Company reviews
"Solid Spot"
Current EmployeeAccount Executive
Can def make over 100k with good young people. I think much better than other simliar sale roles for young professionals. Not easy to stay there forever but some people do.

"Excellent Role"
Current EmployeeSenior Account Executive
I really enjoy working in sales for Indeed. The product is strong, however, the clients can be slow to learn and implacable. I really enjoy the company perks, and the sense of belonging. Upper level sales management can feel disconnected.

Cons:

"Great people and quite good solutions"
Former EmployeeAccount Executive
This can be a great job depending on the market. On the developed markets and in English speaking countries solutions deliver great results but be aware that in emerging markets it is not that obvious. Be prepared for a hard work and you will need some luck. In some countries you'd better sell via Partners as there is no offer in local currency and it is easier to prepare one solution for the end user. Great people, great culture, and it was fun in the office until Covid.
