    I have been working at HomeAdvisor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great coworkers, lots of opportunity to move up, supportive and communicative during COVID, lots of opportunity to make a buttload of money if you work hard

    Making cold calls is obviously unpleasant/ draining, the company isn't really looking out for the contractors

    Pros

    Fun environment to work in, takes a lot of work and can be very rewarding if you put the work in

    Cons

    Not the best business model overall and you will hear a lot of negative things about HomeAdvisor while calling contractors. Found myself losing belief in the product which makes it hard to sell.

    Pros

    Awesome people, fun start-up type office (keg, happy hours, ping pong, games, etc.), catered lunch

    Awful commission structure, you are listened to constantly and micromanaged like crazy, messed up office politics, immoral sales practices, and they regularly fire and replace tenured reps to avoid paying out benefits.
