I have been working at Volusion full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Volusion has a really good atmosphere for developers. They have very talented people with a lot of experience. The best part of working as a developer at Volusion is their culture of iteration and problem solving. They work hard and play hard. If you like a atmosphere that pushes the envelope with technology while shooting Nerf guns, riding scooters and while being provided catered food, then you will love working at Volusion.

Cons

Be prepared to work in a open floor environment. This is not a con for most people because it helps collaboration.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't change the culture.

    Cons

    Communication style of team managers is often aggressive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper-management is doing a good job leading the company. Mid and lower level managers need communication training when dealing with employees.

    I have been working at Volusion full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I wasn't looking for employment when Volusion first contacted me about a position. Every step of the process, from the initial contact, to the first day on the job, convinced me that I had made the right decision. My experience so far has been positive, and Volusion has demonstrated on numerous occasions that one of their priorities is to create a workplace where you look forward to coming in on Monday morning.

    * Supportive, helpful, team members
    * An HR department that works hard to keep employees happy and engaged.
    * Resources to help one grow as an employee

    Cons

    I started working when I was a teenager, and have been in the workforce for over twenty years. There is no such thing as a perfect place to work.

    Volusion is growing quickly, and while HR does a great job of getting you acclimated on the first day. After the initial orientation from HR, however, department-level on-boarding can be disorganized or non-existent. Make some friends in your department quickly, and ask for help. Your peers will do their best to make sure you're getting what you need.

    Members of upper management all seem to be great at what they do. Some in middle management would do well with a round of leadership training to learn how to build positive relationships with their staff members, and communicate appropriately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a great vision. Volusion is a great place to work, and with some attention to middle management, it would almost be perfect!
