    Traction on Demand Response

    February 10, 2021

    Thank you for taking the time to post your review, specifically the recognition of our dedication to and efforts invested in having a positive impact on the world through our values and our actions as a Certified B Corporation. Despite some of the inaccuracies expressed in your review, we do appreciate that you shared some positive aspects of your experience. With respect to the negative commentary you've shared, the challenge is that while we always welcome and encourage feedback from those who are transparent and forthcoming, we are less inclined and able to do so from those hidden behind a veil of anonymity. Given the context of your feedback, I feel it's important to share that I am one of Traction on Demand's leaders, who is a bi-racial cisgender woman. All opinions aside, we are troubled by your misrepresentation of our CEO. By 'mysogenism' we presume you mean that you feel he demonstrates a hatred of, aversion to, or prejudice against women, as misogyny is defined. This is a very serious allegation and one that you may wish to reconsider as you reflect on all that we do at Traction on Demand to support our employees and our communities through our unwavering dedication to, and continued investment in our Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion efforts and initiatives. Not to mention the causes that we support, the programs we offer, the communities that we are proud to celebrate, and the work that we do as Tractionites and through Traction For Good - all of which we invite you to learn more about on our website. We are sorry that you left feeling this way and do hope that you're able to recall some positive and meaningful memories during your time as a Tractionite. However, as always and no matter what, we welcome a conversation with you at any time. Should you wish to discuss any aspect of your experience with us, please feel free to reach out to me, Tanya Jarrett, Chief People Officer at Traction on Demand, at any time. We wish you all the very best in your future endeavors.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, lots of opportunity for career growth and personal learning. Despite the now virtual office, they've done a great job at maintaining workplace culture and team collaboration.

    Cons

    Many of the best perks were office-based (free lunch, events etc). Really, I just miss the free lunch.

    Pros

    Decent Pay but not worth the risk of salesforce specialization Free beers (Stopped because of Covid) Lots of time for training Great place for a pit-stop in your career path ~2years.

    Cons

    Lack of management diversity Either in or not Marketed as a family but not actually a family Salesforce Ecosystem it will fail in the future and only the basic/intermediate skills are somewhat transferable don't put your eggs in one basket People don't stay in the company for long because of stagnation and impossible to climb

    I have been working at Traction on Demand full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You'll be surrounded by accountable, caring and smart people. You'll learn and grow more at Traction in your first year than you'll learn in a few years at other companies. Business and brand are booming. Over the years, it seems like we achieve everything we put in front ourselves and we continue to do so! Sure there are some mistakes and learnings, but we as transparent as we can be and we always pivot fast.

    Cons

    It's intense and sometimes a little all consuming. There are consistent struggles with pains coming from rapid growth. At times it feels like we are growing up too quickly and fixing things as we sprint to the next level, the next challenge. It rarely feels stable. The "Kool-aid" is a little strong sometimes, but its tough to argue with success and what got us here.
