    I have been working at Indeed full-time (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 they expect us to stay positive and care when a large percentage of people aren't even going to get a bonus which is the majority of our compensation?

    This job was always boring, but we put up with it because of the pay. Now the pay is gone, this is a terrible place to work.

    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

    I have been working at Indeed full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Catered Lunches and Breakfasts.
    Fully stocked fridge with snacks and pop.
    Good sales training - Insights Colour Training, Dale Carnegie

    Cons

    If you're interviewing with Indeed ask how many of the account reps actually will/did make a quarterly bonus for Q1 2019 -

    They increased the target so high again this quarter that 75%+ of the sales reps are NOT going to hit their quarterly bonus.

    So basically, just your base pay and free snacks to live on!

    The job is a bit basic.

    Advice to Management

    Would it be ridiculous to say that Indeed set us up for failure if a large part of the sales org isn't going to get paid?

    Pros

    Just like everyone:
    - free ptos
    - snacks and food
    - decent salary
    - good perks overall

    BUT it's all an illusion to hire robots as you will become.

    Cons

    As robots, you are treated with no human feelings. You are here to follow orders. If you want to join an army and fight with selling useless clicks to your clients face... WECOME IN INDEED!
    My manager is the worst ever but I think that they all are because they are all feeling great about the way it goes. Even if you are one of the best performers as I am, you are still treated like a piece of metal, the management takes everything they can from you and to cover themselves... and once you can't breath anymore, they push you off limits... This is a living nightmare. Never believe what they say and run away as far as you can.

    Advice to Management

    QUIT!
