I have been working at Achievers full-time (More than a year)
All of the employees are very nice and willing to help. The company is growing fast so there is lots to do, and as a result I get to work with lots of different teams and get a glimpse into their worlds. At my last company, I was stuck in one job which got to be pretty boring pretty quickly. I like how much fun everyone seems to have. The new CEO seems to be a great cultural fit and has a great background. Love the team events.
I guess all companies have their pluses and minuses, but nothing really sticks out as a "con."
Advice to Management
This seems like a great market segment in which we can have a huge impact as a company. Let's grab as much market share as we can!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Achievers in September 2015.
I interviewed with the recruiter over the phone, then several sales and marketing leads over the phone and face-to-face. The cadence was inconsistent and the process was lengthy, but the recruiter did try to be communicative and serve as a central point of communication. Despite positive feedback all-around, I was informed abruptly via email that they had gone a different direction. The people seemed great for the most part, but the left hand wasn't sure what the right was doing. A degree of disorganization is to be expected during times of significant change, but after investing that much time, I would have appreciated constructive feedback to validate the lengthy interview cycle, and simply, to learn from. Overall, I think they had good intentions and appreciated the positive vibe I got from most of the interviewers.
Blackhawk Network, a leading prepaid and payments network, acquired Achievers in July 2015. “Achievers’ award-winning employee recognition platform is a complementary addition to our employee engagement portfolio and will enhance Blackhawk’s leadership position in the corporate incentives market,” said Talbott Roche, Blackhawk Network's president.
We are very happy to welcome the new President & CEO of Achievers, Eric Lochner! Eric is a proven Human Capital Management and technology leader, and we look forward to seeing his contributions to our organization.
