Coworkers were great...management left a lot to be desired.
Senior Project Manager, Marketing (Former Employee) – Santa Monica, CA – January 23, 2019
At first I loved Cornerstone, but the management left a lot to be desired. People were put into management positions based on their relationship with the CEO, not their skill level. And if you asked too many questions or put forth any of your own ideas, you were singled-out as a problem employee. If you didn't do what you were told when you were told to do it, you're out!
Product Specialist (Former Employee) – Santa Monica, CA – January 22, 2019
I enjoyed working for Cornerstone for the first half of my career. The culture was fun and people were encouraged to do their best. The culture began to changed and people began to leave. Management became cut throat. Decisions changed from the top without any knowledge of the day to day work. If you didn't like the decisions that the executive team made, you have no choice.
FACILITIES MANAGER (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 27, 2018
Too many cooks in the kitchen therefore teams are constantly relocating, because of poor space planning and future growth planning. Managers lack the skills to manage the employees. There is high turnover because of the poor management. Because of the lower pay compared to the other tech companies people tend to leave with in the first or second year.
Free lunches on Fridays, Free snacks and drink, several yearly company wide events
Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Santa Monica, CA – January 25, 2018
Spaces at Cornerstones are beautifully decorated; perfect for impressing clients and guests alike. Options to work and expand growth from home made life a breeze due to removal of LA traffic congestion.
Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Santa Monica, CA – August 29, 2017
Overly competitive environment. Leadership is either inept or out of touch or both. Co-workers are all over the map in terms of output quality. Expect to self-manage, and manage your fellow employees, and manage your manager, and work lots of hours.
Services Consultant (Current Employee) – Remote – August 10, 2017
Exciting place to work Focused on servicing the client with qualified employees however in that regards the support to ensure tat all their employees are successful are left to online learning and requirement so pass online test based on application that you cant use until you pass certification.
work hours, lack of training for all learning types
Sr. Quality Assurance Engineer (Former Employee) – Santa Monica, CA – June 23, 2017
I caught this company setting up a QA Manager to fail. They knowingly sent information to my boss, that was different than what we other workers saw, so that my boss would enter incorrect information and therefore they could get him out of their contract.
SEO Manager - International Sites (Former Employee) – Santa Monica, CA – May 17, 2017
Great work environment. Reasonable management. Ping pong was always available. Free lunch on Fridays was a plus. Expectations were straight forward. Overall a good place to learn more about the HR software industry
Worked remotely in a new division trying to capture a new market with a product that was previously sold to much larger corporations. Territory opportunities were not proportionate to quota expectation. Under 10% of reps hit quota. Since I left they restructured and right sized the territories making quota attainment more realistic.
Great blend of Silicon Beach and corporate culture
Consulting Operations Associate (Former Employee) – Santa Monica, CA – March 15, 2017
This place had an amazing balance of organized professional environment with plenty of tech industry flair. When I was there CSOD was undergoing a few minor growing pains, however I believe they are doing much better and are much more stable now. Overall I did enjoy working here as the culture balance agreed with me well.
Tech Industry culture, free snacks, free Friday Lunches
