I have been working at Volusion full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

I get to work with smart, passionate, creative people that are as driven as I am. We have some pretty cool perks, I especially enjoy the Texas Independence Day feast. Lastly, I have been able to make some really good friends, which I find really important when you think about the amount of time people spend at work.

Cons

We are growing so fast it's hard to get to know everyone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep investing in people.

    I have been working at Volusion full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The direct ability to positively impact the business with minimal layers of bureacracy has been refreshing. The management team has one focus and that's to make the company and the products the best in the industry. The employees are super motivated and the environment is fun to be a part of.

    Cons

    Classic startup growing pains one would expect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with the investment in the people, product development and technology.

    I have been working at Volusion full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    We do "Happy Surveys" at work and the Leadership at Volusion really listens to our suggestions. We asked and we got:
    *More time off (including our Birthday!).
    *Bring your dog to work Fridays.
    *Onsite gym or gym stipend.
    *Healthy snacks - lots of fruit yum!
    *Better 401K plans.
    *Great activity rooms w/pool tables, ping pong, video games & golf practice

    Not to mention the perks we've had for awhile:
    *Casual dress
    *Free Yoga classes
    *Volunteer days off
    *Beer Fridays

    Also, In my role I have a great balance of creative freedom and help when I need it.

    Cons

    I'm painting a rosy picture, but of course there are challenges. It can be difficult to engage other departments at times, and I feel we would benefit from a more 'Systems Based Thinking' approach. Having employees in 2 buildings causes a bit of separation.

    This is something that can be worked on however. I've worked with several software companies and in other industries, so I know what's out there and with Volusion I actually enjoy coming to work every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish we could have company-wide "All Hands" meetings once a quarter to discuss the direction of the company to give all departments more insight into our vision. I myself get a lot of information in my position, but I can see where other departments are less informed and may need motivation through this insight.
