    I have been working at Signpost full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In the past there were difficulties with the culture and transparency of the office, as well as a lack of quality leadership in upper level management. About 3 months into 2017 things took an incredible upswing for the better. The entire culture of the company has shifted in a positive direction. Incredible middle and upper management, a positive shift in culture and transparency from the top down, and a great training program with dedicated resources to make you successful. I’ve never worked for a company that was so enriching and cared about the success of the career advancement of their employees so much. You make your own success here. There is no micromanaging unless you’re performing poorly and if you’re performing poorly it’s your own fault for not following the advice and guidance of veterans and leaders. Unlimited PTO. Two thumbs up!

    Cons

    I wish there was a 401k match or enhancements to benefits. There is unlimited PTO but you can be pressured into not using it.

    Pros

    • High-Volume Cold Call Sales – While most wouldn't list this as a Pro, it is the specific reason Signpost helps employees new to sales, not only grasp it, but to excel in it. The volume gives loads of experience in a very short period of time. It's also an excellent challenge.

       • World-Class Training – If you are hired at Signpost in the first place, and don't make it through the training program (A 2-Month Ramp with every resource available,) it's because you didn't work hard enough.

    • There isn't room for everyone, and Signpost is a meritocracy. – This is a Pro for me, because I believe in surrounding yourself with the best of the best. Signpost is a lean machine, and doesn't have room for slack. They're forgiving, but if you can't hit your numbers, you're out!

    Cons

    • You're working in a Start-up! – Adaptability is a must. There is constant change, and some people are left behind when they can't adapt.

       • Mediocre Communication – This can always improve. While all companies have to keep their cards close to their chest, oftentimes it feels as if you don't know what's actually going on behind the scenes, as most information from the VPs is only delivered in a monthly All Company Meeting.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus more & more on the well being of your employees! People who stay at Signpost, stay for the people. Happy employees are passionate employees!

    I worked at Signpost full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of Snacks, keg in office, decent benefits, and lots of company outings/parties

    Cons

    High metric expectations, bad leads, one size fits all product that doesn't cater to individual businesses. Base pay/commission does not compensate well for the amount of work that you do. I was more successful than most of my colleagues and just got burnt out on the daily metrics of cold calling over 100 businesses and having 150+ minutes of talk time. Also I hated the high energy sales office with loud music and noisy conversations/arguments happening all the time around me. Not worth it to me.

    Advice to Management

    Get better leads//pay employees more

    Pros

    There have been a lot of great changes. It is a start-up and I've gone through a lot of changes in my time here, but they've led to being a very happy employee. My manager/team lead is amazing and has true New York hustle that has helped me accomplish my sales and personal development goals.

    Cons

    It's a grind. When you start, expect to cold call. But hard work pays off and being a top performer will get you to your goals.

    Advice to Management

    The Senior VPs always have our best interest at hearts. I think they do an excellent job of showing that they care about the reps in the company. The national managers are great and the most supportive people on the floor. Keep doing what your doing.
