Account Manager (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – May 12, 2018
Payscape is a straight commission career where you have to really work hard to make a buck. Management is non-existent but the home office will reject your deals if they do not like the business you are signing up or your paperwork is incomplete. Training was fair at best. Only the top people make money in this company similar to MLM. Company would be better at retaining people if they has a base salary or at least a draw since this industry is dog-eat-dog.
You are your own boss so work / lif balance is great
Too competitive of an industry, customers will leave you once a better rate comes thru their door.
Great company but this field is dying due to proprietary software
Business Development Manger (Current Employee) – Charleston, SC – June 12, 2017
Great company but this field is dying due to proprietary software. As you go through your day to day duties of lead generation etc. You will find that you will compete with a lot of software that is already integrated and is proprietary.
If you are inclined to be a sales producer Payscape is going to be challenging and rewarding. The compensation is very good and the payout is weekly, including bonuses. The residuals are paid monthly for the previous month. The management team is very good at motivation and recognition. I learned that they like to reward sales reps who get good results. Although it is a very competitive industry an culture I found the workplace to be relatively laid back in meetings and in just hanging out together. The biggest challenge that I encountered was the fact that our office did not have any in office sales support staff. That means that the reps have to sell and do maintenance for the accounts, which can be a little difficult to get used to initially. There are many different companies involved with some of the products and getting all of the working parts together on the "same sheet of music", so to speak, can be tiring. Overall, if someone wants to roll up their sleeves and work for a living and be rewarded, I think Payscape is the way to go!
No weekend work unless you want to do some extra work to get ahead
Different parts and different companies can be difficult to make work for you
Great place to work. Competitive environment that promotes growth.
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – December 6, 2016
I love working at Payscape. The competitive nature challenges me to grow as a professional and management provides me the support I need to facilitate that growth. I truly enjoy waking up and coming to work at Payscape every morning.
Great corporate culture, growth opportunities and support
Endless Opportunity, just make sure you take advantage of it!
Team Lead (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – December 5, 2016
Working at Payscape means your day will never be boring. From the technology, to the business, to the culture, things are ever changing and evolving. It's been an incredible place for me to learn and grow professionally, without crippling fear of failure. At Payscape you are encouraged to try a new idea, and if it doesn't work out the first time, try again or tweak it a little bit and then see what happens. Tons of room for upward mobility, no matter which area of the business you are in. The constant change can be difficult to navigate and you may find yourself wearing several hats while holding one role, but if you can tough it out, as they love promoting from within.
Great culture, endless opportunity, growing like crazy
Could stand to improve communication and transparency
Employee Experience Admin (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 17, 2016
For the first time in my professional career I am surrounded by hard-working, motivated, and intelligent people daily. Everyone helps each other to reach their goals and beyond. I am constantly learning more and more each and every day, and there is so much room for growth. Everyone in upper management is super understanding to employees when it comes to life/unexpected events. There is unlimited opportunity to prosper with this company! Such an awesome group of people to work with/for!
Software Developer (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 15, 2016
I've worked at a fair bit of startups in my day. This is much better. Payscape has been around for about 12years in the payments space, and it's only growing. I can't speak for the sales team, as those people either do well, or they aren't meant for a sales job. I can only speak for the technology team. They're top-notch. This is a company that really values the software development team, and they're doing great things.
Management knows enough to know that they didn't understand how to build a proper software company, so they brought in experienced leadership. The development team has a lot of work to do in the next year as they execute on some great new products.
The culture at Payscape is top-notch. This is something you rarely see outside of Silicon Valley. Parties for holidays....even the strange ones. Happy hour every 3-ish weeks. I'd say with certainty that there isn't a day that goes by where 2 people from Payscape don't get together after work in some way. We work hard but play hard too.
Culture, Rewarding work, modern technologies, management
When I first came to Payscape I was a bit nervous about the compensation, but after seeing it in action I do not have any regrets. Just like any sales position, you have to work... The only difference with this sales position is that it keeps on giving. The residuals continue to add up and provide you with solid pay. The potential for growth is endless. The managers want you to succeed, they are not even allowed to take deals for themselves. There are always great incentives, like parties, plane tickets and an awesome beach trip. There is nothing like the culture here at Payscape, and I could not be happier to be apart of this awesome company!
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 7, 2016
I'm excited to come into work every day! I've learned more about payments technology than ever before. Which puts me in a great space long term. The corporate culture here is amazing. It is a fast paced fun environment where we treat each other like family.
Marketing Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 4, 2016
Joining the Payscape family has proven to be the best move in my career thus far. I work on the operations side of things, not sales, but have in-depth perspective on how both work.
Operations: The leaders Payscape has picked to guide their operations teams are individuals who truly empower you. They all provide the tools needed for you to excel in your career and give you the opportunities to succeed both professionally and personally. Promotions and raises are not handed out, they come when you've earned them. Executives and "suits" are transparent and approachable every-day people. You'll get to know them very well, including their families. HR and reporting bosses are kind and empathetic to personal emergencies. Flexibility for work/life balance is readily available to those who don't abuse it.
Sales: For both outside and inside sales, it is what you make it. Outside sales can be especially hard and candidly speaking that's where we see the most turnover. If you're not out there giving it all you can, you won't be successful. All sales reps are given the tools, resources, and advanced training to prep them to make the most money possible. It's up to you to make it happen. How much effort you put into your sales position directly reflects your salary. Of course you have to slowly work your way up and find your groove. It doesn't happen over night. The sales structure here makes it easy to get paid once you find your stride.
Products: In addition to payment processing, Payscape has a suite of SaaS products that I can put my beliefs and morals behind. The technologymore... works and the mission to help SMBs streamline their business operations works. Another reason sales should always be lucrative at this company, our products and overall technology are highly sellable.
Culture: Payscape is the only company I've worked for where they actually practice the culture they preach. There are no hidden agendas, no "tricks" to get you in the door. Everything is transparent and it really is almost too good to be true (fortunately it's all just very good and very true). Sales reps have tons of opportunities to win big prizes like all-expenses-paid exotic trips, general plane tickets, electronics, etc. Monthly happy hours help new trainees and current employees mingle and build lasting relationships. Being able to bring your dog to work is a huge plus if you're a dog lover. The laid-back atmosphere of the HQ in Atlanta is also a nice breath of fresh air when comparing to typical corporate offices.
If you're thinking of applying at Payscape but are unsure, don't be. We're bursting at the seams with opportunity and growth. From here there's no where to go but up. The company has been successful for year, is successful now, and I foresee that being the case for years to come.less
Amazing culture, excellent management and team leaders, transparent executives, family + fun atmosphere, a true word hard play hard environment
Sometimes overwhelming workloads but it is a growing company so that's expected, Company culture can be misunderstood and taken for granted
District Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – August 30, 2016
Payscape has built a solid foundation by being innovative and having local offices. Successful candidantes are self motivated and know how to work. Company is committed to training and supporting local account executives. Outside sales role serving small to midsize businesses
Diverse products and services. Fun, fast paced, and financially rewarding culture
Must be a self starter that wants to be outside the office doing sales activities.
when they say it's YOUR business that means you PAY all of your expenses and they reimburse you $0 and your suppose to enjoy this. in reality it's their business and you get paid very little to get and keep their business. After all your expenses are added up at the end of the month versus how much they pay you, you lose money and your suppose to be ok with this or your not a "team" player. it will take them up to a month to pay you on an account you close.
