Current Employee - Employee says"I have been working at BoomTown (South Carolina) full-time Cons: Managers are terrible communicators and completely inconsistent. Very passive aggressive."
Former Employee - Client Care Coordinator says"I worked at BoomTown (South Carolina) part-time for less than a year Cons: As soon as you walk in you are over-powered by "The Google of Charleston" atmosphere so many millenials crave in new companies. However, it has a poor focus for being a real estate service company and only care about their bottom line when it comes to budgeting time so it led to high turnover rates and no sense of real belonging. Also, good luck getting a promotion without some kind of experience unless you're a favorite! Also, was fired from working there 6+ months with a phone call one morning after getting into a discussion with a manager that I felt was totally valid but the blamed it on their ever increase quotas to keep the department afloat."

Drama keeps this company from reaching its potential."
