    Pros

    Many amazing people who are smart and passionate. Good work life balance. Now that they are unshackled from BV, they can return to being a great company.

    Cons

    Prior to the acquisition by BV, it became a very toxic place. It was the corporate equivalent of the Hunger games.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember your roots and what made the company great in the first place. Best of luck!

    Pros

    Strong Company: 6 year old Multi Tennant SaaS softward company that has scaled to 1,500 clients world wide. PowerReviews has clients at every size: very large (Staples, ToysRUs, Gap, 3M, REI, Drugstore.com), medium (beats by Dr. Dre, Sports Authority, Forever 21, GNC, Callaway, Brookstone) and small (Sanrio, Golf Discount, Old Time Candy) in the B2C and B2B space. This number and range of clients makes for a strong company.

    Great Social Commerce Product: Social is a very hot space. The PowerReviews product is proven and measurable in driving traffic, conversion & sales. It is installed on 5,500 websites worldwide. The heritage products, Reviews and Ratings, AnswerBox and Brandshare (open content syndication) are preferred by consumers vs the competition. And, the company has a proven facebook offering, developed on the open graph in an innovative way.

    Innovative: The approach to the product is innovative, focused on the user. The multi tenant SaaS architecture, InLine SEO, structured data, facebook integration and open syndication are a few examples.

    The company is growing, attracting incredible engineers and impressive new clients.

    Honest, high integrity leadership. Every single person can make a difference and grow their skills, accomplishments and career.

    Cons

    Growing Pains: As with any company that is growing and in a hot space, PowerReviews is going through growing pains -- tension between the maintaining the existing culture and evolving it with the new people and having systematic, consistent communication so all are on the same page are 2 examples.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on innovating the product and offering. A great product is at the core of an energized team and great sales.

    Communal attitude
    Positive intentions by every employee
    Great benefits for a company it's size.

    Cons

    Becoming too focused on the bottom line - Maintaining staff is extremely important. Too much focus on the bottom line will cost the company key assets - Staff.....Although a great place to work - we need more fun....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose the culture when trying to grow. Remember people are an asset - not a commodity and are as important as cash being made.

    Pros

    The job was extremely easy with great pay. Work from home was great.

    Cons

    Management did not understand or communicate with employees. There was so much room for improvement but they were not willing to listen to suggestions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees when they say they can improve the company with no investments in time or money.
