Positve and uplifting enviorment
Account Executive (Current Employee), Tempe, AZAugust 20, 2014
Pros: great commission structure
Cons: if you don't hit goal the average pay is not the best
7 a.m- 4 p.m
I learned how to research and prospect.
The management is amazing. Each manager has a huge Personality and an even bigger heart. they do care if you do Succeed and will do what they need to do to ensure you do so.
The hardest part of the job is getting discouraged. It is a sales job. Not everyone is going to believe in the product. you will hear a lot of no's before you get one yes. Have to have a positive attitude.
the most enjoying part is the environment. There is something always interesting going on in the office. I've definitely met some pretty incredible people while working here.

A Place to Build Your Skills and Resume
ACC (Former Employee), Bellevue, WAJuly 19, 2014
Pros: good coworkers, occasional free lunches/parties
Cons: low pay, below average benefits, tedious work
This is a good place to learn some solid basic skills in Photoshop, and to work on your visual aesthetic, eye for design, communication, and problem-solving skills. The people you work with are generally really nice, but the work does become tedious after a while, and your skills will top out somewhere below where the rest of the industry will expect you to be -- you need to push yourself to make up that difference (assuming you want a career in the field). Compensation is low, and benefits are present, but not great. A good place to start, but not somewhere you want to stay for too long.

Good Entry Level Sales Position
Account Executive (Former Employee), Bellevue WAJune 25, 2014
Pros: great work life balance, decent benefits and the salary was nice + commission
Cons: a tough product to sell sometimes, compliance with insurance, need to hit quota to get paid commission
- Daily cold calling medium to small business selling banner advertising subscriptions across the united States.
- I learned exceptional phone skills and closing technique
- My managers were extremely helpful and motivational
- Co workers and I all had a good time, it was a light playful experience as long as you made sales and worked hard.
- I made lots of long time friends
- Making big sales and reaping the rewards that come with it

the worst.
Acct mgr (Former Employee), Bellevue, WAJune 16, 2014
Cons: read above
Anyone who is manager or a lead, has been solely promoted because they've been here long enough or sucked up. The people who are in these positions have ZERO people management skills, and most of the time don't know what they're doing (successful way to build a company)
- the pay is a JOKE. any other real company pays at least $10,000 or more for the same position
- again the team leads or managers like to re-assign work to other people because they themselves do not want to deal with clients
- there is absolutely zero professional growth here, you will not learn much after a month or so
- The benefits are a joke, you're better off not having insurance because it's basically catastrophic insurance
-The turnover is so horrible, every month there's a contest with an incentive if you refer people who get hired, pathetic. maybe invest that money into your people's salaries so you won't have this high of a turnover.
- The products are sold to people who don't know any better, it's a bad product and everyone knows it.

Advice to Senior Management – Stop promoting people just because they've been here long enough. The people who are managing have zero skills. maybe do some m

It is a grind
Account Executive (Former Employee), Bellevue, WAJune 5, 2014
If you enjoy sitting staring at a computer all day calling businesses who don't want to talk to you and being encouraged to lie in order to sell a product which does nothing for a company but steal their money than DataSphere is for you!

Horrible Turnover reflects a horrible place to work

It's a great place to learn sales skills, and get your foot in the door to make good money. In house paid training, and resources to help you when you need it.

Great Job
Senior Account Executive (Current Employee), Bellevue, WAMarch 6, 2014
This job was very refreshing.
It was nice to try something new.

Being able to work directly with news stations and small businesses gave me some new marketing and sales experience to add to my repertoire.

Not a good company.
Not Sales (Former Employee), BellevueFebruary 20, 2014
Pros: there are a lot of good people... depending on what department you're in. also it is pretty relaxed.
Cons: i don't have time to write them all.
Considering the number of reviews on here have gone up considerably in the last week, I'm guessing there was some sort of incentive program to go on indeed.com and post good reviews, probably HR's idea.

As for the company, outside of the sales department (which makes up the majority of the company and has quite the revolving door on it by the way), you're not going to find many people "living the dream" here. Management is questionable to say the least and compensation is insulting. The product is not very good and morale is low. The expectations are unfair and many lower level people end up paying for their superiors' mistakes. It's trickle down in all the wrong ways. Don't be fooled by the happy face sticker they slap on everything, this is a sad company. I am incredibly relieved that I got out when I did.

Senior Account Executive (Former Employee), Bellevue WAFebruary 15, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: health benefits
Datasphere taught me a lot about sales and how to work with one another. Very fun company to work for and they treated their employees with respect which I firmly believe that if you treat your employees well they will work harder in return.

This is a great place to start a career in advertising or digital media sales. They have a great training program and a product that businesses seem to really like. The environment is competitive and fun.

High churn rate atmosphere. Low morale.
Employee (not sales) (Current Employee), BellevueFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: free lunches occasionally. benefits are adequate. work/life balance is encouraged.
Cons: nobody really wants to work there. employees are under-appreciated.
Not much emphasis on employee well-being. Compensation is not competitive. Recognition for going above and beyond is minimal and insincere (or misdirected) so there's not much to help motivate. It's a machine, expect to feel like a cog. On the upside it is pretty relaxed, with good people in the lower ranks (a few in the upper). It's a good place to find direction, or to find what you do/don't want in your next job.
