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

    Pros

    One of the things I love most about Vorsight is the people I work with. Sales can be challenging but knowing that you have a team that understands your frustrations really helps. Everyone helps to uplift and motivate each other and I have found that to be really amazing. The culture at Vorsight is focused on results which can be a good thing if you enjoy working in that way. It can be challenging at times when you...

    I worked at Vorsight full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Vorsight is a great place to initially get some work experience under your belt and is also a great place to to get initial sales training if you are interested in a career in sales. It’s a solid jumping off point and after you put in one year, you are extremely marketable to other sales roles. Great and easy transition out of college given its young culture Also made some of my best friends there which is always a plus

    Cons

    Pretty unprofessional office, low base salary (they are fixing that thankfully), and it can get sort of high school like with how close knit it is and the drama/gossip. Sometimes gives off the vibe of a sales adult daycare center but some folks do not mind that (I didn’t at first but got tired of it at the end and wanted something more professional)

    Advice to Management

    Work on being more transparent with everyone, have better internal communication among management in which everyone is on the same message, and give your top performers more responsibilities rather than just scheduling meetings.

    I worked at Vorsight full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Vorsight has an exceptional sales methodology and a support environment that are second to none. It simply must be this way. The primary job hired for is SDR and it is both challenging and rewarding. There are lots of reviews about Vorsight being a great place to start. It is, but there's much more to that story. From someone who contributed at multiple levels beyond SDR (and at length), what you make of it after that...

    Cons

    This business is all about performance and upside versus big, corporate base salaries. The compensation packages generally reflect this philosophy. As a buffer, the benefits and company match are great, as are many perks. It also comes with little to no bureaucracy, which I personally relished. There are limitations to this model, but it's arguable that the knowledge gain and work environment are solid trade-offs.

    Advice to Management

    I give this advice to current and future management, and certainly to my past self. In a small business, each department is responsible for quite a lot outside of its stated scope, and this overlaps in meaningful ways with the other stakeholders. There's ALWAYS an unending amount to be accomplished in every leadership role, and "always doing" is a tempting mode to operate in. Take (make!) the time and/or facilitate ways...

      Cons

      The job is challenging and many enter with the mindset that this is an entry-level job and when they don't perform well or don't like it they leave. The BDA role isn't for everyone, but Vorsight provides all the resources for you to be successful as long as you have the work ethic and attitude. That being said, the turnover is high but that comes with no surprise given the nature of the industry.

      Pros

      Amazing company and a place that I will always have fond memories of. I am a former lobbyist who came here wanting to get into sales and planned to stay for only a few months to learn and ended up staying one month short of 2 years. If your looking for a company that will train you, give you opportunities to grow, and help you learn the ropes for a career in sales or business then this is the place to be. Special shout...

      Cons

      After you reach account manager the opportunities to move up are limited unless you want to move to Exec Vision. However, this company is growing and I don't expect this to be an issue much longer.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what your doing. One of the things I valued the most about working here was the open door policy to speak with management and just the overall environment in general. Unlike many companies the owners David Stillman, and Steve Richards, engaged with the staff and treated every employee with respect. It's very rare to enjoy going to work every day and I can honestly say I never dreaded being in the office. Don't...
