I worked at Verance full-time (More than a year)
Verance's culture is very supportive. Management really cares about their employees. In fact, the company feels like a family. But Verance is, of course, a business, and it has a very professional work environment.
Verance relies on just a few large customers for most of its income. This caused an unexpected layoff. Verance also could use more agile processes.
Advice to Management
Diversify products to create more customers and sources of income. Otherwise, keep doing what you're doing. You're great!
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Verance (Bridgewater, MA) in January 2017.
Disclaimer: I received my BA not so long ago in Massachusetts with an internship under my belt and have some sense of business. Below is my own perception of people and the interview process (yours may differ)
The CEO / President Jamie Blustein is a newbie. She thinks she knows a lot about stuff, but all it is a confident face talking crap (hell ya, I'd have that confidence if I were the CEO). As I interviewed with her, she seemed like a nice person, but she is clearly not fit for the job, don't know how she became the CEO by working for less than 2 years at the firm. She doesn't even have any targets for the company, a CEO without ambitions. The company won't last long, I can assert that.
Here is how I went about process:
- Applied via online job postings.
- The HR (Emily) called me to set up an interview
- Met with Jamie Blustein (CEO) for the interview
- Was followed by a second round interview with their director of marketing
- Total - 3 rounds of interview
