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

Pros

Fast-paced, hard-working, smart colleagues. Great opportunities to gain leadership experience. Fun and motivating environment. Good company values and a focus on putting the customer at the center of our business.

Cons

Up until a few months ago I would have said cross-department collaboration, but I believe there is a renewed sense of importance around collaborating across the org.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue focusing on collaboration and on delighting our customers

    Pros

    Very laid back, flexible hours, great offices, great people.

    Cons

    Definitely got a little of the tech company CULTure feeling there. The product isn't super interesting but you can tell there are a lot of people "drinking the Koolaid" as you might hear in the tech industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on more innovative product developments.

    Former Employee - Bazaarvoice Content Analyst in Austin, TX
    Former Employee - Bazaarvoice Content Analyst in Austin, TX

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

    Pros

    Interview, training, rep support and feedback are all exemplary, the work is fun, and changes in policy and client-specific details are always easy to understand. Upper management are visionaries, very inspiring and admirable.

    Cons

    Senior leadership has very optimistic goals and ideals, common to most startups. The ambitions are lofty and the processes are well thought-out. However, high turnover means that middle-management always ends up with something to prove, which can be a disaster unless the personality is a good fit. Hiring practices in the management stratum seem to fall short of both leadership ideals and CSR needs, as they are based on different criteria than those that would support what the company claims to want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Zero in on confirming that management is in line with professed culture and values. Those things can fall by the wayside in the nitty-gritty of the everyday, overlooked for basic management and Peter Principle reasons, and soon you've lost all contact with the reason you loved the company in the first place. It's not enough to talk the talk, when the people you hire to steward your workforce don't know how to walk the walk.
