    I worked at Onvia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Onvia provides ease of access to everyone on each team and encourages communication across the hierarchy. They are the leader in their field of SaaS for government bid information - it's nice to work for the top dog! The HR team is very in tune with employee needs and management is consistent with reviews and one-on-ones.

    Cons

    The path for growth is well-earned here, but it's not attractive for many in the sales/account management teams. The bigger the book of business, the more the risk, the easier it is to have very strong months or very devastating months. It is salary and commission at least.

    Product Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Onvia (Seattle, WA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    During my interview with OnVia, my first initial impression with upper management is very poor. From my own perspective, they like to talk down to you and if you don't agree with their perspective on a design solution... then you're immediately "wrong" and blatantly told so during the interview. It's a very cold, single-sided and unwelcoming interview experience. The team at OnVia don't have their act together. There was a huge disconnect between how the interview went with the design team and management. Internal communication is terrible at this company. There's no cohesion in regards to the overall interview experience - It felt rush and hacked together. For example, the interview took half a day and they ultimately decided they no longer needed the position. It's by far the most unorganized company I have experienced. They could have figured that out with an internal meeting before wasting candidate's time and parking expenses. You're just left with a tasteless experience afterwards. This speak volumes about an organization's culture, vision and management. I'm not surprised by the negative reviews based on this one instance and glad I wasn't offered the position. There's better options in the Seattle area if you're looking into gaining real experience and establishing a career in big data, UI/UX and consulting.
