Manager (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – July 20, 2017
Social Solutions cares about it's employees. There are regular happy hours and fun events for employees to take a break from their day to day.
My manager is invested in my development. We have regular check-ins to follow up on my personal and development goals.
The best part of working at Social Solutions is the people. I can honestly say that I enjoy coming to work every day.
Working with some folks who are remote and some who are in the other office can be tough because I prefer face to face contact. We have tools (chat/video/phone) to make this easier, but it's not as easy to build strong working relationships.
Regular events, Free benefits for the employee (spouse/dependents are not free), HSA match, 401k match, ping pong, Volunteer Days (8 hrs per quarter to volunteer)
Office is North (near the domain), can be tough for commuting from South Austin
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Austin – July 10, 2017
Company calls itself 'data-driven' but is driven with false/erroneous data.
The numbers used to build the sales territory, or the addressable market, are bogus. Leadership took the total operating budget of the Non-Profits within territory and assumed that it was all 'addressable'. Non-Profits do not work that way, they tend to allocate 1%- 4% of their operating budget for IT. Therefore the actual addressable market is 1-4% of the number that they give you.
