    I have been working at Achievers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work life balance, solid management team (both senior leadership and frontline managers), fun/progressive/transparent culture, cool product that actually delivers ROI for customers and improves the quality of people's lives. Biggest pro is the amazing people who work here.

    Cons

    The downside to having a chronically encouraging/positive work culture is that there's a pattern of people in the company straying away from providing constructive feedback. Also, the employees of the parent company, Blackhawk, tend to have the mentality of government workers so it can be frustrating to deal with HR and legal.

    Advice to Management

    The key to our success is lies within continuing to be honest and transparent with the employee base. The fact that you treat us like humans, listen to us, and admit when you made a mistake is so rare and respectable. That's what makes loyal employees! Let's not forget that.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Achievers in September 2015.

    Interview

    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.
