    Pros

    Best management team. Best team culture. Can't beat the location, team outings. Keg in the office, Ping Pong. Legit

    No leads. All Cold Calling on the Dialer. No name recognition.

    Advice to Management

    The music is too loud.

    Pros

    I started at Signpost as a Sales Executive and got promoted to this role. The beauty of recruiting at Signpost isn't just having a product and people that you love to work with - it's actually the opportunity that I get to share with people.

    If you're looking to GROW A CAREER, THIS IS THE PLACE. The training for Salespeople here is awesome.

    As a Recruiter, I have an unbeatable team that supports my own growth and drive. President's club is on the horizon for the Recruiter who kills their numbers. The Recruiting team is well supported by the Sales team and the HR team. There's a lot of praise from the Executive team as well because this company understands the importance of finding great talent.

    Cons

    I think the only thing that is a little bit of a disconnect is the overall structure of Recruiting at Signpost. Each office has its own ecosphere, so while this could be seen as a con for some - it's a pro if you're comfortable with owning / creating your own process with what works best for you and your hiring team.

    Advice to Management

    I love that Recruiting straddles Sales and HR because it gives more of a holistic view of the employee life cycle as well as the sales process.

    Pros

    Product actually worth selling.
    Very supportive and lax work environment.
    Management is very open to engagement with employees.

    Cons

    Sales is a tough gig and the product only works for one language: english. Makes it tough to sell to Spanish-speakers or businesses that serve Spanish-speakers

    Pros

    Management will support you without being all over you. Allowing you to manage your pipeline, without daily audits about that deal from Jan.... The company culture and its people are the best Iv seen thus far. They do not cut corners. Every few weeks I find myself at a Rooftop open Bar, Picnic's, Boat Cruise....Bagels on Tuesdays, Birthday Cakes are made to order, the competition is friendly, the prizes are aggressive....the location is perfect. The owner actually waits in line for a bagel when they get delivered with the staff. He doesn't post that he does that on his IG, so I'm going to assume its genuine. The tech here is first class.

    Cons

    The Coffee Machine spews vile tasting coffee. It can get a little loud in there between the music and constant applauding from deals being sold all day. I guess its a nice problem to have. Its really hard work and you will be cold calling, but if you can sell under those conditions, you will be paid more here than all the others guys in this space I checked out.

    Advice to Management

    I could not ask for better management, this is anonymous, believe me I would tee off right here if I had any issues,

    Pros

    Really fun atmosphere, progressive company, laid back leadership and a winning environment. Nice to be part of a company where everyone seems to be on the same team, from upper management down to the new hires.

    Cons

    At times it felt a little bit too much like you were being micro-managed. As many of the new hires are straight out of college, the management feels like they need to treat them as kids. If you show up ten minutes late, you would get a lecture, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees more like adults, be less 'bro-ey'. Felt like the upper management was all in on something great together while the new hires had unrealistic goals, poor training, and not the best product to sell. The rate of turnover is extremely high, so that is something that management could look into and understand as to why it is happening, rather than being OK with it because there is an endless pool of college grads to prey on.
