The benefits package is good overall with a lot of options depending on the particular medical situation someone is in (high deductible with HSA, low deductible with more coverage, etc.). The pricing for dental and vision is very reasonable. My biggest complaint is PTO. We have study after study that shows the minimal amount of PTO we have here in the US is not sufficient for people to really have a high quality of life. Yet Avalara is a global company, so we have European counterparts that get a lot more time off based on their own country's mandates. If it's the right thing to do for your people, it's the right thing - it shouldn't take a government regulation to make that benefit consistent for everyone.

Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

The healthcare costs are not commensurate with other companies in tech. The fact that you can’t get paid for remaining PTO upon departure is ridiculous.
