    Pros

    Great, Helpful culture. Feels like a very large family where everyone is willing to help. Senior Leadership is OUTSTANDING. With the continuous innovation, desire to provide the best platform for our customers, putting our customers first this company is second to none.

    Cons

    At this time, I do not have any cons. The only thing I can think of is no 401k Match

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. This is a fantastic place to work.

    Pros

    I love it here, after working at a really large company for over 8 years. It's nice to be part of a fast paced and successful organization. Great exec team, great employee perks and benefits, tough problems to solve and sink your teeth into. Really fun and challenging to be here

    Cons

    Summer hours were great this year, wish I had been able to use them more though. It's tough to do when you have projects due, but appreciate the effort. We could improve in communications from the exec team. Sometimes information isn't shared but assumed everyone knows about it already. You often find out info from unlikely sources vs. hearing it directly from your management chain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep doing what you're doing, improve communication flow. Maybe add a 401(k) match

    Pros

    I've been here for about 3 months and am still very happy I joined this company. Great culture, great people, very welcoming...HR party for new hires at our own Cheers bar, as part of the onboarding process? Very awesome. My manager is excellent and I'm really learning alot from her. Work is very challenging but rewarding at the same time. I'm never bored that's for sure. I see a ton of opportunities to learn and grow here.

    Cons

    Demandware isn't exempt from some politics between departments. Always pushing for customer success is great but puts a strain on us (makes it hard to say no and we overcommit). CEO is great and very smart, but not motivational. Work-life balance has been ok so far.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing major, just keep doing what you're doing and try to squash politics as much as possible.

    Pros

    Great culture
    Excellent and very competent exec team
    Exciting product and opportunities for the future
    Great benefits and annual bonuses for everyone

    Cons

    Growing rapidly, have to train people and get your job done at the same time
    Certain departments are difficult to work with (Legal, Admin, Accounting)
    Some managers don't spend much time on career development for their people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spread opportunities around to more people otherwise people might start getting burnt out. Plus there are a lot of smart people waiting to step up

    Pros

    Great executive leadership.
    Shared success model for both customers and internal employees.
    Above average benefits.

    Cons

    No 401K match.
    Not enough management training.
    Only sells to one industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training is needed for managers. As the company grows then so too should the employees. Not all growth can come from simply hiring for the position title. A person's potential to grow into other positions should be taken into account and then developed. Re-start the leadership development program.

    Pros

    Not sure about some of these negative reviews. Guess it depends on who you work for because my team is awesome. Yeah we work hard and it's stressful at times, but I love the pace and the pay off. Engineering has come a long way, and there's always room for improvement but my complaints are pretty minor. I love it here. Amazing culture, great benefits, and great executive leaders.

    Cons

    Can be stressful, and sometimes it seems like we're competing with the engineering team in Germany. It's gotten better, but sometimes it is an annoyance. Also a little confusing about how we've handled our recent acquisition as it doesn't seem like we're working with them at all. Everything is really kept separate so we don't know much about them and what they do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is key and you do a good job here, but keep it up. We hear a lot of rumors through the grapevine and you help clarify a lot of confusion. Don't over hire and stress out the organization by adding too many new people to the mix.
