Sales (Former Employee) – Massachusetts – December 7, 2017
High quotas, small deals! You are responsible for prospecting to close, few if any leads, marketing activity is limited, few pilot conversions and difficult renewal process due to lack of impact/value. Management team is 100% male, micro managers who scrutinize deals without much added value. Underlying technology is poor and community is not as advertised. Hard selling tactics, unethical and lacking customer focus.
Account Executive (Current Employee) – Framingham, MA – August 2, 2017
marketing teams previous regime had done a poor job of nurturing leads, instead, blasting emails and diminishing the value of a targeted approach. As a result, many companies have blocked emails making it nearly impossible to connect with prospects without tools such as zoom info, lead IQ, Toutapp, and Discovery Org.
kitchen is always stocked
lots of whispers about company direction and a very weak and disjointed company culture
Child party performer/ Sub. Teacher (Former Employee) – new york – May 10, 2017
every thing was always last minute from getting the scrpt and learning "set choreo" (that you are never taught, but then get in trouble for not knowing) to decorations and the party being set. It was stressful at times but it was decent money and the people are friendly enough.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Carson, CA – October 19, 2015
Working for Applause was extremely fun. In shipping and receiving there is a lot of moving and you meet new people everyday. We were a very small family orientated company. There was a lot of teamwork and togetherness. The hardest part of the job was the weather working in a warehouse.
Management was very family based and there was great job security
QUALITY ASSURANCE TESTER (Current Employee) – Worked from home – June 8, 2015
Working at Applause (formerly Utest) was a good chance to stay up to date with the Quality Assurance world. While all testers (over 100,000) are all remote from around the world, we can all come together to work on various projects for desktop apps to mobile applications and everything in between.
As everyone works remotely and you have no direct contact with the customer, you must rely upon your prior experience as a tester and the information that is presented to you in the overview of the project.
The hours devoted to testing are based upon whatever the tester has designated within their profile.
For a seasoned tester, not being able to have direct contact with the customer means that the tester needs to be diligent about asking questions for clarification.
Fun projects to work on and great people to work with from around the world
