I have been working at Vendavo full-time (More than 3 years)
Vendavo is a collaborative, well recognized company in the CPQ space that drives huge value to its Fortune 1000 customers. Bruno's vision and commitment to our product & customers is inspiring. My peers who share in that vision are the reason I stay.
Whether you're working in engineering, sales, marketing, etc, you need to need to be wicked smart and hardworking to fit into the culture here. If that sounds like you, you will find champions and a collaborative environment worth fighting for. If not, you're probably going to struggle.
Advice to Management
While the ship is turning -- and you can see it some truly top notch product and customer focused departments -- don't forget that you need to grow the base of people who can hit the accelerator. Education, enablement, knowledge transfer, career paths are needed so we have the pool and pipeline of people ready to be successful both today and in 5-10 years.
The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vendavo (Mountain View, CA).
There was an initial phone screen with the IT hiring manager was 30 minutes and we both showed mutual interest in me working there.
Onsite: Interviewed with a panel of around 4 different people for around 30 minutes each. The interviewers seemed like they were trying to bait me into being negative, showed total lack of experience interviewing people and were more concerned about going to lunch then preforming a quality interview.
I never received a call from HR or the hiring manager after the interview was over. I waited 2 weeks and then had to call the hiring manager on their cell phone and he was absolutely embarrassed that no one had gotten back to me. He fumbled to get off the phone promising that someone would call me back with a response the next day.
No one ever called me back and from reading reviews this is the SOP for Vendavo. Highly unprofessional and more than likely a terrible place to work at.
