    I worked at Avalara full-time (less than an year)


    Avalara is about to make it big. The company is growing rapidly and has experienced a high satisfaction rate from customers. Good culture, fun environment.


    Salaries are lower than most seattle tech companies (I am now hired by one of the top 10 software companies in the Seattle area), benefits are average but less than what you would expect for the size of the company. I was let go from Inside Sales, which my position is now in Inside sales with another tech company and I'm in the top 10% month after month. If you can get into Avalara other than Inside sales, then do it, otherwise pass. Lead distribution is very unfair, 1) they play favorites 2) they give leads out to the people who are already performing. If you happen to take vacation like I did, then you fall behind. If you fall behind, then you don't get the good leads, then you fall behind further, and you again get the crappy leads because you are behind in goals, and you end up getting into a situation where you can't dig yourself out. 3 ) you are treated like a commodity in IS. If I heard, one more time "maybe its not the right job for you", then I would have screamed. It was the right job, it just isn't a fair job. I liked the company, disliked IS management. Wish I could have stayed long enough to move to another department, but I am happy at my new job and especially that my new company actually distributes leads evenly. Funny how you can succeed when things are fair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a good company, you have a good product. Most companies have an Inside Sales Dept., but they are not run the way Avalara's is run. Change the management in IS, and change the way the people are treated in IS, and make it fair. There is tons of drama in that department.
