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

    Pros

    A lot of good people to work with, always willing to do their best. Good benefits and a good place to learn.

    Cons

    The will of growing the team sometimes can bring people that are not very tight with the culture, and this is very bad for the ones that are already inside RV.

    I worked at Red Ventures full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have great training and coaching and a fun work environment with opportunities to move up to other positions.

    Cons

    The hours are miserable for new employees. You'll be working at least one weekend and usually abnormal shifts. You are encouraged to skirt around the truth when selling things and this can be draining for some who prefer a more honest job.

    Pros

    - Generally positive experience working at RV, especially if you’re young in your career and you’re not doing sales. - Tons of work available. You’ll never be bored. - Lots of opportunities to work on cool, modern tech. Thankfully not a lot of legacy apps. - Great benefits and amenities - Cheap coffee/food at cafes - Met a lot of smart, interesting people who are experts in what they do. - Work/life...

    Cons

    - Changes happen often. In my year here, my team has switched structures and focus 6 times. I’m pretty agile but if you’re not okay with things changing constantly, this will not be a good place for you. - No effort made on employee retention. The average tenure is between 12-18 months. - Pay is below market and is capped. Raises/promotions only come during biannual reviews. - Any changes to the team (including...

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to retain employees. I’ve lost several team members to other companies simply because they paid better. Remove the layers it takes to get any meaningful change done.

    Accept employee feedback.

    I worked at Red Ventures full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Made an insane amount my first year there. Some fun events every now and then. All inbound customers. You get paid quickly and timely with many bonuses.

    Cons

    The Higher ups seem confused and make constant changes that don’t seem to correlate with the issues. There are mistakes that can cause you to get written up or money taken away from you and you sometimes won’t know what they are till you do them. PTO is extremely hard to plan and use. Not a long term career if you are going into sales, They will drop even the best sellers for minor infractions that others got to slide...

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

        Pros

        Good training, good benefits, on-site amenities like gym and cafeteria

        Cons

        There is a reason most sales agents only last a few months at RV. It’s extremely high stress with little room for advancement, and it’s apparent from the beginning that you are just a number. You used to be able to make good money, but it is becoming increasingly harder to make a decent commission check with the constant change in comp plans. It’s also becoming more and more micro managed, which makes the stress level...

        Advice to Management

        Stop lowering the comp plans and making it harder for sales agents to make good money when they deserve it. Update the ridiculous bathroom policy (you have to use your break time in order to go to the bathroom). Give employees more flexibility with time off.

        I worked at Red Ventures full-time (Less than a year)

        Pros

        Amenities: On-site cafes, bowling alley, tennis courts, gyms, and basketball court Compensation Package: Matched 401k, hourly plus commission, full benefits available

        Cons

        Never any time to use the amenities unless you go to work early or stay late. The commission per sale changes daily

        Advice to Management

        Allow for longer break times to use amenities and to keep employees from getting burnt out. There is no work/life balance either.
