    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Wowcher full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun parties Great commission scheme Some great people within company as a whole

    Cons

    No personal or professional development available General toxic environment, some teams being very immature and generally sexist. Lack of organisation as a company as a whole. Lack of appreciation and support for staff and general pressure on sales people to solve every problem. Hardly a sales role by the end, basically glorified compliance and admin due to the amount of added work load onto sales team with new procedures. Lack of understanding from management about time management with all new processes and expectations but no more time to do it in. ALOT OF STRESS AND PRESSURE- passive aggressive emails late at night or early in the morning from management if things weren't going well (I'd prefer a strategic meeting to make a plan rather than a virtual scolding)
