With great privilieges come great responsibilities

Implementation Project Manager (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Bazaarvoice

ProsFast paced - operates like a startup
Innovative - Great product focus, short development cycles
Social - Company very actively encourages open communication and collboration
Fringe Benefits -- Free snacks, Free massages, reimbursement for personal fitness
Cool break rooms -- Unwind playing console games, board games, ping pong, watch TV/Movie
Outstanding New Hire experience
Smart Passionate People

ConsFrom the standpoint of someone coming in to Implementations:
Long hours / growing pains as they ramp up (standard for any startup)
Demanding, high-touch clients
Office location not ideal -- creating a commuting
No work from home (as a rule,although exceptions apply)
New Hires not given much time to ramp up... Normally you come in and take over someone else's job
 who is getting promoted.

Advice to Senior ManagementOverall, company is headed in the right direction and most know what they are getting into when they start. I would suggest that there is a bit smoother transition for incoming IPMs - when they begin working, perhaps not drop the entire workload of an outgoing IPM on them, rather allow the outgoing IPM to finish projects that were with 25% of being complete. There should be more shadowing, let the new IPMs ease into it. The new IPM might be really taltented but ineffective for the first 2-3 months and we dont want clients to suffer as a result.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Employees are given the freedom to take time… Advice to Senior Management: It is nice to listen passively for feedback by saying that you have an open door policy, but to be a strong leader you… More
