Pros

Volusion knows the value of its development team and works hard not only to keep them happy, but leave them alone where it counts to do so. Developers are allowed to choose or make their own tools, design their own processes, and make their own schedules. Though software quality takes a back seat to business needs like any company, you do get plenty of chances to do something cool.

Cons

The corporate culture is somewhat conservative in terms of innovation and envelope-pushing, and conversely, the office environment is a little too much on the rambunctious side. Upper management is too involved in day-to-day product direction decisions, especially visual ones, and that slows down the pace of green-field development so it seems glacial sometimes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Know your strengths. You are great a building a customer-service-focused business. You are not UI pioneers.

    Pros

    Volusion definitely gives meaning to the phrase "work hard, play hard." Without a doubt they care about employees and make it fun to work here. There are business and technical challenges to make even the most seasoned person get excited. Management is rock solid in their decisions and it makes it easy to want to work here.

    Cons

    With the amount of growth there are definitely some challenges with meeting new people, but with all the team builders happening there is time to get to know each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wish we had more visibility into how the company is doing. We trust you but would like to hear the excitement at a global level.
