    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Indeed full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - The people are young, sociable and have fresh perspectives

    Cons

    - Difficult to move up and pursue higher career aspirations

    Advice to Management

    Indeed is doing great! Keep up the good work. Senior management - introduce more ways for people to move up in the company or you will lose your best employees.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Tons of free food - Lots of vacation - Convenient location (Yonge/Bloor) - Spoiled by the company

    Cons

    - Young management - Lots of office politics - Job itself is boring/repetitive; very call center and micro managing - Not something you'd want to do for more than a year unless you are being spoon fed by management through the reassignment of spending accounts - Selling Indeed's product is tough because they offer the service for free so it is an uphill battle when trying to justify spending money

    Advice to Management

    - Quotas need to be more realistic; appreciation for the market and the ability to sell based on business practices

    Pros

    snacks, environment, location, laptop, people

    Cons

    I was beyond excited to start my career here at indeed, to learn, to grow as a young sales professional. Things were amazing my first 2 quarters....and then...things took a turn for the worst. I understand organizations go through changes, which is fine and normal. However it is wrong to make the employees who are bringing in the revenue to feel as if they are not adequate enough, rather than being transparent and providing...

    I have been working at Indeed full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Unlimited Snacks -Great People -Great free lunches on Mondays

    Cons

    I have never been at a company that has experienced such a sudden shift in employee morale. They obviously thought we were making too much money and significantly increased our quotas to the point where less than 5% of reps are going to hit target. I know so many people that are looking elsewhere. I would not recommend working here. The most frustrating part is all we're told from leadership is to stay positive. How can...

    Advice to Management

    -Reduce quotas. Don't wait until next quarter to re-evaluate them, reduce them now -Be transparent, if you are going to continue to move forward with this aggressive quota strategy in future quarters, tell us so we can make the appropriate career plans and not keep us guessing
