    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 the proper resources to be successful. Being told to stay positive can only work for so long when people have bills to pay, families to take care of, and lifestyles to maintain that were maintainable prior to all of these negative changes. Management is told to tell us to stay positive i understand the directors are just as stressed and overwhelmed as we are but, when the head of Canadian Sales, tells us to stay positive, and work harder, with no resources behind anything and no promise for a better tomorrow it makes it seem impossible and like we have no other option but to leave and use our skills elsewhere. MAYBE 5% of reps will hit moving forwards both in growth and acquisition, we are not given the proper leads, nor resources to be able to generate the required revenue per rep. And are still expected to stay positive and work hard to attempt to finish and end a race...that is un finish-able and un win-able . Some of the BEST reps at indeed have left the company 10+ within the last 30 days. But lets stay positive right? Lets keep pushing to hit our quotas that will not be reached right? unlimited PTO? yea right you wont ever be pacing to do so. I feel discouraged every single day coming into work.

    Advice to Management

    be transparent.

    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

    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

    Snacks, work life balance, labtop

    Cons

    I have worked at indeed for a year and a half. Things were amazing when I first started. I saw a bright future for myself here at indeed to expand on my current skills and to learn new sales, and business skills. But then…things took a turn at the end of 2018, headed into 2019…. Reps at indeed will no longer hit green BREAKING NEWS! I have create da lifestyle around the pay structure I was used to. That lifestyle is now gone. I find it hard to manage my lifestyle, take care of my family, and take PTO. I had planned on building my career here at indeed and now I feel as if I am “sticking it out”I feel discouraged, and ashamed coming into work everyday. The morale in the office is beyond down, and it is somehow the reps fault? How does upper management except reps to hit targets that do not even mathematically even make sense to hit due to the current spenders, and new spenders coming in. We are being set up for failure. They are better off letting people go, or being transparent in what is going on within the organization so that we CAN be positive and have a better hope for tomorrow.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and give us achievable goals.
