    I have been working at ZeroTurnaround (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture & people to work with. Very attainable goals & lot's of opportunities to make money. Management is super transparent & helpful in achieving everyone's goals.

    Cons

    They don't match 401k & benefits overall could be better

    I worked at ZeroTurnaround full-time

    Pros

    -Potential to make $$$
    -Solid training program
    -Most of the sales managers are legit.

    Cons

    This company has more personal drama than an episode of Gossip Girl. It's like getting paid to attend high school all over again.

    ZT recruits, hires, and retains a specific type of personality to foster their frat house atmosphere. You start, and at first, you get swept up in the glamorous lifestyle of working at ZT: back bay location, music blaring all day, "fun" atmosphere, beer fridge, etc. You need to get a long with your team lead. If you don't, you're pretty much abandoned to fail and to be fired in a few short months.

    There are a ton of Boston startups with the same aggressive sales tactics as ZeroTurnaround. Working hard and drinking the kool aid is not a new concept. What makes ZeroTurnaround more alarming than others, is the potential of working in a largely negative, frat house environment. If you just graduated from college and are looking to continue that college atmosphere while learning the basics of cold calling, then ZT may be perfect for you.

    Advice to Management

    No idea. Protecting the culture seems to be more important than retaining employees and protecting their mental sanity.

    I have been working at ZeroTurnaround full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you do well at this entry level sales position you will be making 6 figures before the end of the first year to 18 months. Work hard, player harder. Great people, with an insatiable appetite for making money. Smart tech team as well.

    Cons

    Like any sales job there is stress particularly around the end quarters. We never take our foot off the gas from a goals perspective which is great but some people burn out because they can't compete

    Advice to Management

    Lose the middle school mentality. There is too much structure to the day. Need more freedom for individuals to grow

    I worked at ZeroTurnaround full-time

    Pros

    ZeroTurnaround is an awesome company that puts you in the driver seat for your career. If you want to succeed, you have to put in the effort. The office is always energetic and its hard to allow yourself to be in a bad mood.

    Cons

    It is fast-paced and you are very much in charge of your performance. Definitely not the place for someone that likes a quiet environment.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend that you spend more time at company events. Be with your team and then set them of on their own!

    Pros

    The people are nice.
    The training was very good.

    Cons

    ZeroTurnaround fosters a frat house atmosphere where you are working in a glorified call center with music blaring all day, making it difficult to hear people on the phone/

    Pros

    Best product on the market, company is well run, employees treated well. Excellent salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Run like a frat house and not conducive to a having a family...needs a better work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Give a little more flexibilty to more seasoned employees.

    Pros

    High energy, and really fantastic people. Great first place to work. Going to learn a skill that is invaluable in the working world. Opportunity to make a lot of money.

    Cons

    Your day to day work doesn't really change too much until you're a Junior Team Lead.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more open to ideas from reps, etc. Just b/c they're new, does not mean they don't have good ideas. Let people learn more earlier. It's better for them, and will also benefit you.

    Pros

    Excellent technology created by very smart & hard-working people. Founder is a really good guy that cares about his employees. Fun place to work.

    Cons

    Sometimes the cultural stuff seems to get prioritized over getting work done.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to recognize that long hours don't always equal productivity. Being in the building for 9 hours but heads-down and working through lunch gets more done than being there 12 hours, but playing ping pong for 4 of them...some people have families.

    Pros

    - Back Bay location. Got to watch the Patriots' victory parade from the window that winter.
    - Open floor plan. Nice spacious office.

    Cons

    - Very little diversity in the staff. It's mostly white men.
    - Frat culture. I got hit in the head with a ping pong ball... more than once.
    - Upper management coerced BDRs into staying long hours.
    - Cold calling.
    - Low base pay.
    - High turnover, probably because of everything I just listed.

    Advice to Management

    If you want new hires to stay, revamp your office culture. Most of your employees are just out of college, so why would you want them to stay in the college mindset?
