    I have been working at Bullhorn full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Everyone on the team loves to work with new technologies to help make our product better, be it developing it, testing it or delivering it. Each person's input are valued.

    Managers conduct weekly one-on-one meetings to know how you are doing, know about your career path and help you move towards it.

    To add to all of it, we just got a brand new lounge space,gym, music room and a huge kitchen. Not to forget free Wednesday lunches and Friday breakfasts, the annual company outing, volunteering opportunities and barbecues!

    Cons

    It gets busy when we are close to releasing major features out but managers let everyone have flexible hours so it makes up for extra work that you put in. We sometimes have deploys which are scheduled for 9 pm on Thursdays which may need you participation but you are informed well in advance about it.

    I worked at Bullhorn full-time

    Pros

    amazing culture, great pay, good benefits, most people are great (although there are always a few bad apples), fun office

    Cons

    disorganized management, lack of job specific training for entry-level administrative positions, siloed workforce, expansion is surpassing hiring, less than helpful co-workers (too busy to help new employees)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train not only about the company in general but implement some sort of mentorship program to ensure higher job satisfaction

    I have been working at Bullhorn full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very much a 'start-up' culture - lots of great perks (free wednesday lunches, friday breakfasts, first thursdays at local bars, summer outing, snacks, drinks, gym, etc. etc.) - these all definitely add to the work experience at Bullhorn

    Clear direction and leadership is transparent with whole company - you know the roadmap of where the company is going and what's being worked on. 'Town Hall' meetings every quarter are super helpful.

    If you do your job and do it well, promotions come quickly

    Cons

    Honestly...I can't really think of anything. I've had several full-time jobs post-college (research firm, tech start up, software company) so I have a few things to compare it to and Bullhorn is by far the best company I've worked for in terms of actual work, work/life balance, and care for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing - stay open and transparent. Keep your door open so that anyone in the company - from intern to manager - feels comfortable coming in and talking

    I have been working at Bullhorn full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Good executive level management
    - Work hard, play hard environment
    - Strong career development opportunities

    Cons

    - With the emphasis on speed and the constant changes, communication is sometimes lacking

    With the large increase in hiring and a number of departures, make sure the culture remains tight knit and people don't start to feel expendable

    I have been working at Bullhorn full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company has a very strong culture. The leadership team is excellent and everyone knows where we're going. The company's growing fast and is constantly evolving.

    Cons

    The flagship product had been tied to internet explorer for years and customers are frustrated by that. There's a new version that's awesome, but getting out to customers quickly will be a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Preserve the small company feel as we grow. Listen to the customers - that's what got us here in the first place.
