      Great Culture, Horrible Pay. Good for College Kids

      Pros

      This job is amazing for college students. Flexible schedule, fun culture, perks, incentives, etc. People are nice and company parties were fun. I loved the birthday celebrations and monthly company meetings where they always had food. Again, perfect for starving college students, and the company seems to know that.

      Cons

      This job is not good for anyone seriously looking to work in SEO for their career. Their approach to marketing is conveyor-belt-style, meaning they have you doing one specific task (i.e. keyword research) and that's all you do, day in and day out. You never learn more about other SEO skills or tools. Because of that, this company is definitely not the place to be if you eventually want to find a better job in SEO and leave with a tool belt of skills and experience. I managed to get another job doing the full range of SEO deliverables including technical, content, onsite opts, competitor analysis, etc., but it's a miracle I was able to because I came out of Boostability with so few marketable skills. Overall, this can be a great college job or introduction to the world of SEO, but it's not the full experience. Aside from that, the pay is terrible. They keep people at hourly so as to not provide benefits as much as possible. Raises are tiny and only come if you complete way more than you're expected to. And this causes a huge problem with quality of work because everyone is just trying to get as much done as possible to earn perks.

      Great Culture, Awful Pay

      Pros

      Boostability does a lot to make people feel included and has a lot of activities — if you go into the office.

      Cons

      The pay for fulfillment is awful. We literally create the deliverable product for the client, but make the least pay at the company. Boostability is a tech company that claims not to be so that they don't have to pay us tech company prices. The only other thing it could be is a marketing firm, which would also pay better than they do. Benefits package sounds good on the surface, but the cheaper health plan still has a $1.5k deductible for a single person. If you have health problems, that isn't going to cut it at our pay rate.

      Provides catered food a few days at office.

      Cons

      Very low pay for eg:- $13/hr which is not at par with any other tech companies in the silicon slope. Fulltime benefits are even worse. Better benefits and pay are available at Walmart or other places where no skills needed.

      Amazing People and Culture

      Pros

      I loved my time at Boostability. I had amazing managers and felt like I was able to learn SEO at a comfortable pace. If you are looking for experience and to grow your resume, Boostability is a great place to do so. The culture was a culture of growth, transparency, positivity, and empowerment. Managers seem to really care about the individuals going up as high as the CEO. Highly recommend working here if you are entry level and ready to learn about SEO, which can lead to a pretty lucrative career.

      Cons

      Pay was not as competitive as it should've been, especially compared to the cost of living in Utah. There’s not much incentive to stay long term because if it.

      Overall, Boostability Does Not Walk The Talk

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Boostability has decent benefits, and a lot of the positions have flexible work hours, which can be nice for work/life balance. They also make an honest effort to make sure that all the members of each team have the opportunity to spend time together and get to know each other. If you value interpersonal relationships with your coworkers above anything else, Boostability might be a good fit for you. Management does seem to genuinely believe in the importance of the services they provide to their customers as well.

      Cons

      The expectations are high, but the pay, raises, and bonuses are all quite low (there are full-time employees who do not meet the minimum income requirements to rent a one-bedroom apartment in the area). The pay (at least for some positions) is far below the national average for the type of work. Additionally, Boostability does not offer raises that keep up with inflation. There are biannual performance reviews, and the rubric has the equivalent of an A++, yet management does not reward their employees for meeting these near impossible standards. For some perspective: I have received higher raises from fast food jobs than I got at Boostability (after the same length of employment and after similarly positive performance reviews). Essentially, Boostability does not walk the talk. If management did not spend so much time bragging about how much they donate to charity, how healthy their company culture is, and how good their benefits are, I would not have an issue with how they handle employee wages.
