    I worked at Achievers

    Pros

    People are nice. The culture is great although it might turn some people off. There seems to be a lot of transparency.

    Cons

    The company is at the phase where it is growing and thus is having trouble holding onto its start-up culture.

    I worked at Achievers full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you're junior, you can have a chance to get entry-level experience, which is great to build on. Sometimes it's hard to get that chance.

    If you're in software development, this is a really good place for you. The software team is protected from the things that happen at Achievers, they're a happy bunch and so they should be! :)

    Company markets itself very well

    Employees can use the product, which is a nice everyday bonus with points

    Cons

    **Disclaimer: the positive reviews you see in Achiever's profile are company-mandated. Employees get cash-equivalent rewards for writing their review when they begin at the company. The company will probably comment on this to defend themselves, but that is the bare-bone truth.

    Unfortunately the company is experiencing a down-turn. Business has fallen, employees are unhappy and leaving in large numbers, there are many more competitors offering similar products.

    Job security risk is a common theme amongst all teams except for software. Job risk flare-ups happen once every 7/8 months consistently.

    Unstable company structure that falls apart every 6 months. Major executives get hired and fired regularly (the CEO most recently), valuable VPs leave regularly (leaving teams without direction for months on end), board members cancel/change things promised to employees without warning or explanation.

    Company politics run rampant. I'm sure if you scroll past the company-mandated positive reviews, you'll find true reviews that compare Achievers to a high school. This applies even more to senior members of the company, which is scary.

    Not ethical. There are long-tenured and even new managers that work on white lies and rumours. HR is not an exception unfortunately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to simplify your efforts, get back to your values and code of ethics. Treat people with respect and follow-through on your goals. Everyone is running in circles, afraid other groups are doing something behind their backs. It's unprofessional and, as is very evident right now, bad for business.
