AccessData – Why Work For Us?


AccessData Helps Uncover the Story Buried Deep Within Digital Data

Around the globe, our customers in law enforcement, government agencies, corporations and law firms rely on our premier digital investigation products and services to help them uncover key evidence buried in digital data to piece together the story to support their claim – whether for a legal matter, regulatory compliance or internal investigation. Our innovative, integrated and secure portfolio of solutions and single backend database―coupled with our deep roots in digital forensics and e-discovery―make AccessData a leader in the industry. After nearly 30 years, we’re more passionate than ever about revolutionizing digital investigations and litigation support. If you share that passion, consider joining our growing team!

New Company Focus, New Management

One of the corporate values at AccessData is being as open and transparent as possible with our team members, so we’d like to demonstrate that by honestly addressing a question you may be asking yourself right now: “Why do these guys have so many bad reviews on Glassdoor?”

Here is the story. Like a lot of companies in the B2B software industry, we faced some major challenges in the aftermath of the Great Recession. Instead of focusing on our core business, we jumped at too many emerging opportunities, with poor results, and that forced us to make a variety of tough decisions over the past few years, including the sale of one of those emerging businesses, as well as significant changes in our leadership. Unfortunately, those years were tough on some of our employees and – well – they have let those feelings be known here on this site.

But we want you to know that AccessData is now a new company under new management and we’re worth a new look! Starting in 2016, we refocused on our core strength as an innovative digital forensics software company and we’re now extending our leadership in this category with strong growth in key strategic products. As a result of this improvement in our business and corporate culture, we now have a stable workforce and a number of exciting product development projects underway that are generating buzz among our customers.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of AccessData. We want to make sure that our digital forensics tools continue to be the go-to products in our key markets worldwide over the coming years and decades. That’s where you come into the picture. So give our all-new company an all-new look.

    I worked at AccessData full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at AccessData provided a unique experience to learn from some amazing people and grow at a very fast pace. Change was the only constant, pushing employees to shift directions and adapt. The company's financial health was more solid than most employees realized, but at the end of the day my` commute was too extreme so I had to look elsewhere. Overall, the experience was worthwhile.

    Cons

    My original manager was wonderful, but unfortunately he outgrew the company and when he left, his replacement did not know how to manage. He's gone now, but it took too long for senior management to acknowledge the issue.

    Advice to Management

    The financial numbers are more solid than employees realize, but the strategy needs to be more clearly and regularly communicated.

    Interview

    Short, sweet, and to the point. Met with manager and several team members. Asked basic questions regarding C# skills. Interviewed right after lunch, so it is possible people were tired and not up to asking challenging questions.
