    An educational endeavor with an exciting startup focused on marketing to and hiring local women

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBeing a startup, all marketing ideas and incentive packages for my local area were considered and given a voice to management. It was fun to try these new ideas and have an immediate response in the local community given the e-platform Plum had designed. It also was a great way to get to know locally owned businesses and help them increase their presence in the Houston market.

    ConsAs with many start ups, there were changes in management every month. This made driving certain initiatives at the local level challenging.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDue to the constant changes in upper management, there was a strong disconnect between those designing the platform and those on the streets making the sales. It was often difficult to move a marketing initiative forward locally before corporate funds were allotted elsewhere and the project canceled.

    Can make an impact

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsYou can make a big impact here. I feel like what I do actually matters and that my contributions are recognized. There's enough work to go around that if I see there's a gap or a need, I can be proactive and own it.

    ConsThe team is very small and people are feeling overwhelmed. We're definitely making progress in turning around the company, but some additional people to the team would help.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Bumpy like any Startup, but great people

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsReally smart people, energetic culture, room to grow and explore your ideas. I hear the new management team is really smart and creative.

    ConsIt went through some bumpy times like any startup, especially in the daily deal space. People got laid off, it really sucked. But a lot of the things people said on here tended to be rumors that were easily propagated because every one worked from home and spent a lot of time gossiping and freaking out for no reason. They definitely made some REALLY poor decisions, but there were also a lot of incredible people that were trying to do their best.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
