Bazaarvoice – Why Work For Us?

Bazaarvoice is based on a simple truth; when people talk to each other, people buy stuff they are happy about because they trust the opinions of others. We see a day when all voices are connected and, together, help the marketplace function better. That’s what our name means: the “voice of the marketplace.” We’ve built a network that connects businesses together to amplify the authentic voices of people wherever they shop – online, in-store and mobile.

 

Each month, more than 500 million people view and share authentic opinions, questions and experiences about 20 million products in the Bazaarvoice network. Our technology platform channels these voices into the places that influence purchases.

 

Our network helps businesses gain access to a wider audience of shoppers and trusted consumer content to improve sales and marketing. Insights from our network data  help marketers and advertisers provide more engaging experiences, drive product innovation and performance, make better merchandising decisions and build brand advocates and loyalty.

We believe in

Generosity is one of our core values, and is at the heart of what we do.

  • From the simply rewarding — giving kids confidence with new backpacks and school supplies.
  • To international impact — transforming lives in the UK and Africa with money raised in London during National Red Nose Day.
  • To our commitment to the future — helping kids in need become first-generation college graduates. And, through the Bazaarvoice Foundation, preparing students to become tomorrow's entrepreneurs.

And that’s just a start.

Whether it’s in Austin, New York, London, Amsterdam, Munich, Paris, Sydney, or Stockholm, we’re always looking to do more for the places we call home.

The perks of being with the best

    Current Employee - Implementation Project Manager

    I have been working at Bazaarvoice full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people/team, interesting projects, good work/life balance, fun team outings, excellent on pacing and training, very well-documented processes and procedures

    I think this company is on a great path, but in its "awkward teenage" years. There are some growing pains, but will be an amazing company to work for in a year or two.

    Cons

    This company is in transition from startup to mid-size company. It's awkward as there is this vibe of "business meets recess" for better and for worse. People complain about admin tasks that most project managers in other companies have to do. It can be loud in the office and distracting with people talking through cubes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make yourselves more accessible to all employees; need clearer communication of long-term vision for transition (the path is s good one, just do a better job of helping everyone see it in a believeable way) and help everyone see the stable path ahead
