I worked at Varolii full-time (More than a year)
Positive vibe, happy people, decent pay, and good benefits. I genuinely enjoyed my time at this company and still maintain friendships with many of my ex-coworkers.
Questionable management decisions (at the time I was working there). For example, when I started, everyone had a laptop. But they decided to phase laptops out in favor of old-school desktop PCs. Being tethered to the office goes against their values of work/life balance. Hopefully this has changed.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Varolii (Seattle, WA) in January 2013.
Pretty straight forward. No surprises. Two phone screens, an all day in person interview with key stakeholders. It was a management position and I was pleasantly surprised that about half the interviewers would have been direct reports. You can learn a lot about a company and position listening to questions from frontline employees.
Reasons for Declining
This was a trouble spot. I was recruited by Varolii, they called me. I was clear at every step of the process with my salary expectation - meet my current compensation. I was told several times this was no problem and my expectations were in line with the range for the position. However the offer letter was 10% below my current compensation. When I reached out to Varolii HR about the delta I was told take it or leave it. I left it. Had they told me up front they would not meet my current compensation it would have saved everyone a lot of time.
