 6 months you will learn a ton about HTML/CSS, DNS, databases, APIs, basic advanced computer skills, and all facets of E-commerce in general.
As everyone else said... the pay is not up to the industry standards in general. Location is not the greatest either as it is right in the middle of an industrial district in a pretty boring area of town. The software is a little outdated and rarely gets updated which leaves you to suffer the complaints. Tech support in general is just kind of lame but I can hardly blame them for that...
