    I worked at Avalara full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They have a kegerator. Immediate co-workers were great to work with.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is clueless ... Over the previous 18 months they brought in alot of very experienced talent but the existing leadership has no interest in changing their ways or seeking acting on the advice of employees.

    Compensation is poor, especially if you don't have stock options.

    If you don't work in Bainbridge Island office the company really doesn't care about your work environment. If you work in BI the office is completely overcrowded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time for the founders to move on ... they've done all they can for this company and at this point they're just holding it back. Management needs to listen to the advice of their experienced employees and not be afraid of change.
