    I have been working at SaleCycle full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I’ve been with the company longer than any position that I’ve held previously. I think it’s good fit for me and keeps me motivated. I know people across the digital marketing sector who are concerned about market conditions due to BREXIT, Retail woes, GDPR etc but the business is always transparent with its financial updates and I feel I made a good choice when looking a company with financial security and big ambitions....

    Cons

    I think the desire to grow has meant that hiring standards dropped for a while and rectifying that meant clearing out some people who would be better suited to other careers or places of employment. It’s a shame but its a business at the end of the day and personally I want to work with the best so I understand it.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on quality of hires rather than quantity.

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

    Pros

    This is the first review I've given on Glassdoor, so I'd like to think that counts for something. I've been at SaleCycle for half a year now but have been at various tech companies in North East England for the last 6+ years. SaleCycle is a rare gem for developers. The biggest pro for me is how the teams are managed, with a flat structure everyone has a say in how projects are architected and built and I've never...

    Cons

    No companies perfect, for me the biggest con is the flat structure. I find that sometimes decisions that could have been made quickly can go on for longer than needed - sometimes you need a person to dictate the solution and a hierarchy of decision makers. We still have a reliance on a legacy tech stack, but as I've said above it's being migrated away bit by bit. Most projects sitting in teams are around splitting...

    Pros

    A great company with a good culture and many great benefits including healthy snacks, working from other offices, unlimited holidays.

    Cons

    Only thing to mention would be to introduce a remote working policy.

    I worked at SaleCycle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I’ve been meaning to write this review for months. Although I was only at Salecycle for a few months and left (on great terms) purely for personal reasons - it was 100% the best company I have ever worked for. I loved so many things about the place. Where do I start? Salecycle are innovative and collaborative and always looking for ways to optimise and improve. The staff are very competent but also happy to collaborate...

    Cons

    Not a single one that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    My only suggestion to management is - please consider more opportunities for permanent home working. I completely understand that the family atmosphere is down to everyone being so close and friendly and spending their time together but a right person would make it work regardless.

    I worked at SaleCycle full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    SaleCycle have genuine and lovely staff who are awesome to work with. Whether it'd be in the UK office or US/Paris/Singapore, you'd always get help if you asked. Leaving was an extremely tough decision. Work/life balance was great with semi-flexi time and unlimited holiday. Working in sales has its ups and downs but the sales team were very good at sticking together and keeping the positive energy. The opportunity...

    Cons

    Whilst the growth can be exciting, it also comes with its flaws. Sales in any company does have a higher turnover than other roles. In my time at SaleCycle where I numerous Head of Sales, all with different ideas and plans. Some introducing multiple spreadsheets to report on when everything we did was already logged on SalesForce. Regions were changed numerous times so relationships you'd built up in 3 months were then...

    Advice to Management

    I don't think that I can give you much advice, you're already doing a great job. Yes, mistakes have been made but they weren't drastic and like any growing company, you're learning like everyone else is. SaleCycle's an awesome place and I have some great memories of my time there, I'd thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking to move into marketing tech.

    I always thought this post would come when I one day sadly leave the company. It felt as though it would the best point to truly reflect on an experience somewhere. I feel compelled to write something now however, having seen what I would consider to be slanderous comments/reviews on here about a company which I really don't think deserves it. I understand there will always be people in a business who become upset or...

    Not the business' fault, but Park Management at Rainton are... a little difficult. Whether it's parking problems (which are thankfully now solved), the temperature of the office or even disputes with our food/drink vendors that regularly come, there's always something that seems to be an issue with them. Communication could still be better across the company, although this feels like another process which is gradually...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to think about people first. It's not just a nice thing to say or a good selling point when recruiting, it's genuinely having a really positive impact on everybody, and that ties directly into the productivity and the progression of the company. I love hearing the disbelief of people when I tell them about where we work, and that's all down to the huge efforts to keep people happy and engaged.

    Pros

    Annual leave allowance is decent, free junk food and dress code are cool

    Cons

    Everything else. Especially the top management. “Bullies” doesn’t describe it enough. Unrealistic expectations, mixture of high tech and old school almost local government like behaviour, fake smiles, fake sympathy, fake everything. Also what I have heard from the current female employees - extremely sexist - unless you are a boy in the boys club. I haven’t experienced it myself though. The pros are also hidden cons....
