    I have been working at BuyerZone.com full-time

    Pros

    The working environment and people here are both terrific. Everyone is friendly, helpful and working towards the same goal. Fun place to be, and management looks to reward and recognize talent.
    People are happy. You are given a good deal of responsibility, there is enough structure in place and management wants to invest in you and your talent. There are plenty of opportunities to learn.
    What BuyerZone is doing serves a specific need in the B2B space, and they're good at it, so they will continue to be around.

    Cons

    There isn't a lot of upward mobility. Promotions are few and far between, so if you're looking to climb ladders or for a fancy title, look elsewhere.
    Technology-wise, they could be more forward thinking.
    HR and IT are offsite, which can complicate things at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys are doing a pretty great job. The only true threat I see is how the parent company chooses to manage BZ in the future. It is somewhat unknown...

    Java Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Waltham, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Waltham, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at BuyerZone.com in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was just coming off a full-time, permanent job from a layoff to a full-time position at this company.
    The previous company was a competitor, and the information I had would have directly benefited them without violating any non-disclosure agreements, I felt I had a lot to offer. I made it on time, in my suit, with copies of my resumes in my had. I met 5 different people in 4 hours, and every single person asked me the same questions. I had to give the same speech 5 different times which was annoying. It was the same question about my previous jobs and projects and the different technologies I had used. At the end, I was escorted out, and I never heard from them again. The recruiter never heard from them ever. I found out from several dozen other recruiters is that how they work ... no feedback. Very unprofessional!!! So, here it is a few years later, and I refuse to meet with them again. I've also made sure I've told my family and friends to avoid them.
