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

    Pros

    Indeed is a great place to work. Pay is great, people are awesome and we get free breakfast and lunch on Monday's. The product is the market leader which is definitely favourable being a Salesperson. Office location is also fantastic.

    Cons

    -Less than zero transparency with quotas
    -Unlimited PTO is a bit of a joke, Directors often will tell you that you can't take the time off you request, even when you are pacing above target
    -Metrics heavy, often without logic.

    Advice to Management

    -The metrics set out are a complete joke. They aren't reasonable given book size and everyone just fakes their metrics to keep management happy.

    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!
