    I have been working at HireVue full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Great people who are passionate about doing great work
    - Very talented engineering team
    - Building a product that is very innovative and changing the world. Very interesting problems to solve.
    - Very helpful and supportive culture and committed to helping customers succeed

    Cons

    - Company has grown really quickly so there are growing pains as teams and departments scale up and still maintain the culture
    - Not everyone can hack it. It is still a startup and the standards are high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Continue to value the people who helped build the company
    - Make sure everyone in the company knows about our successes and where we are headed

    Pros

    A lot of very smart and motivated people.

    Cons

    Very sales driven culture. Sales reps will make promises to customers without consulting product / engineering to determine what is possible in what timeframe. Push for feature development without thought for technical debt.

    Thank you for your review. With great successes it is sometimes a challenge to balance business objectives and product delivery without going into to much technical debt. We are excited for this year ... More

    Pros

    Benefits are fantastic. Flexible schedules. Working with some of the smartest people in the industry, plus everyone is friendly and hard working but know how to have fun as well. Culture is great for training ans building relationships as well as conducive to hard work and becoming the best you can be. Company is very open about where it's going, where it is and what needs to be done to get where they want to go.

    Cons

    They are growing very fast and have growing pains. The company is learning as they go. sometimes they come along situations they are not familiar with and take a long time to come to a decision.

    Leadership that listens at every level--if that truly happens, I believe all other issues can be worked out.

    I have been working at HireVue full-time

    Pros

    I enjoy virtually everyone that I work with. The work is challenging and rewarding with each individual able to make significant impact. The level of expectations is reasonable but challenging enough to make you rise to the occasion and improve. I am excited to go to work and I return home happy and engaged in life, without undue pressure.

    Cons

    Honestly it is working with such smart people. It is sometimes intimidating and makes me want to double check facts before I say anything and work hard to improve my skills since I want to perform on the same level as my peers. This is overall beneficial but I think it takes a while for a more timid person like me to contribute as fully as possible due to intimidation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing and preserve the culture of everyone pitching in and personal accountability. It is refreshing when something goes wrong to have everyone work together to make sure it gets fixed right.

    I worked at HireVue full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Although a lot of the culture can be "salesly" since more than half the company is sales, I thoroughly enjoyed working with the Product and Engineering groups. Everyone is talented and fun to work with.

    Salaries are on the top end of Utah companies.

    Plenty of challenges in the type of work.

    They don't work you to death and appreciate that you have a life/family outside of work.

    More perks than I care to remember or write here.

    Cons

    Personally, enterprise software is not for me. I left for a startup. But if you don't mind building enterprise software for large brands, there isn't really anything else that should stop you from applying here.

    There were times I felt the leadership culture tended to want you to prove all your ideas in a way that made me feel that I was not necessarily trusted. However, I did feel I was able to work through these issues. Management, including the executive team, definitely listens and appreciates feedback.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust those you employ. Pick your battles. Hire the right talent and then trust them. Don't question what they do strategically unless you have strong reasons.

    Fast growing company with a lot of smart people doing some amazing things. People are given the opportunity to do their best work. Company is is growth mode so there is always something new and different to work on.

    Cons

    Free snacks lead to the HireVue 10, but there is a gym nearby and a wellness plan :)

    Pros

    Growth potential is certainly available for those that seek it or want it, especially with the rate at which we are growing as a company.

    Top down culture - we practice what we preach. CEO sets the tone - lives and breathes our core values which rolls downhill. People matter, integrity, accountability, passion, ownership and leadership!

    Benefits - Work life balance, competitive salary, excellent benefits, lots of perks, free snacks, gym reimbursement, BBQ's etc.

    Leadership - The leadership team empowers the employees to take risks and think outside the box. Alignment on vision, strategy - doesn't mean management always agrees, but with exceptional talent, mutual respect, innovation and collaboration - they ultimately lead us toward the best decisions for the customers, company and staff.

    Cons

    Tremendous growth since I started but change management can be challenging and communication between departments can improve (and is improving!), especially as we continue to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep communicating and bridging the gaps that are present at times with information for remote employees. Be transparent, stay ethical and keep hiring incredibly talented people without egos.

    This is a great company that is growing quickly and with rapid growth are the typical growing pains.
    Never-the-less, the leadership team is doing an amazing job.

    It might be time to think about an east coast office say somewhere like AL or FL. :)

    Pros

    There isn't enough good to say about the company. I love everyone that I work with. The company is full of the most skilled people I've ever met, and they're all really friendly. The benefits are great, and the management does their best to know everyone by name. The culture is second to none.

    Cons

    While the culture is absolutely amazing, sometimes there is a disconnect between "get it done" and keeping the culture of a small company. Usually this isn't the case, but it happens every so often.
