    Great Life/Work Balance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsYou are not micro-managed, they allow you to "own" your position. The teams are smart, passionate, and collaborative. Management is finally where is needs to be, they have a long term vision. I am excited about the future of BV.

    ConsComp could be stronger, be sure you ask for what you need comp wise before you get in the door. It's hard to get a big increase once you are in. Benefits are great, unlimited pay vacation is great and benefits start right away, no waiting period.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsVery laid back, flexible hours, great offices, great people.

    ConsDefinitely got a little of the tech company CULTure feeling there. The product isn't super interesting but you can tell there are a lot of people "drinking the Koolaid" as you might hear in the tech industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on more innovative product developments.

    Pretty great company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsTechnically challenging atmosphere with great peers. R&D encourages innovation, hard work and cooperation. Encouragement and team outings at every corner makes it a nice place to put your all into something and feel good.

    ConsThe work area is cramped because of the growth and open seating. I think 1/2 the folks like it and 1/2 don't. Not tons of ego in this place, but where there is some, they are free to be controlling. Impossible to get someone hired here.

    Advice to Senior Management<Upper Mgmt> Pay attention to your people, not just the politics. Sit where they do, so you can see how cramped and uncomfortable and loud it is. And, finish what you start.

    Great people to work with

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsThe people and the culture are amazing. People are interested in other peoples projects and ideas are exchanged freely. There are lots of happy hours and and meetings that wrap up with social events.

    ConsThere can be some confusion in what's going on in various departments and who has the authority to do what. Things get done but it can be a bit chaotic and not always the most efficient.
