    I worked at Advantis Global for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a great job fresh out of college. Clear cut career path and ample room for growth. Must have hunger, drive, work-ethic, and thick skin to succeed in this industry. Amazing CEO and Founders and a SUPER FUN team/work environment. Definitely a work-hard/play hard atmosphere. Office has great views of the Bay Bridge and is centrally located in SOMA. Advantis is great!

    Cons

    1% commission to start with and semi-low starting salary, but if you work hard, you can be promoted quickly.

    Pros

    I was working in IT in NYC and was trying for the longest time to relocate and transition to another position out of state. I've worked with Branden Luna from Advantis Global who not only Exceeded my expectation from a recruitment agency but also exceeded expectation as a human being. My Faith in humanity has been restored. This Guy was awesome, He listens and generally cares, I had to go through almost 7 interview and...

    I worked at Advantis Global full-time

    Pros

    Great launching pad into a career in tech sales. Most of the recruiting team is comprised of recent college grads hungry to grow their career in tech, and this is a great place to start. As an entry level tech recruiter, you are exposed to a multitude of different technologies and development methods/processes, all excellent foundation knowledge of the IT industry. During my time there, I made friends for life with...

    Cons

    As I mentioned before, be cautious of the positive reviews and the responses from the company itself on this website. The technology used at Advantis is ancient, I honestly have no idea how they function with tools that operate way below industry standards. I commend the business development team for the hard work and long hours they put in daily (which can easily be reduced by simply providing them with the bare minimum...

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent with your teams and stop setting unrealistic goals and making false promises. Looking back, it seems as though everyone is set up to fail by attempting to strive for these impossible measurements. Management always preaches how transparent they are with their teams, but this is definitely not true. They withhold and/or delay major company announcements because they don’t know how to effectively address...

    Very helpful and Understanding team. I worked with Jayme Karr and her team and they were always very responsive and very highly technical.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Advantis Global full-time

    Pros

    Young company, ambitious employees, broad potential client pool.

    Cons

    Like all sales positions, the metrics are aspirational and employees are put under considerable stress. This is a very literal workplace; boil down your ambition to a dollar figure and strive for that figure, and your manger will do everything they can to help you reach that.

    Advice to Management

    Just be clear about your objectives with your employees. They should know that its cutthroat, but just ensure that they understand the nature of the job.

    Pros

    Advantis is a great company to work for. From the beginning of the process Linda my recruiter has been professional, responsive and accommodating. With the attentive help from the rest of the team, I had a relatively painless interview and onboarding process.

    Cons

    No cons, I just wish the job was available sooner.
