    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Vendini full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Vendini has grown up a lot over the past year or so. Over the past couple of years, they made some tough but very needed decisions to let go of a few top executives and made some great additions to the leadership of the company. I've seen lots of promotions since I've been at the company and it seems to be growing into a place that rewards hard work and people who focus on solving problems. The benefits are solid and the company has made a lot of improvements to their wfh policy and overall flexibility. I find my role and department to be rewarding which hasn't always been the case and I think that the Customer Success and Sales departments are especially great departments to work in.

    Cons

    Past missteps do still haunt some people who have been at the company awhile and that can negatively contribute to the culture. However, all in all the company seems to be moving in a positive direction culturally. It's still sometimes hard to really understand the strategic vision of the company and there is sometimes disfunction that originates at the CEO / top executive level. However, the leadership team that is in place now seems to be focusing on the right things and there are fewer and fewer bizarre comments and decisions that come down from the top.

    The product and engineering team still seems to be fairly dysfunctional. While there have been improvement in this area, there's still a lot of room to grow to get the product and internal product development processes to a good place as well as establishing a level of accountability with this group when things break due to this dysfunction. There's a new product leader and also some reorganization at the top that make me hopeful this will improve in the near term, but this is the area that still needs to most improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Continue valuing people who work hard and focus on solutions. Continue investing in managers and retaining the people who are meeting and exceeding their job expectations.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vendini (Petaluma, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The process took around 2 weeks and went through a recruiter, whom I am not positive is an employee, but was very nice on the phone. He reached out to me, I believe, based on my LinkedIn profile. Researching the company, I was immediately alarmed by the number of, and consistency of, reviews from other engineers, which I raised with him and the gentleman I interviewed with subsequently. Both of them assured me that changes had taken place, the concerns raised were in the process of being addressed and that direction had changed. The in-person interview took place with 2 members of management and involved whiteboarding and discussion. I was left with the impression that they were hiring for maintaining and growing the systems that they were supposed to be changing and that there was little time for investment in overhauling the systems that other reviewers complained of and that that may not have been as high of a priority as I felt had been expressed earlier. Not hearing back from anyone after the process was over was especially frustrating. Overall, I didn't get much of an idea of how the company intended to grow business-wise or in the technology that would support it and I didn't get the idea that engineers were well supported. Your mileage may vary. I found the other reviews here to be consistent with what I experienced.
