Company reviews
"Great place to get your foot in the door to other places"
Current EmployeeAccount Manager
The workplace culture is unbeatable along with the unlimited PTO. Its very fast paced and an ever changing workplace. I enjoy the people I work with I love the people and the job in general.

"Good place to learn, need more structure and better management"
Current EmployeeSenior Account Executive
Indeed is a great company and enhances the purpose of everyday job. The salary could be better and it needs more organised structure. Quotas are not calculated in a clear way

"Great company and mission, losing focus "
Current EmployeeSenior Account Executive
Amazing company that knows their place in the market. A little too big for their own head at times. Staffing issues causes more pressure than SLT realizes

"Stagnant Sales"
Current EmployeeAccount Executive
Too much talent for hopes of advancement. 6+ years as a rep before you'll be promoted to a team lead, not even a manager. All other aspects of the company are great.
