Poor excuse for a company

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Achievers full-time for less than a year

ProsFree food like every other startup in SF.
Colleagues are nice and friendly, but you definitely have to make an effort to fit in with the team which means drinking the "kool-aid."

ConsThis company is a complete oxymoron. All they do is pitch employee engagement and recognition, yet I have never worked at a company with worse morale or turnover. The management team is all about telling you how great the company is, yet their actions do not support that. In my career, I have learned that a strong company consists of a strong leadership team who has the experience and vision to lead a company in the right direction, a product that works, and employees who are smarter than you. This company has none of that. Also, it is run more like a fraternity than a company, where culture is forced down your throat. Their "culture" is defined by spending 24 hours a day together, partying on the weekends, and not the shared values of the employees. Those who hang out with Razor are given preferential treatment and growth is not based on talent. Unfortunately, you don't realize how unhealthy the environment is until you leave. Given how much hiring is going on in tech these days, I would strongly recommend avoiding this company at all costs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pros: Free lunch, all-you-can-eat snacks and drinks, opportunities to choose your own… Cons: For a company that specializes in engagement, I've rarely seen such a disengaged staff. Senior management hasn't the faintest clue what's going on, communication is… Advice to Senior Management: Get rid of Razor and find an actual CEO.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
