What is health insurance like at Ecosystems?

Pros

Pay and health insurance is decent.

Cons

The "HR" department is one person. They have no organization or real directive whatsoever. Their product offering is outdated and so is their business model. Their office is tiny and essentially windowless. Management is quick to throw tantrums and entirely unprofessional. It's a really depressing work environment overall.

Pay and health insurance is decent.

What is the retirement plan like at Ecosystems?

Pros

You will get more responsibility opportunities in your first 6 months at Ecosystems than many people will get in 5 years at another company. I was talking to clients within a few weeks of starting and meeting with leadership teams within the year. It truly accelerated my professional growth, set me on a steep upwards trajectory, and given me skills and confidence that I am grateful for every day. The expectations and quarterly goals can be demanding but they enabled me to think creatively and reach beyond what I thought was possible. I include them here with the pros. The health insurance contribution, 401k matching, and profit sharing are very generous. Fantastic, once in a lifetime leadership Ecosystems was VERY flexible when I decided I wanted to relocate. They worked hard to keep me on and let me work remotely. The company overall is very dedicated to employee growth and development

Cons

In the end, the technology sales and customer success-oriented work did not resonate with me 100% and made it hard to stay motivated. Especially when it came to participating in some of the industry leadership work (podcasts, conferences) that Ecosystems was engaging in. This was more of a personal preference for me though.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing! Leadership is great and you are doing some remarkable things in the industry. My one piece of advice would be to give employees a little more flexibility in the level they want to engage in the industry-oriented activities that are not fully within the core work.

The health insurance contribution, 401k matching, and profit sharing are very generous.

What kind of career opportunities exist at Ecosystems?

Pros

You work with brilliant people and you can learn so much. The company creates a family atmosphere and a company culture that can't be match. There is great potential for growth and your colleagues will help you lay out a plan to get there. Leadership listens to it's employees and is not out of touch. The company believes in giving back and I really enjoyed the work we did to help the community. Eco is very innovative and creative people will thrive here. They challenge you to be better. Good work is rewarded and recognized often.

Cons

Sometimes the projects can be demanding or have a tight deadline which may require longer hours but the leadership realizes it and encourages staff to recharge and take time off upon completion.

Continue to be innovative and push the envelope. It is rare that you work for a company that gets so many things right. It has been awesome to watch you all grow and become so diverse. Continue to be a great company to work for.

How are senior leaders perceived at Ecosystems?

Pros

There are many wonderful things about working for Ecosystems. I will name my top 5. Leadership is very bright, forward thinking, personable, caring and value each of us as individuals. Personalities and culture have evolved in a good way. You will love getting to know them. RICHES is an acronym for the values the company holds. Respect, integrity, courage, honesty, excellence and service to others. We use this when we hire and results in such a wonderful team of people who operate with high standards and who are highly supportive of each other. You will love to work with the people here. When we read about the latest trends in the industry of customer success, our company has already been doing most of the recommended behaviors. We even partner with the leading consulting companies to keep us up-to-date. We also started a special group called the Advisory Ecosystems to keep us and the members aware of what other successful and growing companies are doing. You will be proud to be a part of such a forward thinking company. Leadership was curious about my strengths and interests. They listened and aligned them to what the company needed. Because of this, my role now is completely different than my role when I first started years ago. We have formalized this into an IDP (Individual Development Plan) which is reviewed frequently. Because Ecosystems is always gaining knowledge and it is tied to each of our roles, we are also growing and gaining knowledge. You will grow here in the direction you want. We have "Freedom with Responsibility" here. If you are responsible and self-motivated, you will enjoy hitting your defined goals (and being recognized for it), in the manner you want to hit them. You don't have to worry about tracking hours or vacation days. I am working full-time with multiple children at home. I especially appreciate this freedom with responsibility during this pandemic since I do not want to put them into daycare or have babysitters.

Cons

It is very busy which is a good thing, you will take on a lot of responsibility so be ready to be gritty, persistent and good with time-management to achieve your goals. For those that have distractions while working from home, goals have remained unchanged during COVID (which ultimately is a good thing) but be ready to maintain the same levels of full-time productivity.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing - especially recognizing successes of employees. Hire more. Have more "kitchen talk" about benefits and salary during IDPs.

Leadership is very bright, forward thinking, personable, caring and value each of us as individuals.
