What Employees Say
I have been working at Houzz full-time
I immediately felt at home here and am consistently amazed by the connections I continue to make every day. Houzz has successfully obtained a stellar group of employees and I know many will be... lifelong friends. Positive, fun atmosphere- supportive & friendly coworkers and tons of fun activities in the office Catered breakfast on Mondays and lunch on Fridays, along with a fully stocked kitchen Quarterly birthday parties with each person's favorite dessert for everyone to try Random surprises like an espresso bar on National Coffee Day Completely covered health/vision/dental insurance and pet insurance as well Every Wednesday is Workout Wednesday and you can wear your workout gear which is awesome- office attire is already very casual and laid back Monthly Healthy at Houzz events- Past events have been aerial yoga, pilates, barre, krav maga, sparkcycle Multiple patios overlooking Petco Park- beautiful 360 windows all around the office with views of downtown Paid parking right by the office- a big win for DT SD Cold brew, kombucha on tap, nespresso machine This office is almost completely sales so you constantly hear reps cheering on each other's sales and encouraging each other to succeed- there are also lots of incentives and contests on top of the uncapped commission structure In my interview process, I was promised development and I have seen much of that take effect from a very early point. I respect and trust my manager and know he is committed to helping both me and the team succeed Work-life balance is definitely valued as all of the sales team members are hourly and never work more than a 40 hour work week and the salaried team members are also strongly encouraged to only work their 40 hours as well I am so excited to be a part of this company and can't wait to be a part of our many successes to come!
Frequent desk moves, that is really it
I have been working at Mavenlink full-time
-Great workspace. Our Salt Lake City office is for R&D, so it's mostly engineers across different teams. The huge commonality is the space. It's energetic, feels like a startup, open environment,... and located right in the heart of the city! -Operating culture is so unique! So many companies bring an engineer in just to sit them at a computer and make them responsible for a singular output - Mavenlink is all about the team and the people around you. It's a pairing environment and we've been able to strengthen each other because of this. It also means we can continue to learn and grow while we're keeping our code clean. -Great leadership! Our Director of Engineering in Utah is extremely down-to-earth. So friendly, always positive, and definitely an enabler. -Autonomy between our teams. We have 6-7 engineering teams across our product side. We each have the ability to change our scenery and join other teams or learn different disciplines. This is the perfect setting for engineers who don't want to be pigeon-holed.
-Some light growing pains are expected and are pretty minimal here. We're expanding the space to have more room for future growth. Being downtown is the energy we want, but it can be harder to access... for those who live further down south (or who make employment decisions based on office proximity versus culture). We feel startup-y. We're not a startup because we've been around since 2009 and have a proven product, but it's not an uptight or corporate culture. This is a huge pro for many, but for those who might think the startup feeling office and environment is a detractor, it could be seen as a con. We get snacks, less rigid management, games, lunches, and the best things that come with a startup-like environment, so I personally see it as only a positive!
Advice to Management
Please keep hiring based on culture! It's hard to define and requires everyone to be engaged in finding the right fit, but as long as culture and collaboration are top-of-mind, the culture will... remain throughout the company scaling. Mavenlink is breaking the mold here so just keep it up!
