    I have been working at SaleCycle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I always thought this post would come when I one day sadly leave the company. It felt as though it would the best point to truly reflect on an experience somewhere. I feel compelled to write something now however, having seen what I would consider to be slanderous comments/reviews on here about a company which I really don't think deserves it. I understand there will always be people in a business who become upset or disheartened about particular things, but I really do believe there have been some extreme posts on here which simply lie about SaleCycle and are not truly reflective of the company - which is a shame for everyone who is here and loving it.

    It's interesting to read back through months/years of posts/review to see exactly what accusations and predictions for the company have come to fruition. Some have said "it's a sinking ship", "the product isn't competitive", "destined to fail" - however, of course none of these have come true and the company continues to grow and progress more than ever! I have been at SaleCycle for over 3.5 years now and I can honestly say it has been brilliant from start to finish.

    Some particular pros for me are:

    The people - this isn't a normal company where everybody has their own goals and agendas that come before everything else, people here truly want to help each other and the business succeed. Clearly recruitment has a blueprint for the kind of person who aligns to the SaleCycle culture and it's working.

    The perks - unlimited holidays, free food every week, free CAKE on payday, your birthday off if it lands on a weekday, paid volunteer time, opportunities to work in other offices, pool tables, ping pong table, the list goes on... and on and on.

    The progression/innovation of the company - In 8+ years the company continues to grow and no matter what you might read on here in some reviews about problems/shortcomings, it stands as strong as ever and continues to dispel any doubt that is it a market-leader and will be for the foreseeable future.

    The intentions of the management - This is is very rapidly growing company and issues do crop up naturally as with any business which processes/organisation needs to catch up on, but I feel like Senior Management truly do have the best intentions in every circumstance and that is why things are resolved so well. People come first, and it's not just something that is said - it's really the case.

    Cons

    Not the business' fault, but Park Management at Rainton are... a little difficult. Whether it's parking problems (which are thankfully now solved), the temperature of the office or even disputes with our food/drink vendors that regularly come, there's always something that seems to be an issue with them.

    Communication could still be better across the company, although this feels like another process which is gradually catching up (as many others do with fast-growing companies).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to think about people first. It's not just a nice thing to say or a good selling point when recruiting, it's genuinely having a really positive impact on everybody, and that ties directly into the productivity and the progression of the company. I love hearing the disbelief of people when I tell them about where we work, and that's all down to the huge efforts to keep people happy and engaged.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at SaleCycle (Durham, England) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process felt really relaxed and there was no pressure while at the same time being really organised and fluid. The interview was great and I was put at my ease quickly. The turn around time for the decision was really fast and the communication between offer and starting date was excellent.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked questions that allowed me demonstrate my style, knowledge, skills and my personality. These were focused on the areas that were a priority for the role as well as questions based on future requirements of the role.   1 Answer
