    Good company, but lacking in leadership and solid vision at the top.

    I worked at Auctiva full-time

    Pros

    Competitive salaries and benefits. Good work place, cares about employees. Innovative.

    Cons

    Upper management is lacking. There used to be more of a family feeling and culture, but that is gone. A lot of turn over in key leadership positions makes it feel unstable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Culture is very important. When your employees feel connected and individually important to your company's success they will stay. Stabilize the leadership level and don't shift development teams so often.

    I worked at Auctiva full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ability to work on the latest technology with other very skilled software developers. Very open to change and trying out new ideas. Able to recognize talent and advance quickly if you deserve it. Solid software development practices and departments. Very nice place to work. Very competitive salaries for Northern CA.

    Cons

    While I was there, the constant shuffling of teams and projects left something to be desired. Made it a bit hard for a manager to get a core group developers to work together cohesively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm sure management is different than while I was there - but I would say make sure to take care of your good team leads. Because they are the cornerstone of all the projects, and if they jump ship it's a huge hit to the company.
