    Excellence and Humility

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Mateo, CA

    ProsCoworkers are the highlight in this amazing company. I am constantly in awe of the incredible talent, yet easygoing attitude of everyone. I consider it an honor to be able to learn from such an elite group of people who nevertheless are encouraging and friendly. The combination makes this company a gem in the crowded startup scene.

    The work is excellent, and the level of independence given and expected is incredible. It's a learning style unlike any other, and one that is suited only for those who seek their own prize, not for those who cannot function without supervision.

    ConsThe office location could be a bit better. It recently had a break-in and the property management did not take any steps to mitigate it. If I was Conviva, I'd be angry at the nonchalance about security.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou are doing things extremely well. I have no complaints and too much praise.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    All over the place (in more ways than one)

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- Some of the smartest, nicest, most humble people you'll ever work with (at HQ) - no question is ever a stupid question
    - Amazing customer base on both coasts - almost every media company out there speaks to or works with Conviva in some capacity ("all over the place" as a PRO)
    - Kind of flexible hours

    Cons- Little to no training for your actual job (except perhaps for engineering?)
    - Sales team is very junior and are honestly not the best people to sell Conviva's products
    - The analytic product seems to want to compete with other more established tools out there - yet Product is slow to move and Sales continues to paint an inaccurate picture to customers about the product's capabilities ("all over the place" as a CON)
    - Priorities fluctuate constantly and there seems to be more emphasis on products, features, and customers that should not take precedence over others ("all over the place" as a CON)
    - Too political for such a small company
    - Low employee morale is almost palpable

    Advice to Senior ManagementStick with what you know best instead of trying to be all things to all customers; listen to customer facing teams and take their feedback into consideration. Encourage debate. Ask your employees how they see themselves fitting into the company and getting along with other teams and actually try to foster those goals.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great company, great challenge, great people.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Mateo, CA

    ProsMarket leader. Great products. Great assets. Smart (very, very) people. And, of course, free food.
    This company could change the entire industry.

    ConsToo many decisions taken based on intuition, which is usually the case for every startup. The company is also very tech-centric when it should be more about service.
    Compensation should be higher.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMeasure everything. Have numbers, rather than opinions.
