I have been working at Jive Software full-time (more than an year)Pros
Jive is the kind of company I always dreamed of working for as a kid. My brainiac coder younger brother and I used to sit around and dream up awesome ideas for software and websites. I had the ideas and he the ability to code it... I always wanted to be a developer myself but never had the math skills to make it happen. I was always good with people and when I graduated ended up in an IT recruiting job for a staffing company and spent many years in the staffing world trying to find an opportunity to work for a company that makes awesome software and has a great culture like Jive.
Fast forward.. My brother and I both moved to Portland in 2009 and he took a support job with Jive when we were still around 150 employees. After spending a few years hanging out with him and a bunch of awesome Jivers my singular goal became to work for this awesome company and I'm happy to announce I did it and have been here for 1.5 years now. I contracted for 6 months and then they converted me to permanent about a year ago.
Finding talent for Jive has been one of the most rewarding jobs I've ever had because there is no smoke and mirrors here.. this place really is as good as it seems. It's not just because we have awesome offices and beer on tap.. its truly the individuals I get to work with and spend my time with each and every day that make me so happy. It's little things like talking to people in elevators, wishing everyone you come in contact with in the bike room a good ride and all the time we spend just geeking out about stuff.
Jive is all about people.. our technology enables people to succeed in what they do and as an employee you really feel supported and loved at this place. Having seen Jive really grow up to what it is today and becoming apart of it myself I can say very little has changed since the early start up days in the ways that really matter to me. Jive still has some of the greatest people you could ever hope to work with and that's what keeps me insanely motivated and looking forward to many more years ahead.Cons
There's not really any cons that I think are worth mentioning. I think it depends on what you consider to be a con.. sometimes we are really vocal, direct and transparent but for me that is a good thing. Sometimes you have to work really hard to meet expectations? Again not a con just part of how it goes in a market like ours.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
