    I worked at WeddingWire full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Incredibly quick opportunities for advancement for high pay, very challenging yet rewarding. Always receive credit when its due, fantastic work life balance with great perks and company culture. Fantastic people who become your family inside and outside of the office.

    Cons

    Unstable at times with a lot of change always going on, which can actually be a good thing at points since it does often open up positions. Kind of difficult to go into management at times as well, since positions open up in waves that are hard to anticipate, but sometimes not for long stretches. Maintains a start up feel which is good in some ways, but also maintains a feeling that anything can change at any time. Really...

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a good job, but try a little harder in motivating high performers in ways that makes it feel like they are being challenged, not pressured when they are in slumps as opposed to letting it ride out and reacting accordingly.

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

    Pros

    - Fun work environment - Supportive and friendly coworkers -Amazing management staff -Great training This is my first sales role, but not my first job. I came to WW because I was miserable in my last job and desperate for a change. It was the best career decision I have ever made! I was so scared to get into sales, I thought I wouldn't be good at it. They teach you everything you need to know. Seriously, they have...

    Cons

    - Stressful job: this is for any sales job, not exclusive to WeddingWire. It can be stressful when you're having a rough week (or even month). Sales is definitely an emotional roller coaster sometimes but if you put in the work, you'll be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing! - the incentives are great - I love that the CEO occasionally walks around the office and makes an effort to get to know/chat with employees- you won't find very many global companies with CEOs like that! -My manager is great and so helpful, and so are all the other managers as well! They don't care whose team you're on, they just want you to do well.

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

    Pros

    A cool and exciting place to work. They have a nice amenities for employees to enjoy. You also get your own personal laptop.

    Cons

    Didn't feel like there was enough support for certain teams after training was completed. Some manager worked remote so they were only accessible by phone. I had better luck being coached by nearby co-workers then upper management. If they had someone within the office to "hand hold" newer employees to be successful, then I believe they would be setting each person up for success. Not just throwing you in the ring, and...

    I worked at WeddingWire

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere if you work in the HQ in DC.

    Cons

    If you work in a satellite office you get zero attention paid by the head office. The company is working as if they were still a start up, but they've gotten too big to operate that way. Company talks a big talk as far as benefits go, but in truth they are pretty awful (i.e. 401k and maternity leave)
