    Pros

    Everyone at Signpost is committed to your success and will continue to be an ally to you as you grow into the best salesman you can be. Their training program for new sales hires is very extensive and put in place so you can succeed no matter your previous experience in sales.

    Cons

    The job is consisting of making cold-calls to small business owners to get them to see the value of the Signpost software. Cold-calling is not for everyone and can be a grind.

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

    Pros

    Gain a lot of sales experience in a short period of time Good first job in sales or out of college You can wear regular clothes Contests and events Young workforce and "start-up" environment When you're doing well it's not that bad and there's somewhat less pressure

    Cons

    High turnover from new hires to management Not a sustainable job Draining and monotonous day to day role of cold calling, thousands of the same conversation Customer base is small businesses and mostly contractors Product does not work well for the majority of the customers Micromanagement and heavily focused on metrics Promotion path is still the same exact role with a pay raise Hard to be consistent so your...

    I worked at Signpost full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    - There are a number of smart, driven people on the tech, product, and marketing teams. - The product idea is sound - Good work/life balance - Exciting start-up culture where you're encouraged to move quickly - Competitive pay and benefits - Opportunity to wear multiple hats

    Cons

    - Over investment in outbound sales, under investment in R&D - Product initiatives are driven by what sells rather than what actually helps SMBs leading to low retention - Empty mission statement - Lack of vision for the company; the emphasis is on company valuation rather than building a world class product - High turnover in sales and upper management - Fear based engineering culture

    Advice to Management

    There are some major systemic issues that need to be fixed in order for Signpost to succeed. It's a shame because there are some legitimately smart, talented people on the team who end up leaving due to frustration.

    Pros

    Training is first class and hands on. You get the opportunity to be a closer in an entry level sales job. As long as you are ready to be coachable and put in the work, the passion of the training managers will elevate your skill level and overall confidence in life. It is also rewarding to sell a product that actually works (given you sell to the right business) and helps small business owners survive in today's environment.

    Cons

    There is limited mobility upwards for a fast-growing company. It is easy to burn out in the 4-8 month period because it is hard work and the role does not evolve.

    Advice to Management

    Create a four-day work week structure for top performers so they stick around longer and there is something to look forward to for reps in month 3-12.

    Pros

    Everyone is passionate and loves where they work. I'm just starting here, but can't believe I'll be surrounded by intelligent, encouraging and friendly coworkers all the time.

    Cons

    So far I have no complaints!

    I have been working at Signpost full-time

    Pros

    Great "first job" to get your feet wet in telemarketing and cold calling if you are looking to start your sales career right out of college.

    Cons

    SMB product offering with no real footprint into mid-market or enterprise accounts. Technology is way behind it's competitors. Lots of turn-over on the sales team and management team at all levels. Tech and marketing is stale. No career path....

    Pros

    kegs - i guess, like so many "tech startups" it's just a way to try and get employees to enjoy working there instead of realizing they're all recent college grads making just above minimum wage fun organizations - rec league sports teams, quarterly excursions, happy hours snacks provided

    Cons

    not the best pay really high turnover cold calling

    Advice to Management

    pay people better. there's only so much you can do with an organization that's all cold calling which may be fun for some but is terrible for monst

    Pros

    Best training in Sales you'll find. Can't imagine a better place to start when you WANT to do well but don't know HOW yet. Training at Signpost for our Sales team is killer, and we have too much fun to top it off. Cold calling gets a bad reputation. Don't let that keep you from Signpost if you're craving a self-driven job in sales.

    Cons

    It's hard work. That's not a con, just don't expect not to have to with a keg in the office.
