    Pros

    Management and Executives are available to talk and listen on most occasions. They are attentive and compassionate which makes it fun to come in everyday. The office is beautiful and has primo location is an incredible touch but it is truly the people that make working fun day in and day out. This company will have your back and stick it's neck out for you if you work hard.

    Cons

    The company is making tremendous efforts to grow and make a leap to the next level in this space. Ambition always lends itself uncertainties I suppose?

    Pros

    They give anyone a shot at building a sales career. Really good training that gets you up to speed very quickly.

    Cons

    It's a grind. 100+ cold call dialing all day long. Sales management motivates by yelling. I am an adult, I have a family, I am motivated to make a career for them, not show up and be yelled at all day long. Pretty much the entire floor turns over after 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    -Working in sales isn't all about money. -Clear out the massive drug problem on the floor. Multiple reps are high every day.

      Former Employee - Senior Account Executive in Scottsdale, AZ

      I worked at OutboundEngine full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Great Culture and Good People and Cool Product.

      Cons

      Drinking is permitted and it seems cool at the time but it’s really not cool to allow that in the workplace

      Pros

      Great atmosphere and work culture! Great opportunity to make money for the ambitious rep. If you're just looking for a 9-5 or you're complacent....keep looking. If you want to maximize your potential and grow with the company you are apart of.. look no further.

      Cons

      This environment is not for everyone. Very one sided approach at times... needs more women that can hang with the environment.

      Advice to Management

      Make your leaders lead. And get to know your reps.

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

      Pros

      Supportive sales culture and fun environment makes work enjoyable. Fridge stays stocked with sparkling waters and cold brew coffee is always on tap. The base salary is generous and compensation for closing each deal is great. Managers are willing to help you achieve goals. Great opportunities for sales development skills. Short sales cycle makes it relatively quick to earn money.

      Cons

      Sales is difficult and you have to produce to earn commission. While I genuinely enjoy working here you still have to be capable of closing a deal.

      Advice to Management

      Screen candidates coming in to make sure that they know what the expectations are before they commit to working here.

      Pros

      Amazing high energy team of sales professionals that strive for greatness. I've worked for many different sales organizations from large corporations, to startups, and everything in between, and nothing compares to the energy, and excitement of this organization. From the CEO, to the JAE team (least tenured sales agents), everyone has a focus, and a drive to see this company succeed. Its amazing how each day, the passion...

      Cons

      I don't know if this is necessarily a CON unless you have poor work ethic, but be prepared to be on your "A" game, whatever that looks like depending on your experience level. This place is not for those looking for a quick base check, and kick your feet up. You will work, you will put in time, and you will be held to a high standard, and anything less than 100% focus/effort is frowned upon. If you aren't in it to be...

      Advice to Management

      Be open to a more flexible work/life balance for employees with kids or those that prefer to not fight 1 hr+ of traffic each way per day :). Work from home option once per week for at least the more tenured agents would be AMAZING. It can be tough to adjust to not being around especially if you came from a previous more flexible work environment where you are more actively involved. Work from home/flex work space is...

      Pros

      I have been with the company for over 4 years in several different positions. The company is great at taking care of its employees and offer a lot of opportunity to grow or move to different positions at the company. The culture and people here are awesome. I love the high energy the sales floor brings and if you commit to the process and trainings you have the ability to make 175k plus. Working here opens doors for the...

      Cons

      It isn't easy. It is a grind, but if you are willing to put in the time it is worth it. Definitely not a place to clock in and clock out.
