    Amazing internship experience!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsI truly enjoy coming to work everyday! Achievers has a positive, upbeat and super friendly environment that made me feel at home almost immediately. As an intern, I feel like I hit the jackpot. I am learning extremely useful skills and building my resume daily. (No coffee runs for this internship!) I have been challenged with projects, and even get to interact with higher level management (VP level). On Friday afternoons there is social drinking in the office which has allowed me to get to know co-workers from different departments. As if that wasn't enough- you also get free lunch everyday, which was a huge bonus in my book. I am gaining amazing experience at a growing company. Can't stop bragging about how great my internship is!

    ConsIf you don't like being social or meeting new people you would probably not do well in this environment. Also, things are always changing so adaptability is a must!

    I love this company

    Account Executive (Current Employee)

    Proscoming from larger corporations, it's awesome to work for a company that is small enough to evolve quickly but large enough to offer you internal support (~250 ee's). Also, people really do "get it" here. Everyone understands that if our clients don't succeed, then we don't succeed. And everyone has a vested interest in our success...so you see people go the extra mile all the time.

    Consif you are looking for the same thing every day....probably not the place for you.

    Great product, company culture and opportunity

    Account Executive (Current Employee)

    ProsThere is a great team culture at Achievers, which starts with every employee having an understanding of what each department is responsible for. It is also fostered by senior leadership being very transparent about the company's goals and our progress towards achieving them.

    ConsAs with any growing company, the only constant is change. So be prepared to roll with the changes - good or bad.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep communicating with everyone and asking for feedback. It will be important to try to keep the same team culture as the company grows.

    Start Up Culture with New Exec Team

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFast paced workplace, that is leading the space for employee engagement. Achievers is full of smart people who are willing to do what needs to be done to make an impact.

    ConsNew executive team seems disconnected to the vision of the company. A lot time is spent talking in circles instead of using existing employees as a knowledge center.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't loose touch with where the company was going before you got here, empower us don't micro manage us.

    Pretty exciting place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsGreat people. Super helpful environment. The product and senior leadership are both solid.

    ConsNo set career path, or it is always in flux. They are a growing company and a startup, so things will continue to be rapidly changing. The pay is near the top of the range for my position, but it isn't the very best.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Terrible service, marketing machine that spams customers

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsBased in San Francisco. Fun people.

    ConsNo personal growth enabled, the company is all vapor-ware. They create all these white-papers that are filled with non-valid proofs of employee engagement. Their webinar machine is the best, even when people call in to request to unsubscribe we don't remove them from our lists. This is another typical startup that won't be able to grow and is royally become a marketing house.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet real.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A Place to Enjoy Going to Work Everyday

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsI have been with the Company for 9 months now. When I started it seemed like it was too good to be true, I assumed that once I was settled then reality would set in and the energy and work environment would become just like any other work place. Nine months later this is not the case. I still enjoy going to work everyday, Sunday's are no longer miserable because Monday is just around the corner.

    The Leadership truly cares about their employees. They not only care about their employees today but also where their employees want to go and their career growth. Another pro is the balance of work/personal life. We work hard and things move extremely fast but we are always encouraged to maintain what is important to us in our personal lives.

    ConsLike the other reviews have said, there is the occasional craziness related to any start up. This has significantly improved within the past month or so due to some key leaders joining the company.

    Fast paced, customer and employee focused!

    Client Success Manager (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsAt Achievers, we understand that it is our employees that make us so successful. We are constantly growing, and adapting to that growth, but through that what has remained constant is the value that is placed on making employees feel like their hard work is valued and will be acknowledged. When our employees meet targets and deliver on customer expectations there is a significant amount of public praise that is placed on those employees. On top of performance based recognition incentives, we have a generous benefit package, which includes fitness subsidies, in office lunch, 4 paid volunteer days per year. On top of that, our leaders are not elitist, everyone is given an opportunity to reach out to leaders to give feedback, ask questions, and ask for help.

    ConsThere is never a slow moment here, so if you are someone who prefers to coast along, this gig is not for you. as we strive to become more scalable, our processes our constantly changing, so you can never fully adapt before it is going to change again.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to give opportunities to existing employees to grow, rather than always going outside to hire.

    Amazing team-oriented company that knows their biggest asset is their employees.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsYoung and vibrant company where people come to work excited, positive and ready to work. We celebrate our company's success as a team and everyone is encouraged to push the boundaries and grow into the career that they want. Transparency is a necessity and everyone in the company always knows what's going on and where we're going.

    ConsAny rapidly growing software company will say the same thing but we've recently had a large number of executives join recently who don't necessarily embrace the culture in the same way we have in the past. Not to say that they don't embrace it because they do but Achievers traditions are very special and important and sometimes higher executives don't necessarily see it as a priority.

    My first 3 months have been amazing!

    Account Executive (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsGreat Product - Software that is just a bit ahead of the market allows us to drive vision and value.
    Great Leaders - Experience leadership demonstrates how to manage and grow a business
    Great People - I'm very impressed that as a start-up everyone has a role and does their job amazingly.
    Great Visionary - Razor, is the inspiration both internally with employees as well as externally with clients.
    Amazing Culture - Everyone has everyone else's back. All pulling on the same side of the rope.
    Income opportunity is there too..

    Cons-Achievers is still a relatively young company so there are operational issues that are still being addressed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaintain the culture & continue to take care of the customers.
