    I have been working at Bazaarvoice full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been a BV'er for over two years now and I love working here just as much as I did on my first day. Like every company, we are constantly going through change. The Execs are transparent about what the company is trying to do and I appreciate that. Love my team. I have the best VPs, managers and teammates I could ask for. My ideas and opinion are respected. As for the company itself, great culture, we celebrate our achievements, BV offers a competitive salary with room for growth, excellent benefits, flexible hours with work from home options. BV truly understands the importance of work-life balance. I could never go back to the old school management style of the corporate world.

    Cons

    We all work hard and play hard. When it's time to work, we get it done, even if that means working on the weekends or in the late evening sometimes. This doesn't happen often, but it's a trade off for having so much flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Thank you for keeping all of us moving forward. #OTOD

    I worked at Bazaarvoice full-time

    Pros

    cool culture if you're at HQ in Austin, but if you're in a remote office it's very removed from that and it much less friendly. SaaS product is solid, clients see that value.

    Cons

    Tons of turnover w/ mgmt (I had 4 mgrs in one year) so zero consistency with team direction, goals, or feedback or even product positioning. The Ad product isn't robust enough to sell, advertisers want more than just data and desktop banners. Tons of emergency forecasting meetings and fire drills around saving face on wall street. The $ isn't enough for the constant stress and BS to put up with.

    Advice to Management

    don't lean on the ad biz to save the company

    Pros

    This is by far the best place I have worked. The equipment and technologies we work on are cutting edge and we get to work with some of the smartest people in the business. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    The healthcare and benefits could be better, but I think thats the way the market is right now.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for keeping us engaged and informed. Keep doing what you do.

    Pros

    There used to be some smart people there. Emphasis on "used to be."

    Cons

    No longer smart people there. Ridiculously poor leadership. Zero vision.

    Advice to Management

    Try to sucker someone into buying the company quickly before it loses all semblance of value.
