    I worked at Purple - Intelligent Spaces full-time (More than a year)

    - Idea of product is one of the best in the market
    - Easy to find accounts as they genuinely have a lot of customers and partners
    - You will easily fit in
    - HR takes care of you

    Cons

    - There are no senior sales leaders
    - Salary is well below market standards
    - Sales Manager is only covering himself and not helping you at all
    - There needs to be a big change with who takes the company forward in terms of product and sales - they have the potential to be the best and their people deserve this
    - Strategy changes from month to month and there is no clear vision going forward

    Advice to Management

    - Please make the needed changes at the top of the tree
    - You need a clear goal where you want to be as a company and stick to that for a bit longer than a few months
    - Take more care of your people and you will see a lot more positive energy and vibes
