The company is solid and continues strategic growth. Salaries are fair and consistent with the market for SaaS

    Matching 401K would be nice. Locating qualified talent that possesses the unique skill sets required for some of the roles can be challenging at times. (Automotive AND SaaS)

    Cons

    I don't consider these cons but things to consider: -The company is in a growth phase. Things are being phased out, new things being phased in -If you are not familiar with automotive there is a little bit more of a learning curve to speak the language

    Pros

    From day 1 I felt like part of a family. The people are really the best part of working at Web Shop Manager. I work as a sales development representative with my direct boss being the CEO, Dana Nevins. He has put in personal time to sit down with me and go over my calls every day for 30-45 mins, giving me feedback on my progress. It is a great environment for learning sales and the whole sales team has really helped me grow in my career. They even paid for me to attend an 8-week intensive sales training and an ongoing weekly 2-hour refresher course that the wholes sales team goes to, so we are all on the same page and working as one cohesive team with a system. One of the great things about sales at Web Shop Manager is the versatility. I get to do a mix of inbound leads, email sequences, reaching out through social media, exhibiting at trade shows, and cold calls. And then develop a system that works best for me.

    Cons

    I cannot really think of anything except there is no 401K match, but there is a 401K plan.

    Pros

    As a new comer of 6 months or so and who started off as a Customer Service Temp, I find the atmosphere of Web Shop Manager is kind, respectful, relatively quiet, and considerate of individual personalities. It is production and client driven so employees must have the necessary job skills and/or be self-motivated to learn what needs to happen in order for successful results. All aspects of my job- from answering phones to admin projects have required me to ask everyone on staff numerous questions and I have only experienced the utmost of respect and welcoming assistance. It has been a true pleasure to work here. I have learned a lot about current software programs, e-commerce, and the automotive industry. Working in Customer Service, one of the signature aspects of WSM is the individual and detailed attention that WSM gives to its clients. At some point, the entire staff here at WSM will have had a hand in the building and the maintenance of our clients' websites. Consequently, everyone at WSM knows the first names of all the owners and numerous names of their employees. The management and the entire staff are aware of and understanding of personal and work related needs. Nothing unreasonable has ever been asked of me. I love the fresh food and snacks in the kitchen. I think it's a community friendly way to engage. The kitchen is not an alternative area but an integrated part of the work place.

    Cons

    I would love more direct training. it could be me..but building a little cold...

    Pros

    A job until you get a better job... If you like being gased up but get nowhere, this would be a start.

    Cons

    Everything... but the most noticeable is FAVORTISM from ceo since this is a close nit start up. Only those "friends" of ceo prior to startup survive longterm, otherwise your disposable. HIGH TURN OVER! Over hires just to fire, complete waste of valuable employee times. No loyalty to good workers, only to those of the ceo's alliance. If you want a job just to get by, give it a try but only as a stepping stone before they fire you for not being able to keep up with being over worked, undertrained and under compensated. This company has no direction, your sold dreams you have to buy to keep a job. Constantly trying to come up with new systems, constant change, judgement from long term employees when theyve only been good at spinning their wheels for years. They give you the bare minimum but want exemplary results!

    The sentiments shared in this post have weighed heavily on me these past several months. I consider it my sole responsibility to ensure the health and well being of all employees. It’s a responsibility I have, and always will, take very seriously. Although this was difficult to read, I appreciate the sharing of perceptions by employees, past and present. Having this knowledge allows me the opportunity to rectify the situation and ensure that perceptions such as these do not become reality.
