      Unrealistic quotas/low compensation

      Pros

      Great people to work with. Intelligent colleagues and great technology

      Cons

      You can’t expect people to grow 20-30% quarter over quarter. You can’t make up quotas every quarter with no rhyme or reason and it’s ridiculous that the higher the quotas get, the less money we make. Also the promotion path is the worst I’ve ever seen at any organization and pigeon holes you into never making any more money. Someone go pick the brains of one of your competitors and figure out how to put together a fair comp plan that incentivizes your enterprise teams. Also stop bragging every week how great the company is doing while at the same time, again, not paying your reps for these amazing accomplishments we keep breaking. People can barely hit these insane quotas you pull out of a hat and you don’t even hit accelerators until you hit 110%. If you don’t change it soon you will likely have a mass exodus of reps.

      Great Culture, Great Benefits and Pay, but disingenuous leadership

      Apr 21, 2021 - Account Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great pay and potential for growth

      Cons

      Leadership plays favorites, and is generally ingenuine when to comes to the employees. They have events and a great culture, but that is not be be confused with the fact that leaders do not care about you personally, especially if you are not a top performer. The attrition rate is atrocious. They fire employees on the 1st of every month. Management does not listen to employees when concerns are raised, especially when those concerns are in reference to supervisors, managers, and other leadership. Mangers purposefully push out people the do not like.

      Great Company Great Culture

      Apr 27, 2021 - Sales Manager in Tempe, AZ

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Pay and benefits are great. It can be very intense working there but they give you tons of support and direction to make sure you are successful.

      Cons

      None really. If you aren't comfortable with a fast moving, performance driven role then it's probably not best for you. If you are then there's not a lot to really call a Con.

      Overall great place to work so long as you make the 'in' crowd

      Feb 15, 2021 - Sales Account Manager in Phoenix, AZ

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great pay and benefits. The work can be hard but it can be done and it's worth it.

      Cons

      Most people will say that leaders play favorites but at ZipRecruiter it's a very real issues. What will get 100 people fired w/o question will get the 'in crowd' group a meeting with Directors where they discuss the strategy to actively cover up the most favored agent's actions so they don't have to be fired. It's not unheard of for certain payoffs to happen during these meetings as well like "this next month's bonus check" to make it all go away. No matter how much they work to keep it under wraps, these most favored agents eventually go out drinking with the rest of us and tell the tales. So keep your nose extra clean and definitely play the game of endearing yourself to the Directors.

      Better than most

      Mar 25, 2021 - Enterprise, Key Accounts Executive in Los Angeles, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Company takes care of its people; pays well, offers Sandler Sales training, and CEO is fully engaged.

      Cons

      When systems or procedures fall short, executive team likes to say “This is a rocket ship being built mid flight”. With 1k employees, start-up jargon like that tends to come off as more of a cop out, rather than a harbinger of adventure.

      Garbage Company with Garbage Leaders

      Apr 12, 2021 - Marketing

      Pros

      You'll learn a lot, but at the expense of your mental health

      Cons

      The C-suite and upper management here are all straight up sociopaths who couldn't care less about the people who make up the company. Management constantly begging for 5 star reviews to try and hide the bad reviews.
