Workplace had nice benefits at this particular campus, but the management was difficult and pay was lacking for contractors. Full-time and in different areas would likely be a better way to work at Indeed.
I happened upon this job by pure accident. When I found it, I was immediately surprised. Very easy to get started, contacting PNH and building relationships with people. Very rewarding! The only gripe I have is about compensation. It was difficult to understand the compensation structure but I still recommend this job to anyone!!!
Client Onboarding Strategist (Current Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – November 23, 2018
They grew too fast. Daily frustration with moving targets and no strategy on how to reach them. 4-5 departments contacting the same leads with the exact same sales pitches. I swear they are A/B testing the teams against each other. Very stressful. Constant gossip. Any experienced sales manager left and they were open about why they left so disappointed. It's not sales. Client Onboarding Strategist is a retention role at best. We sell pay per click advertising. There's no time to actually help the small businesses because metrics are all that matter. This is voiced openly by the department. In order to get bonuses themselves, management simply said to 'just roll with it'. This job consists of finding the loopholes and keeping them quiet.
The US market isn't the top priority of this Japanese company. I might recommend the headquarters doing anything but sales. Or do Acquisition Sales which is the actual sales department.
The future is 50/50 in my opinion. They will stop forcing irrelevant metrics to be the only priority or they will turn into the typical call center with lower and lower standards.
An excellent benefits package with all the bells and whistles. Colorful and fun office parties. Well equipped facilities. But I genuinely feel bad about the treatment of the small businesses and how savagely we prey on them. Indeed wants its employee's next job to be with Indeed, too. Unfortunately most of us want that but are lining up plan B as the truth is exposed. The new hires dissapear quick.
Team Lead (Current Employee) – Stamford, CT – November 15, 2018
Indeed is a phenomenal atmosphere to build your sales skills as an account executive and beyond. A dynamic startup environment still exists within a company that has been #1 in it's industry for six years and counting. Ask questions, take advantage of the extensive trainings offered and learn everything about the products so you can speak in the simplest terms to the clients, and have fun too.
National Account Manager (Current Employee) – San Francisco Bay Area, CA – November 7, 2018
Indeed is a great company with a great mission. It helps candidates find jobs at great companies and helps employers find great candidates. However, over the last year or so, Indeed is branching out into other areas (employer branding) and is putting a lot of pressure on its sales organization to push these products into the marketplace. However, Indeed is not well versed in this area and quite frankly, these products need to improve in many ways before increased adoption can take place. It is creating a disconnect between product and sales that is taking away from the core mission of the company and the true culture at Indeed.
Great mission, good people, good benefits, nice offices, unlimited PTO, option to work from home...
Salaries are not competitive with other sales organizations.
International Business Operations Associate (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – November 5, 2018
I recently joined Indeed and I am very happy. For the first time in my career I feel that I am at the right place and all the hard work has paid off. I work with a very friendly and collaborative team. My manager is very helpful and eager to guide me. The perks are amazing and I get to save money that way. The position makes it available for me to learn much more, increase my current skills and obtain new ones. There is possibility for promotion. Moving from another state and from a small business company, the transition was made smooth by the Indeed and my team. I am definitely thankful for this opportunity. It has improved not only my career life but also my personal life. I was at a point where I felt depressed at my last employment and Indeed turned that around. Thank you!
Benefits, catered lunch once a week, daily breakfast, collaborative team, fun activities, Lyft credits, unlimited PTO.
Sr. Account Executive (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 25, 2018
The company is pretty much what you're reading. It's not a very "colorful" place. Managers hire who they hire and management plays it's favorites. But that's every company right? It's pretty bad here though. Definitely a very slender window for any sort of advancement. Make your money as a rep and keep your ear to the ground about advancement internally and externally. As a rep, however, the product works so it's not necessarily a difficult sale. Can sometimes be a longer sales cycle than expected. Was also a much bigger fan of receiving commission every month vs the salary + bonus every quarter situation. Young environment, sometimes referred to as "college 2.0."
Easy ish sale, working product, free food, fitness classes, gym, entire location, unlimited PTO, good compensation, excellent benefits

If you believe this has not happened in the area you’ve worked, we would appreciate the feedback so we can look into it. Please contact us on email@example.com
I love working for Indeed. The culture, the benefits, the management and perks are all fantastic. Unfortunately the pay for my role is not even close to enough for the workload and for the cost of living in the area. I'll either need to transfer to a department that I don't love, or to a different company so that I can afford to live here. The SLT team is consistently praising our efforts but doesn't show their appreciation in any way other than free happy hours. I don't think they understand how much they put on the CS team.
Thanks for leaving us some great feedback about working at Indeed.
We know that the CS team are a vital part of our business when it comes to delivering a best in class service to our clients, partners, and teammates worldwide. We do appreciate you!

It was difficult working at indeed
Senior Linux Administrator (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – September 30, 2018
It was difficult for me to work at indeed with all of the egos that were there at my time. That is why I left indeed. The environment was hostile for me, but not bad enough to report to HR.
Thanks so much for leaving us a review about your time working in our Austin office. We’re sorry to hear you did not feel like you could talk to HR about how you were feeling. HR are there to support and listen to our employees, not matter how big or small the issue is. If you would like to talk to us further please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Great tech culture and great perks for employees. Very fast paced
Senior Account Executive (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 6, 2018
Indeed was a fantastic place to work. I never once woke up dreading going in. I do think that employee's day to day experience depending heavily on their direct report and attitude. Overtime is not allowed so the schedule was very routine. The sales targets were fair.
The product basically sells itself and the training is amazing.
Free breakfast every day, great snacks, incredible pay, lunch once a week, happy hour
The communication between upper management and Account Executives could be better, promotions beyond Senior Account Executive are competitive
