    I have been working at Accela, Inc.


    Accela is pretty good place to work. People are friendly. The company is growing faster than it can keep pace with. And there are a fair amount of perks, like free lunches a couple days a week, flexible work culture, etc... Furthermore, I would say there is a great work life balance at this company. The civic tech space is interesting and Accela has a few very cutting edge products that are exciting. Lastly, management is very accessible. Even though there are 400 people at the company, I think it's very easy to have a conversation with senior leadership and senior leadership has a fairly open mind when listening to employees. This is a company where there is a huge opportunity to make an impact.


    -The company is turning into a bigger company, whereas the playbook for getting things done in the company is still geared towards a smaller organization. There are growing pains involved with this as the company turns into a bigger organization.
    -Titles are a little deflated in the company, managers who should be senior managers, senior managers who should be directors, and directors who should be vps, etc...
    -Compensation is not always commensurate with experience. There are some people in the company who get paid above market rate and some people who get paid below. The company doesn't have benchmarks for salaries. It just depends on what team you join and who the manager is. So you could have two people with the very similar experience join two separate teams and making vastly different salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -The little perks make a big difference in terms of employee happiness. Keep those things up.
    -Maintain an open mind. That spirit of openness is a very positive attribute for the company.

    Positive Outlook

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Accela, Inc..

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume and was contacted by Accela recruiter, who scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager. Did the phone interview and that went well. Did not hear anything after after a few days, so I emailed the recruiter to solicit feedback. Never got a reply from the recruiter or the hiring manager. How rude!
