I have been working at Bazaarvoice full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Good pay, smart people, awesome culture. People with bad attitudes tend to weed themselves out; Bazaarvoice tends to hire fantastic talent with great attitudes.

Cons

The location on 360 is a bit difficult with traffic. The company is growing fast and they sometimes suffer from growing pains.

    Pros

    -Fast-paced environment
    -(still) a number of good quality people
    -Reputation

    Cons

    -Senior management is completely disconnected
    -New Execs/GMs don't fit the culture - one in particular seems incapable or unwilling to make necessary adjustments, and is difficult to be around because he's not particularly friendly
    -Pay is below average and raises are hard to come by unless you're on the Executive Leadership Team
    -All good requisitions are filled externally
    -TOO MANY PEOPLE
    -Stick around long enough and you become a manager, even if you don't have anyone under you or you haven't produced anything of value

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to get our house in order! The exodus is beginning and will only get worse come August when the long-termers depart...Some of the leadership should step aside and let other, more experienced business leaders take over and turn this company into a true success.

    I worked at Bazaarvoice full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Some people in certain groups are fairly cool; free drinks, snacks, etc; quite a bit of $ spent at company meetings and parties.

    Could possibly provide an adequate environment for a recent college graduate or someone hired to a management position.

    Cons

    Might not be allowed to perform the job for which you are hired; many people aren't genuinely all that friendly; some managers are fond of "micromanaging"; culture feels phony.

    Probably not a good fit for a professional with experience, a family, etc, especially if not a manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to forget that some of your employees have worked for companies other than Bazaarvoice. Also, a lot of talent is overlooked, marginalized, or simply wasted because an employee doesn't fit a particular description or belong to a particular social group. Finally, don't speak on behalf of employees you don't truly know.
