Pros

They give you the opportunity to work from home. Great parties where you meet everybody. Relaxed and very fun company. They are the very best at what they do.

Cons

Sometimes the schedule can be a little tough. Week ends, very early in the morning and holidays. No benefits if you work part time from home.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work you are doing.

    Awful Accounting and Finance Department

    I worked at Bazaarvoice full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    This company has a good basis for its culture and there are a lot of perks such as a good base salary, bonus, tons of free snacks, happy hours, excess food all the time, etc... Also, vacation time is "unlimited" but be wary of this as it depends on your manager which vary greatly across department and function. It can be a lot of fun it seems if you are working in certain departments but that's where the "pro's" cease to exist.

    Cons

    I am speaking only for the accounting department b/c it would seem that other areas of the company may actually be ok places to work-aka professional, fun, good work/life balance, promotion opps, etc... The management in Finance is terrible with the exception of maybe 2 people who aren't running the show so to speak. Those who are "running the show" belittle employees and ask them to do the impossible quite often including certain tasks that may question your ethical values. Time off is always granted with a caveat if it is even approved and there is one manager in particular who is particularly rude and condescending to everyone yet nobody does anything about it despite it being very obvious. Certain people work incredibly hard and others do little to nothing and make much more $$$ to boot-this is easy to figure out when the payroll files are unlocked. They will taunt you with a high salary and high promise but trust me, this is not the accounting department for you if you are expecting any form of professionalism. Highly unrecommended.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the bad managers and hire some people who have the company's values in mind. Just because they have the right experience doesn't mean they are good people managers and this is almost more important in my opinion. Listen to the complaints being brought up and take action! People are very unhappy and you just assume they will stay out of necessity but after enough, they will finally go like the rest. Wake up
