Mission: SaleCycle's mantra is simple: 'Love What You Do' - Our team, work ethic and company culture is set around doing everything we can to ensure our clients are successful.
I have been working at SaleCycle full-time (More than a year)
Where do I start? It's not just about the snacks, drinks, cakes, flexible working hours, benefits package, the 35 hour week, excellent sick pay, maternity benefits, travel to other offices or the great people you get to work with who make it a fun place to have a job.
There is so much to SaleCycle that makes it great. One of the best is the fact that management never sit still. They want to do better, be better and be the best in the world, which currently we are. I've never worked for a company that listens so much to their employees and genuinely cares what they think and then does something about any issues they raise. I have seen a huge amount of positive change since I started in all areas of the business. It is so refreshing.
The culture created is one that recognises the talents of the people who work here and how each person plays a role in making us successful. Dom, the CEO, is truly inspirational and makes sure that he meets every new starter and encourages people to go direct to him if they have questions, comments or ideas. Not many CEOs make themselves this available to staff at ALL levels.
Is the company perfect? No, but it has personality, accepts it when things go wrong, moves on and tries to do better.
Does it get better? Definitely.
This is difficult to answer because people who work at SaleCycle really focus on continuous improvement. So today's gripe is tomorrow's improvement. Sometimes the improvements take longer than you would like to happen but the fact that things are constantly progressing is great.
You don't hang around for a decision to be made (which is fantastic) but sometimes this means that not everyone is kept fully in the loop. This is only because of the speed that the business moves at so it isn't really a con, but definitely something that needs to be kept an eye on so it doesn't become a problem.
Advice to Management
Keep listening to staff and changing things for the better. Never forget the power of positive feedback, especially when things are really busy.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SaleCycle in May 2017.
Initial application was easy enough, but was emailed a few weeks later to say the role was on hold, fair enough.
Got an email a month or so after that to say the role was back live, then a few weeks after that was told before they progressed my application they wanted me to state my salary expectations. Not a great impression that money is the first thing they want to consider before they even qualify me against the job (could have advertised the salary but that would be too straightforward).
After that I get a telephone interview request and informed the party well in advance of my availability, only to be left waiting and told they couldn't do that any more. At that point, as well as checking some of the reviews on here, I decided Salecycle wasn't for me. A shame really.
