I have been working at Jobvite as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

-Small but growing company that in that sweet pre-IPO phase.
-The people that work at Jobvite are down to earth real people.
-Ideas are encouraged, you can access any of the C level at anytime.
-You're judged on what you bring to the table , not what time you walk in or out of the door.
-Great location

Cons

-Not the big guys, they don't have shuttle buses or daily sushi brought to your desk.
-It's a start up, so it's not for everybody.
-You're expected to pull your weight and work, but it's a job that's what you're supposed to do.

    I have been working at Jobvite full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have seen Jobvite grow from 9 people to over a hundred and am still inspired each day by the camaraderie amongst teams, hard working employees, and bright ideas shared and implemented. I am excited each day to work with our fabulous customers and colleagues. I have been promoted several times and appreciate the growth opportunities.

    Cons

    I live in the city and the company is south. I miss working in San Francisco!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider yearly employee reviews for growth and development.

    I worked at Jobvite full-time

    Pros

    -company is going places...just not anytime soon

    Cons

    -culture is that of a "small company"--not a true start-up
    -they have a hard time recruiting top talent/maintaining good talent
    -you will be overworked and underpaid
    -It's a very corporate ladder that you will need to climb. There are not a ton of opportunities to get to senior level anytime soon
    -management has a tough time identifying these underlying factors and there is a lot of "favoritism" throughout the company
    -located in Burlingame
    -company carries a lot of "dead weight" by outsourcing to their India team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -listen to your employees and take initiatives to improve the culture and work environment for everyone working at Jobvite
