Review Highlights

Pros
  • Unlimited" vacation policy (however you realize why when you quit (in 18 reviews)

  • I find that you have to fight a little for a better work/life balance but overall it's pretty good (in 8 reviews)


Cons
  • The culture and the work life balance remains very good (in 10 reviews)

  • It is a company in constant change so if you can't handle that, then this company probably isn't for you (in 6 reviews)

    I have been working at Bazaarvoice as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The great things in priority order are the people, the work, the technology, and being able to work remotely even as an intern.
    I learned so much, and the people on my team are really smart and patient.
    The on-boarding process was excellent. We were productive in the 1st of the week of the internship.
    The perks here are amazing: lots of free food, a couple sponsored intern events, and company-wide event/party called All-Hands.

    Cons

    The only thing that I feel I wanted more of was code reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Bazaarvoice part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They give you the opportunity to work from home. Great parties where you meet everybody. Relaxed and very fun company. They are the very best at what they do.

    Cons

    Sometimes the schedule can be a little tough. Week ends, very early in the morning and holidays. No benefits if you work part time from home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work you are doing.

    I worked at Bazaarvoice as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing people who inspire you to try your best for everything you set out to do. Always looking for better ways to improve code, customer experience, and data visualizations. Great open culture, small tight teams, and visibility into where Bazaarvoice is heading for the future. Lots of learning opportunities during lunch and learn sessions, and hackathons.

    Cons

    Bazaarvoice is growing like crazy so seating arrangements might be a little cramped.

    I have been working at Bazaarvoice full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    We have the right leadership team in place to significantly move the needle for the company. We are growing and becoming more global by the day while keeping authentic & unique in our culture. i.e. we have our own company band, our own BV film festival, our own BV art show, and the company takes Corporate Social Responsibility very seriously. Mix in incredible people, and it makes working at BV a lot of fun.

    Cons

    It's to be expected with a company at our stage in the lifecycle, but we have to accelerate our thinking around scalability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since Gene has taken the CEO job, I sincerely feel Mgmt is listening to employees and listening to customers. Let's keep headed forwarded!

    Pros

    Fast-paced, hard-working, smart colleagues. Great opportunities to gain leadership experience. Fun and motivating environment. Good company values and a focus on putting the customer at the center of our business.

    Cons

    Up until a few months ago I would have said cross-department collaboration, but I believe there is a renewed sense of importance around collaborating across the org.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue focusing on collaboration and on delighting our customers

    I have been working at Bazaarvoice as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    great co-workers, very intelligent people, and fun projects. the last 6 months have been really exciting.

    Cons

    some of the original employees struggle with change. in my experience there is always a transition when you go public, and and a evolution to the business. helping people through that and communication would help keep the best people .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help employees with the change management, with all the positive changes there still seems to be a fear factor with some employees.
