    I have been working at Yodle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some roles can work on teams with cool technologies to learn and play with
    For the most part people are not working crazy hours except for certain teams/people
    The high turnover also brings opportunity

    Cons

    Many meetings just to have meetings
    A lot of politics and posturing
    Very hard to get things done on infrastructure since Web.com took over
    Turnover is high, most of the best people are moving on
    Extremely corporate environment
    Pay is on the low side compared to other tech companies
    Cramped floor is extremely loud and distracting
    There is a push towards devs taking more and more on call responsibilities and responding to things faster

    Advice to Management

    Insulate teams as much as possible from the whims of random executives in Jacksonville
    Start treating employees with more respect for their time and effort

    Pros

    Good data
    Fun atmosphere
    Lovely People

    Cons

    Low base, High attrition, No autonomy

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your reps like school children. Give them more trust and flexibility, let the smart people use their business acumen on calls and stop trying to babysit everyone always. No one will grow in this role if they have no ability to develop themselves organically. Just to be frank, I did well but saw a ton who could've been better if not suffocated by process.

    Pros

    Uncapped commissions
    Casual wear
    There are areas with free snacks, coffee machines and sodas. Wine and beer on Fridays at the end of the say.

    Cons

    Work environment is very laid-back as an outsider looking in but once you have the job you are micromanaged yo the point where you are forced to ask for permission to use the restroom.

    Advice to Management

    Male sure the managers are treating employees as adults especially when they are producing.

    Pros

    Fun, good training, free lunch, solid training, approachable management. Relaxed dress code. Gym and showers on site.

    Cons

    It can sometimes be a ZOO. Loud, crazy work environment. Free food and sitting all day will make you gain weight so be careful!

    Advice to Management

    There is a little bit of good ole boy favoritism. Rely to much on scripts. Employees are basically trained Monkeys.
